    Does the included PSU have the right connectors, and provide enough umph on the 12v line for that card? Does that card fit in the case?

    OS?

    Otherwise looks great.

    Looks good to me. Since the DVD drive and the HDD are OEM they won't have SATA cables so unless the motherboard comes with some you need to get some.

    EDIT: The card should fit if it is less than 12" which I think the 580 is.

    Don't get the LiteOn. They used to be one of the best brands around, but all the recent ones I've had have had issues.

    Our lab at work (about 40 machines) use / used them. I'd say around 8 have had burning issues over the last year alone.

    I moved to Samsung and they have been solid

    Also, if you want a Sandforce based SSD, then get the Vertex 2E. The Corsair has a track record of unreliability (just check out their own forum and Google), the OCZ does not and it's the same drive as far as the consumer is concerned.

    Change the RAM too that^ It's not in stock at the minute but ring up and see if they can give you a date as its cheaper and better specced than what you've listed.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
