Change the case to something like an NZXT Beta and put the money you make back towards the cheap 650W BeQuiet PSU. Other than that it looks good... sure you couldn't stretch a bit further for a 5850?

Superewza spec is pretty good, if you dont like the look of the Nzxt you could go for a coolermaster elite 335 instead and you also qualify for free shipping so use the money saved for a couple of extra fans for the case.

5850 im liking that! it would be really rude not to! for the sake of 50 pounds.

also thinkig of getting a modular power supply so i don't have cables all over,any recommendations?

looking also to change the case to the antec 300,will it all fit in? est the 5850?

thanks.
