Day 0

Its all paid for and 'in the post' (Mostly from EBay) now I'm starting to wonder what I might have got wrong...

Few comments to explain why these items...
X4 965 - After reading an artical showing cpu/gpu bottlenecks anything more like i5 i7 would be a waste with CF 4890.
HDTS1283 - Was recommened on a forum as on par if not better than Hyper212+ and was good price.
Crosshair IV - Lets me go X6 in the future, has 2x 16Bit PCI-E and ASUS Turbo thingy
Ripjaws - Best price i could find for C7 and solid brand
4890 - Great card imo and my son already has one so I'm planning CF when he wants 58xx.
HAF922 - Nice price and GREAT reviews, HAF932 might have been overkill.
850PSU - Read around and I think its a little (100w) over what I'll need but reasonable price and modular/quiet.
SSD - Well just because, Id like to think this was my little treat and I think its a nice drive.
