    Right guys, I'm gonna order the parts for my rig very soon - by a stroke of luck, Scan has put almost everything I need on the today-only page! :clap:

    Just want it checked over before I pull the trigger:
    • Silverstone FT03
    • Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 600W
    • Core i5 2500K
    • Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus
    • Asus P8P67-M
    • Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600Mhz
    • KFA2 GTX 560 Ti EX OC
    • Samsung F3 1TB

    I'm also looking for a combined TV/monitor to go with this, and am currently looking at the Samsung XL2270HD. Is that fine, or is there any other model I should look at for around £200?

    That looks totally fine. No issues that I can see anywhere ^^.

    looks sweet. Might be worth getting the PRO version if you ever want SLI. Can't comment about the T.V though.
    Would the Antec true power 650 not be a better buy at that price?

    I don't think I'll ever want to SLI - by the time I want to upgrade, we'll be on the next-generation of cards, or even the next-next-generation! :thumb:

    I was going to go for the Antec, but the Coolermaster is only £6 more in the sale, 80 Plus Gold certified and I quite like the gold on black design. :)

    Just be aware of the current Sandy bridge issues - be willing to replace your motherboard in a few months or use just SATA channels 0 / 1 or use an add-in SATA card.

    Seasonic X or Corsair AX are few steps above your PSU; not that there is any big difference. :)

    LG W2353V-PF is a nice and truly affordable monitor.
    LG W2442PA

    Samsung 2494HM

    @oasked: I already know about the SB chipset issue, and will probably claim my replacement in April/May.

    @Synalar: I'm actually looking for a good TV that can also act as a decent monitor.

    @Sludge: Gigabyte don't have any microATX boards.

    EDIT: Ordered it, decided to get the Pro after all. And I got the Samsung XL2270HD from Electrical 123 for just £190.99 + free delivery :)
