Looks like you are looking to spend about £330,
I would be inclined to use www.scan.co.uk, not only are they usually cheaper, they are a great company to deal with, friendly and reliable.

If you went for the setup below, you'd be getting better value for money IMO:

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/intel...-cache-95w-oem

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-...-sata-raid-atx

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/4gb-%...connector-165v (although I have to say those G.Skill Ripjaws on ebuyer are pretty hard to ignore!)

Hope this of some help to you and best of luck with the build!

I second the G.Skills.

Look in my sig for the differences between the boards.

i guess it would just come down to personal preference in the end, both seem to have similar features and would probably OC on par with each other, I would just pick the P8P67 because I have almost always used Asus boards and have never really had any issues with them, and I guess the extra PCI-E slot comes in handy if you decided to go for a crossfire setup in the future and the addition of bluetooth is an added feature over the Asrock.

As for the Ripjaws, they would be a great choice, the only reason I linked you to something different in the first place was to keep all the components coming from the 1 shop, to save paying multiple shipping charges.

thanks for the help guys, i will probably go for the original list all from ebuyer, those gskills are to good a deal to pass up and the motherboard doesn't appear to be missing anything i desperately need

Asrock has never been even close to the quality and OC level of Asus,Gigabyte,Evga etc..

Go for Asus P8P67 Pro motherboard as it will provide you with everything you need (CroosFire/SLI etc)and with GREAT OC capability..

It is more expensive than Asrock but really worth it in the long run..

They are at very top of the OC charts on HWBot (world OC league)..

Motherboard is the body of the computer and you really don't want to make mistake there as it will follow you trough the rest of your build..

GOOD LUCK..

CHEERS..

If I'm not mistaken G.Skill have recently released a 'Ripjaws X' ram which is approved for sandybridge and runs at 1.5V
