    What is your system budget? Im sure we could spec you up something better than that no offence ;) .

    Dont see the point in you getting a high end cpu with 1gb Ram, crap graphics card and no doubt a psu that will fall to pieces or blow you system up in a couple of months.

    So long as you dont want to to play games.... It's fine. But the PSU and gfx card are wayyyyyyy sub-par.

    I'm not planning on playing games, thats why i went for the basic card. its more for video editing. Its also not put in the amounts.

    It should be 2 x 1gb Ram, 2 x 250 gb HDD's, 2 x Grpahics cards, and 2 monitors.

    Feel free to throw some improvements, all ideas welcome

    Then go Intel Dual Core - cheaper & better performance/results.

    Please! Please! don't skimp on case & PSU if you value your money/pc/work/etc. Its also one of the only worthwhile investments in the long run!

    Give me a sec (i skive off work) & whack-up a spec :cool:

    Did you want 2 graphics cards? Because 1 can drive/output to 2 monitors (even three but only through the S-Video port).

    Yeah because I want my 2 monitors plus my HDTV.

    Thanks for all the input, I'm serioulsy considering going intel now.

    Can anyone confirm that the 940 Dual Core is better(so to speak) than the 4400+?

    TBH, the 4400+ might be better in some if not most areas but, value-wise (+ main intended use of machine, i.e. Video Editing) the Intel will be good enough. See http://www23.tomshardware.com/cpu.html :cool:
