    I have a Budget of £900 my list of parts came up to £895
    Im looking to buy a pc that can play modern and future games very well
    I currently have a Sony VAIO laptop, however compared to some of my friends PC's its slow and it can really play any games because it has a crappy intergrated GPU.
    Later on I probally would try like Sli(is that Nvidia only?!?) or Crossifre or something or Dual or Triple Moniters when i get some more cash.

    Replace the Samsung drive with a WD Black and the GX power supply with a TX. If you need to cut costs, you can downgrade the motherboard. If the CPU comes with a cooler, you don't need that aftermarket cooler.

    Make sure that ram is a dual channel kit, not a single module.

    For the money, I'd get a fast quad core instead of a 6 core.

    A single 6970 is plenty good enough to drive 3 monitors.
