thats gna eat some games lol

a few changes tho mate

look at the corsair PSU's over the CM ones

if that case looks nice to you and works for you then by all means get it,but there are better for the money

if you watching blurays on a 32' screen then keep the bluray drive if not its poinltess fella

the samsung f3 is faster and cheaper than the cav black

look at crucial and kingston SSDs even corsair force

Would a Corsair AX850 850W be enough to power this beast because I want a min of a silver rated psu and what SSD would you recommend?

TBH i assume you will be overclocking the CPU and the cards

so i would get 1kw PSU just to be sure even as just headroom and futurebility

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/128gb...-write-180mb-s

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/128gb...-write-140mb-s

i would go with the corsair IMO

Am i the only one to notice that the DVD drive is IDE?

If your going to get a blueray drive there is no need for a dvd drive, let alone an ide dvd drive.
