Congratulations on your first ever build! The first one is always a monuments moment in a builders life!

The only thing that I can see, judging from your sig, is that you need an after market CPU cooler if you want to do any type of overclocking. Let us know if you need help picking one out.

I hope you mean your first build, not PC...
Anyways congratulations!

Thanks for all the encouragement guys ,

@BONkILLER well technically its my first "PC", I've only had one laptop of my own, used to play rome total war and dawn of war etc... Got orange box on xbox and started really getting into where it came from (PC), Now I've picked up BF2 and 2142 with all expansions for both games (only a tenner) and even on my lil lappy it is great

can't wait to see my PC in action against crysis. I sold my arm and leg for it so I hope i can still play it .
