    Case is a Zelman Z11 (customised internal colour to dirty red)

    awesome read-up on the 2 x Radeon HD 7950's in crossfire, this maybe the way to go.
    could really cut some cost if i decide to buy used cards

    Hi there peeps, just thought i would post a few updates since my last post regarding parts.

    You will be happy to know i will start the build on saturday and if no one minds i will post as i go along.

    So here is what i have decided on, and a lot of this is down to a)cash b)cash c) nice to have room for upgrades when a/b are not an issue.

    CASE: is a Zelman Z11 (customised internal colour to dirty red and changed all the LED to red (was blue)
    MoBo: MAXIMUS IV EXTREME Z (wanted a good foundation for future, but hurt the wallet)
    CPU: i5 2.9Ghz 2500K (friend tested this and got it to 3.8Ghz comfortably, if its needed?)
    RAM: GSKILL 2x4GB 1600 (again, room for upgraded in 2 other slots)
    PSU: OCZ 760W (none modular)
    GPU: PALIT GeForce GTX 560 OC version 1GB
    VDU: ACER H223HQ-E LED Monitor
    COOLING:
    CPU - i opted for closed water cooling , instead of air, so in the end the Corsair H80i was the winner
    i have about 3 x 120mm and 3 x 140mm fans - there is room for 1 at the bottom, 2 at the top, 1 at the front and 2 at the back, i'm not even sure how this will work so any advice here would be good...

    HDD: WD 1TB Back Caviar
    SDD: 2 x 120 OCZ Agility 3 ( probably RAID 0 )

    KYBRD: basic (may upgrade to the new Logitech G Series)
    MOUSE: basic (may upgrade to the new Logitech G Series)

    SOUND: Bose Companion 3 (LOUD) - not that this matters i will be going to upgrade soon to the Logitech G Series headset?

    Like i say, i will take any advice on board and this is my first build so i'm so excited shame my budget was tighter than a nuns lady garden, since my car decided it needed servicing....
