I dont have any idea what my motherboard should be and stuff like that but i am ordering a pc and i would like someone to help me out.
I want a 4 core processor
6gigs of ram
a good video card (more than 1gb of memory)
1tb hdd
i need to have a list of things i will need so the guy can buy the parts and build it.
Dont tell me about building a pc myself. I need help in choosing a PSU, motherboard, dvd writer/reader and all other stuff. My limit is 400£ but if i could spend a few more pounds and buy a better part that would dramaticly increase the speed then tell me about it.
Thanks in advance

Is this meant to a gaming machine and which online site do you prefer to buy from?

The prices are different from your local shop to different online stores. I'm gonna need the full price list of all the parts the local shop sells.

Building off that parts list.

CPU: Black Edition means it can overclock easily, but there isn't anything saying you must overclock. It's inexpensive and has decent performance. If you can wait until Bulldozer comes out, you may be able to get a newer CPU at a similar cost. Unfortunately pricing is largely unknown. That is, except for the flagship FX-8150P, which is aroud $300 USD.

Motherboard: That motherboard uses a new chipset, which you should always get if possible. Don't get too excited though, it's a 970 chipset which is basic and will do well unless you use multiple graphics cards. BTW, if you are planning on using SLI or Crossfire, you may want a 990FX motherboard. Replacing a motherboard is a real pain, by getting one that can handle a newer CPU, on top of being backwards compatible, you plan ahead a few years so you don't have to upgrade this part then.

RAM: This is good, but if you're really on a strict budget, you can make do with a single 4GB stick.

Hard Drive: Good, though you probably won't see any benefit from SATA III due to drive design. If you used an SSD, that can absolutely use SATA III very effectively.

Case: Decent, though if you are going to upgrade to higher-end graphics cards, you would need a bigger case and power supply.

Optical: Good.

Graphics Card: That is a middle-of-the-road mid-range card. It is essentially a rebranded 5770. For reference, the Radeon 68xx is the higher performing mid-range cards with the 69xx being the high-end gaming cards.

OS: Obvious, though, if you do network-based backup to a NAS, you need Professional, otherwise, Home Premium will do well.

Having that setup will go over the budget of £400.

For those not wanting to convert GBP to USD, 400 Pounds is roughly 650 Dollars. In the U.S., $650 would get a mid-range AMD computer. Once you enter the price category of that i5 CPU, you are entering upcoming Bulldozer territory. I suggest waiting until late September to buy if you want to go that route since that release should cause prices to go down.

amerkiller1995,
When replying to a post, don't use the QUOTE button under the post, unless there is something specific in the post, that you want to quote.
Either use the button at the top, or bottom of the page labeled Add Reply, or type into the text field at the bottom of the page, labeled Fast Reply.
It keeps from cluttering up the board with unnecessary quotes. :)
