    Cheers for the link buddy. If my money can stretch I've heard that the gfx680 graphics card is a goo one. What's your take on it. And I'll look into the i5.

    can't get the link to work but I wouldn't buy from a play marketplace seller anyway, they can't compete on price with places like Scan, CCL, etc. and they uses cheapo PSU, case, ram etc to bring the price down. You would end up having to buy a new PSU to use a decent graphics card with that PC. If that first build is from pcspecialist.co.uk then they could do a better deal than that. Also getting a non overclocked i5 would bring prices down a lot for very little change in performance

    http://www.cclonline.com/, they've been around quite a long time but they're a big player these days.
