    Having solid PSU, cooling and graphics power, £600 is a good price point without monitor I would say. As said before Sandybridge is just too cheap to complete with a older system.

    700-800ish unforunately with the amount of upgrades on it that pushes the price up - but keep in mind that around the same price range as some of SCANs own prebuilts so you will be competing with their range and their tech is newer.

    youve put so much money into it, to make a sale youd have to sell it at a significant loss unless you take some of the parts off like 4Gb ram instead of 8Gb and the SSD. otherwise it just wouldnt be worth it

    Woo profit! :toast:

    I'll stick a "AWESOME" sticker on the side of the PSU to increase it's value.
    ( hey if it works for companies)

    and what do you use??? Norton?! nty.

    Ive tried Norton 2011 and Avast v5 & v6. Avast was actually pretty good except it slowed down my connection and gave me shit higher latency in games. when i googled it, it turned out to be web shield that was slowing everything down, but even when i disabled it. I still suffered from Micro lag every 10-30 seconds - my net speed did go back up though. but Micro-lag is bad so it had to go

    It is, it's Kaspersky. We supply it at work when customers request it. We try to tell them not to use it but they're arrogance & ignorance is outstanding.

    I hate Symantec home products; they're all shit! Avast I haven't used and now I don't use any AV, I only use Malwarebytes to scan if I think something is a miss. Eset NOD32 was the best AV I've ever paid for. I've only ever had one major virus infection and that was on my old P166MMX rig.

    Doesn't mean he's not lacking due diligence when browsing online. Just because you have an AV doesn't mean you're going to be 100% protected. NOD32 has the fastest response to the Internet viral database so he must be doing something wrong.

    Hmmm... shouldn't limit the functionality of it though. I dunno, I don't use any AV anymore.

    I surfed the net or about 9 months without an AV, and I had someone who "knows the lot" tell me "you're stupid! I'll put money on you being infected!"

    I should have took that bet.

    Nah - I live by Kaspersky. they have served me well for many years. and they are by far better then Norton. I feel homesick when i use a different firewall/AV package

    nope, no issues Using KIS or KAV

    They are fine, for the price i get a 5 user lisence it is the best protection money can buy, I dont download heavy PRONZ or what ever but for moderate/heavy browsing it is the best for me, i find NOD32 and other shit very unreliable and prone to lots infections, Kaspersky has never let me down to date. I do agree in recent years it has slightly bloated but the 2011 package has beaten anything i have thrown at it over the last 3-4 years

    I really wonder what you recomend as an alternative, but what ever it is, I can assure you it will be far more expensive :)

    I use free AVG for antivirus and free Commodo for firewall, all I can say is that in the 3 years I have used it I have never contracted any nasty disease :cool:
