Is there anything i am missing or think i can get better?

My budget is £500, or something close to it.

I've never heard of the brand of the PSU, you might want to get one that's well known

You should get at least 2GB of ram

Other than that it's pretty good

Thats an Intel CPU and an AMD motherboard they are not compatible and never will be. Also do not buy no name brand such as the GPU and PSU. For the PSU go with http://www.ebuyer.com/product/115881 and for the GPU go with http://www.cclonline...?...d=0&tid=n/a Mobo a similar one would be http://www.ebuyer.com/product/136363 if you are not planning SLI if you are then you wanna consider spending a little more and getting http://www.ebuyer.com/product/125082.

Yes it will work but since you want to SLI then I would suggest going with the second option although if you are planning on overclocking maybe a higher quality like THISwould help but if not then forget it. Also what memory are you getting or already have?

I am using some old DDR 1 ram. 1GB.... But i do have some of this some place in my house...

Since i cant find any place on the net which sells the ram i am going to use, i will have to say it looks like this, but its only 1gb and more gold. http://www.cclonline...id=ocz2vu8004gk

I will be getting better ram when i have the money. 1GB ram is ok for me, i have been playing games like cod4 with ddr1 for aaaaages :)

Ahh as I suspected. That memory will not be compatible with any of those boards since its DDR and they support DDR2 however ram is really cheap these days, their even giving it out for free, :) (thats an inside joke). But seriously they're really cheap around 30 dollars even, not sure how much that is in Euros.

Be very cautious as to what 650i/680i motherbaord you purchase, many have serious issues with quad core CPU's.
The only well known 680i board that works well with current Intel quad cores CPU's, is the A1 revision from Evga. Please keep in mind none of Intel new quad core CPU's (Yorkfield) will work on the 680i chipset.
