    £800 system

    Price out your ideal system if you had £800, I'll make my suggestion later so as not to bias anything. Don't bother including mice/keyboards/monitors/speakers

    Thats gets you a top of the range motherboard with hardware audio solution, a processor reknowned for its OCing potential (though you will have to research and acquire the ideal stepping), a solid GFX card and 1 GB high quality ram. Also from what I have heard, a solid PSU.

    I'm ordering one tonight for my friend, using komplett's PC builder (which at my figuring, seems to cost an extra £20 odd for them to build / install / test it all, seems like a bargain).
    This is a quick example spec:

    NEC DVD±RW burner, ND-3550A, 16x,
    AKASA Powersupply ATX/EPS 12V 400W
    Corsair Value S. PC3200 DDR-DIMM 1024MB

    Antec Performance One P180 Miditower,
    Sony Floppy Drive, 3,5" 1,44MB Black
    Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9,nForce4-4x,Socket-939
    AMD Athlon 64 3700+ 2.2GHz Socket 939,
    Samsung SpinPoint P120S 250GB SATA2
    Microsoft Windows XP Home SP2

    Total: £815 inc VAT. Note that it DOES include Windows!
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.
