Well-known Member
Looking at getting from Aria as they are local and I can collect.


Not decided on storage yet as a mate might have a drive I can use for now and i'll add a 60gb ssd

Unsure on case due to lack of cable routing and have I gone over the top with the i5 and 560ti ?

Its going to be used to stream bluray and sky go to our 40" 1080i TV, recoding gameplay from my xbox and for playing the odd game of BFBC2 or maybe BF3 in furture, have xbox thats my main gamer :)

ANy comments or recommendations would be great, really on top edge of budget already ! So can't go more exspensive :(

I think it looks good as it is, the 560ti is good value at that price so I would stick with it. If you really wanted to cut cost and didn't want to overclock you could drop to i5 2400 then you wouldn't need the cooler and could get a cheaper motherboard too.
