Aite guys as the topic says i'm basically wondering if this setup i've set out(first time builder :) ) is worth the price i'm paying, if any improvements could be made ect ect. Basically my limit is 1,600 EURO for the rig itself, got 400 set aside for my monitor ect (Monitor i'm going for is the 24" Samsung SyncMaster B2430H.

well >> http://boards.ie/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=... << that's the build I have so far, so any people care to take a look and see how they'd change(improve) on the current build, as I said, 1,600 EURO for the rig, that includes OS ect :) 

Thanks guys, kev.

Thats what i would go for, and for the money you have left buy another 6870 to go in CF..... will give you the same gaming experience as the one you showed and this one is cheaper.
