Approximate Purchase Date: (e.g.: this week (the closer the better)) 10 days time.

Budget Range: (e.g.: 600-800) Before / After Rebates £1100

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies) - Gaming, CAD, Surfing the internet, watching movies

Parts Not Required: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS) **Include Power Supply Make & Model If Re-using** - Monitor

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.:, -- to show us selection & pricing) - Ebuyer

Country of Origin: (e.g.: Grand Fenwick)- UK

Parts Preferences: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to use an AMD CPU & Biostar mobo with a 24" LCD and full tower case) - Asus Motherboard, Intel CPU, that's about all the preference I have.

Overclocking: Yes / No / Maybe - Maybe at some point (I'd like some capability), but i'm not basing the build around trying to max out its performance.

SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe. Not at the moment - not for a year at least

Monitor Resolution: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200) - 1920x1080

Additional Comments: (e.g.: Need to have a window and lots of bling, I would like a quiet PC) - I'd like a quiet gaming PC capable of running the latest games at almost max settings. However, I hate noisy computers, so I'd really like it to be as quiet as possible.

Here's a list of components I've chosen so far. I'm no expert (this is a first build) so any feedback/ changes would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

If you're not overclocking now, why not buy a cooler later and save money now? I would also change it to something cheaper.

I'd change the card as well, but to this PNY one:

Your MB is cheaper now as well.
