All that is 355, which is pretty awesome. The SSD will cost another 100ish, as I want a 120GB one. For Windows 7, PS, Lightroom and a couple games with some spare space.
Got a link mate? I'm in the market for a desktop that satisfies my gaming needs ;-)

Best bang for your buck would be to do a bit of research and build one. That's what I am currently doing. Asking around and looking at things to figure it all out. But you can generally build one that will outperform one you would buy for less money.

This is the one you want to go for. Unreal SSD. Have it myself and I just love it.

Overclockers don't charge to build bundles/pc's like big brands like Alienware/Dell etc (which are complete rip offs). They charge a bit for 'overclocking' the bundle for you, and that's it. Cheapest I could find those components WITHOUT overclocking was about 345. So a tenner more to go from 3.30 to 4.40 with a warranty? Money well spent

Luckbox - I'm probably going for this one...

Quid cheaper and much faster write...so yeah, unless there's something I'm missing?

GPU wise I have a 6850 for now, which is probably a 'mid spec' card now, so will probably upgrade in the future, but for now I'm good.

With a quick firmware update the M4 disc reads and writes at 550 MB/s i believe, but the SSD you linked to seemed like great value aswell, with positive reviews. Not that much difference, a SSD is a great buy no matter what.

Will be fun installing it all. I'm the kinda guy, that whenever I open my case up, SOMETHING, goes wrong. Even if it's something stupidly easy (like installing a couple new fans), something happens.

Listen to this man! Especially with Alienware. Their stuff is overpriced like nuts. They don't perform nearly as well as everyone says they do. If you were to take the money you would spend in an Alienware computer and build one with the same amount, it would be above and beyond better in every way except that the case wouldn't look as cool.

I swear every time I go out there's always something going down. Last night I hit up a bar my buddy and I go to all the time. I end up having to get this guy out of this girls face and stand between them while they bicker at one. Best part of this: the girl looks up at me and says "I feel so protected because of you." The guy ended up getting taken by the police and then I finally got home around 3.
