    Not much gaming. But a little. No video editing. £1200 for the price

    Thats a powerful machine with a lot of RAM, if its only being used for the odd game and some office work then you could maye drop the ram to 1gb and reduce the cpu to a 3500+. Wich might save some cash? I would go for a samsung rather than a seagate - just cause i prefer a quiet drive

    Sorry I can't see a spec or anything? Am I missing something? All I see is "Going to build a new pc for a friend of mine. =D

    Sorry then for saying you need more info, my bad, I can't see a spec or anything for some reason.

    Looks a little overkill if you ask me.

    I would probably downgrade the Graphics card to a 6800 GT and also drop the memory to just 1gig.

    Other than that - damn fine rig

    Get a gig of corsair value ram (no OC right?), an x800gt, and a 3500+ with a silent cooler
