    Should be ok if u need all that stuff at once, but seriously 22,5 inch lg???

    U should check prices of all that stuff.

    Whats funny is that everything is for gaming hehe the case for example is just a cheap ass one ;) and there is no gaming ram from corsair as far as i know. The vengeance series might fall into that category but they just have bigger heatspreaders to keep them cool... The graphics card is just the best low end gaming card amd has to offer and there are as always good and bad cards.

    Its best to tell him u need to know exactly what parts he will use.

    -----------------------------------
    for a total of 657,10 (without blueray burner) - 720,05 (with blueray burner)

    OPTIONAL:
    SSD: Samsung 840 Series 250GB 128,28 pounds
    Samsung 840 Series 120GB 75,74 pounds


    keyboard and mouse combo is up to you, and the sound system as well, i know it's tight budget now but i opted for the best parts i could find... :) there's still room for tweaking it a bit i guess...

    with this stuff you'll get a futureproof setup which smashes the amd fx-6100 to pieces. if you upgrade to a ssd in the near future (prices will drop) it will even be faster...

    and watch out for clearance sales, the i5-3570k could be 10-20 pounds cheaper in a local computer store near you!
    since it's "the old" generation. :)

    why would you need a blueray drive?!

    you could save ~70 pounds if you go with the amd fx-6100 and an am3+ motherboard.

    to answer your question - how much is it worth: i wouldn't pay 700 for it - 450-500 tops. getting a 21,5 inch monitor is not worth the money. and calling everything "gaming" is bullying. it's like the stuff you get in the mail where everything is gaming. it's better to pick the stuff you need instead of buying pre-made Fecal Leaking that's probably eol (end of life products that need to go from the store) 24" is the way to go, that's the standard right now. and it's slowly moving towards 27" already. there are 29" monitors too but they cost around 400 pounds.

    i am asking myself right now: is it blu or blue ray LOL hahahahahaha :)

    i don't see the point in optical drives anymore. every tv can do usb, every computer etc. so why bother with discs... ;D

    you can use your blue blu oh wtf rays with your next gen console :D
