    No gaming, this is for a home server (web, sql etc and maybe hosting games for LAN use)

    Thanks

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 is a little dear and the hard drive is horribly overpriced you can get a cheaper 500gb one or even a cheap 160gb for £20-30
    IggSter says thanks.

    I should point out that the reason im buying 2 x 160 is to mirror the drives to provide redundancy in case of failure. This PC will run 24/7 and the drives will only have the OS and apps on. All data will be on 5 x 1TB in ext caddy which I already have connected to my current server PC.

    Thanks tho!
