Cheers guys, get a better setup for £8 less with these changes, anyone else have any changes or opinions on the setup generally?

Power bill isn't generally a issue due to the computer not running that often (maybe 2 hours a night)
Why would you choose that board over others? Faster chipset?

AMD chipsets generally "behave" better than Nvidia chipsets IMO, plus you get a better IGP.
Get the Biostar though, same board for less. Didn't see it just then. :pt1cable:
