Hey guys,

Ordered it on thursday. Bargained with them over the phone and got a further £80 knocked off, hehe.

They say its going to be here early next week... which I presume they mean either monday or tuesday. Really cant wait.

Oh, and instead of the Leadtek GeForce 7900 GTX Extreme 512MB GDDR3 , I went for the BFG GeForce 7900GTX OC with 512MB GDDR3.
It was £50 cheaper, and the specs were only slightly less than the extreme. Plus I like the look of the BFG one more!

I went for the case in black by the way. Hmms.

Anyhoos I'll post pictures when its done, thanks for all your help! (^_^)

Nice! English people need to do that more often.

Enjoy building the PC.

Wow, that is one KILLER case, mind posting a link where you bought it, I am thinking about building a new rig in about 3-4 months and thinking about getting a new case.

Sure man I got it from Overclockers UK. linky

There may be cheaper places to get it now, so i'd shop around a bit, but Overclockers UK is generally cheap and i've had nothing but good experiences with them.

Case is the Thermaltake Kandalf in Black. You can get it in silver, too
