£3000 is a lot already. For the graphics card, a single GTX 680 is already good enough for most of the games with every setting in high. Also, you probably need to consider to replace with an aftermarket cooler since it can get pretty hot. The Arctic Accelero twin turbo ii would do the job.

For PSU, 1500w is simply too much. Get the Consair TX650 V2 would be enough already.

The rest is fine for me.

thanks for your input Infinitetech:)
what do you think about the ram is mine good enough or do i need to buy better performance ram?
"you probably need to consider to replace with an aftermarket cooler since it can get pretty hot. The Arctic Accelero twin turbo ii would do the job".
do you mean the cooler for the cpu or gpu?
the case i choose has a ridiculas amount of fans in it already do you really think i should add more?

Revo drive if you need fast boot times and loading

when you say "old RAM and you should get 24 gigs 6 x 4gig sticks Pc 12800 ddr3 1600"
do you mean the OCZ DDR3 PC3-8500 is old or the Corsair Vengeance PC Memory is old or are they both old?
can you give me a link to some ram i would like 4x 8gb sticks please
thanks for the replys

sry, was in a hurry the other day.............I mean that PC 8500 was used in my old MB with 778 socket and now one would use a faster RAM like 12800 or better. Was thinking of another MB when I said 24 gigs RAM..........old and sleepy...........buy 4 x 4 gigs as 4 x 8 is expensive RAM and you should be very fine with 4 x 4 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007611%2050001455%20600006050&IsNodeId=1&name=240-Pin%20DDR3%20SDRAM
