AMD PHENOM II X4 965 3.4GHz CPU : £115
2TB Western Digital Caviar Green : £65
Corsair XMS3 8 GB : 2 x 4 GB Memory : £43

Yea I'd say that's a pretty good price, not sure though as it's in pounds, it that like $700?

Also, I think the AMD General section would do fine

Double no.

Depending on who you are trying to sell it to , i still feel that a 15% profit is too much considering the components.

I'll probably recommend at least GTC460 768mb so they're actually given DECENT value for their hardware.

your forgetting a 20% VAT and other things when selling in UK, so its more like a 7.5% profit.

I never understand it when people spend more on their CPU than their GPU when it comes to a gaming rig.

I would get at least a GTX460 768MB, HD5770, or a HD 6850 for a graphics card.

I would also get a faster drive as that WD green only runs at 5400RPM. It's good for storage, but not as a main drive. Look into the Samsung F3s or WD blacks.

Change the CPU to a 955 BE.
Make the videocard a GTX 460/HD6870
Change the HD to a Faster RPM drive or even add an SSD drive with it.
If you are building the rig for gaming then make it 4GB of ram instead of 8GB and spend the extra money on better quality/latency ram. (I have the same ram but there is better quality out there that I would have gone with instead if I had the money)
