going to build my own PC (High Performence gaming), enjoy electronics and building so its sort of like a hobby aswell as saving £££.
Ive got a budget of around £1000 and below are the components im thinking of buying what I want to know is can any of these components be better for the money? My knowledge is fair but not extencive at all.

Realised most currency here is in $$$ in which case £1000 = ~$1600
Seems good, but you don't need the sound card, the onboard audio is a good one. If you can add a ssd in there, the better. Also if you're planning to overclock, get an aftermarket cooler like the hyper 212 evo, it's cheap in the uk.
If this is for HIGH performance gaming, get windows 7 64 bit, as it doesn't have compatibility issues, get a CPU cooler, and for goodness sake, don't use wireless - use an Ethernet cable. It's WAY faster, and way more reliable.
