4x Arctic Cooling F12 120mm Case Fan £4.89 each so £19.54 for 4

1x Xenta All in 1 Internal Card Reader £6.93

1x Seagate 3TB 3.5" Barracuda SATA-III £101.99

1x Kingston 8GB DDR3 1600MHz £29.99

1x Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H Socket 1155 VGA £58.10

1x Antec 620W High Current Gamer PSU £70.26

1x Zotac GTX 650 Ti 2GB GDDR5 Dual DVI £155.50

Good suggestion. The price increase should be minimal, and going from 1333 to 1600 actually nets you a small but noticeable increase in performance with modern CPUs.

Do you really need those four extra fans? Since you're going with a modest video card and a processor that can't be overclocked, spending extra money on cooling might not be needed. Similarly, I think going with a 620 watt power supply is way overdoing it. NVIDIA recommends a 400 watt power supply for their GTX 650 Ti, which I think should be more than enough to power your entire system.

You sure you don't need an optical drive? I occasionally use mine to install old games, and something like this one is both pretty cheap and from what I hear, pretty silent as well.

Extra cooling never hurts, especially when they're only five bucks apiece. The same theory applies to the power supply. I've always been of the mind that a good quality PSU putting out more than you need is never a bad thing. You know it's going to run your system with no problems, and if you want to upgrade the power is already there.

I have one of these and it's great. LG makes surprisingly good quality stuff for the price.

A single 8 GB module costs less than your 2x4 GB. I doubt you'll appreciate the speed differences between single channel and dual, and you're more likely to reuse a larger module in the future.

99 dungeoneering achieved, thanks to everyone that celebrated with me!
