    Hi
    I would like to build a machine that I can expand on when budget allows.
    I want win xp pro.
    I would want some game playing capability, though a decent card can wait.
    A 19" tft would be nice, but a 17" would do if budget demands.
    I don't think sli will be nesesary, but an otherwise well specced board is a requirement.
    No mouse or keyboard required.
    Can I get this for about £650?

    Thanks in advance
