Approximate Purchase Date: Around this month if i get all the parts together

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Dabs.com, Ebuyer.com anywhere that uses the £

Additional Comments: Would like it to run quietly if possible,also I'm only doing things one thing at a time, I'm using a 60" TV if you need to know and a 5.1 surround sound so do i need anyhting for these? I'm almost certain the Asrock supports toslink

I would go with the ASrock Z68 Pro 3 board or even a ASrock z77 board but there both compatible. All the parts are compatible, you don't have to worry about any GPU with any board compatibility issues you can mix a nVida GPU with a AMD Board and it would work as it should. Anyways, all the parts look reliable.

For the rest of your parts I would do something like this, since you're on a budget. I can tell you some nice cases you could take a look at, or if you have a case already in mind.

Sorry I don't know Pound Conversions or even the SIGN! LOL

Case: Cooler Master Haf 912 $60 USD
RAM: Kingston, G.Skill, or crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600 Mhz $29 for the 4GB and $40 for the 8GB
HDD: Samsung or Seagate $79 for samsung hard drive $76 (ish) for the Seagate Hard drive
Power Supply: Antec, XFX, Seasonic, Corsair -- bit of a overkill but gives a lot of headroom ~ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium $99

Comes out to be $356 USD -- I know you said you wanted all the parts on Dabs but I'm in a bit of a hurry.

Sorry, I don't know if it's in your budget or if it's way under.

Did look at asrock, seem to be abit mixed in the reviews, might look abit harder at them when i've picked a PSU, RAM, and case, I know i want whats their except if i have the money left over, which i highly doubt i will go for a GTX 670
