1. seems wayyyy overpriced
2. not worth it
3. bleh
4. seems reasonable but what make??
5. seems ok but they are quite cheap these days
6. *shrug*
7. pricey
I think the case may be expensive??

how much ram? in GB

monitor seems quite expensive.

so does the mobo set... (i think)
use ebuyer, scan and overclockers to check prices for similar spec
Every thing seems a bit too expensive.. or not worthy of purchase.. for ex 160Gb drive is just not worth it anymore, for £32 you can get a 320GB and thats what you should have, else you will be like me, I have a 160Gb, 200Gb, 250Gb, 320GB and 500GB drives spinning.. a lot of power, space and connectors are being wasted!!
Same with the GFx, 7600Gs, not really worth it... !!

If you dont want to make your own PC from scratch the Tesco Deal posted today is way better than this. Also [url][/url] or soemthing liek that will test the mobo, CPU and RAM you purchase from them and send them to you constructed for £10 more!!
The case is availible here for £32.50

The motherboard/CPU bundle looks expensive but as I can't find P32N on asus' website it's hard to say.

Assuming it's 2 x 2GB the memory is probably a decent price but if you don't need overclocking memory you can get cheaper that'll be just as good.

The power supply depends on the make.

Hard drive isn't bad value for money.

The graphics card is rubbish, you can get a 7900GS new for ~£40 or a newer 3650 for the same price.

The monitor seems like about the same price it is as new.
They are terrible prices, you could get a much better brand new cpu/motherboard/cooler combo for lots less that £300. A 4GB kit of PC8000 heatpipe cooled ram costs less than £80 new - what is the point on have 'watercooled' ram without a water cooling setup. The graphics card as mention is rubbish, 160GB is pretty old and small for a hdd (better to spend under £40 on a brand new 320GB+ model with 5 year warranty).
The case is less that £60 new at scan, and frankly, is hideous :giggle:

That list comes to £640 and doesn't even include an optical drive. Compare to this from ebuyer:

ASUS P5KC AiLifestyle Series iP35 Socket 775 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard 132275 £68.14
Corsair 4GB Kit (2x2GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 XMS2 Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL5(5-5-5-18) Heat Spreader Lifetime Warranty 130429 £57.51
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 Stepping (2.4GHz 1066MHz) Socket 775 L2 8MB Cache (2x4MB (4MB per core pair) Retail Boxed Processor 131950 £127.95
Seagate ST3320620AS 320GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200RPM 16MB Cache - OEM 115418 £38.11
LG GSA-H55NBAL 20x DVD±RW/DL/RAM IDE Black Bare Drive - OEM 132560 £14.99
Antec NSK 4480 Silver/Black Mini-Tower ATX Case - With 380W EarthWatts PSU 130947 £50.04
PowerColor HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E Graphics Card 146428 £117.49
LG W2242S 22" TFT Monitor 1680x1050 8000:1 300cd/m2 5ms VGA Silver/Black 3 Years Warranty 143051 £133.99

Under £610 delivered, all brand new, with an much, much fast GPU, quad-core CPU, much larger, higher-resolution monitor, twice the hard drive spice, DVD rewriter and a branded power supply...

What I would have said if I wasn't so lazy.

I have a spare antec P180B black if you want a nice case..
very nice case imranmaz :)

I have the P182 special edition version
1. CPU and mobo easily constructed, face value of no more than £200 to buy new.

2. Unless that's 8GB of the stuff, that's lousy.

3. For just a case? Um, no.

4. Yeah, probably reasonable. Ignore the fud - what isn't quantifyable is so easily bullshi**ed.

5. God no. Second hand 160GB drive for £20? Spend double, and buy a 500GB drive that performs at double the speed, and that won't lose all your data after six months.

6. Useless for games. Useless for anything else.

7. 19"? £20 more and buy yourself a split-new 22". And ignore the response time lark. Reponse times are irrelevant these days. They're either based on 6bit panels, or grey to grey, both of which are cheat systems and neither do you any good. Anything new will be good.
What has six bit colour got to do with response time?
Thanks for all your input I think I will be steering clear of this then as it's rather inflated
