Hello,

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.

Thanks

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.
