hey dude. 600 pounds..roughly 1000 cad, should make a decent mid end machine.

what are you going to use it for? use percentages, like 90% gaming, 10% watching instructional material on the net,etc.

cool. and at what resolution will you be playing, will you want to max out the eye candy?

no idea on uk resellers.

i would go for something like a giga ud 3/4 p and i3 530/540 and perhaps a radeon hd 6850/6870. psu wise corsair,seasonic,antec 500-700 watts for dual cards

I like these guys better in the UK. And I must say the site you linked does not have much in way of choices...

Overclockers UK

Pre-built: "Titan Xenomorph" Intel Core i3 540 3.06GHz @ 4.20GHz Nvidia Edition DDR3 System []
And you can upgrade for 12 pounds to a GTX460, which is recommended.

ok so you want to run your games on dual 1920x1080/1200 monitors. it will take quite some gpu power, perhaps a 6850/70 setup might do it.

with the setup charlie linked you can crossfire. the 4x will take some fps out, but not an insane ammount







although its always better to build it yourself, saves you some cash usually.
