Looks good, but get this instead of that HDD: http://www.dabs.com/products/seagate-1tb-barracuda-sata...
And I don't have any experience with the case. I generally like Cooler Master though.


I've been looking at that, and seagate barracuda' seem to have a bad reputation, so i'd rather pay £20 more for a good rep'ed HDD. Nice idea though :)

You may want to get low profile RAM like this if you buy an aftermarket CPU cooler in the future.

Also, this PSU is made by Seasonic, so it is high-quality and delivers the same amount of power as the one you selected, while being £18 cheaper.

This version of the 7850 is a little bit more than the Sapphire one, but their warranty covers overclocking, so if you will be doing heavy overclocks, you might want to think about it.

Thanks I'll change the RAM to your one, your quite right never thought of that!!

I'm going to stick with my PSU as its a modular one, and I'm also going to stick with my GPU as i can buy the OC'd version of it anyway and then overclock it somemore if i want..
