presumably this is just a bunch of parts - not a full system?

If it was a built system I would have considered it. Good deal for experienced PC builders though.

I had a look at this yday, it's an ok deal you get 6 peices no graphics card and save around £40 over buying the parts individually from scan.

Can this CPU work with the listed parts? Or anything else is needed to get it work? I have nt built any PC before, not sure I can handle it if I purchase this deal?

Bought a similar package from Scan a few months ago.As softpurple said, you would need a graphics card, plus an operating system ie. XP/Vista/Windows 7.

Cheers, but how much would an Operating system cost? And also a graphic card (say 1 GB ones)

This cpu is made redundant by 2500k/2600k

I didnt think you would need a graphics card unless your wanting it for games? If your just wanting to do something along the lines of photoshop, or video editing you just use the motherboard internal graphics card? Unless you have serious 3D editing to do then a graphics card would help share the processing...

The i7950 is still awesome despite the new i72600 coming out. Its not a huge amount of extra performance, but if its roughly the same price the i7 2600 would be a better choice (but then you need to wait for the new motherboards in april that dont have a sata bug problem)

An operating system costs roughly £75 - £100 for windows 7 depending what version you go for. And if you get an OEM version its cheaper. The difference between OEM and retail is it doesnt have a box or instruction guide (but a look on google will tell you what to do anyways) Or get linux cause its free!

The Gigabyte board does not have on-board graphics. Photoshop CS4/5 or Premiere are exclusively accelerated with certain Nvidia cards using cuda cores (can be hacked to use other Nvidia cards) so avoid ATI for image/video editing. For games, just take your pick.

Ah rite, sorry i didnt actually check the spec on the motherboard. The new sandy brdige has the internal graphics right? That would be used with photoshop right cause adobe says it supports intel HD graphics aswell as nvidia. That would save price of a graphics card i guess! Will have to wait til sandy bridge chips start falling in price, and the z68 motherboard is out so i can overclock and have the on chip graphics with no bugs!

I'm guessing the people looking to build their first pc and hoping not to fork out for a quadro class card! Why not just pick up something like a ati 4550 for around £25? Wont play many new games but it'll still keep your new pc ticking over nicely and still better than almost all onboard cards.
