    Will all this jazz run on my 600w OCZ SXS PSU? It does have the 2x6pin... Sapphires site says that the minimum is a 500w, so I'm assuming yes... Will also be coupled with my 2x500Gb disks I currently have in my system right now.

    For 60 quid more, the I7 860 is better suited on those specs.:D

    What's the total budget? I'd probably go for a cheaper case...

    I want the Raven. It looks awesome. I'm looking at selling a load of kit, then saving up £500..

    Q6600, Asus Rampage Formula, 4Gb of OCZ Flex II, 4Gb of HyperX, PC7, 8800GTS 320Mb, I'm hoping to get about £350-ish for the lot.

    I might ditch the ***, and go with the EVGA P55 LE, I can get it from the states for £90.. taking the box down to £693, thus meaning, I only have to save up 350 if I make the sale price on all my current kit.

    The Corsair H50?

    I noticed you have the Corsair H50 on your list, will this fit out of the box on the 1156 CPU, just curious?

    Not out of the box, but Corsair will send you a 1156 if you've not got one, but the EVGA boards have LGA775 HSF slots in them as well as 1156.

    How about the length of the GPU. You think it's feasible on that case?:rolleyes:
