£500-£600 Upgrade

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey all, just need a bit of help with a few things before i buy.
Are these parts fine? Is there anything i should change?

Asus SABERTOOTH P67
or
Asus P8P67 PRO
Sapphire 6870
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz CL9 1.5V
Samsung SH-B123L 12x BD-ROM DVD±RW DL & RAM Lightscribe SATA Optical Drive
i5 2500k

Will my current PSU be enough for this build?
If it is i will probably buy the 64GB Crucial m4 SSD.

Thanks!

PSU will be cutting it close but otherwise looks fine.
If I were you I would go for the P8P67 Pro over the sabertooth.

Scan are reliable and cheap. Bought my Mobo/CPU/RAM OC bundle from them and it's been reliable for over a year now. 2 others from work have also ordered from them with no hassle. Saw the Scan guys on their stand at the Gadget Show Live this year seem a nice bunch.
