I am after purchasing a new computer so that I can turn up the graphics a bit. Does this look o/k for the money?

Nice, be sure that you can add more ram later on.

Thanks for your comments. The board is capable of 16gb max I believe.

As long as they leave 2 more empty sockets for you and have a good power suppy to handle the new DX 10 cards.

yeah! I decided to go for the dx9 cards for the time being. They will have to last me a while now until dx10s drop to a reasonable price. I just hope they don't start releasing games just for dx10 cards yet. Otherwise I will have wasted a lot of money.

I have ordered the computer but don't expect it before the new year now.
I will let you know how it runs simulator x and if it is worth the money.
I couldn't decide whether the two cards supplied would be better than one top end card?
I am hoping they are as I can't see why they would supply two cards if one would work better.

I am not sure about the power supply it is either 430w or 530w. I have read of some users using 900w for two cards. I will have to trust the suppliers that the power supply is o/k for the job. I can soon stick a larger supply in. I usually build them myself and add bits. But that much has changed that I thought I might as well buy one ready built.
It has a twelve month warranty so if the power supply proves inadequate they will have to re-place it with something better.
I have 450w in my current rig but I am hoping the newer motherboards and processors take less power. I wasn't given the option of having a different power supply to the one stated.
I must admit I would have looked for something much better had I been building it.

What does that convert to in U.S. dollars? Just curious if that's a good price. Does it come with a new monitor, keyboard, speakers etc.?

No monitor. Not sure about keyboard etc. But I have them anyway.

Items are always much cheaper in the US. Everything is bumped in price for the UK. Everyone knows that we have a weak government that is taken advantage of.
