My i7 cost me £360 IIRC. New prices are highhh.
You better get some use out of it! I wanna see 6GHz!
No way yours is costing you only £360 brand new.
950 is pretty much the same price as i7 Sandy on most etailer. Pretty stupid I must say.
impossible. Probably 4.6-4.8Ghz at the most (and thats 4.8-4.9 if your extremely lucky)
I get a really good overclock from E8500. It really shifts! Check out my system specs!
Prime95, CPU-Z or it never happened. xD
Well actually, it did and it didn't... and it did... You see, me and my PC live in our quantum world where anything could happen.
I don't care, i wanna see it!
Tatty, If you ever capture an attack chopper from Afganistan. let me know (i see you lurking)
Oh god there's no post count here. I feel like I'm in the twilight zone (cue music).
Thankfully, the Taliban don't have any of them.
We shall leave all the application process to you then
Boys, i need a new card, what do i get?
ARGH! I hate being a greedy hardware addict. I'd love to be able to hit 4GHz with my Q9550 but it just isn't going to happen. I might be really sneaky and get myself one of these...
GTX470 you sold me. I'll swap.
Why not 6950?
The 5870 is sold, so i need to order a card today, for tomorrow.
6950 is a good one. The GTX480 is £190 till 1pm on Scan, then there's some new deals.
Is it a wise idea or not to sell my 860 rig and go to sandybridge, I couldn't afford the 2600, so 2500k it will be (no HT) is it still going to be a worthwhile upgrade?
IMO no, you are pretty much paying for nearly 0 gain. You need new CPU, mobo which is not really cheap.
I heard Amazon's Visa card is good
You just got your 860 a few months ago (or even less than that), and its still extremely powerful. No point upgrading if you cannot notice the difference =.="
I hate you.
nVidia GTX480 - £195
nVidia GTX560 - £196
nVidia GTX570 - £264
ATi HD6850 - £145
ATi HD6870 - £169
ATi HD6950 - £212
ATi HD6970 - £270
What do i gets...
I heard is wasnt very good - unless that isnt the card youre talking about.
*le dice roll*
6950 it is!
6950 and 560 are great cards for their price.
the problem with current high end 6xxx series AMD cards (anything above a 6870) is they take more of a hit when AA is cranked up compared to Nvidia current line up.
But i suppose all it takes is a few driver tweaks to iron that problem out
I'm leaning toward the 560 atm..
Scan ain't updated their Today Only
