    RAM's a bit expensive...

    Otherwise looks fine. You dont need the 620w HX get the 520w.

    4Gb G.Skill DDR2 PC2-6400 PQ CL5 Series 800MHz Dual Channel kit

    slightly tighter timings

    4GB G.Skill DDR2 PC2-6400 PK Series (4-4-4-12) Dual Channel kit
    tighter still

    Much as I hate dabs
    dabs.com - OCZ Technology 2x2GB 240DIMM PC2-6400 Gold (OCZ2G8004GK)

    Personally i'd go 4x1gb because it's so cheap
    GeIL 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-6400C4 800MHz Ultra Low Latency DDR2 Dual Channel Kit (GX22GB6400UDC)

    Surely a fellow Staffordshire guy can see I put I already have the 620w! Cheers for the ram recommendations aswell! Would prefer 2x2gb as then I can go 8gb (always nice to keep options open)

    Also get the 1600RPM S-Flex. It's still as nearasdamnit silent and will keep the CPU cooler. Plus you can always adjust fans down, never up...

    Been out of the loop for a month or so but wouldn't a P35 board be just as good and cheaper?

    Re: La critique *Yawn?*

    depends how frequent you want to upgrade really.

    X38 has 1600mhz fsb support and pcie 2.0. so if you want a new cpu in a year or so then its not a bad way to go. But if you want to do another big upgrade a few years down the line the P35 is a lot more cost effective.

    I'm buying X38 for the reasons Mike has stated, I probably won't upgrade anything but the graphics card but I like to keep my options open, and then I have PCI-E 2.0 which will be good for future GPU's
