what you guys think? General use and some gaming. budget £1500

Case: NZXT Phantom Black Full Tower Case
Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme6 Intel Z677 (Socket 1155) DDR3
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.40Ghz (Ivy Bridge) Socket LGA1155
Cooler: Xigmatek Prime SD 1484 CPU Cooler with 140mm Fan
RAM: Cosair Vengeance Low Profile 8Gb (2X4Gb) DDR3 (1600Mhz)
PSU: Cosair 850W AX850 Modular PSU
SSD: Samsung 250Gb SSD 840 SATA 6Gb/s Basic
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB SATA 6Gb/s 64 Cache
Optical Drive: Sony AD-5280S-0B SATA DVD Optical Drive


Don't bother with Xigmatek - go with the Noctua NH-U9B instead.

Also the Samsung 840 has got mixed reviews - the Pro is better but it will cost you. Go with an OCZ Vertex 4. Alternately consider the 256 GB ADATA SXG9000.

I didn't see a graphics card listed - the onboard video is not made for gaming - it can only handle basic tasks and that's about it.

Otherwise everything else looks good.
