Also I would stick with 2 modules totalling at 8GB instead of buying two kits, because the CPU uses a dual channel controller and two memory modules won't hold you back as much as four will when it comes to overclocking, as four will stress the memory controller on the CPU a lot more. Whether you can find the use for the Hyperthreading on the 2600K or not, I think you'd be better off saving some cash and going with a 2500K, since you plan on waiting for Ivy Bridge anyway, and Hyperthreading isn't worth anything close to the extra money it costs over the 2500K.
I will be using the gpus for folding aswell, so AMD cards are no go.

That is one of the best 850w PSU and should handle 480s very well and it's also a pretty good price.
I put in the antec high current pro 850W modular psu in!

also that dell u2711? monitor which is over £600...whys it so expensive?

Do you need something that big for 2560x1600 resolution?

Also is anything over 1920x1080 really that much of a difference?

Im not being skeptic or anything, just struggling to see what would warrant spending nearly £700 on a monitor.

i wouldnt spend that much money on a computer monitor either i would rather get something like this. it wont really be all that much different to using a normal computer monitor except you can watchtv and plug in a games console and if you just wanted to check your emails and you cant be bothered to turn on your computer you can just use the internet function lol (im using a tv as a monitor )

IIRC the AX850 is slightly better than the antec one. http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=728210&mpage=1

I see...I think munaim im just gonna put a 2500k in there with 4GB cheap g.skill ram and 1 gtx 480. Couple it all with some air cooling for now.

Then when IB is out, if i feel the need to, ill buy IB 8 thread cpu (there both sck 1155 so should be easy swap right?), buy another gtx 480 and put watercooling on it all.

a 2500k with 1 gtx 480 should be more than capable of handling likes of BF3 and Mw3 right?

That's a much smarter choice, however if your set on getting IB when it comes out then why change now? keep your 920 and just get a better GPU. With the money your about to splash out a entirely new rig why don't you just get a better GPU or even better get 2. A GTX 580 should be able to handle BF3, not sure how gpu intensive mw3 will be lol but even a 480 should do quite well, the 480 and 580 there isn't much of a difference, iirc is it's like 10% or so, you should be able to overclock the 480 to a stock 580.

If you just have the upgrade bug, then yeah the smarter choice would be to get a 2500k and 4GB RAM, more specifically the Ripjaw X 1600 CL9 1.5. That, with the Asus P8P67 Pro would make a beastly rig almost similar to mine lol.

Hope that helps

Higher resolution > bigger screen
IPS panel > random tv panel

The U2711 is eyegasm, if you can afford it, get it. If not, get a 19x10 IPS like the U2411. Definitely better than any random monitor out there!
25x14 makes a huge difference but it's also very gpu-intensive. You'll be fine with the 480 sli. However, if you're going 19x10, a single 480 is enough.

lol that was a random tv panel i just went on the amazon website and looked at tvs at around the same price and the resolution thing also depends on how far away from the actual screen i sit about 4ft away from my 32 inch 1080p tv and its got the clearest image i have ever seen but then again not everyone wants to have a 25 inch+ monitor that can fit on a normal computer desk what im planning on doing is to get 2 amd/ati eyefinity graphics cards so that i can have 12 tvs connected to in a 4 by 4 layout so that it will have a total resolution of 7680 x 4320
