    a few changes - i couldn't order from Scan in the end the case was out of stock and i didnt want it holding the order up.

    in the end i ordered from Dabs (i had a £20 voucher so worked out ok on the delivery side of things)

    i went for the board and RAM you suggested all being a little bit more expensive from Dabs

    i was going to go for the AM2 3800 as well, but they were out of stock so i got stuck with the 4000+ for an extra £15 and i chucked on another DVD-RW as i'm not convinced my spare one is 100% working (dodgy flash i think)

    i also went for the Antec case - had to order from thecoolingshop.com though as it was only £8.50 guaranteed delivery tomorrow which isnt to painful

    fingers crossed for tomorrow now
