ahh right thats ok then.

Nice system. Can I be your brother? lol. I would get a power supply with more watts than 550. But thats me. You can never have too much watts.

Nah a 550w corsair has similar amps on the 12v rail as most 600-700w PSUs.

Go for the G92 (512mb) GTS IMO.

A better cooler choice would be the OCZ vendetta 2 if you can find one.

i would consider ditching the e8500 and go with the e8400. it is significantly less expensive, and for what you would have payed, you could save it for a rainy day. i dont know about the UK, but in the US, it is almost $100 dollars more, just for a measly 160mhz.
