OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) PC2-6400 Dual Channel Platinum Revision 2 XTC Series DDR2
BFG GeForce 8800 GTS OC 320MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)
Creative X-Fi Xtreme Gamer 7.1 Soundcard

Antec 900 case.

Please be kind ;)

Mine is still in the box untill tonight, when i get it all rigged up.

What about OCing then? Ive ordered the Artic coole freezer fan off here aswell, so with the case do you think I am ok to touch 3?

Well i got the E6600 also and the same cooler, from what i have read and been told it should be fine at 3 on air-especially as you have a nice 680 chipset Mobo aswell ;) ... im waiting to get my Gfx card before i try anything !!!

Apart from spending about £60 too much on a PSU, the rig looks very nice.

As i understand it, its worth spending the money now on a Good PSU for the future and possible SLI BEasts or short term to help give stable and high performing OCing setups. Whether i needed to buy this PSU or not im not sure, but I was talked into it by Oc'ers themselves!
