nice spec...if it were me I'd price the components on the web just to see if it was VFM.

Its ok value for money - nothing special, the bill of parts minus the case&psu is under £500 delivered from a retailer such as ebuyer, and a suitable case/psu would cost under £50 so you are paying ~£100 for assembly/delivery.

Personally I'd self build, you generally end up with better warranties (5yr on hdd etc) and you can custom choose every item yourself (for example, I'd get a different graphics card and case/psu to those listed, I'd probably also not bother with the Audigy SE over the on-board sound - get a X-Fi or better if you are going to pay for a soundcard on top of the onboard one).
