Thanks for checking this out, as I am a FIRST time builder and this is all very new to me - I want to be 100% sure it is all fully compatible. For the record I will not be over clocking now and most likely not in the future.

Please get the Sapphire 6950 Dirt 3 edition and not the original Sapphire 6950.

The cooling and low noise on that gpu is only rivaled by the twin frozr and asus direct cu ii coolers.

Instead of the WD Caviar Black, get the samsung spinpoint f3

As for the PSU - that PSU got really good reviews but one review said it was pretty loud.

If that is not a problem for you then that is okay.

Thanks for the advice - will change the GPU to the dirt 3 version. Unfortunately from the site I am ordering parts from they do not have the Samsung, is it that much better/cheaper that it is worth ordering separately? And I am not to bothered about noise tbh, my music will probably fizzle it out :)

the spinpoint is the fastest 1tb drive out there and is also quieter.
