Hmmm thanks for that, since the performance on world in conflict between the current 8800gt and the gts I miht get the 8800gt, I'll have a look at some uk prices.
Update here is my new harware list, (thanks to everyone who has helped)
Antec 900 case
Intel 3.0ghz 8400 cpu
mobo still ??? someone mentioned the intel p35 chipset but I'm still confused
Ram DDDR2 SDRAM something like that
same with HDD, possibly a seagate and a wd raptor(x)( possibly)
sound card maybe an xfi ? haven't looked into it yet
Nvidia 8800gt (g92)
maybe a raid card
a wireless card of some description
dvd drives etc (combo maybe)
I think thats everything
ANOTHER UPDATE: I found this http://www.rage3d.co....php?t=33909428
it compares intel's 2 3.0ghz dual core processors, am I right in thinking that the one I'm getting E8400 is better?
