Say you had £2000...

I have £2000 that I MIGHT be spending on a new computer build. What would you people buy? And what suggestions could you make for me?

The only certain thing is that the case is going to be an Antec P180 Mini. To M-ATX is a must!

I suppose you want me to get an ATCS 840 then huh?

Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine.

Forget the case, I have enough space really, I used to use my TJ07 and there aren't many things bigger.

Theres a fair few M-ATX cases about now, imho if you have £2k then there should be nothing Antec on your list.

Firstly I really need to decide what platform I'm looking at.

Would 1156 or 1336 be better for the future?

Would still like to go M-ATX but don't mind either way.

Tom's help would be really nice as he knows his stuff!

£2k you could turn into an awsome looking/performing build, an EVGA or Rampage 3 ( :drule: ), i7 930, 6gb ddr3 1600 to match the mobo, 2 5870's, 2 64gb SSD's if you fancy them if not it saves £240 (About £1,600 up to here inc SSD) + if your using a tj07 you could fit 2 loops into it fairly easy with a little moding for £400
