    He wont need a cooler to start, but I like your build.

    With that LG 22" 1080p I suggested I think itll be a good build.
    IINexusII and Exrotz say thanks.

    No, Get IINexusII configuration with my monitor. For the last time an Intel Processor will not with with a AMD 990FX motherboard.

    Forgot about that. Okay, so that's all I need correct?
    Apart from the standard Mouse, etc.. If I wanted Wireless internet would I need to get a Wireless adapter to connect it to the internet?

    I used that, as one of the members suggested.

    I've got no skills in building a computer, but I'm sure I'll figure it out somehow. aha.

    Exrotz,

    Bear in mind, that on Amazon for each part you are buying from a "seller". Not from Amazon directly. That seller you are buying from will give you even less support than if you buy directly from Amazon, which is a low benchmark compared to a specialist.

    There are delivery costs associated with the DVD drive and video card. One of the advantages of buying from Ebuyer, Scan, Overclockers, Novatech, Dabs is you can enjoy free delivery.

    If you are in the UK you can't buy from the Amazon .com site for most items. 9/10 there is restrictions.

    These are things you should really think of before hand.
    Exrotz says thanks.

    Okay, I will do.
    I'm not so worried about support really..
    I'll check prices and if I can order and such before hand. If not, I'll order from somewhere else.

    Its often cheaper to buy every single component from 1 site. Try not to mix and match websites, unless you find an exceptional deal.

    Support can be crucial. I've been building computers for 10+ years and sometimes components just "stop" working. I've had components work one day and then stop working the next. Shit happens. What happens if 6 months in your heat sink falls off it's socket and the processor burns out?

    You contact Intel and they say fuck off contact us in year 2-3 when your warranty kicks in, year 1 you have to RMA through the retailer.

    So you contact the retailer, the Amazon "seller" and the seller says fuck off I follow Amazons TOS which states refunds/returns only in first 31 days.

    Now you are stuck and have to fork out another £100+ on a new CPU.

    The CPU was just an example, it might happen with another component. You might be lucky, it might not happen, but why risk it? (and I've read similar situations not with Amazon but with Ebay where this happens)

    I've put together a final build for you: added the monitor nvidiaintelftw recommends and also the z77-ud3h recommended by Crap_Daddy, so you'll get full support for Ivy Bridge should you feel to upgrade. also changed the case and PSU to Antec 300-2 and Corsair 650W, better PSU and the Antec 300 is one of the best cases for the price.

    eBuyer is one of the best on-line retailers in my opinion. good support services and you'll get everything in one nice box :) free shipping too if you wish.

    if everyone agrees then you should go for my option :)
