My System Specs

Default

Don't buy pre-built.. simples... you can build a computer thats better for less (usually)

If you've never messed about with components there are many many video's a guides (as well as instruction manuals that come with parts)

For gaming I'd suggest the i5.. if you fancy trying overclocking then get the k series chip (i5 2500k) if not then don't.

The graphics card.. if your going to be on 1920 x 1080 (full HD and the most popular resolution of monitors these days at 21" or higher) then I would suggest a 560 Ti at least to max out the graphics for a while.

At the end of the day your not going to know what you need until you SEE the differences.
Try asking a shop / friends to show you what they have and what it looks like
(if you not used to looking at different game settings etc you may not see much difference unless they are side by side)
