Hello all,

This is my first "Ask the community" so please dont get mad if i mess up the thread a little.

Im about embark on my first "from scratch" build and i cant wait to get started. Im about to order 2 blocks of components, first lot this week (4 components) and the other lot (3 components) in about 3 weeks time. This is down to my good auld fashioned budgeting limitations and me having other components already. The new Rig will be for gaming mostly as my current beast of a PC is more poodle when it comes to the likes of battlefield 3. Anyways these are the components ive choosen after a lot, (i mean a hell of a lot) of research, any advice would be hugly appreciated.

P.S, i do have a basic understanding of computer building as i mostly upgraded my current computer myself, also my budget is at its absolute limit, i mean if you suggest a more expensive component please suggest where i can save on another part.
Thanks in advance,

Okay - so what do you want from us? You've got this covered! I like all your "lots" (though I am partial to Asus boards) and don't see any problems with any of it. Good luck on your build. :)
