EDIT: I don't know what I was saying when I said it should come out close to 1600, more like 2200 for the parts I posted lol.

Just get the 6Gb RAM set.
Like baron said the MMO might not support SLI or Crossfire, so it's up to you if you want to go with the 5970 or two gtx 480's. Either way you'll have one **** of a rig If you go with the 5970, add about a hundred more pounds to the final cost. If you go with two 480's, add about 350 pounds more.

This is a GREAT case: HAF 932 Coolermaster HAF 932 Case - Black (No PSU) : novatech.co.uk
Great cable management, quiet but awesome airflow, room for water cooling, etc.

And get this cooler: NH-U12PSE2 Noctua NH-U12P SE2 Dual Fan Quiet CPU Cooler Fitment For AMD AM3, AM2+, AM2, 939 & Intel 1366, 1156, 775 Socket Processors : novatech.co.uk
The previous model in this same series was my first serious cooler, managed to get a 4.63Ghz overclock on my 920 with it, and it'll hold you at 4.2Ghz stable 24/7

Total extra cost will be ~165 pounds


edit: also, for a powersupply you'll def want more than 600W. If you go with the 2 GTX 480's I'd recommend a 1000W power supply, if you go with the 5970 I'd say at least 750W

A person i play the MMO with told me i would only need 1 graphics card.
I would have to go with the 12GB ram since he can open around 20+ and well thats what i want to do

About the two grahpic cards, since my PC will be on mostly 24/7 would it be a smart idea to go with the none fan card?


EDIT:
On this Grahpics card;
http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/p...DI1536MD5.html
At the top it says DDR5 but when you check the specs under "Processor/Memory" it says its DDR3, is that a mistake?

I don't even think you can get any of the higher models (e.g. 5970, 5870, 480, 470, etc.) without fans. They'd all run too hot.

Leaving it on 24/7 will be fine.

Looks good

If you're only getting one 480, you can get a less powerful PSU. Personally tho I reckon you should stick with the one you have, in case you want to SLI in the future
