    That system will do just fine with games. And pretty much anything else you want to do. Hopefully they are giving you a good price on it.

    Thanks for your help Steimy & UrDady.
    The system will be costing me £2559 not sure if thats a good deal or not? i no i can have a system built for less than that but i won't have the piece of mind like i'll get with this one.
    Thanks again.

    i am not sure the currency converter i used is correct, but if it is that is about $5,025 US Dollars. Which although it is a good system
    is WAY WAY too high. No you would not get a whole system warranty like the premade system. But each part you buy would have a manufacturers warranty. Plus with the amount you save you could just replace what breaks and still save money.
    My system cost me $1050 US Dollars without the monitor, Hard drives, surround sound and optical drives as i already had those, and it is great for gaming. The processor is a bit less than yours. It is a core2duo 2.13GHz, but i have it overclocked to 2.5GHz per core so it is really runnig at 5GHz total.

    here is what i bought, and built it myself (first timer)
    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233006
    Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130051
    Graphics: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150182
    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817194004
    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115004
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146526

    If that calculation is correct i would look at the individual parts to build it yourself at a reputable online store that ships to your area. I know a guy over there and if you like i can ask for some good stores for you. I bought all my stuff at Newegg.com but i do not know where they ship outside of the US.

    <<EDIT>>

    Also if you build it yourself use the money to buy a few raptors. Then that computer will run even faster!!
