Nah do not buy from Overclockers.co.uk. Used to be a forum member over there, not only is the forum full of racist cunts, but the owner Mark 'Spie' Proudfoot is a fucking racist c*nt. Do a Google and you will see. Prices are alright but you can get better deals buying from Dabs/Microdirect/Scan seperately.

Buy your memory from crucial.com/uk unless you want some badderman Corsair/Mushkin stuff.

What do you want the PC to be mainly for? Gaming/audio/video/media box?

^ Didn't know they made PSUs too, deep. Yeah definitely don't skimp on the PSU. I copped some budget gold plated Qtec 550w ting years ago and it blew up on me about 6 months after purchase. Was like 30 quid. One I have now cost about £70 and has lasted solidly getting run 24/7 (at times) for the like 2 years.

Dont buy a cheap one. I have that same one but modular.

You dont need 850watt unless you want 2 gfx cards. 650-750 should be fine. But it gives room for future upgrades.
