Ah, I was going to suggest the E6750 for about $100 less. Then OC to the E6850 speeds on stock cooling (or an AC7 Pro if you were nervous about temps) The E6850 is still a great CPU, just a little overprice in terms of performance. My $0.02.

Anyways, enjoy the build. Should be a solid piece of gaming equipment. :)

Samsung comes highly recommended here, I don't think you can really go wrong with them. Personally, I've seen some pretty nice pictures from Viewsonic... steer clear of Westing House if you can though. I had one of those with a crappy screen (started to burn and fade after three days of owning it on economy mode, the dullest setting.) It was pretty cheap in terms of craftsmanship and price. Another lesson of "You get what you pay for". :p

cheeers mate, im happy with the CPU should be able to OC to 3.6 or something, which will be interesting...

thanks for all your help

the E6850 does come with a heatsink doesnt it?

BX80557E6850 , yep, this is the model number for the box version that comes with heatsink, not the oem version so you're good.

Hey stephenstern i would suggest Samsung 206bw 20" monitor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001095, not only because it's one of the best, well if not the best 20" monitor, but also i'm getting one myself. It's class of its own, your will never regret your decision if you purchase one! My friend got one of them from http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO-051-SA for £ 174, and wow after seeing that baby in action i couldn't resist and i had to get one myself!
Good Luck!
