right, heres the layout for my gaming rigg:

cpu: i7 920
MoBo: p6t6 ws revolution
ram: corsair dominatior 6gb ddr3 triple channel
psu: quattro 850
case: cosmos pure
graphics: Radeon 5870
HD: seagate barracuda 320 gb

any reviews would be much appreciated
please DON'T write about the ASUS P6X58D Premium, i cant get one because im a UK user :( 
any info on cheaper components of equal quality would be helpful
tips on the assembley would be good as well
thank you :) 

(btw i plan on CFing later on and doing some overclocking)

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.

cpu: solid choice

MoBo: alternate to consider

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
