Please help me spec up a gaming PC

  jcotton 18:09 18 Aug 2005


I am looking to build my self a new gaming computer system. I preferably would like 1GB memory(2 X crucial 512mb DDR2 dual channel I take it the speed would depend on the motherboard?) I would like the best gaming graphics card at the moment for around £250, and an AMD 64 CPU

Could anyone suggest a system that would be up for this? I have a max of £850 to spend. Cheers

a 6800gt will fit the bill for the graphics card.
