    So I've pretty much decided on the parts I'm going to order. I wanted to build a pretty nice gaming rig without spending too much money, and I've pretty much hit a wall with my budget now so there isn't much room to change things round. Anyway, before I go and order all these parts in about 30 minutes, I'd like a bit of feedback on them...I'm pretty happy with the decisions I've made but I can't help but second guess EVERYTHING because I'm spending so much of my hard-earned cash it's difficult to part with, haha! Sooo what do you think?

    What about your display?If u r not gonna use a display more than 21" 320MB would be enough.In DX10 u hav a bit advantage but still there r almost nothing DX10.I recomend a 19" LCD.

    Yeah I might get one later down the road once I start overclocking and refining my specs. to get more performance. I already ordered all these parts, now I'm poor but hopefully I'll have a sick PC :p

    those are some nice bits man.... I can't see any probs there at all. Good to see you are not skipping on the psu like most people try and do...

    Oh and try and get a GO stepping cpu, apparently they are the best ones to get and oc like crazy....
