    I have an GA-890GPA-UD3H and an x2 which unlocked to an x4 that I used on that very board before I upgraded to my sandybridge setup, interested? I can do both together for £110, let me know. The chip easily clocks to 4Ghz and above on the board with reasonable cooling and the NB will hit 2800+.
    I can even chuck in an HD 5770 as well for a total of £160.

    I have good heatware and have sold and bought various items on here only.

    I tried the beta when it was out and it ran fine on high @ 1680x1050, baring in mind that the full game has now brought higher image quality as I understand it. Just PM me bud and we can get it all sorted soon as :)
