    I would maybe consider a 470 OC for 179.99 or a 570 for 257.99 here,....

    http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials...wcm9kdWN0c1BlclBhZ2U9MTAmcF9zdHlsZT1kZXRhaWwm

    or a nice 6870 graded (still with 1 years warranty) for 149.99 here.......

    I get free delivery at Scan, not Aria, so i'd rather buy there, unless...

    Also, I've owned a GTX470, i want something nice and new.

    I got it like 2 weeks ago :roll:

    Yes but if I can upgrade without paying towards it ? only thing is I might have to sacrifice 4gb ram, a smaller SSD (60gb vs90gb) and storm scout case opposed to my sniper. Again I think I can do this without paying anything towards the build and might even be able to go HD 6850 crossifre

    What about a new GTX560? My friend is selling his for £170 I think. He's only ever on OcUK forums & he's put it up on there but I'll ask if he still has it.

    *taps nose*

    It works out £3 cheaper for me to buy a 570 from Scan.

    @Innocent, if it's reference and he can post today, i'm interested.

    Becomes much harder to choose, but I would not downgrade on case. the rest I can swallow.

    Listen to your AdviceDog and get a Mac ;) Seriously, don't bother getting a new graphics card yet, unless you want to sell your current one.

    Hmm.. take it he can't post today then.

    Looking at it, the 560 and 480 are the same price, yet the 480 is 18% (IIRC) better... hmm

    But 480 is louder and hotter, if you care about that.

    I've ordered the GTX570 :)

    Also, still no word for 'watercooled'.

    Anyone want this PS3 for cheap. I've read of them working if you reseat the TIM. If he doesn't reply i'll either try myself or sell it on for damn cheap.

    Also, triple post = pure win

    One question, if you goes from non RAID to RAID 0, do you need to reinstall Windows?
