  1. i would get this ram instead (idk if you can buy from newegg)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226050

    and i highly recommend this:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256058

    besides that, everything looks good, but also, get a 500 GB hdd or get an ssd.
  2. P6T range is a good choice of mobo as is the CPU.

    There are only two items in your list that I would quesiton.

    1) Quattro 850 PSU..... never heard of them and would recomend sticking with
    Corsair / Antec / OCZ

    2) HD - not sure how much you want to spend on a HDD - but ebuyer have the
    Samsung Spin Point F3 at a reasonable price.

    cant get redline products in UK, also you sure the MoBo is good? built for a workstation and quiet expensive - know of any alternatives?
  5. cpu: solid choice

    MoBo: alternate to consider http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131390

    ram: Grab the Mushkin 998601 if you can (6-7-6-18 timings)

    psu / case: Gonna recommend Antec 1200 w/ CP-850 as a considerable quality upgrade

    graphics: solid choice

    HD: Get a 7200.12 or Spinpoint F3 w/ 500 GB per platter
