thats the one thing i'm not 100% on. it's on case i go sli in the future. but with all the massive leaps in gpus i dont really need to. if you can suggest something better (for gaming and overclocking) for the same price (£75), preferably lower even (i can hope) then that'd be great. but i'm literally buying it all tonight.

The Gigabyte 965P-DS3. Great for overclocking, and it's cheaper.

what size is your screen? if its 20" or over the 640MB version would have been better!
Everything else looks sweet though

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)

More ram on the gpu helps with higher resolutions.
