SSD: crucial m4 64GB
HDD: WD 250GB (can with dell 530)
PSU: Cooler master rs-500-pcar-j3

You will need a copy of win7. Can't use the dell's OS.

What's the budget? 6870/560?

cheap as
after looking on scan.co.uk have change what we are getting.

Intel i5 2500K
Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3
8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance

which was something around £280

so just need a graphic card now.

I'm think about £100 for the card and must be AMD/ATI so can crossfire them later on in life.

the dell pc can with XP home. this was upgraded to win 7 last year OEM disk so this will be used with the new PC and the dell pc with be downgraded to XP home again and given to my wife.
