    If you're giving your current system away, I suspect you'd want a replacement of something similar? £500 is pretty tight... 17" CRT monitor and a Sempron perhaps?

    It is a pretty tight budget to make a system that will game well but I think this ought to just about work and is a little better than your current system.
