    The boxes are either headphone amps or DACs and stuff like that.

    oh oooh thoooose boxes lol I've always used a Tascam USB interface (US-122) so I was blissfully unaware of the term "boxes"!

    If they're USB, and don't run through the sound card then it's obvious why people use them lol if they're just running through your sound card then I agree - what on earth would the point be?

    How does yours run Ra97or? USB?

    Really? you need to get behind the wheel of an XF, I used to have an S Type and trust me, the difference is like driving a tractor in comparision to a Suzuki..... the tractor wins every time!

    Its a class A amp, nothing to do with a dac. I feed signal into it through a modded Essence ST.

    I think that's still a good deal, as long as it works :p Be good for upgrading a customers OEM rig that's only got 2 mobo slots...

    I'd love to drive an XF, the S-Type blew me away but didn't quite have the "pushed back in your seat" effect. I'm just about to have a look at what the Top Gear twats say about the XF and the S. Dunno why, I think driving one has got me interested lol
    I missed out on driving a Bentley the other week :( That would have been nice

    I believe that it sounds good, but I hate ASUS :laugh: You interested in valve amps? My Dad's got loads of valve based equipment, I'm trying to see whether it's worth chucking anything for sale here (none of us can sell on ebay).

    If a tv doesn't have HD freeview i would pass. Those cheap tvs have terrible panels. Full HD pretty much means nothing because HD tv is broadcast in 720p and it most depends on the quality of the panel the black levels and white levels.

    Here's a x4 955 for £58.73. If i was building a cheap system seems decent. Sandybridges might be better but those x4s and x6s still do everything fine.

    EDIT: Here i tried BC2 and its not half bad, its hard to keep up with the veteran players but i think I'll get better. Time Battlefield 3 rolls i will have had some practise. I don't mind dying a lot as long as they are dying a lot too so its kinda even which it seems on BC2.

    Not a fan of valves at all, haven't found a single one that I like. Too much distortion because of their physical limitation.

    the 955 overclocks pretty well too,better than the 965 and 970 for the most part,60 for 4x4ghz seems reasonable as most games dont fully utilise 4 cores yet.

    Valves rock!
    the ouput transformer Will cause distortion at the higher ouput levels due to saturation but the distortion in mid and tops is soo sweet compared to a transistor amp going squared.
    valve bass is the best sound in the world!well next to a lady making nice sounds in your ear :)

    I use near-field reference monitors, can't remember the last time I heard distortion :p

    Since as long as i can remember i have messed around with music, and once it was mastered i would hook it up to a tube amp to see how it rocks when at full chat.
    they are still used in nearly every studio in the world today to add warmth too,digital is too cold!
    of course it doesn't make me right,just stuck in my ways :)
