I've got a bit more time, hopefully I can make my mind up before ordering the parts.
You are on a budget I will assume. See if you like this case coupled with this PSU!

Its got a 430watt Thermaltake PSU in it. But I would recommend a larger PSU.

Here is a GREAT one for an AWESOME price. I use the level above this, the 620watt. This is more then enough for what you are doing though!

Ah Thanks alot for your help DB, I am on a 'budget' in a way, I've got around 1000 but i'm cool with going 50-80 over either way, while we're on that topic, as you're experienced with system building here's my lineup:
AMD 64 3500 + venice core
2 x 1GB PC3200 DDR400 RAM
200GB 7,200 RPM Hdd
Can't decide about graphics yet, Don't know if i should wait for ATI crossfire, get SLi or just get a single graphics card mobo, I'm looking at the 6800 ultra or the x850xt for the card either way.
While your here, Whats your opinion?

Get a 7800GTX man, a single one will do just fine. They have dropped in price to almost 500$ even. That is like 285 quid.

SLi??? Wow.. that will break your budget by quite a bit! Dual 7800GTXs is EXPENSIVE. You can of course, get ONE now, and then ANOTHER later though!

Hey lol that's what I meant, I'll get an SLi chipset but just one 7800 GTX for now.
Ok LAST question, out of this list of cards which is the best cause even though they're all 7800's they're different makes.

EDIT: If your still on ebuyer i dont suppose you could find a good power supply to go with this motherboard http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=82818
