    I would have had that H60 if it fit in my case!

    I think I will need to get something like that for Ivy Bridge (along with a new case lol)

    use a laptop. or get a cheap one with a AMD E-450, should give you some grunt for gaming but not much - their usually around £200-250. maybe more if its in a netbook/laptop

    no love for BF3???

    tbh Im not entirely that stoked about BF3 as i was about BF2. to me BF2 was just totally amazing.
    dont get me wrong, the game is superior to BF2 in almost every way, but some of the maps + destructable environments just spell disaster on some maps as it promotes camping and bitches that shoot you in the back when you try to move up. Have you seen how small Wake Island is now??? they shrunk the fucking map!

    I find BC2 most excellent though providing you can get a good server, but most of the decent servers i used to frequent at have mostly been taken down so i dont even bother playing that anymore.

    You paid £400?

    It's nothing against the product i wouldn't mind owning it myself, it's just the price that i thought was slightly weird
