Im not thinking of raiding as i have online back up for all my files already and i may at some point be making a server so i wont be thinking about raiding.
The case has already been bought, in fact nearly a year ago.
I have added a better ssd to my list to replace the nova.
I need lots of cores and threads even if that sacrifices some speed.
Here is my new list: http://www.amazon.co.uk/registry/wis...rlist_go_o_C-4

Have you not listened to any of us? Intel is a much better platform, and why get 2 7770's? Just get a 7870

Didn't notice that it was a bundle, for Intel and the 7870, you are always better off with one good gpu instead of two worse gpus
What's the point of having all these cores if you get better performance and less power consuption with an Intel cpu?

Theres only 1x 7770 and intel may be better but a cpu with 16 threads just suits my needs better. And i have taken your info on board dont worry :P

No it doesnt, in benchmarks the 3770k clearly beats the 8150

Oh god not this old chestnut. Yes the AMD CPU may have 8 cores and 16 threads but the architecture is poor, very very poor so it doesn't perform well. The 3770K on the other hand has 4 cores and 8 threads, and the architecture actually works and works very well indeed. In every benchmark, application you name it the 3770K always performs better than the FX8150.

Comparison here

I approve of this build here, getting anything else just wouldn't be a smart move.
/end

EDIT: And I see you already have a case so rule out the 400R and upgrade the card to a 7850.
/end again.

Depends what case he has. If he has a crap one with limited airflow and space inside he'll want a new one, if it's good then yeah no need for a new case. If so i'd actually get a GTX 570, it's cheaper and faster than a 7850 but just consumes a bit more power
