    Yeah, that looks like a pretty nice rig there, don't need to change anything really.

    Just buy it soon cause IIRC the X1800XT is on special offer this week only...

    £199.95 £199.95 - as its on This Week Only

    when i do purchase it i may go for that Swiftech CPU waterblock and watercool it as my current system is watercooled and i may aswell carry on doing so, but i heard good things about that Scythe Ninja cooler

    if the need for a slient machine outways the cost of a water cooling setup then go for it. otherwise the Ninja will work perfect
