Can you tell me if this is a good one to buy?

Also, can you recommend a good nVidia GeForce 8 Series + Above. Thats under £80 that is good for gaming

Thanks In Advance

there is nothing any good for £80. you need £120 for a card and a motherboard that can take a core2 duo. core 2 duo cpu's overclock a lot better so you can get a cheap one like a e7200 and take it to over 3g.

that's an AMD board and it runs the latest AMD CPU's.
You can get a 320 Mb 8800GTS click here for £88 incl VAT

I am now looking to use this, would i need a graphics card, or would the motherboard be sufficient for new games (A High End/Gaming Computer)

you are always going to need a graphics card to play games. triple sli means the board can have 3 graphics cards installed.
there are some boards that have onboard graphics but these are no good for games.

Okay thanks.
Can anyone reccomend any good, but non expencive graphic cards, that nVidia 7+

nosharpes link to a 8800GTS is the best you will get for that sort of money. Just bear in mind that your power supply will most likely need upgrading as well to something like a 800watt one.
