    As long as the price includes delivery that's OK

    With two GPU's and a PCI-E SSD you would think a 6850k would be the better choice over the 6800k

    they forgot to add in a 6850K instead of a 6800K.

    Just open your wallet a little wider and "Add £155.01" to the total.

    Using 1080 SLi with a cheapo ribbon bridge = fail. Other than that, I like it

    The system should have had a SLI-HB bridge however there is an incompatibility with EK waterblocks, as soon as its worked out it will have a HB bridge

    You can choose a 6850K on the configurator, but in all the games we ran there was no appreciable performance gain to be had from the extra PCI-E lanes in the 6850K with two graphics cards and the PCI-E SSD. You'd definitely need more than 28 lanes, i.e. a 6850K or higher for a 3-way or 4-way SLI setup though.

    X16 x 2 = X32 yes no? Or is there something I have missed out on if spending big time would go for the more lanes, especially thinking about what the future would bring, instead of selling the 6800K one year into the future and having to spend 200 bucks or so as you want the next junk put in there where you could had saved roughly 100 bucks by being prepared and then just go a 2-3 more years being all happy.

    What is the point on going all out on everything else and leaving out the actual CPU, probably would also like to address the amount of RAM as well.
