Yes i did look at them as well today, but with so may options and so many suppliers my head is spinning!
i suppose i'm just looking for some reassurance that im not wasting my money building quite an expensive machine when something half the price would do the same job, but pc's are my only vice so i guess its better to spend the money on it rather then cigarettes and alcohol!! ;-)

Overclockers.co.uk seems to have a wider variety with more brands and control over components.

They have 10 or 15 machines that can be custom-configured at the above link.

See what you can do with one of those samples, customizing it the way you want.

Maybe start with this one; you can put a 4790K in it.

I'll take a look, thanks.

The only problem with them is that they only ever seem to show one optical drive as an option, i
Would like a minimum of two.

I'd guess it may be worth a phone call to find out if they can do a second DVD for you.

First, I'd get it configured as you want it, without the second DVD. Then call them or email them and ask re the second DVD.

The advantage of that site is more detail on the components.

I see some good brands---Super Flower PSUs, Prolimatek coolers, etc.

If you like the looks of a particular case from the first link in post 12, start with that model and then custom configure it and report back.

I have that same Corsair power supply in my Server case. It is a great PS. As you probably know it comes with "modular" plugs so you plug in (use) the ones you need and leave out the ones you don't (saves on case clutter).

Also what really impressed me was that I needed an extra SATA cable so I e-mailed Corsair to see if I could buy one, and they send me a complete second cable set for free.
