    Looking good. Get the Samsung Spinpoint instead of Caviar black. If you want to save some money go with the 500W version of the PSU.

    Yeah its out of stock at the moment but wont be getting this till next month so hopefully it should be when I process the order. Yeah I was thinking about going for the 500W but its only an £8 difference so just trying to think ahead

    Change the RAM to some G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 1600 Mhz or maybe CORSAIR XMS 4GB 1600Mhz // CORSAIR Vengeance 4GB 1600Mhz I don't know the site you're using so they might not have one or another.

    (Vengeance should fit with the Hyper 212+ but not 100% certain.)

    Thanks for pointing that out, I actually clicked the wrong RAM, it should be:

    4GB Corsair XMS3 (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit - CMX4GX3M2B1600C9
