Right piecing together an upgrade for my pc...new case, psu, mobo, cpu, already bought a 4870 1gb, and still need to get some ddr3 ram.

So what do you think of the below, and any suggestions to make?

Remembering its being paired with a XFX 4870 1GB and hopefully 4gb DDR3.

What's the budget on the PC bits?

havent got one per se. But dont want to spend an arm and a leg. So if i had to say a limit id say, ideally £225 including ram. Which so far the PC parts come to £166.89 without the ram.

As already spent £80 on XFX 4870 1gb as well. So tops out at £300 ideally.

Obviously still need to source the ddr3 as well!

I wouldn't pair the 460W CM with a HD4870. a 4850 yes but I reckon a decent 500W would be suited to the job. The problem of 4GB of DDR3 then arises, you'd have to go for 2GB or 3GB and then add some more later...

im running the 4870 on the same PSU right now and its fine, alongside 4gb ddr2, 2xsata hdds, sata dvd-rw, C2D e6600 @2.4ghz, and had no problems with it running. Also youve got no motherboard on that

Well on ebuyer if needs must ill buy 2x2gb which is £67.58 but ideally trying to source some from cex as ive got £24 voucher to spend there.

In your list of parts you have Brunette Treatment Pack (first image)

I am not sure that is totally neccesary for building a PC.:)
