I would also go with the LG super multi GSA-4163BAL supports all formats and dvd-ram at x5 speed as well

Awesome specs m8 ...

Don't forget drive cables and case fans, you also don't mention a Heatsink or fan for the CPU.

I would go for the X800XL PCI-E click here

Heatsink and fan normally come with AMD CPU's

i didnt go with ATI as the ultra is more powerful and i will be intending to use SLI when i can afford to buy anougher one or they drop in price.

I looked at the LG but it didnt include and drive cables E.T.C

Does anyone know what cables fans ill need for this case and setup?

lovely specs top end I would say - I am about to build myself a new pc and am looking to do it for less than a half of what you are spending but then I am a poor impoverished pensioner. I do not play games so do not need the cutting edge. I will be looking to go for an amd 939 but stick to 3200 or 3400 to avoid the price premium. Good luck with what you decide. I normally use novatech or dabs.

If this is the same graphics card, you can save quite a few bob here:

My mistake it's not the same graphics card - apparently it's merely superdooper and not Ultra superdooper . :o)
