My System Specs


Ok.. Elara is €100 more expensive than scan (not inc del) for JUST the processor, motherboard and graphics (3570k, Asus P8Z77 Pro and Gigabyte GTX670)

Go to scan or overclockers and you'll get loads more for your money.

Intel Core i5 3570K,1155, Ivy Bridge, Quad Core, 3.4GHz, 5 GT/s DMI, 650MHz GPU, 6MB Smart Cache, 34x Ratio, 77W, OEM £171.80
Asus P8Z77-V PRO, Intel Z77, S 1155, DDR3, SATA III - 6Gb/s, D-Sub (VGA)/ DisplayPort/ DVI-I/ HDMI, ATX £150.92
2GB MSI GTX 670 Overclocked, 28nm, PCIe 3.0 (x16), 6008MHz GDDR5, GPU 965MHz, Boost 1045MHz, Cores 1344, 2xDVI, DP, HDMI £293.60
8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Arctic White, PC3-12800 (1600), Non-ECC, CAS 9-9-9-24, 1.35V£42.96
256GB OCZ Vertex 4, 2.5" SSD, SATA 6Gb/s, Indilinx Everest 2, MLC-Flash, Read 560MB/s, Write 510MB/s, 120k IOPS Max. £172.94
2TB Seagate ST2000DM001 Barracuda 7200.14 SATA 3 6GB/s 7200rpm 64MB Cache 8ms OEM NCQ £79.91
650W Corsair Enthusiast Series 650TXV2UK, 85% Eff', 80 PLUS Bronze, SLI/CrossFire, EPS 12V, Quiet Fan, ATX v2.31, PSU £70.38
Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl, USB 3.0, 140mm Fans, Low Noise Mid Case £89.81
Noctua NH-D14-2011 Dual Radiator Cooler with PWM fans, LGA2011 Only£66.29

Net Total Carriage VAT
£948.85 £8.49 £191.46
Total£1,148.80 (€1464) (not inc Del to Ireland.. About another £10 - £20) (prices from Scan, not sure of their delivery but about the same price and def deliver to R.O.I)

(Change the case to whatever style you like around the same price and can't go wrong with Fractal, Corsair, Bitfnex or Coolermaster for mid range mid towers)
I haven't spent the time to look at the daily or weekly deals but your still saving and have a kick ass machine for that..
General rule of thumb for buying computer parts is don't buy local... UK or US are always going to be cheaper.. If you knew anyone going to US or Canada then I would be tempted to give them the money to buy and send/bring back your bits (less the case)
