    These chips really do look like a Dad at a nightclub... he's aged well and sure he can dance, but it's yesterday's moves and whilst he's all over the benchmark girls it's only initially impressive... thunder quickly stolen by the young sporty guy who just walked in and his muscular 6-cored mates.

    brilliant comment - Think there should be a 'Best comment of the month section' and this should win for this month.

    Sandybridge i5 2500k seems like the CPU for the money for the next year then. Just mustering enough money for a full upgrade of mobo,CPU & ram is a bit steep still.

    Just one thing though Hexus - why a 3 star review?
    3 stars (out of 5) is pretty good. It should even be a 'recommend' at 60%, because it's better than average.

    Come on! Be better with your figures.
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.
