Total : £1316.98 I put a 750w PSU to be future proof if you wanna go with SLI. You have everything even mouse mat MikeyT321 December 7, 2011 6:34:32 PM Okay thanks for that, Just a few observations: Why have you gone with a modular PSU and not a regular 750w? Also from reviews I have had to SLI a GTX 570 you need atleast a 850w...? The Case doesn't have front panel USB 3.0 ports which I kinda really need/want. I'm probably gonna save money on the mouse because I really wasn't intending on spending that amount of money just on a mouse. The monitor doesn't have built in speakers so I think I will need some of them. I have also heard that 8gb was probably the norm for a gaming PC. Anyway thanks a lot for the suggestions. And please keep them coming...

MikeyT321 December 7, 2011 8:14:01 PM That is more what I was looking for, you have got a lot of good hardware for a very good price thanks a lot for the advice! MikeyT321 December 7, 2011 8:21:56 PM However no HDD so we are looking atleast £80 more... I supposed I could get a regular 560ti in the January sales? metal orient December 8, 2011 3:05:58 PM I wouldn't get an HDD until the prices settle at least a bit. And the 560 Ti 448 is not compatible with the standard 560 Ti Can't find your answer ? Ask !
