    Gaming PC

    I've got £600 to spend on a new gaming PC. I've been looking at an opteron 146 system but can't find stock anywhere. I need something that will be silent, able to run all the latest games (including Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion), have 250gb+ for file storage and have a wireless PCI card.

    Could someone be so kind as to spec a system from scan for me?

    Thanks

    That lot from scan will cost arounf £680, Feel free to rip that lot to bits, you could maybe change the hiper to a seasonic (if budget allows) and possibly try and get an xgto2 to boost bang for buck but on paper that machine should play most things reasonably well and not be too loud. hope its of some use
