Just the base unit,no keyboard mouse,sorting the operating system myself.
its not the cheapest case, there is a £29 xigmatek
Looking good,so just over 700 seems the least.
Yeah but i hate skimping on the case,silverstone is meant to be a good make isnt it?
Yes, they do quality cases.
Cool,looks like that case is going to replace the antec 300 as the budget case if its good.Does it have cable management?I cant find any reviews on it
It's a new case to Ocuk - http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18153682
Actually I think it's a new case generally!
doesnt look like it has cable management, just a hole in the motherboard tray to attach a performance cooler
Ok.Still beats the zalman z7 and the antec 300 imo
I believe it looks great, has decent cooling, comes from a great manufacturer.
Whatever RJC or stulid have speced but choose a different PSU.
any particular reason why?
OCZ are reasonable.
i actually made a mistake in my spec, i swear i clicked on the newer stealthXtreme2 version.
Sure. Non-modular and low efficiency. Case without a proper cable management plus a non-modular PSU = evil. It will be messy, period. Plus there are more stable power supplies able to provide high efficiency under heavy loads. They're not bad choices but when you spend so much money on a PC, you may as well throw another £10-20 and get a higher quality PSU.
Add in a Corsair HX650W
I dont think that will help the price
But Antec TruePower 550W wouldn't change it by much - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-118-AN&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=1088
Or get a modular OCZ if you're on a budget - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-037-OC&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=1098
