    i5 750
    Gigabyte P55-UD3/Asus P7P55D
    4GB G. Skill Ripjaw DDR3 1600MHz
    + ATI 5850/5870 when it's released/prices drop

    That's pretty much what I'm looking at as well, and should be around £500, depending entirely on the price of the ATI cards (I'm guessing around £150-£200 for the 5850 and £200-£250 for the 5870).

    Or you could scrap that idea and save some money by getting a GTX 275 or 4890.

    Not sure, possibly.

    It may depend on the specification of the new cards, but it should be able to handle all that and a 4890/GTX275.

    EDIT: only 38 amps on the +12V rail, so it may be cutting it close.
