    DVD are 4.7 GB each and a dual layered dvd can do even more. You probably need a 8GB+ USB.

    You can use any unmodified ISO file, then instead of using a crack, pay to have it registered on the net.

    Not much really to change the mid-range with, though it did influence me to put in a better case, thanks.

    [URL="http://www.scan.co.uk/savedbasket/7d73ed1360b249ea9b21abc630decf4b"]Here[/URL] it is. The mobo could easily be switched out for a P67, but that Z68 is cheaper than the P67s on Scan.

    Awesome aside from the lack of a Win 7 Disk which will unfortunately push it over budget :/

    Thanks though.

    If you want you can tweak it a bit and get it under 700 pounds, and make it list forum. Then it will be added.

    CPU Cooler added and OS changed out before hand (I win ), Motherboard I don't think really needs to be changed out, a quick over view shows that the only difference mainly is SLI support.

    Thanks.

    Remember if you're getting an aftermarket cooler go for the OEM CPU.
