Looks good, but concerned about two things:

1. Will the case be suitable for you? click here to read a review

2. The quality of the monitor - what make & model number?

In addition, you may get better for £1000. Have you shopped around? G

  vanfish 11:25 08 Jul 2008

all it no its on cyberpower systems web site
its the infinity gt which i have changed abit
they emailed me to pay extra 10 pound for dvi for better quality if thats any help

From the PCA review of this PC it looks like a Chimei monitor click here. I would go for the DVI monitor for £10 more. Ask them if it comes with a DVI cable - if it doesn't ask them to throw one in for free (you're going to put in a £1000 order for goodness sake!).

One thing to be aware of if you're thinking of overclocking the CPU in the future is whether the case will be able to accomodate a large(ish) heatsink/cooler - thinking height of cooler may be a problem. Just make sure, although this may not be a problem at all as they provide some fairly hefty(?) third-party coolers in the config. G

Looks expensive! Pity you don't buy the components and build it yourself.

Hope ou realise VAT is added to those prices.

The PC will be great for gaming though.
I doubt spending any more money will get you noticeable results.

  vanfish 20:42 08 Jul 2008

the price is 1106 pounds after vat is added
i have move old system to new tower before and minor changes but never build full system not that good m8

  vanfish 20:44 08 Jul 2008

told the tower is ready for a second card to be added

Vanfish, you'd be surprised how easy the PC build process is.
No more jumper settings to worry about - it's really just as simple as reading the mobo manual and plugging everything in.
I recently built my own PC (my first) and was surprised how easy it was, albeit that I took hours to do it just to be sure.
If you've moved an old system to a new tower, you have all the knowledge you need to build a new one.

Not quite matching your specs and no monitor but it only cost me £470.

  vanfish 09:25 09 Jul 2008

ty m8 but i think let the experts do it then i do the upgrades myself i know i ll do something wrong the price was 1010pounds after vat what was your specs m8 of p.c
