Hey again guys and Girls

I feel that my current spec is tireing due to the new tech available. So I think it's time to build something new. I will be building a either just before Christmas or in the New Year.

I want a Conroe spec system that is going to be used for gaming, Coding, Graphics, Website Developmet and other basic applications.

The good news is that I already have Monitor, Speakers, Keyboard and soon a new mouse. So it's just the tower I need.

I would like 2GB of Memory and a sufficient amount of storage space i.e. 500GB. I would also like 2 DVD RW.

Can all this be achived for £900 or less?

Cheers for help guys.
