Hey guys,

After having the urge for literally years to build my own rig, i have finally decided to take the plunge and give it a shot.
My budget is not all that flexable, although i do plan on buying separate parts over the next couple of months. so i may or may not be able to sqeeze a bit more out of my desposable income.

I'm mainly looking for something to game on, although i do use music/film editing software occasionally.

I have so far put together a small shopping list which i have popped together in the amazon wishlist below.

Sound card, case fans, thermal paste and hard drives etc are already taken care of, i wondered if you guys could have a quick look over the list and point out any glaringly obvious errors i have made or better bang for buck alternatives i could consider?

Thanks in advance.
