I'm going to buy and build a new PC for my brother's birthday. He likes to play games and will want to do the usual net/email/mp3/photos stuff that everyone uses their computer for these days too. I've lurked around these forums for a while and would be really grateful if you could take a look at my spec and check it over for me.
I've tried to get a decent balance between something which will be nice to use/last a while whilst giving pretty good gaming performance. I'd like to do a modest overclock with this system, how far am I likely to go on the standard cooler and are the motherboard/RAM/CPU good candidates? (I'm not 100% convinced by the 8600!)
Any changes/improvements (within a total budget of £600 including Google checkout ) much appreciated!
Thanks a lot for your help
