  8. One thing I would change, is the monitor... VE* edition.. search for a VH* edition I believe it has 2 ms delay instead of 5ms such as VE*.

    And you probably wont need 16 GB of RAM if its for gaming... 8 GB will suffice, if u need more just buy it after some months...

    the monitor has 2ms

    Very well then... looks good, I remember around 2009 VH series was their gaming monitors, thats why I suggested. I guess they have improved the VE series as well...

    Still, 8 GB ram will suffice, unless you are going to use virtual systems a lot.
  11. If I had it to 'do over':

    Asus 670 TOP - 10.0 rating
    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_670_Direct_Cu_II/33.html

    or

    MSI Twin Frozr IV 670 - 9.7 rating
    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_670_Power_Edition/33.html

    I'd lose the hi profile Gskill's for the low profile, low voltage (1.35) Corsairs
    http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/memory-pc/ddr3-pc3-12800/1600mhz/cml8gx3m2a1600c9w.html
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233199 (shows correct 1.35 voltage)

    I'd use the HX850 if it's still available over by you ....tho it's slightly less efficient, it has it has better ripple and voltage stabilization ....and that's if you are be looking to squeeze every last Mhz outta ya two GPU and CPU overclocks. If just doing moderate overclocking, then the TX750 will do just fine with twin 750's

    The Force GT is a Tier 5 SSD ..... SandForce controller with Synchronous ONFi NAND (OCZ Vertex 3, Corsair Force GT, Kingston HyperX/HyperX 3K, Intel SSD 520) @ 120 GB. At that price, I'd be looking for a Tier 1 (46% more performance)

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/buy-ssd-recommendation,3255-6.html

    Hyper 212 is a great budget cooler .... a system at your budget deserves something better, especially with hot running IB CPUs. The 612 PWM will get ya an extra 5-7C of cooling

    http://www.novatech.co.uk/search.html?s=Hyper%20612

    I'd want a 120 Hz monitor ... couldn't find one of these on nova site
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236092

    Your case - 9.00 rating

    Corsair 500R - 9.25 rating £10 cheaper
