    it will work together but i would expect more from a £900 budget for that kind of money you want to be looking at i5 and maybe i7 as that would be better choice

    also that psu sounds dodgey and i would build your own computer and wait for fermi to come out. and 8gb overkill unless you do lots video editing

    yup, for that money, it should be i7 even, and what generic 4U Rack Mount case is it?

    Have a look at my suggested spec's my budget is £850 so you could add a bit more power to your machine. Here, mainly page 4 and Here.
