Entering "MSI10" in the voucher section when purchasing any MSI 280X, 290, 290X will give you 10% off for a limited time at OCUK


Code works for Nvdia cards too i might add... Though all 10% amounts to is free next day shipping which isnt a huge saving... Honestly £9.50 for shipping...

It doesn't, it just applies to code to nothing and gives you the product codes of the cards it does work on below it.

I have obtained a D945GCLF motherboard with an Intel Atom 1.6Ghz (not sure if it's the 512KB or 1MB version (one is dual, the other isn't). It has a Hyperthreading option in the BIOS though (does this mean it's the 2 core 1MB one?) It's got 1GB of DDR 533mhz RAM, and I've got a hold of a 250GB Hitachi HDD from the ones I was giving away. I'm gonna throw it inside my SG08 case as it's spare, just debating what the hell I should even use this machine for! It even supports Win7 32bit (no, I'm not installing Linux on it).

Suggestions?

stick a PCI-Raid card in there and use the random gaff hard drives from where you work and turn it into a nasbox

Valid point, not looking to spend more than a few quid though, maybe change it for a 2GB RAM stick at some point. If I feel frivolous I might throw in a dirt cheap MX100 just to spruce it up, and give it to somebody who needs an office PC.

I've got about 5 or 6 Hitachi boxed up already. Ndmk wanted them but he has replied in months. You're welcome to them for free, just pay postage. I'm out of town until Monday so if you want the 6 I'll post them Monday.

If you were giving advice for a would-be builder, which do you think would be more beneficial? An i5 4590 or an AMD 6300 w/ a 120GB SSD?

This would be for a 1080p gaming rig with an R9 270x, and playing a heavily modded Skyrim, some Civ games, and the Sims 4.

a 7970 or 280x would be better (theyre cheap as chips now) also buying used hardware has its advantages, ie. a 2700k/3770k etc can be had for around £100-150 and mobo around the same.

^^ would beat a 6300/270x and beat a 4590/270x for price and be just as good or better at gaming

Can't afford a crucial mx100 along with an i5? Intel is important for civ v and skyrim, not so much other games. I'd say the 6300 normally but SSDs are just bread and butter for modern day computing!

Sorry dude I had to destroy the rest, summer was the deadline to get the spares gone.

I say would be builder, but I think they may actually be doing it through an online customisation service. Which basically means they lose out on the deals with used hardware as you mentioned, and perhaps slightly inflated prices compared to if they were to build it themselves. Also limits their options, so no Crucial MX100 either. I guess the 6300 & SSD combo would be better in the long run.[/QUOTE][/user]

aah no worries man!

ninjad: why dont you build it for the would be builder?
That had crossed my mind, but probably not going to work out. I'm very busy in the next few months. Also, I think they're based in Ireland, so there's probably added complications of shipping. I don't really want that kind of stress when I'm going to be that busy.

thats too bad, when you purchase (partpicked) and custom made pc's you probably can add up to £100 or more from a limited selection.

Kind of a budget killer but ya got to do what ya got to do... to do what ya got to....

Got a new board and pentium anniversary G3258K arriving today for phase one of the new build, I bought a cheapish Biostar Z97 board in the end, apparently a fantastic overclocker (12 phases! reviewed by Dave back in June and he raved about it) which worked out cheaper than most half decent H97 boards, the Matx case should arrive for the weekend. Plan is to burn the G3258 to death until our new S1150 CPU offerings arrive then pop a new quad in there.

Never trusted Biostar in the past, ever. Didn't even realise Dave reviewed a Biostar board. That being said, it actually looks (and performs) rather well. Colour me surprised.

What do you mean by S1150?

Socket 1150....... Broadwell, possibly just devil's canyon dependant on broadwell performance. Yes I think the Biostars may just surprise you, over the last 3 years or so they have created a big following for reliability and excellent overclocking for really cheap prices...... in my case 70 quid for Z97, I would have gone wit te H97 but thought that as I wont stick with a dual core for more than 3 or 4 months it was a bit short sighted.

I don't mean to be a negative Nancy, but trust me, don't do finance on anything but a house or a car. You'll regret it after the honeymoon period. Nothing wrong with a bog standard i5 system for gaming.

Whoo-ahh there cowboy.....

Ohhh, Nice test bench, only awesome folk buy those :D

Get a Devils Canyon CPU and mobo, save about £500. Also, drop that poseidon turd. You'd be far better off with a custom or water blocked 290X. Or a 780Ti but I'm veering towards recommending folk buy 4GB+ these days. Recommended specs are creeping up and at 1600p or 4k, 3Gb will be an issue.
