Just decided to include everything. Will be buying on Wednesday hopefully so just want to know about any last minute changes. I want to be able to play Battlefield 3 on "Ultra" settings, with decent FPS.

Is the monitor alright, etc?
The 2 SATA cables are for the optical drive and the future SSD I'll be buying.
My budget was £1200 but I've already hit around £1250 so I don't really want to go any higher.

Is there anything you'd change?

Everything works well together. The only thing I might reconsider, is Evga got GTX670. The best one, overall, of those in stock, is probably the Gigabyte Windforce. If it were in stock, I would be considering the MSI Power Edition. Nothing actually wrong with the Evga, and Evga have good rep., for support, just think there are better ones. Monitor is fine, at the budget, you're not going to get significantly better, without spending significantly more.

what you need and what you should get

no need for a toolkit. all you need is time and a philips screwdriver

buy the psu from overclockers. the one listed at amazon is wrong
