    550W Corsair CMPSU-550VXUK, ATX, PS/2, 5 year Warranty £68.78

    Antec 300 Three Hundred, Black Midi Tower Ultimate Gaming Case w/o PSU £42.86

    LG GH22NS40 22x DVD±R, 16xDVD±DL, DVD+RW x8/-RWx6 ,12xRAM SATA, Black, OEM inc Software £15.18

    1TB Seagate ST31000528AS Barracuda 7200.12, SATA 3Gb/s, 7200rpm, 32MB Cache, 8.5 ms, NCQ £52.84

    4GB (2x2GB) Corsair DDR3 PC3-10666 (1333) Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 9-9-9-24, 1.50V £72.97

    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T, Thuban, Sok AM3, 2.8GHz, 9MB Total Cache, 125W, Retail £155.75

    Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H, AMD 880G, S AM3, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), DDR3 1866(OC), SATA 6Gb/s, SATA RAID, ATX £88.18

    768MB Gigabyte GTX 460 OC, 3600MHz GDDR5, GPU 715MHz, Shader Clock 1430MHz, 336Cores, 2x DVI/ mHDMI £173.27

    The computer will be used for uni work (currently studying computer animation) so rendering and video editing but also gaming in the spare time that i have also I have a copy of windows 7 64bit already.

    Looks really good, I don't really see any problems with it at all. What resolution will you be gaming at though? GTX460 should be fine though.

    my screen rez is 1680 by 1050. yeah I wasn't sure if I should get a gtx460 or a 5770 but I've heard good things about the 460 having a really good performance to price ratio.

    1Gb 460? I would consider the none OC version; it should cost about the same.

    If not doing SLI in the future I would say a 500W PSU may save some pennies as the market gets more competitive at this wattage and below. I have the one you listed and its very nice though; 5 years warranty too iirc.

    I quite like the look of some of the new silverstone budget cases; scan today only sometimes has some good bargains.
