Thought i would throw this open and get some ideas from you. I have a budget of about £1750.00 ($3459.00) and want to know what you would recommend, as per CPU, Motherboard, Graphics Etc Etc. I already have a monitor (19" wide screen). Will also require additional cooling facilities due to its probable location. I will be installing windows Vista (Home Ultimate) AND Xp64 edition on it. I have 2 hard drives already (250gb and 160gb) Ram would have to be in the order of 3gb+.

if you're looking at a budget like that, id say forget the whole building one thing, and go to Alienware.

Its like Dell, but expensive, and the most amazing customer service you can think of.

Buy from there, and have a problem, someone comes to your house in 2 days to look at it for free!

http://www.alienware.co.uk

They're the most Top-Spec customizing place ive ever seen. Thought 1TB of HDD space was a lot?

This place allows you to get 4TB without going into a special order.

That's a horrible picture o.O I can't even tell if the box is square or not, or is it transparent on one corner, or is it going through the monitor? D: But otherwise, congrats on your purchase ;)

Thats a very good observation LM, Your right though sometimes i do some very rash things with money! But i do still moan alot about having to pay £0.90 for a LITRE of petrol (5 litres = 1 Gallon) so thats £4.50 or $8.90 a Gallon! :evil:
