32 bit is the way forward for AMD - you made a good choice.

The TX750 should be replaced by the Antec TruePower New 750W - it's the same price or cheaper, a better performer and is partially modular.

The G.Skill Eco RAM is pretty awesome.

I don't particularly like the Element V, but then aesthetics are subjective... if you like it, go for it.

Seems good to me.

Edit: well, to be honest, you don't need anywhere near a 750W PSU. You should get the Antec TruePower New 550W or Seasonic S12II 520W, the Phenom II 1055T and then get a GTX 460 instead of the HD5770. At least that's what I'd do.

if your going to run 32bit w7 the 4gb of ram is useless, i'd stick to 3 gigs, as 32bit can only use just over 3gb, also i'd say to drop the 1090t for a 1055t, and use the extra £50 for a nvida 460 Or even with the extra money from the less ram + the left over budget get a 5850

Looks good!

I would honestly recommend 64-bit Windows 7. However, if you only have 32-bit, that is understandable.

For the case, I would save money by getting the Cooler Master CM-690 II Advanced:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=CA-211-CM

If you were to upgrade the video card to a GTX 470/HD 5850, you would be doing your CPU more justice. =) With that said, the HD5770 is an excellent card.

Excellent case for the money.

32 bit Windows on AMD is the sensible thing to do because then your IMC won't limit you with overclocks like they do on 64 bit operating systems.

4gb of ram isn't useable in a 32bit os, so seems overkill? All I was saying if I wasn't so clear

In terms of the case I've always liked the look of the Element V. Though i'll need to take off the red ring at the top of the case and spray paint blue to match the rest of my system. Everything else has a blue glow to it

And 32 V 64 bit, i've always wanted to experiment with 64bit, but i've never been too sure if all my programs/games would work with it. Or if i'd need to download new versions (The Motherboard would allow another 4gb at 2GB a piece so if i ever fancy it, the options there)

Power supply, i've heard a bit about dropping it down. Out of curiosity, what sort of machine would need the higher power outputs? (800-1000W)
The 1055T i'm still hoping that it'll appear in 95w form. The lack of any concrete news is slightly worrying. I though AMD would have been throwing them out quickly

Lastly, thanks for the offer, but i'd rather build it. Its always been my bro's job so i'd like to try this one myself
