Found 6th Jun 2007
I thought I'd better get onto ebuyer before the google checkout finished and got a little crazy on the new systems items. I got:

eBuyer - Microsoft Windows XP Home SP2B x32bit... £45.46
eBuyer - Extra Value Shinobi Mid Tower Case -... £43.73
eBuyer - ASRock ConRoe945G-DVI i945G SKT LGA77...£40.52
eBuyer - Ebuyer Extra Value 17" 1280x1024 450:... £88.59
eBuyer - Sapphire RADEON X1950PRO 512MB GDDR3 ...£99.08
eBuyer - Seagate ST3500630AS 500GB Hard Drive ... £69.68
eBuyer - LG GBW-H10N 4x Blu Ray Super Multi Re... £328.72
eBuyer - Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 1.86ghz Socket... £62.73
eBuyer - Corsair 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 PC2-5300... £39.99

£818.50

Also, I've never built a system from scratch. Will I have a lot of trouble? Do the parts come with all the relevant wires and screws etc? Thanks.

Why do you want to pay that kind of money for a LG GBW-H10N 4x Blu Ray Super Multi Rewriter ? and you could just get a 20x DVD±RW-RAM Drive for around £20.

Save your money on the Blu Ray drive for just now till the prices drop and spend the money saved by buying better parts, like on a better video card and motherboard.

If you need help with what's best to buy just ask as i've built alots & lots of pc's over years for friends/family & my buyers.

Hope this helps

Personally I'd save on the Blu-ray and get a DVD±RW, it's not like you'll be enjoying 1080p hi-def with the rest of that setup anyway.

With the money you'd save I'd by a branded case (]http//ww…727 for example), energy efficient PSU (e.g. ]http//ww…260) and if you're feeling flush a better monitor wouldn't go amiss either (e.g. ]http//ww…861).

The biggest thing to remember with building a PC is to watch out for static as it can damage your components, see: http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=71478&highlight=static for info.
