    get the OcUK ATI Radeon X850 XT PE 256MB DDR3 TV-Out/DVI/CRT (PCI-Express) - OEM

    its only £328 and get a artic cooler on it for a extra £20 and still save yourself 30.

    change the heatsink to a xp-90 / ystech 90mm fan to if u plan on overclocking.

    Its up to you but I'd swap that 74 gig raptor for 2 36 gigers and raid 0 them It should cost the same price.... And they'ed be faster! Other then that wimpy storage I cant find anything wrong with your setup... Hey, wait... Wheres your soundcard? Thinking Audigy 2 ZS?

    Edit: And if you want a better PSU ditch that tagen and get a PC power and cooling if you can aford it.... And set aside some cash for your PPU as well

    My suggestion would be to avoid OCUK at all costs, and get the same for cheaper at www.cpucity.co.uk

    I'd also get an Artic Cooler 64 (if you want low noise) and OC your San Diego like hell. Apart from that looks good, just hope you don't get a ticking Tagan :/
    Sick of using good companies? Then why not try a bad one - Overclockers UK. Officially the worst service this side of the Kwai.

    Can't really see too many problems......although may I suggest:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=184657

    This cooler is quieter and much much much more efficient that the Freezer variety that you have selected. Even though this is an air cooler, it has been known to cool a loaded A64 to 17 degrees below stock cooling......and on a second rig I've built, it got it down by 12 degs compared to the standard one that came with the CPU.

    Just a thought.

    I will bear that in mind - i want to try the Arctic Cooler as i have seen a lot about them - however, i may well get both to compare them - they dont cost much so its not gonna break the bank

    ask me in a day or two, i have this mobo and memory if you hadn't guessed, and am having some serious issues at the moment!

    its been 'fine' in my abit ic-7 max3 for 6 months, not a single problem, other than not being able to post at correct timings (fine at 3-3-3-8 rahter than 2.5-3-3-8 on an intel rig) ok big prob, for some, but that really doesn't make much difference to me! now, my sticks would not even overclock by 1mhz... well, not stable! that DFI motherboard runs at 200.9mhz.... and is the slowest it'll go. i'll be doing a bucket load of testing tonight once d&d online trailer has finished downloading! If its a dodgy stick, the lifetime warranty is handy, including using mem dividers! i'll get back to you.
