Just want to know if the build is good, how well it will perform with new games, and will i be able to game on high/max settings.

Also is it worth it to email them and ask to add the £9 thermal paste instead of the standard one? I will be gaming long hours so im thinking it might be.

All replies are welcome and appreciated.

Also im thinking of changing the GTX 560 to the 560ti. Is it worth the extra money or will the 560 be fine? I dont mind paying extra if there is a significant difference.

There is a significant difference between the 560 and 560 ti, it would definitely be worth the extra money if you can afford it.

A few things to note about your spec would be that, whilst the Sentry 2 is cool it is unnecessary, and the Titan Fenrir is VERY unnecessary. Not buying these would make no difference to your pc, since you don't need them, and free up your budget a bit more, which you could spend to get a GTX 570.

Other than that it's a nice, cheap spec. Remember to get the Silver warranty for a fiver though!
