Im looking to buy a new PC for mainly playing games on. My budget, at the absolute most is £800, including a monitor. I have seen one on Cougar Extreme which looks quite good. Here it is...

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66 GHz 4Mb Cache
2GB Kingston DDR 667
500GB SATA Hard Drive
Colors 550Watt Silent
320Mb Nvidia 8800GTS graphics card DX10
QC - ASUS P5N-ESLI 1333fsb-DDR800x4 SLI motherboard (Dual graphics)
18X DVD+/-RW (Samsung)
Floppy Drive - SILVER
19Inch Hanns.g. Multimedia TFT DVI
Microsoft remote keyboard & mouse wireless 3000
Creative Sound Blaster Live 7.1 Sound Card
Intergrated Monitor Speakers
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premiem (OEM)
13 Month Warranty
Free Carriage

£807.80 inc VAT

Would this system be capable of playing the latest games fluently?

Does anyone have any other options from different websites that suit my budget?

I recently baught a PC with a higher spec. than yours PC from Cougar, who I highly reccomend.

It should run most games but not nessesarily with maxed sliders. Mine still struggles with MSX Flightsim, but nothing is going to run this flat out.
