    I speak of the 3XS Radius. Is it a good bundle for high intensity gaming/computer modelling?

    Seems perfectly fine and they'll overclock it for you and comes with warranty with the overclock.

    What else are you looking to get with it?
    Because it doesn't come with case, power supply or a graphics card.

    I'm thinking of getting this case and the 600W corsair power supply found in the options

    Though not sure what graphics card to get, is the GTX 680 worth it over the GTX 570 considering the almost double price tag?

    Case seems good, with plenty of fan space and comes with 3 fans in good positions. You'll need the airflow if your going to get an overclocked bundle.

    I would push higher than a 600 watt power supply, for some headroom, plus did you look at the other i5 bundle, about 30 pounds more, but with a better motherboard.

    Well I wouldn't be too sure, as it depends on what your doing entirely......the option everyone is going for these days is the gtx670 from Gigabyte which is about £330, prices fluctuate but it's much better than it's predecessor, and can easily be overclocked to gtx 680 standards

    Am I missing something or do the bundles cost £100 more than the parts separately?

    Did you include the vat?
    And the overclocking charge?

    Is vat not included in those prices (listed right above the bundle price) - and it says there's no charge for overclocking (why should there be? )

    It's £362 without vat...............there probably is, just through slight excess price for the components
