  1. 1.] If you are a gamer, please use custom heatsink to decipate hot air. You don't want to fry your processor if you are playing such a demanding game.

    2.] Regarding PSU, I would go for a Silver / Bronze 750W ~ 800W if you are running Ati 6870, intel i3 and other components that wants to crunch power!
    I would recommend these:

    Cooler Master GX 750W (Bronze)

    Corsair 750W (Silver)

    Coolermaster RS800 - 800W (Gold)
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/800w-psu-coolermaster-silent-pro-gold-80ga-d3-modular-90-eff-80-plus-gold-sli-crossfire-eps-12v-quie

    About the CASE, I would go for this, as it also has filters!

    Antec 902 (V3) Series
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/antec-902-nine-hundred-two-v3-mid-tower-atx-case-usb3-with-side-window-w-o-psu

    I have this case before and it performs VERY WELL! :)
  2. i checked them out but they seem a little too expensive :/
