for 850 [no monitor just tower]

and i can safely over clock the cpu on the 920 to 3.8GHz

Good, but expensive, and you don't need all that kit to play even the most demanding games...

nice set up if you have the cash to do it

if you go with it

looking to to overclock make sure the processor is 920 DO stepping looking 3.8Ghz that will involve voltage tweeks you should get 3.5/6 off the bat though

and if you are going to push that far aftermarket cooling would be a good buy fans around £30 or watercooling but thats going to add another £100 at least to the bill

graphics not sure about im an Nvidia man myself but im sure some one else will be able to advise in that dept

sorry should add if you are going to overclock make sure you dont skimp on the ram look at kingston or ocz but read up on it first and make sure your in the know theirs a lot of choice but loads below standard for overclocking

it probably wont come with kingston/OCZ ram [i have had a little read] but i probably wont overclock at the start, but will def want too, kingston was used on one site i used, and ive seen ocz used else where too

i know its expensive, but i know it will last, and its a good motherboard [ive been doing some reading]
