I should probably list what I need:

2 screens, preferably 22 inch

1 mouse - CHOSEN

2.0 Speakers - CHOSEN

1 case - ERRING.

1 GFX Card - Probably an Eyefinity 6 2GB 5870.

1 SSD - Main HDD for games, 128GB?

1 Storage HDD - 2TB probably

6GB or 8GB ram depending on socket.

1 Blu-Ray Drive

"x" Silent Eagle 100 Fans

1 Titan Fenrir + Silent Eagle Fan

FOR FUTURE OR POSSIBLY NOW DEPENDING ON PRICE

Watercooling Parts For CPU and GPU

2 240 Rad OR 1 360 Rad.

Clear Tubing

Chrome Fittings

Smallish Res.

LAING pump - CERTAIN, its the best right?

What do people think?

Why the eyefinity 6 card? seems like a waste when you will only be using 2 screens

dp you NEED 2 screens? seems like it may be a big chunk of your cash fella,also same applys to a Bluray drive is it realy needed unless u connect it up to a big screen.

6GB of RAM will suffice

storage is good maybe a 60Gb SSD if ur just using for Os

case wise why not the CM dominator advance 2 i think you can fit 2 rads in there (not sure what size) plus it looks good,Also i think its just over £80 so itle save u a penny

Ok probably sound advice on sticking with a normal 5870. Which one exactly? I don't necessarily need two screens, but I do multi-task a lot.

I'm still stuck as to whether I want to go Mini-ATX and get the Asus Rampage 2 Gene. I would like to make it as small as possible really...

You can use normal midi towers for a small rig, good MATX cases are difficult to find, not many can really cope with the amount of heat produced in a big system. Id prefer to get a good midi tower and stay ATX if it was me.

GPU wise it really doesnt matter unless you want to clock its balls off. If massive clocks dont matter, neither does the card, just buy one with a good cooler like the HIS cards we have been reviewing lately.

Hmm the HIS cards do look very nice. I want one with a nice quiet cooler on it. My Gainward has a ridiculous cooler on it that produces way too much noise. What Midi towers would you recommend?

Look at the reviews fella, I keep saying it but the Utgard really is very good especially when you consider how much it costs.

My 2 cents:

Get 2 of these monitors, great quality and value. I have one . There is no point in spending any more on a tft!!

BenQ G2420HDBL

This LED backlit model has a more even backlight compared to the conventional ccfl lit monitors. This also saves on electricity bills!!.
