    Re: just ordered

    Yeah, one thought - nice PC

    How does that fit alongside the one listed in your profile, out of interest? Presumably you aren't getting rid of the other machine?

    Re: just ordered

    Someone's bound to say you'd've got better value from an AMD system, so it might as well be me

    Seriously though, it looks like a decent set of components. What cpu / mobo / ram did you replace, out of interest (since you've already updated your system to reflect the new stuff.. )
