Correction, the £750 is with the sabertooth 990fx mobo not the crosshair would be £35 more with the apologies...

you dont need 16 gig of RAM for gaming
2 x4 gig is plenty

I would not buy a 7950 with the reference cooler . Gigabyte , asus andd sapphire have better coolers . Especially the Gigabyte windforce

I appreciate your advice and that is what I need to start building this PC.

Apart from what you have mentioned is there anything that I need to change from my list? I'm thinking of using gigabyte ga-990fxa ud3?, Sabertooth 990fx r2.0? Or stick with the crosshair v-formula for a bit of future proofing and reliability?

So far, I got the amd 8350cpu,sabertooth 990fx r2.0 mobo,2x4 (8gb) 1600mhz ripjaws ram,m4 64gb ssd,seagate barracuda 1tb hdd,evga gtx660Ti gpu,lian li k59b case, and waiting for my be quiet 630w psu.I would appreciate any suggestion with regards to power supply as I am not sure what wattage is neccessary or sufficient for this system. Thank You!
