    Well had to make a few changes to my line up , firstly overclockers (my local place) does not take paypal without a verefied bank so screw them.

    I bought my new case already:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/130872997332

    Its black , no windows or flashing lights , fine by me.

    I highly recommend Corsair's cases. I am using a white Corsair 600t graphite case. All Corsair cases are super sturdy inside and they make sure here are no sharp edges.

    Those have been discontinued in a few places I looked...

    I am thinking about one of these:


    Gigabyte GeForce GTX670 Graphics Card(2GB GDDR5, PCI-E) , recommended by friend..

    that's more expensive, if budget is not a worry, then go for it, if not maybe a 560 c:

    I have one 2GB PNY GTX670 card. I can run anything on max graphics. If you're looking for some good deals on brand new parts check out HardOCP forums
