|ok, so taking on board your advice, how does this sound|
AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition 3.2GHz (with unlocked core's to Phenom II X4 B55 Black Edition 3.2GHz)
Asus M4A785TD-V EVO 785G
EXTRA VALUE 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz Memory Kit 1.5V CL9
PALIT GTS250 Green 512MB GDDR3
Arctic Power 700W PSU With PCI-E, 4x SATA, 20+4, ATX12V, 8pin +12V Connectors
That Little lot comes to about £285 which is within budget nicely
would i be better with that 400watt psu?
and also, if i was unlucky and got a 555 that wont unlock, can i return it? (long distance selling regulations)
also if i was OCing the X4 (to say 3.5ghz) what cooling (on my budget) could i get?
how many fps do you predict i could get in crysis and fsx on fairly high settings?
May i just say thank you all so much, your input has been amazing :)
