Thinking about investing in a computer around March time, how does this sound so far? Thoughts, criticisms and cheaper alternatives if you know any as I'm quite strapped for cash:

Bitfenix Shinobi -£45
XFX AMD 7970- £270
i5 3570k -£163
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - £104
128GB CRUCIAL M4 SSd - £77
Patriot 16GB Black Mamba 2133mhz £72
OCZ 750Watt ZT Fully Modular 750watt £78
Samsung 24x SATA DVD Writer - £10

Thankyou! :D

Nice case, I would not go over 8 gigs or ram as you won't max it will see 1-5fps difference in games when choosing ram with speeds of over 1600mhz so you can save some dough there
minimum power requirement for a single 7970 is "500W (or greater) power supply with one 150W 8-pin PCI Express power connector and one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended."...i would recommend going with a 550-600w power can go with a 750 w if you get a good deal on it

Do you think that there's a still competant but cheaper alternative for the motherboard? As I most likely won't be cross firing.
