K well then go with the 920. Its sort of an obvious choice... I can all but guarantee that you wont be disappointed.

Go Core i7 and x58.

The rest seem fine.

Get a i7 920,
Gigabyte Extreme X58,
HD4870X2 or GTX280 (depends if you want ATI or Nvidia)
and 6GB of DDR3 (tripple channel) G.Skill or dominators.

Since you are in the UK check www.scan.co.uk and www.overclockers.co.uk
If you wanna see how well a i7 performs then check my build log later tonight, should have her up and running later

EDIT: Link In Sig, Get tripple channel as the voltage required is lower so you have a lower chance of frying the IMC on the i7.

wow tht-kid, your build certainly looks nice. Ok ive decided to go with the i7-920. Do you guys know of any CPU coolers, possibly with a blue LED on to match the case?

Im not sure which coolers have been released for 1366 but for blue LED's you could replace a fan on the cooler with a blue LED one or get a pair of cold cathodes?
