    Are you overclocking it? If so you could do with a meatier heat sink.

    Fair enough, I'll probably get 250gb, seagate barracuda has 16mb cache

    Re: Another one of these threads

    Few personal preference's of mine would be.

    Corsair VX 450w PSU or thoroughly recommend the 520 HX (£60ish though)

    I really would get a modular PSU in that case. Makes thing's a lot easier having done 3 builds with them now. One with my OCZ gameXstream and two with the corsair HX..was a lot neater and easier to work with the HX.. plus it's noticably quieter.

    The scythe ninja. £10 or so more than the Freezer Pro, but the freezer is quite noisey in the Antec P182 I find (have tried it)

    Deffinatly the geil RAM from above. It's great stuff and a bargain price.

    All these are just my preferences which lean towards quiet/silent PC's, if it's not an issue all your choices are fine.

    Re: Another one of these threads

    It does indeed. Comes with 2x 6 pin connectors which have an extra 2 pins sort of joined on the end so you have 2 x 8 or 6 pin in effect.
