i will do some reading-up on overclocking in the next few days ...

oh, will that DVD drive be able to burn/rip regular CDs?

656.5

this is a very powerful system, and it will overclock very well. The XT should also overclock very nicely, due to the efficient Powercolor cooler.

You would want to consider this

if your gonna overclock. Its worth it and its an eccellent cooler.

If you want to save then i would suggest getting a smaller hard drive.
dam theres so less selections at scan.co.uk but this looks like the best you can get out of this website.

STRONGLY AGREED. I was originally going to put it from ebuyer, but it dosent even have any good P35 mobos. lol. All UK shops are like this I mean you have to build from like 3 shops if you want to get precisely what you want. I wish we had newegg here as its also so **** expensive in UK compared to US.

Yes the DVD can handle CDS.

About the printer- it will be fine. The board has even a paralell port. This also goes with the mouse and keyboard, as the board has 2 PS/2 sockets.
