Thanks for all the well-wishes. I'll be updating this thread as and when there are new developments. I've added the "shopping list" so far. No more work on the machine tonight as my wife is working nights and I don't want to wake her (plus I'm knackered so doing quieter things like trying to get an operating system on to the PC I bought from ebay!).
*Edit* Arrrghhh... Just realised that you must only be able to 'edit' posts/topics for a certain amount of time after posting. I was intending on editing the main post with updates but will have to 'reply' to my own topic instead....
I thought that posting a parts list would be a good idea to let people know what kit I'm using in the build. This parts list has been comprised of information I've gleaned from the helpful members of this forum and other related forums (desertislandfruits etc).
The list below shows item, vendor, amount and total price-ish (obviously shop around for stuff. The PC I got didn't come with an Operating System installed but I've already got a spare license for Windows 7 from an old machine so I'm using that).
