Long story short, I'm on a medical retirement pension, giving me current system (a top of the range one from here but 3 years old) to my brother, and would like a new system that can defeat WARIO himself!!!!

Don't really care about the cost. But, I'd like the OS to be on a SSD with enough space for a few games, and the rest to run off of probably a 1TB+ Hard drive. I want it to be as fast, and quiet as possible, and I is willing to pay out of my bum for it!!!!

Also, I'm not in the physical condition to assemble PCs anymore, so I would need OCUK to prebuild it for me if that is possible.

Thank you please :)

Err and if it matters, I've got about 1TB of music and stuff ill be transferring over to this machine, so Im prob looking at having at least a 2TB regular hard drive if possible.

I'll take a new KB, and Mouse, but I don't need a new monitor immediately. Currently have a 32" LCD, only 720p though I intend on getting a 40-42 inch LED reasonably soon after if not at the same time as the PC.

add to it a keyboard & mouse of your choice, maybe something like the Microsoft SideWinder X4 Gaming Keyboard and Razer Abyssus 3500 mouse.

You can however, phone up OcUK, and they will gadly build the PC for you.

I'm guessing you want this PC to also last you a very long while?

Well my last rig from here lasted pretty much 3 years. I think I'd want at least two years out of this one.

I wish I was rich :(

P.S. SLI 580's and watercool them. Overclock a 2600K to 4.8Ghz on water. 8GB RAM, Z68 board with all the features... a topper of a case, 800D would by my choice for water cooling.

There you have a minted WC system that will last 5 years+ and doesn't cost the Earth.

Can I get that prebuilt by OC though??? I'm out of breath these days when I walk 10 paces. No more buildings of Jesus rigs for me.
