The rig *may* end up as a HD video editing rig, I went AMD in mine and I think it was the wrong choice; as far as I understood, Intel was the way to go because of something to do with true virtualisation/multi-threading that's needed in a HD video editing rig? I'm not sure, I'll have a little read up in a bit.
1090T + Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 = about the same as:
i7 930 + GA-X58A-UD3R
With the AMD setup we would save some money on the RAM...

I'd be comfy flashing my own card, but I wouldn't trust myself with my mum's! Isn't there a Canadian site that sells 465's pre-unlocked to 470's?
