And this X1900XT will only be about 30 more than the X1900GT I listed:

I've plumbed for the beefier Radeon and decided to get a new case and matching DVD RW for it ... which has put me closer to next months budget (Need a new car this month so i'm a tad strapped)

So i basicly got everything you suggested +
320GB SATA
16x Dual layer DVD rw
and a nice Akasa case.

For under £800!

For budget reasons, I'd go with a single PCI-E slot motherboard. It'll outperform dual 7600GT's also.
Too bad the Gigabye DS4 is not out here yet..... That would be a good alternative for the P5B Deluxe.
SLI witha 4x proposes a 10% loss generally

Hi there, Chozart, thanks for all your advice the other day...
I've just got all the kit you recormended to me in this thread

aaaaaaannnnd..... was wondering if you could give me some quick & easy bios settings to begin playing with when OC'ing.
(the seeting surrounding the memory seem the most complicated)

and if you have the time your recormendations on how fast to clock the GPU and ram on that 1900XT you recormended would be ace.

Cheers

Sorry to seem lazy but those stickies are so amazingly comprehensive I'm finding it hard to find some easy results tailored to my set up.
