Hi All,

Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, I looked through the headers and I realise this is a shop custom pc but it seemed pretty close and I'm after component advice/opinions, again apologies if this is completely the wrong place.

The rig i've been looking at to finally replace my 5 y/o custom built pc which is failing all over the place these days is,
I know its in UK pounds, electronics are a rip off over here compared to dollar prices sigh :( 

I've never bought from overclockers before and although this has a high rating from 26 people I wondered if anyone had any thoughts about the rig components themselves and wether this seemed like a good buy, a friend of mine remarked he thought the mobo looked cheaper than the rest of the rig. It looks powerful enough to cover me for a few years of graphic design / gaming. My last pc has definate cooling issues so that would be a concern on something with a high spec, especially as I read that the ati 5870 series dumps some of the heat back into the case.

Any thoughts welcome!

Thanks <3
