will this be future proof and good for all the latest pc games.....well for a while anyway

You would need a better Graphics Card to run the latest games with any sort of higher resolutions. Games like COD:MW2 will run ok on low-medium. You could get a much better system with a higher spec if you built it yourself (normally the case) however if your looking one pre-built you should look towards Novatech, CyberPower, etc.

looks good and i am lookingfor something similar but didntthis have 6 gig the other day? sorry to be picky ! sorry!

just asking this looks excellent, but i'm no expert !

There is no such thing as a future-proof PC. Having said that, the Core I7 is the top-end single-socket chip from Intel and is likely to last a few years.

The GT220 card isn't bad and can always be upgraded later.
The 4GB RAM is a bit strange - the Core I7 is Nehalem Core and it runs best on multiples of 3 DIMMs. 3x2GB would be better than 4x1GB.
(Some info here for the technically minded: blogs.sun.com/mel…ion - it is based on Xeon 5500 series but that uses the same cores as the I7 series).

Not bad? It's virtually bottom of the range and terrible value for money compared with a mid-range card.

It's an excellent CPU, but if you want it for gaming you'd either need to replace the graphics card which would cost you an extra £70+ or buy a system with a slightly slower CPU and a decent graphics card.

also, at least £50 to replace the power supply to power said gfx card.

The supplied PSU runs an 8800GT no problem - Batman Arkham Asylum in 1900 x 1200 is no issue.

Saying that, I am looking at the possibiltiy of putting in a Radeon 5870 with new PSU in the future.

Geeza

This is socket 1156 core I7 lynnfield which runs dual channel ddr3 which is why 4 x1gb (should have went 2x2Gb)
