    That will cover the postage of the PSU at least :laugh: It's only a budget one, albeit it's decent and stable, I used it for about 3 months only and it was fine at the time until I upgraded when I changed it a couple of years back, I think it's 30A but thats continous not peak (which is good), I think it's called a Sansun Black edition 600W, I only kept it as a backup for mine should my Thermaltake blow although I would probably need to run my system completly at stock on the Sansun.

    Just a heads up guys. I'm selling my -

    1090T with the stock cooler &
    my 460 GTX Super Overclock as from tomorrow.

    Downgrading as I'm in need of cash so expect reasonable prices. The 1090T has a mark/scratch on top of it but is not affected by it at all. Currently overclocked to 4ghz@1.42v and loads at about 54c on my A70 cooler so could easily be pushed more on a better setup.

    EDIT - Due to Moonpig's aggressive pricing on his cards. Thanks :) I'm willing to sell my GTX 460 1GB Super Overclock to any UK Clubhouse members @ £95 posted!!

    hi guys, been a while since i was here,
    on duty tonight,
    my shar-pei bitch has just had a litter of pups, so for the next week, the missus and i have to sit up over night, just to make sure they are all feeding and mum doesn't lay on them.

    major downer, i was hoping to be able to upgrade my pc, but the bitch had to have a c-section, and it was £400 :cry::cry: so i may wait a while now, or until i sell them ;)

    edit, just noticed i am not on list.
    so tatty, join me up when you get back

    Depends what you want to upgrade - any graphics card above a 5770 would be pretty pointless as your 3Ghz Q6600 is a bottleneck, not to mention your 19" monitor

    Id go to his house - beat him up and take his rig. the Q6600 even though its old - still has so much potential. Even cranking it to 3.6 would work wonders for that 5870.

    you should tie him to a chair and give him the 'Overclocking 101' lecture from top to bottom and break the bad news that speedstep downclocks not overclocks. - tell him to sign up to this forum even. he will learn alot from people on here

    If he uses speedstep do a Ninja OC to the max Speedstep won't crash with. When he's looking at idle computer at low speeds he'll never know. But then when he plays your ninja skills take over :rockout:

    Done it mate. His ears are like lead. He's one of them: he thinks he knows the lot because he's the one in his circle who knows the most, but he doesn't know as much as he thinks he does. He doesn't truly understand hardware like a techie...
    I'll just laugh when he gets a nice new 6990 and wonders why his graphics are no better.

    Great deal! If you still have that 460 next weekend, I'd be more than interested!

    EDIT: Sorry for posting when I'm not yet a member of the Clubhouse; I've PM'd Tatty and am waiting to be added! How I've missed this Clubhouse before I do not know...

    On second thoughts....Id go around to his house for a few drinks. slip acouple of roofies into his then when hes out cold - super glue his hand to his arse. then swap out that 5870/6990 for a 5770. He probably wont know the difference anyway. and in anycase if he does - just photoshop a new reciept from the place he bought it from and he should go with the story.

    and if he wakes up and starts asking questions about his hand is stuck to his butt - tell him you were playing spin the bottle and he accepted it as a dare
