    For around £15 more I would go for a 250g SSD rather than the 120g. (">

    Edit: Posted the above after reading your proposed spec on page 1. Didn't notice this thread was 6 pages long and 4 weeks old so my input is probably a bit redundant... Unless of course you haven't bought the SSD yet, in which case disregard this edit to my post. (">

    Why does "fat chance" and "slim chance" mean
    the same thing?

    The H80i cooler can get quite noisy when playing game's and having fitted hundred's of them I would suggest a H110GTX if your case allows it as it has 140mm fan's and a larger radiator which run's along the top of the case which lead's to much better airflow.

    It wont work, new builds never do, they'll always be some bastard part that fucks it up.

    I was actually doing a new build for my son today and completely agree with what Mule says. I was shocked when it turned on first time with absolutely no issue.

    I still keep looking across the room half expecting smoke. It seems too quite too which is unsettling.
