Need advice on gaming PC - 800 budget

Hi,

First of all, i know there is already a sticky for this, but it's all in dollars and i was hoping i could be advised on what providers are best in the UK.

Also, the voltage used is different in the US, am i right? So i am not sure if i should be getting the same components.

I have 800 to spend, give or take 50, and i don't need a monitor.

This is what i have come up with so far:
Western Digital Caviar RE 250GB 2500YS SATA-II 16MB Cache - OEM - 47
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 "LGA775 Conroe" 2.40GHz (1066FSB) - 148
Samsung SH-183LBEBN 18x18 DVDRW Dual Layer Serial ATA Lightscribe ReWriter (Black) - OEM - 20
Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2-6400C5 TwinX (2x1GB) - 88
EVGA nForce 680i SLi (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard - 176
Antec Nine Hundred Ultimate Gaming Case - 65
EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS SuperClocked 320MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - 211
Corsair HX 620W ATX2.2 Modular SLI Compliant PSU - 103

Total: 850

Thanks for any advice

P.S. Sorry if i've missed anything out....i'm writing this in bed and about to fall asleep.

Yeah Voltage is different, But that won't effect anything, Other than the setting for the PSU. Everything else still stands, About Wattage and Amperage.

All looks good to me, Just wondering about where is the OS ?
