Looking to upgrade. My pc is almost 3 yrs old now.

I want dual graphics cards as I have 2 monitors and run game clients on each monitor. 2 gig of ram, and plent of HDD space is also essential.

I don't need monitors, sound card/speakers, mouse/keyboard or optical drives.
I need everything else.

Case?..Powersupply?..

Assuming you dont need these one of the Core 2 Duo bundles plus a 7950 or an x1950 which are both essentially 2 gpu's, plus the bundle boards do not do SLI or XFire.

Assuming by this point that still sounds interesting, that should leave you £120 at least for 2 x 250gb(or 300gb) drives (cheaper then buying 1 larger).

The specification by t31os looks pretty good but to give you another option here is one that will be faster at stock (apart from the graphics card) and still gives you good overclocking options.
