you will need a full tower... the 9800GX2 is gonna be huge... also get a power pc & cooling 610 silence power supply

other than that it looks bad ***

- Is there a version of the Antec P182 that is full tower because thats one of the nicest cases I've seen in my opinion.
I cant find the Power PC & Cooling 610 on any UK websites...Can you recommend a similar PSU?

EDIT:
But if I did go with a full tower case i would get this :
Coolermaster Stacker 831 Special Edition with Silver Mesh - No PSU - Ebuyer

Everything looks ok. Although I would suggest a hard drive like Seagate's 7200.11 series:
Seagate ST3500320AS 500GB Hard Drive SATA II 7200rpm *32MB Cache* - OEM - Ebuyer

OK I'll get that hard drive instead.
Anything else you would change?
Also am i right in thinking that the 9800GX2 is gonna be a let down?
Should i just get an 8800GTX/Ultra

I guess we won't know until it releases. I don't know which review on the GX2 to believe, as there are so many of them. If it is a let down, after it releases, the 8800GTX/Ultra should come down in price.

Yea...Ultras are just not in demand anymore, due to the success of the 8800GTS 512 or HD3870 X2, and even the 8800GT 512.

I'm guessing a 10-20 drop? Not sure, just a guess. But I know it's not a significant drop.

ya change the HDD to a 7200.11 and the PSU to a 610 silencer
and since this is a high end build i recommend getting CAS4 OCZ Reaper's 2 x 2gb
