Hey guys I had a thread here last year about my proposed PC, I was thinking of bumping it but this build is very different so I thought i'd open a new thread.

Approximate Purchase Date: next week, maybe tomorrow

Budget Range: £400

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, case, HDD and disk drive

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: ebuyer

Country: UK

Parts Preferences: No preferance

Overclocking: Yes - but way ahead in the future

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, but I think i'd need a better PSU first

Monitor Resolution: 1650x1050

Additional Comments: This is what I have so far, it reaches the absolute zenith of my budget:

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z68P-DS3 Z68

CPU Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz

GPU PowerColor HD 6850 1GB

RAM Crucial 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3

PSU OCZ Stealth Xstream II 500W PSU - 3x SATA 1x PCI-E

Thoughts? My main concern is the PSU, I don't intent to crossfire with it but it should last until If i decide to, right? Overall I think this is the best I can get for my money but i'd love to here your thoughts before I buy.

Edit: I'll be using this case, would everything fit ok?

Yes the OCZ SXSII 500W will support a system with a 6850 and probably is the best choice at ~£40.

And everything should fit in the case fine.
