    No way yours is costing you only £360 brand new. :p

    950 is pretty much the same price as i7 Sandy on most etailer. Pretty stupid I must say.

    Well actually, it did and it didn't... and it did... You see, me and my PC live in our quantum world where anything could happen. ;)

    ARGH! I hate being a greedy hardware addict. I'd love to be able to hit 4GHz with my Q9550 but it just isn't going to happen. I might be really sneaky and get myself one of these...

    The 5870 is sold, so i need to order a card today, for tomorrow.

    6950 is a good one. The GTX480 is £190 till 1pm on Scan, then there's some new deals.

    Is it a wise idea or not to sell my 860 rig and go to sandybridge, I couldn't afford the 2600, so 2500k it will be (no HT) is it still going to be a worthwhile upgrade?

    IMO no, you are pretty much paying for nearly 0 gain. You need new CPU, mobo which is not really cheap.

    I heard Amazon's Visa card is good

    You just got your 860 a few months ago (or even less than that), and its still extremely powerful. No point upgrading if you cannot notice the difference =.="

    the problem with current high end 6xxx series AMD cards (anything above a 6870) is they take more of a hit when AA is cranked up compared to Nvidia current line up.

    But i suppose all it takes is a few driver tweaks to iron that problem out
