Hey there,

Is there anything you'd change about this build, I'm looking for a very quick, high capacity game capable machine. This is what I've designed so far. I'm in need of any advice - I'm not too PC savvy as I've used a mac for the past 5 years, so any advice about the components I've chosen and any changes you'd make would be greatly appreciated.

G-Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz RipjawsX Memory Kit CL9 (9-9-9-24) 1.5V
Asus P8P67 LE R3 P67 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard
Intel Core i7 2600k 3.4GHz Socket 1155 8MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor 252535
XFX HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Dual Mini DisplayPort HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card
Corsair Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
NZXT H2 Black Mid Tower Case 263600
OCZ 750W Fatal1ty Series Semi-Modular PSU - 4x PCI-E 6x SATA 235519
Asus Xonar DS PCI 7.1 Soundcard
D-Link AirPlus Xtreme-G DWL-G520 108Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter
Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache - OEM
OCZ 30GB Vertex SSD 2.5" SATA-II Read = 210MB/s, Write = 135MB/s
Be Quiet SilentWings 14cm Case Fan

Price is around £1000
I'd like it to be very silent, but very quick - Able to play high requirement games at high settings but with only 1 graphics card.
