Looks good (except the motherboard), and it will work.

I am not thrilled too much about the motherboard. It won't run x16, x16 in SLI mode. I'd either recomment this eVGA 750i board or a full-blown 780i board...

If you need to cut costs to afford that board, the case, CPU, and cooler are the places to cut those costs. An E8400 saves you $20, and actually overclocks better (better gaming performance!), and this Xigmatek cooler saves another $10 or so.

Scan has them on pre-order:
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=801000

And I'd take the MSI over the Asus...

I'd contact scan to see when they expect them
