Ok this is everything I have got listed so far.

Case
PSU
Processor
Mobo
Gfx Card
RAM
Hard-Drive
Sound Card
Internal DVD-ReWriter

Honest to god i dont want to order it all and forget something like a screw/cable. As far as i can see nothing is OEM so should all come with retail kit. Any help will be REALLY appreciated!

I'm afraid your motherboard is incompatable with your RAM.

Its DDR3 only, which is newer, but very expensive right now.

Your best off going for a DDR2 board, as DDR3 has no advantages right now.
Just select DDR2 as the memory while hunting for the max 1333mhz bus speed.

EDIT:

Hmm, it says DDR3 only, but under the list of supported RAM, states 2 and 3 as supported.

So yeah, it sounds okay to me. Sorry for the confusion.

Nice build

Confused me there....but so did the website saying DDR3 only but says ddr2 compatiable, so hoping there is no problem!

Not bad build if i say so myself, espcially for a total of 695.38 inc VAT.

Cheers for going through all the links kage!

Got power hungry now, just wondering if it would be worth getting an extra 2x 1gb ram sticks to put it up to 4gb or is there no need really?

I'd say they'd be no need yet.

If you need it later on, you can always place some in.

hey once more guys, literally about to order but just thought my HDD is oem so what cable would i need to order. Also if someone can have a quick look at my mobo/gfx (links above) would a dvi cable be worth getting or will standard monitor cable be fine. thanks.

[EDIT] nevermind about the HHD questions, decided to order myself a UV blue sata2 cable anyway =]
