For the processor, if you would be willing to wait until end of July, you can consider picking up a Q6600 for ~$266, and maybe upping the GTS to 640MB depending if you are gaming at higher resolutions.

that might be an option, will that be the same in the UK though?

I personally would up the ram speed to 800 and get a CPU cooler for OC'ing

Thats is an overclocking board,I have one myself, and that processor (If you don't want to do what he suggested) is a great OC'ing chip.

If you want your PC to be a beast on air get..

Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme CPU Cooler - Retail

I also fancy this one...

I'd say the P5K-Deluxe will be a better choice.......just remember, if you even plan on a Quad-Core, the P35 chispet on the P5K-Deluxe is a much better overclocker for than the P965 in the P5B-Deluxe, it's been proven.

And overall for overclocking as well.

Yes i would also recommend 800MHz RAM, they have a good selection on overclockers, see here http://www.overclockers.co.uk/produc...ortby=priceAsc

Good luck with the first time build also
