    I am about to start building a new PC with a budget of 700. I live in the UK and I do not need a monitor as I have one, an old EIZO flexiscan 9500 19inch model and hope that this will be suitable or I may need to revise my budget and save a bit more.

    What I would like to know is-
    with said budget what would you put into your machine.

    I require a system that can handle the latest 3D games like MOH and the forthcoming Jedi games and not need to be upgraded anymore for a while.
    The system need's to be able to run WinXP Pro as well which I already own.

    So I need a system that is the best money can buy with my meagre amount of money, shouldn't be to difficult I hope.

    I'd get
    Ti4200 128 Meg 8x (asus make a good one)
    512 Meg DDR
    Asus a7n8x delux
    80 G seagate 7200
    AMD 2600+ ( may be able to get better depends on budget)
    Floppy drive (if required)
    Case with 400 W P/s
    LG 52X24X52x burner
    keyboard & optical mouse

    you can get all this for around $1000 AUS so you should easily be able to afford it with your stronger pound
