    Can someone please help me get it down to around £900 so I can buy a case and solid state drive?

    What I require:

    Fast gaming/HD movie editing performance
    Good multitasking performance
    Bluray playback
    Good amount of storage
    Good HD audio with optical output

    Ah thank you muchly! BTW the 550W is enough right? I have no clue, just want to make sure.

    The 550W is more than enough for a single GPU setup. However, if you intend to add a second GTX 460 in future then I would advise you to get the Corsair 650TX instead.
