  1. The setup itself is pretty decent for the most part, the parts selection is not.
    You're in the UK right?

    First of all for gaming you do not need 8GB, 4GB would be plenty.

    The HDD is quite slow, a Seagate 7200.12 or a Samsung F3 would be much better.

    Then a cheaper and reference 5770:

    Finally, the V8 is overpriced. The 212+ is almost as good for a fraction of the price:

    But with the 6800s coming out next week, you might want hold off the build for a little while.
  2. If you wait for 6800s you might change your mind so go for it.
  3. cheers guys ill give your advise some consideration and possibly adjust my list
