looks great too me. The case you bought is well built and think it has fans in it so doubt u`ll need any extra cooling unless you oc which i dont think you will with value ram. It`ll be fine for high end gaming and video editing have fun

I would recommend getting the Leadtek 7800GT as it is only £210 (not sure the price on ebuyer) and it performs very close to the 7800GTX and even better at lower resolutions.

Also, do you really need to spend that much on a case? I would recommend the Thermaltake Soprano

yeah overclockers are good, but sometimes thier prices are higher due to shipping costs think its £8 or £10. I use scan If im going for cheap reliable parts. But if I want good quality like high end RAM Id go to overclockers.
