Hi, Here is one setup which would be classed at mid range for gaming-

Case Antec 100 44.57p
Mobo Asus P8P67 Pro 121.51
i5 2500k 160
8GB G.Skill RipJaws X 1600mhz DDR3 ram 58.39
GTX 560ti 170
Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750M PSU 94.30
Be Quiet Dark Rock Advanced CPU cooler 39.95
1TB Sanmsung Spinpoint HDD 40.20
LG DVD-RW optical drive 14.22

That comes to a total of 573.14p

Which leaves plenty left for options such as a SSD or new monitor.

I have proberly missed something but that should be a pretty well rounded system.

All the prices were from aria.co.uk

Cheers

Paul.

I have no experience of minecraft but with all the cod games and battlefield it should play at max settings.

Another option if you are not bothered about getting a SSD or monitor would be to spend the extra cash on a slightly more powerful PSU , an i7 2600k and then getting a GTX570 the addition cost for all 3 would be around 200

and don't forget the cost of the OS. Unless of course, you are moving a retail copy.

Probably cant go for them both together should i stay with the i5 and go with the graphics card or got with the i7 and go with the cheaper card
Graphics card I would say.

You won't really notice any difference in the processor.
