HI. I WANT TO BUILD A PC FOR PLAYING GAMES AND I WANT IT FAIRLY HIGH SPEC. I HAVE ABOUT £1200 TO SPEND BUT DON'T KNOW TO MUCH ABOUT WHICH COMPONENTS TO BUY. I WOULD LIKE TO RUN 2 8800 GRAPHICS CARDS WITH AN INTEL 6600 QUAD CHIP. WHICH MOTHER BOARD CAN YOU SUGGEST FOR THE JOB AND HOW MUCH POWER WILL I NEED TO RUN IT ALL. I THINK I NEED A 680 SLI MOTHERBOARD BUT WHICH ONE SHOULD I GO FOR. WHICH TYPE OF RAM SHOULD I BUY, DDR2 OR DDR3 AND IS IT WORTH BUYING ANY MORE THAN 4 GB OF IT. WHICH 8800 GRAPHICS CARD SHOULD I GO FOR. IS IT WORTH PAYING MORE FOR A GTS OR THE GTX. WHICH HARD DRIVES ARE BETTER. IDE OR SATA AND WHATS THE DIFFERENCE.

A LOT OF QUESTIONS I KNOW BUT THANKS FOR ANY HELP

...biuld it yourself? I'm sure someone here will help, but I feel that if you have soooo many questions, you may be better off with a ready built system.
