Hello,

I am a first time computer builder and I need some advice on parts. I already have a screen, but aside from that i need pretty much everything, ie OS, keyboard and mouse.

It would be used mostly for gaming but also general use as well.

Thanx,
Joe

What size screen do you have and what resolution do you game at, for a few more £'s it might be worth swapping the 4850 for a 4870.

Thanks for the reply.

I have a 1920 by 1080 screen, although I probably wont game at that level as the right parts are well out of my budget.

I could even squeeze a HD 4870 in there. I'll come up with a list of parts from Overclockers.
