Alright, I'll stick with the corsair. Consensus on the internet is thats the most reliable PSU manufacturer and I don't want anything getting fried.

On a sidenote, do you know what sort of GHz i could overclock the i5 with without causing any heat issues?

If your into extreme overclocking and crossfire this motherboard might be worth the few £ difference

Its worth a thought for future proofing in regards to the crossfire (i'd have to get a different PSU but i'm not going to worry about that yet.) Why is this motherboard better for 'extreme' overclocking?

Ah, alright. I've read some reviews/comparisons and it looks like both overclock to about 4.9GHz pretty easily and this is more than I would need so the CPU ratio being unlocked isn't really that important. Gonna stick with the Asus I think. Apparently the EFI is easier to use too.
Cheers

Alright. Completed it. Comes to £704.09 including P&P and the usb wi-fi stick. Seems pretty good to me. All sorted. Cheers, thanks a lot.
