any comments or help on new system build

Hi guys

I am just about to buy a new gaming system to replace my 3 year old laptop. I have done quitea bit of forum lurking and article reading to make sure that I make a good choice but before I buy it, I would really like to run it past some tech experts to see what you think of it and if you have any suggestions.

I want a good gaming system that can play games from the last few years and from the next 2 or 3. Good graphics is a definite bonus but I am not prepared to pay loads and loads for only a slight increase in performance.

Because of this, I am planning to purchase a SVGA 8800 320mb graphics card so that I can use their step up program when the G9 series comes out. That way, if prices for the 8800 series falls drastically or the G9 series are fabulous compared to the 8800 series, I can upgrade easily and painlessly.

I am going to purchase the actual system from a href="click here" target="_blank">click here /a> for approx £550:

Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 3.0 GHz 4Mb
Motherboard - QC - ASUS P5N-ESLI 1333fsb-DDR800x4
Hard Drive - 500GB SATA Hard Drive
Memory - 2GB Kingston DDR 667
PSU - Atrix 650Watt Transparent Blue LED 12v
Operating System - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium

Any help would be brilliant

Thanks a lot!

Unfortunatly your links didn't work. From what you have typed it sounds ok. I would ask about the graphics card?
