hey recently i decided i want to build a gaming pc, i will be looking to play games on full settings (particularly the old republic)I have done alot of research, prior to this i had no knowledge of the systems at all, however the practical side of things will be be no problem.

Firstly can some body give their input on the following build;

Phenom x6 3ghz
asus radeon 6870
8gb ram
m4a89gtd usb 3

after reading about these, it seems a very decent build for relatively cheap (around 400£) I have built this around some essentials

Extra USB Socket

however i recently opened a new 43inch 3d television 720p, and found myself using the television as my current computer screen.

This this left me with another desire, 3D PC gaming.

I feel i can spare another £200 to get what (maybe radeon 6950?) i want but require assistance so could somebody spare the time to improvement my build around or even recommend me a new one. MUCH appreciated!

A good guide for product views is Neweggs feedback tab (about time we had Newegg in the UK) - your MB http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131631
Use the CPU and memory support tabs to ensure you choose compatible components http://www.asus.com/...A89GTD_PROUSB3/

For a screen that size you need at least 2GB of VRam http://www.dabs.com/...eon 6950&src=16
