    say your budget, do you need a monitor? what OS? not a fan of vista for example? and it will be much easier to 'choose' bits for you dood

    Re: Bite the bullet time !!!

    Well I'm not a great fan of the stock cooler, but a scythe mine, acrtic freezer7 Pro or Akasa AK-965 (basically a Acf7p copy) would be fine, esp if no extreem overclocks are involved.
    They'll be fine for running stock speeds or a small overclock.

    The reason Overclockers normally have stuff in earlier than anyone is that they preorder by months. Scan especially only like to take on products that they know once they sell their current batch they can get more when they want it.

    Re: Bite the bullet time !!!

    i wouldnt buy anything else from OCUK if my rig depended on it.
    im actually having trouble finding a nice new case i want one without anything like a window or front door on it but summit that looks sexy without costing the earth.
    is the abit the best for the buck for this new quad? is the asus one any better?

    Antec NSK6000 or Akasa Zen
    Both plane, simple, fuctional, no thrills but no massive price tag.
