    You could always go the Antec Sonata 3 route its quiet, and has a 500w Earthwatts PSU very highly rated and will run all your kit easily!

    You could buy pre-built. Have a look at the Chillblast Sniper for £699.

    yeah has had some good reviews that system and a fine spec for the price, especially coming with the warranty.

    I can vouch for the sniper as im about to get my hands on one!
    My mate has had his for a couple of weeks and most games he has thrown at it look superb on Max settings. Its overclocked and everything runs like a dream. Its well worth the cash imo

    Can I ask why you guys decided on the Sniper - I'm tempted by the Chillblast Fusion Colossus, seems virtually the same spec but extra year warranty and all for the same price. PCZone gave it 93 % too. Do you reckon it would be any good to run Crysis (will the Sniper be OK for Crysis) or should I stick an 8800GTX in instead of the GTS.
