Have you already bought everything? If not you would probably want to change the processor to a i5-2500k, it should only be around £20 more but alot better. That cooler is abit of an overkill, you could just run stock on a sandybridge chip no problems.

What are you going to be using the computer for? Gaming? If so choose a better graphics card, the 430 is very low down on the scale, go for a GTX460 at least.

Other than that everything else looks fine, the PSU is a goon un!

What Reef said, 10 - 15 quid more gets you a much better CPU.

Where you buying from?

Thanks guys, it'll probably be from PCspecialist.co.uk, i will be using it for gaming but nothing really big tbh, but yeah somone else told me the liquid cooler was abit overkill. So if i go with the quad core 2500k and increase the graphics card it should work pretty good?

Yeah man, the i5-2500k is one of the best processors on the market. Virtually as good as the much more expensive i7-2600k for gaming.

Just stick with the stock cooler for now, the sandybridge chip aint a hot beast anyway. Definatly get a better graphics card though, a GTX460 is probably the best cheap card on the market and can be picked up for just over £100. Pair a GTX460 with a i5-2500k and your on to a winner :D

Never heard of PC Specialist but just had a look at their site. They don't actually sell parts, only make PC's to order. All well and good I suppose but I wonder if self build works out cheaper?

I also get a sneaking suspicion this may be just a subtle plug for that company, like, you know, spam, but I'm like that.

They been about for a while Flops, think maybe TC got her pc from there a few years back.

I thought the same which is why i went and asked, expecting some random no name cowboy outfit like usual. But they (PC Specialist) are not like that imo.
