Default Ok, final parts list this time... Honest

Ok, so i chickened out at the last minute for my last build as it was a tad expensive. And so, being more realistic, loking at the opyiions carefully and weighing up what i want with what i really need i have come up with this...
RAM, GFX card and Processor will be OCed and thus the specs will be bumped a bit. I chose SLi to future proof the whole rig a wee bit (although it would have been better to get a 939 board to future proof it better but i'm not that bothered as the arrival of AM2 wil reduce processor upgrade options in the long term anyway... Another 6800gs at some point will do me fine )

AMD Sempron 3000+
Crucial 1Gb PC3200 DIMM
Leadtek 6800gs
Arctic cooling freezer 64 pro
400w psu
Jeantech Phong case

Total around £375-£400

So there we go, what does everybody think?

i5 2500K, MSI GTX 570 OC, 8GB G.Skill RipJawsX 1600MHz, 1TB WD Caviar Black, Zotac Z68ITX, Lian Li PC-Q08B
