hi all need some help with speccing for a purely gaming pc.

my budget is 2150 this is to included everything expect a keyboard.

want it to look nice and sleek,powerfull to run any game going,case cannot be horrid looking and have a window if poss.

i hear the 860 is the better chip for gaming so this would be my cpu of choice,unless there's something better but i have good reviews of this chip.


i dont want a flame war on the hardware just honest replies ect.

cheers

Ryan111, why have you specced a mouse but no keyboard?

Woodstock, do you need peripherals or just the tower? Do you need an operating system aswell?

no need for keyboard or printers ect its purely for gaming and i prefer the 860 over the i7 920,better for gaming from what i have been reading over the last week.

wait a bit and get a 5870, no point spending 540 quid on 2 285s which will likely get beat by sub 300 card in a week
