Hey guys, i'm building a pc (a gaming pc), and ive chosen everything, and i just wondered if you could give feedback on what im getting.
Im not planning on overclocking anything, thats for one reason why i got Value RAM, and i would like to lower the price abit, so if you could just tell me what i could cut out of it so i can lower the price (you know, for stuff that isnt needed etc.)
Help would be great. Specifications are as follows:

Mouse - Logitech G5 Laser Mouse - 2000dpi USB2 PC/MAC - £44.29

Hard Drive - (2x) 250GB SATA300 Samsung SpinPoint P120S (SP2504C) (7200rpm, 8MB) - NCQ - £64.91 (x2)
Motherboard - Abit AN8 Ultra PCI-E S939 NF4 DDR400 SATA RAID Gbit Lan 1394 USB2 7.1Ch Audio - £76.36

i would say change the mobo to an MSI K8N NEO4-F if you arent OC'ing and if you are a DFI NF4 ultra-D. DO NOT GET A CASE + PSU COMBO!! tell me what psu you are getting so we know if its good or bad. I would say get a leadtek video card sense i dont like asus

Yes good PSU, although If you want to save money you could go with a 7800GT instead of the GTX, performs much like a GTX especially in lower resolutions, since your getting an LCD monitor I would go with the GT because you can only play it at 12x10 resolution (unless you get one of the really nice LCDs which costs you an arm or leg). the GTs are $160 USD cheaper which is around £90.

And you might not want to go with integrated audio and go with a sound card, specifically the Creative Labs X-Fi XtremeMusic which runs at about $110 USD or £70 online.

But either way you should go with EVGA, Leadtek, or BFG. Do not get an XFX gpu.

Other then switching to the MSI Neo4 board that pzerofgh recommended I would say your good to go.
