I'm not from the UK but that Gaming bundle isn't worth it to me. You can get a much better motherboard, a better heat sink and the 3570K for the same price and spend a few more $$ for RAM

Thank for the speedy reply
but please could you be more specific as to which type
of motherboard and heat sink I should be looking for
that way i don't mess up compatibility when looking for a good price.
