    Im not being racist (as i am actually of indian desent) but takeaway indian food SUCKS! The only thing which is good is prawn briyani or kebabs, other than that everything you get is SHIT no matter how good the resturant

    you do shit kebabs too mate :roll::laugh::laugh:

    Everyone knows Iranian kebabs are the best!!! There here in tottenham they are mostly turkish. but brother let me tell you theres a iranian kebab place around the southall area and my god you can literally taste the difference in what they make!!! Doesnt matter if its kofte or straight on donner and chips just looking alone would mean the staff would have to come out and scrape your tongue off the window.

    I've never had the place's takeaway, just eaten in it, it's one of those places that's a restaurant and a takeaway in one.

    But considering I live about 30 seconds away in walking distance I don't see the food changing too much by the time it gets to my house.

    is it a problem with takeaway specifically or do you just not like Indian food?

    I AM indian lol!

    I like indian food, but i really dont like the way they make 'indian' food in takeaways. Most of the 'Indian Resturant' owners are actually Bangladeshi.... They are are SUPER cheap and hence why most of their stuff is crap IMO, the only thing they cannot mess up is kebabs...

    Im sure some of the chinese members will have experianced a similar thing with their food :)


    If you are having lahore style food, eat all the dry stuff, kebabs and such, if you want a dish with some sauce order a butter chicken or maybe even a saag paneer/lamb/chicken. I end up getting sick if i eat any deep fried stuff...

    Yes, I have experience with "chinese" food, you dont add soy sauce on everything and pass them off as chinese food =.="

    How loud is your rig? Depending on how loud it is you could look into making quieter.

    No need as I get 60fps in everything I play aside from metro and even that plays on ultra with 4xaa 16xaf at 35+ fps

    Also not a big fan of multi GPU, been there and done that with HD 4850's/5770's etc and would rather have a single high end card instead of 2 mid range cards for the same performance, OH not to mention I willingly chose a single pci-e x16 motherboard for the aforementioned reasons

    Might retire my old 500Gb drives and grab a 2Tb one, though am a little concerned with giving up 2 drives for a single point of failure...

    Noise isn't really an issue, though I guess an Gelid Icy Vision for my 570 would be nice or even an Zalman VF3000F

    have you thought about going for one of those set-ups where you have the 3 screens all showing the same picture at the same time (whatever Nvidia's equivalent of eyefinity is)

    EDIT:Nvidia surround is what it's called apparently, they even do a 3d version of it

    Would love a multi monitor setup, I just don't have the desk space as my pc is housed under a corner workstation and it would barely hold 2 19" monitors let alone 3 24", maybe I need to tell the mrs am having a new desk and 2 extra monitors lol, only trouble is she would be able to see what I am doing then as my desk would be along the wall as opposed to in a corner lol

    Since you mention hard drives you could raid 2x1tb drives, i think this would work well with your SSD also has the benefit of redundancy. You could swap out the Noctua for watercooling kit like the Corsairs but that isn't needed either.

    How is your sound set up, keyboard and mouse? Those are some things you could try to improve. Even getting a decent mouse pad works wonders. You could get a mechanical keyboard in that case i recommend something with Cherry MX Brown switches.

    I cant really see anything that could benefit from an upgrade, you have everything even a top line monitor and soundcard!

    Does £25 for a second hand pair of these seem fair?
