looks like you know what your getting
bundles are done for you and there oc and stressed
i myself didnt get a bundle and just jumped in and why not. thats what learnings all about int it.
what games you playing at the moment?
The 7950 windforce is £80 cheaper and should overclock nicely
Might be a better choice idd, where do you think I can better place that £80 (£280 under budget total)?
Depends if you need anything else ? i.e mouse, keyboard, speakers etc. Otherwise the above build with the 7950 looks good to me. The nzxt case has a removeable hard drive cage if you need more room for a longer gpu, although it wouldnt hurt to ask in the 'cases' section.
Ok, so after spending all day today reading reviews etc I have decided to order my build today.

This is what I'm going to order later if no-one else has any ideas for upgrades (I'm £280 under budget). Thanks to lee32uk and warriorlow for all your help last night. Cheers all.
Oh yeah, I left out the HDD, thanks, that could of been embarrassing!
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 32MB Cache - OEM
chosen this HDD, seems like the best option for me.
Don't you think a second 7950 might be a bit overkill? My only goal with buying this new pc was to be able to play the "higher spec" games without fps issues.
A bigger SSD might be an option though, I'll look into it.
