    Many thanks everyone.

    I've decided to go with the following configuration:

    That works out to £795.07. I know it's over my initial budget, but I did not want to compromise.

    Many thanks for all of your help.

    I'll be finalising my order before the day is over, and would appreciate any last minute inputs you may have.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Implemented.

    I've also added an internal card reader

    I'd better finish the order before I go further off budget.

    Many thanks everyone for all the help. If any of you live around London, I'd love to treat you to a beer. Post/PM if you're interested.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I think I'll stick with the current one. I kinda like having it built in. I also really like the ability to read M2 sticks without an adaptor.

    EDIT: Apparently, I'm eligible for free delivery on scan, so that brings the total back down to below 800. Yay! (793.85)

    Ok people, I've assembled this, but it isn't working.

    The fans (including 2 on case + psu + gfx card + titan) all run fine, but nothing appears on the screen. Could this be because I'm using a DVI->VGA convertor? (It came with the Gfx card)

    Any suggestions? I'm at my wits end.
