I am considering building a PC for gaming for me which will run the latest games such as GOW, COD4 etc but also runs fine for office work. I am looking to spend at most $1000 which is not a lot. I am living in the UK but have looked on newegg and also ebuyer and come up with this. It is not a definate but just around the specs i think would be capable to run smoothly. I don't know if these would run together and also not sure if they are best for performance/price wise. If i have forgot anything please let me know. I am pretty new to computer specs so be nice Please feel free to create your own PC for me to have a look at. Any advice would be greatly appriciated. I would only need a small HD due to having an external 250gb which holds all my music/files/pics etc so this would only be needed to run games etc. I also will be running Vista 64 [If applicable].
