Hi guys, I have not been checking on whats the best hardware to buy these days for the last few months. I need some help on what to buy for my new PC I am going to build. The PC I have just now has done me great over the last year but I wan't to build a new one and give this one I have just now to my sister. My current setup has the following...

DFI LanParty UT NF4 Ultra-D (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Winchester 90nm
GeIL 1GB (2x512MB) PC3200 Value Dual Channel Kit CAS2.5
XFX GeForce 6800 GT 256MB DDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)

I am a hardcore gamer and also do a but of video editing and music production, my buget is around £1000-£1200. I have a monitor, mouse and keyboard, speakers so need to help me with that. Just need some advice on what Mobo, CPU, GFX card, RAM. I am a bit lost these days on what will be compatible with what etc.

Thanks! :)

youre comps pretty sweet as it is why not double the ram an whack in a dual core althlon if board takes it an maybe a 7900gs :)

if you really want to spend a ton of money go for a intel conroe chip needs ddr2 memory and get sli cards or a crossfire solution :)
