    I have attached a list of items for a new PC I am about to build, Does anyone have any criticisms or suggestions, comments etc. Any wrong choices and whatnot.

    Grand Total is £1050

    Is this a pretty future proof system for a few years?

    Comments in general would be nice.

    I'll also have a PC for sale to anyone that wants it. 4GB of Ram, 400GB of HDDs, E8400, doesn't come with GPU but comes with everything else.

    and sorry I couldn't put it in text, but scan.co.uk doesn't let you save as quote.

    You can never future proof yourself :p But yeah, it looks nice.

    What graphics card you putting in it? (as that is the focus on a lot of my new builds - for game playing, videos etc)

    Qs

    I have GTX260 OC at the moment which I will be putting in, at some point I'll probably get a second.

    At some point in the future I imagine I will haha. When they start releasing HD games etc, when the G60 drops below 140 I think it will be hard not to justify purchasing one. I'm not a big fan of spending 350 quid on a single component, I'm more of a high end but not massive price kind of person. justify spending 700 quid on a processor for your desktop lol. it's stupid.
