Call that a GTX and you've pretty much got the 'Comms Rig'. Has been serving me well for some time now and I don't think I'll need to be putting my hand in my pocket for a while yet. Having said that, hardware isn't my forte. I'm sure Matt will be all over this thread when he gets in tomorrow morning! Wink
Edit: I'd defo go for a 22" widescreen for your monitor BTW!

Bob bought a new system, probably around this time last year, which he had "fun" with.

Which is also spookily similar to my system specs, apart from at the moment I only have 2GB RAM but over a TB of HDD space.
