    Are you looking to get a gaming system pre-built, or could you build it yourself?

    Also, how much is your budget?

    well im doing a computer building course in spetember for a year and was going to get the system in a bout a years time so i could build or buy
    my budget will be about £1000

    the only thing about buliding it myself is windows. windows xp home costs £300 on its own. unless anyone know any cheaper place to get it not pirate copy. dont wont any thing out side the law.

    Good prices, great customer service:
    www.tekheads.co.uk
    Good prices and good customer service:
    www.overclock.co.uk
    Good prices and decent customer service:
    www.chillblast.com
    Great prices but ok customer service:
    www.overclockers.co.uk
    Great prices on monitors and some other bits:

    If you want one built - then e-mail Kustom, tell then what you want to do with the system and what your budget is and they'll spec it up for you

    EDIT: Get an OEM copy of XP Home with the componenets you buy - £50ish

    Since you're not building for another year, its not worth asking now, technologies will change (Crossfire and the new ATI cores may actually be OUT <- poke at Andrzej) and you may have more of an idea for what you want.

    At least wait untill 3 months before you actually build.

    I would wait until 2weeks before you build. That would mean more cash and more price-drops and more technology
