And in the UK prices are probably higher.
I have a 1TB HDD from my old rig and I still have the disk drive, it came with a copy of Windows 7 aswell so i'm sorted for an OS.
Am I thinking unrealistically? I just thought it would be cooler than getting a console since i've wanted a gaming PC forever, too expensive :/
Oh well, thanks for your help
