It think the SLI 8600GT is a little odd. You would be better off with just one 8800GTS or even the 8800GT that just came out. Also It has 4GB of RAM when Vista 32bit can only recognize ~3.25GB so 0.75GB of RAM would be waisted. The 700:1 contrast ratio on the monitor is a tad low but still pretty nice. And the PSU is a little small.

Do you have any experience, at all, at putting together a PC at home for a cheaper price because I could help you choose the parts. Or if you have no clue how to I could point out a couple of things and you could buy it assembled online.

OK #1 What are you doing with it exactly? Games you play? DirectX 10? Budget?

I am in America so I do not know of many PC stores in land of the £, but answer those questions and I will look around on that site for you and see what I can dig up.

PS: Anyone else know of any good PC manufacturers in Europe?

Hmm, I am not liking that site and am not liking their choices. You can only choose from a little weak 550W PSU or an overkill 1,000W PSU. I would shoot for something of like 650W or higher if you are going to go SLI. And the whole 4GB 667MHz Memory is kind of odd. I also think you can get something for cheaper.

Recommend:
* 2GB-3.25GB RAM
* A Quad core CPU If you have the money and want the PC to last a while
* 8800GT video card
*~650W PSU or higher

Do you know of another site?
