I set myself a target of about 500 pounds to build a new pc. It doesnt need to be able to play the latest games (ie Crysis) but would like it to run the last gen of games (ie Doom 3, Quake 4, Far Cry etc) almost flawlessly. Here is what i have looked at getting so far. If anyone can suggest alternatives im open to ideas!!
Gigabyte motherboard GA-P31-DS3L
Intel CPU Pentium DualCore E2160
Gigabyte GF 8800GT SLI 256MB DDR3, PCI-E, DVI, HDTV Out, Retail
Hanns-G 19" TFT LCD monitor HQ191DP 5ms
Western Digital 250GB Caviar SE16 SATA II 300 7200rpm 16MB cache Hard Disk
Pioneer DVD DVR-115DBK Black 20X +/-R/RW DL IDE OEM
OCZ 2GB Kit (2x1024) Platinum Series DDR2 PC6400 800MHz Dual Channel Memory
Atrix 9001B34 Silver / Black Gaming case 520W mesh side window 12cm neon fan
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
This totals including deliery about £485 pounds altogether. I realise the E2160 isnt the best CPU but my intention was to overclock it out of the box to the 3GHZ mark (maybe above) to compensate.
Anyways, will this do the job, and if not can anyone suggest a better option for the same price?
