    Hi all,

    I have been looking to buy a decent gaming PC for the last couple of weeks and have been struggling to decide what to do/get buy pre-built or build myself. A mate has just offered me the following for £950, 1/2 months old, and has been used about 10hrs per day. Is it worth it or not.

    Thermaltake VE1000SWA Mozart TX Aluminium Entertainment Tower Case - Silver

    Asus Blitz Extreme Intel P35 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR3 Motherboard

    Intel Core 2 Quad-Core Q6600 G0 SLACR, 95W, S775, 2.40 GHz, 1066MHz

    512MB Asus HD2900XT PCI-E(x16) 512Bit 1650MHz GDDR3, GPU 740MHz CrossFire

    Corsair 2GB DDR3 XMS3-1066C7 TwinX (2x1GB)

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB ST3500630AS SATA-II 16MB Cache

    Tuniq Tower 120 CPU Cooler

    Thermaltake Toughpower Series Cable Management 1200w

    Samsung DVDRW Dual Layer

    Vista Ultimate

    Please let me know if this is a good deal or not for £950, or should I get something else. Im going to his house tonight to have a look at it.

    I was also thinking of going to CCL maybe as have seen good reports. I would much appriciate all your help on deciding.

    Thanks Tom :lease:

    Have a look at the Chillblast Sniper which is great value for money at £699. They have overclocked a E2160 C2D to 2.8Ghz and it includes a 8800GTS.

    The machine in your first post is better, with a quad core chip and (arguably) a better graphics card, but depending on what you use it for, the Sniper would also be a fine choice with some top components including a Corsair PSU, Asus P35 mobo and Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 HSF.

    Could you not pretty much build that for that, maybe better if you got a couple bits secondhand?

    looks excellent for the price - however are you sure it's DDR3 ram!

    DDR3 ram is barely out and if it is it bloody expensive,

    Otherwise looks very good value for £950.

    The psu alone is about £150!
