Hello,

Do not go with Alpine power supply. It sounds like some junk PSU brand. Go with something like an Antec or Seasonic or even Corsair.

Do you really want liquid cooling? A good aftermarket cooler like the Hyper 212+ would be just as good, unless you plan on doing strong overclocks.

Are you sure you want 560TI's in SLI? A bigger single GPU would be much better (IMO).

Other than that, looks good. Maybe even change the processor - Do you really need Hyper threading with the I7 2600K? The 2500k would be cheaper and is just as good for gaming.

Hey There thank you so much for the info. the the 2 560tis are the reason im building the system as they were in my old system but are now spare so decide to build a system . the i7 was really to appeal to a wider audience the editors and the alike.

Agree on the psu gunna get one from one of the listed companies as dont want everything going bang in puff of smoke cause the psu was s**t.

the liquid cooling h80 i just put in there for anyone as you say looking to do some serious ocing. totally understand though. im thinking of putting this up for say £900 ??? to much ? not enough ?

900 pounds? What is that, like 1800$?

If so...that price is OK. Maybe a bit on the steep side. But I would say 800-900 pounds would sound fair for a system like that. You don't want to undersell yourself for putting all the work into it, and you don't want to sell it for too much as people might not buy it.
