Motherboard / Processor / Graphics Card / PSU

Basically I am looking to upgrade my PC as it's getting old.

Only think I have a preference for are the following:
Core 2 Duo processor (is quad worth it at the moment?)
GeForce 8800 GT/GTS/GTX graphics card (512MB if possible)
And of course a decent mobo and PSU that can power the CPU and graphics card.
Budget - less than £500

Been a while since I upgraded, which sites offer the best bundles?
Any recommendations?

do you interest AMD cpu? i have got a x2 5000+ black edition system. with 8800gts, 2gb memory, 250gb hard drive, all in perfect condition.
I'd imagine it'd be very difficult to get that spec for under your 500 quid budget. A decent quad-core cpu will cost about £150 (i'm thinking the 6600 C2D) on its own; and I certainly recommend buying a decent motherboard and PSU to support your setup (£50+respectively for each. If you can salvage a few components from your old pc that will help the cause (maybe the monitor, hdd, cd/dvdrom etc.)

I had the same intention as you when I started building my pc april last year. I ended up exceeding my budget by about £300 after purchasing the TFT and 8800GTS 320mb (this is for sale soon if you're interested).
if your still after a comp i have one i was thinking of selling

8800 GTX
good efficent power supply
C2D at 3GHZ
gigabyte mobo (forget the name but will try update when i get home and have a look Ds3 something..)
4 Gigs of V.Good ram

250GB HD


will do for £350 + delivery (or you can collect for free)

I also have a Dell 3007 HC Screen if your interested. £500

let me know if your interested and ill try take some photos ect
