    I dunno. I've talked to some young jokers from the UK and they didn't know their ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to some of history. They seemed more in tune with American pop culture trash then their own history.......which was an epic shame to me.

    I'm no Yank sir. I'm a confederate from G-ds country.

    Bloody hell what's happened in here *tumbleweed*

    Anyhow, I think I have finally find a way to permanently delete my facebook profile without being tempted to log in again during the 14 day period that FB keeps your account active for until it's permanently deleted as I can never go the whole bloody 14 days :banghead: (that's exactly why the have it, c**ts)

    I created a new random gmail account something like 56769687657a@gmail, then added it to my FB account and set it as primary before removing my old email address from FB. I then changed my FB password to something random and deactivated my account. I also changed the new gmail account password to some random rubbish and then cleared my browser history, deleted FB off my phone.

    So now there is no way that I can log in even if I wanted to as I don't know the email address for the account nor either password :D I am free!!! :toast:

    Wish I could afford the pub, just rewired my rig, I say rewired, I really plugged everything back in and tidied the wires up as none of my drives were connected except for my OS drive from when I was troubleshooting a while ago, also need to replace my PSU as the housing that the lead goes into is hanging out :confused: holding it in place with my sub, pretty sure that was the cause when I ripped everything out of it a while ago to try and figure out why I kept getting random crashes :banghead:

    Just curious, what would a AMD 1090T be worth to one of you guys?

    I'd like an upgrade but not really sure if selling my 1090T would be sufficient enough?

    Hard to say as they look (from a very quick google) to be very inflated price wise at the moment, perhaps because of supply/demand ie: they are no longer made and what ones are on the market are inflated because of lack of supply. I would imagine you could probably realistically get £120-£140 for it? (just shooting in the dark)

    As with any upgrade NEVER expect to sell your current stuff for the cost of a performance upgrade, you will always have to shell out some of your own hard earned, just like I upgraded from a i7 860> i5 2500k and it cost me perhaps £60? I also sold my GTX 570 for £140 and bought my 7950 for £250

    Well that's a little more than I was expecting to be honest although I will take that guesstimate with a pinch of salt until others can clarify on this. would be even better if one of you wanted to buy it from me :p

    See edit, and like I said just from a quick google i can see people trying to way overprice these chips, that might be a good thing for the average joe like you who isn't out to rip someone off and just wants to sell his old stuff at a reasonable price to upgrade (they are being listed on eBay at £200+ WTF??? )

    Your right in your edit... nothing worth while is ever free! £200+ :O I'm sure they was about that price when they got released some years ago, but your right I'm not out to make a profit on this chip, I got it part of deal from MoonPip so yea I'll be happy for it to find a home at a reasonable price.

    Considering PII 965's sell for about £80 I might have been a bit more optimistic about my estimate than I first thought, what chip are you looking to upgrade to? if you can sell your's for 2/3 of your new chip then it's a worthwhile purchase IMO

    I'd like the AMD FX 8350 which costs around £150 so I think I'd be able to sell my 1090T for arounds 2/3, albeit people are wanting.

    That 1090T pricing for used chip sounds a bit generous . Knock it down by 25 quid. Also the 7950 has dropped in price recently so if you look around and get some promotion you may get a new one for 200 quid. At least that what goes for about $300 on this side of the pond.

    The price has dropped it should be available for $185 US or about 130 quid , thatbis if the pound is worth 1.50 US dollars.

    8350 clocks much better though if you are going to overclock either chip. but £120 is indeed a bargain when you see that 3570K is £40 more.

    8320's in most cases hit around 4.5-4.7 and then brick wall. 8350's are capable of 5Ghz+

    I'd even be happy with the 8320 tbh.

    Would any of you be interested in buying or trading for a Corsair H80? It'll be boxed as new considering ebuyer have exchanged it from an RMA.

    Not really thought about aha, but I'd probably say £70 including delivery?

    £70? I've spotted them for around £80 but I've not looked all that recently, but I'd like to think Boss would see it fair as that's pretty much how it worked out when I brought an OCZ PSU from him, which happened to be new from RMA too.
