He's more into truck driving and farming simulators but does also play 'shoot em up' type games.

Can somebody dvise where to start with a spec?

Sorry....no. We have a 22" Samsung TV with HDMI in that he will use to start with and he will look to upgrade later. He also has a basic mouse, keyboard and steering wheel.

He just needs the PC. He currently has a USB wifi dongle but he does fancy a PCI card (will he get a better connection?)

He will need windoze though

I'll look into that. I've never built a PC before but have changed cards. Is it relatively straightforward?

I meant to spec the Gigabyte one originally in my own post actually. Gigabyte have a UK based RMA centre (I think), also it has a higher base clock.

OK. I don't really understand over clocking (other than it gets more performance and generates more heat). Will I be doing that with the recommended systems?
