    Id say around £500-600ish - its not the latest tech but it still performs second to none as a gaming rig. Its a bit hard to price it up due to sandy bridge chips being so bang for buck.

    I actually do think the other Mods do a fine job, and I am not just saying that because I am in the "club" too, we are just all very different, our tolerance levels differ from time to time and some are more likely to react quicker, but I will tell you one thing, you would not beleive some of the crap that comers their way..... really and that can have an effect on people who give up lots of their free time to try and make this community as good as it is, to be fair I probably spend the least time on TPU (about 15-20 hours a week), there are some that almost live here and their dedication is inspiring, notwithstanding the odd mistakes here and there that we all make.

    Having solid PSU, cooling and graphics power, £600 is a good price point without monitor I would say. As said before Sandybridge is just too cheap to complete with a older system.

    700-800ish unforunately with the amount of upgrades on it that pushes the price up - but keep in mind that around the same price range as some of SCANs own prebuilts so you will be competing with their range and their tech is newer.

    youve put so much money into it, to make a sale youd have to sell it at a significant loss unless you take some of the parts off like 4Gb ram instead of 8Gb and the SSD. otherwise it just wouldnt be worth it

    Woo profit! :toast:

    I'll stick a "AWESOME" sticker on the side of the PSU to increase it's value.

    and what do you use??? Norton?! nty.

    Ive tried Norton 2011 and Avast v5 & v6. Avast was actually pretty good except it slowed down my connection and gave me shit higher latency in games. when i googled it, it turned out to be web shield that was slowing everything down, but even when i disabled it. I still suffered from Micro lag every 10-30 seconds - my net speed did go back up though. but Micro-lag is bad so it had to go

    It is, it's Kaspersky. We supply it at work when customers request it. We try to tell them not to use it but they're arrogance & ignorance is outstanding.

    I hate Symantec home products; they're all shit! Avast I haven't used and now I don't use any AV, I only use Malwarebytes to scan if I think something is a miss. Eset NOD32 was the best AV I've ever paid for. I've only ever had one major virus infection and that was on my old P166MMX rig.

    Doesn't mean he's not lacking due diligence when browsing online. Just because you have an AV doesn't mean you're going to be 100% protected. NOD32 has the fastest response to the Internet viral database so he must be doing something wrong.
