I think it's probably too expensive, but a great system if you can afford it :D

That's a very nice build, but there are some small changes I would make to lower the costs a bit.

The GTX 670 performs almost equal to the GTX 680, and equal when overclocked, and also saves you 100$. Get either the ASUS or Gigabyte version.

When getting a GTX 670 instead of a GTX 680 you can drop the PSU to a 750W if you want to have the possibility to run 2 GTX 670s in SLI later on. If you want really high quality, go for the Corsair AX750.

Personally I'm not a big fan of water cooling, so I would go for a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO instead.

Make sure you get the OEM version of Windows 7

the Asus GTX 680 TOP graphic card and run a lot better then a 670
and the AX850 is only 1Pound more at the moment
and the OS is that one you put and water cooling is the best thing to get i think but i will take a look

The 670 performs pretty much the same compared to the 680. I forgot to mention there is a ASUS TOP version of the 670 as well, I just couldn't find it on Newegg. I'm sure other sites have it. That card is actually the only card techpowerup.com has given a perfect 10/10 rating.

Since you're mentioning pounds, may I ask which British website you are buying from?

They don't have it in stock. Newegg only has the DC2.
August 12, 2012 8:03:16 PM

I'd still go for the GTX 670 though. More bang for your buck than the 680.
