=CE=Grím: lol hai
=CE=Grím: i'm thinking about getting a new comp soon
=CE=Grím: i was just wondereing if you could point me too any good comps, or some good parts for comps
=CE=Grím: my budget is £1000 i think that's something aroundd $1250
=CE=Grím: not sure though

So he needs help on a parts list on for his computer, and he lives in the UK so i really cant help him with deals and stuff. Now its a Top from Bottom build and he has the experience to put it together. Now the only thing he hasn't done is taken the CPU of the motherboard, or put one in but i just advised him that it is notched and keyed so he will be fine. So can any of you guys help him with deals in the UK for his system.

First things first - what he going to do with it? No point in getting the guy an i7 supercomputer if all he does is play WoW and go on the internet.

Second - does he want to keep it the way it is for a long time, or does he want to upgrade it again later for a certain game down the line?

Thirdly - can he build, and feel confident in building the computer?
