Alright. I am not sure if you are including the OS in the budget of this or not. The one I am posting up doesn't include any OS. If you want it to, well that is going to be a lot of cutting down, which I don't recommend if you want to play PS2 nicely.


EVGA GeForce GTX 460 Superclocked FTW - £114.95
Intel Core i3-2100 - £91.99
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD - £77.99
Corsair Carbide 300R Mid Tower Case - £59.99
Asus P8H61-M LE/USB3 - £49.99
Corsair Builder Series CX 500W - £44.99
Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 - £29.99
Asus 24x DVD±RW DRW-24B3ST SATA ReWriter - £20.99
TP-Link 300Mbps Wireless N PCI Express Adapter - £16.99

Total comes to ~£500.00

This is what you can expect. I am assuming the current optical drive you have is IDE, and that isn't supported by that mobo. I put in a wireless card, but I will have to do more research on which one is best given the price on OcUK.

Also rumormill looks correct in that the i3 IB is not launching till summer unfortunately, I wasn't sure of this at the time you posted up your thread. Probably best off going with a SB i3 at this point and ordering everything so you have a new computer. Once I know about the OS part we can make a final build for you.
