Have you looked at the gaming computers on Gaming PCs and Gaming Computers from Novatech
Thanks, how much did your set-up cost you?

I do that all the time. I have 2 monitors. I have spotty on the small monitor , and running league of legends on the other. Even when full screen, the background screen will not be blacked out. Ashpash21, did you receive the message I sent you for a potential build?

Do you think it would be worth going for core I7?

In my opinion if only for gaming etc no 3D modelling or heavy video editing , I'd say no, not worth the extra £100. I believe the I5 will over-clock better than the I7 too.

If I got a quad core I7. Would this be okay for WoW. Would it be okay for the Adobe Mater Collection CS6?

If you're doing video editing, the i7 would be good. Other than that, the i5 will suit you nicely.

Might go for the i7 not sure yet though. Depends how much money I have at the time when I decide to buy it. When do you think Intel will be releasing there next range of processors?

Not soon but not late. Since intel is finished with i7 tier 3( ivy bridge), it should be some time before a new one shows. Maybe like early 2013 or so.

I would recommend you getting an SSD because you don't actually need a harddrive with alot of disk space. What you need is a responsive computer that can multitask well and a graphics card that can handle multiple monitors. The processor only has to be dualcore and not much higher than 2.3 ghz I guess
