Just odnt get that stuff form pc world, in work there and if anything goes wrong, trading standards are the only way ur gonna get a refund. Also maybe consider getting a 9600 pro gpu, i know its like 100 quid more expensive, but believe me itll be worth it!

If money is not too much of a problem, get another 512 MB of RAM. It really improves performance.
