  1. Thanks a Lot
  2. May I ask what do you mean by "animating" if you mean watching anime, then an i7-2600k would be overkill, modern games (2011 and before titles) do not utilize more than 4 cores. An i5-2500k would definitely save you quite a few pounds / bucks.
    As for UK sites, is pretty solid, so is amazon, obviously. ^.^"

    As for case fans, I have only use a few
    They are extremely quiet and "sufficient".

    As for CPU cooling, I would suggest the Corsair H80 or even the H100...
