    looks good to me, although theres a few things i would change.

    is he going to be overlocking? is he going to be going crossfire at some point? if the answer to both is yes, then i would go for a slightly bigger psu, 600w or so, just to give you a bit of headroom.

    dvdrom and dvdrw? any reason?

    as above, if overclocking, might want to consider 6400 ram.

    the x1900xt is going for around 200/210 mark.

    Yeah, get an X1900XT http://forums.hexus.net/showthread.php?t=84198 and spend the extra £100 on something else.

    looks good as above, and id second the value select if not ocing and save some money

    also to save a little more go with the oem version of the E6600 as your getting the freezer 7 pro and you dont need 2 coolers

    also is the lableflash really needed on the dvd rw?? just get a better drive for the same price, maybe the samsung sata drive as will allow better cable management
