    Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R Socket 775 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
    Logitech X-230 2.1 Speaker System - 32W RMS
    Seagate ST3250410AS 250GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache - OEM
    Samsung SH-S203B 20X DVD±RW/RAM / DL Serial ATA Black Bare Drive - OEM

    i just replaced my computer, used a shuttle xpc cube. it means you are limited on pci slots, but everything else is there, pci-e slot, space for up to 3 hard drives, build quality is great, lots of ports on the front, worth a look if its ur kind of thing.

    got a nice big widescreen samsung display too, didn't cost that much , probably less than the 15" it replaced was when i bought it!

    would recommend cclonline for ordering parts. you may find cheaper alternatives like ebuyer or dabs but the service from ccl is flawless.

    what monitor are you using? I would probably bump the the HDD, abit, it's not alot for a 500gb drive.. I would probably look at another 2gb later down the line, with the likes of crysis. What PSU are you getting?

    Overclockers are doing a good price on their own branded 8800 GTX atm.

    but it all depends on your budget.

    here is what i have just purchased.

    Yeah i will get another drive as I want it running RAID 0, and yup I will chuck some more memory in later.

    I'll be sticking with XP Pro unless there is some massive reason to go to VISTA - multi threading?
