    Sadly that was before I did the full build - I just fired it all up to make sure everything was working, 'cos you never know with these dodgy dealers on forums

    By the time I finished the actual build I'd turned the heating up a bit, and the CPU was at something like 9 degrees - nowhere near as impressive...

    Re: intel i5 750 vs i7 860 best value at da moment?

    lol, you have a point

    The cooler is a Kama Scythe Mine - a 100mm fan tower cooler. I'm going to be very interested in exactly how far it'll take my lowly X2 3800+, but I'm not going to start 'clocking it yet - the case it's in has very poor airflow so I need to do a bit of work to improve that before I start pushing it (look out for the modding thread ). Obviously I couldn't do a load test from the BIOS but I'll probably stick some numbers up once I've sorted the cases and started the clocking.

    Re: intel i5 750 vs i7 860 best value at da moment?

    Just to reiterate guys, the i5 is the one to go for?

    My Win7 RC is about to expire so I'm going to have to do a fresh install of Windows sooner rather than later. The thing is that I don't want to end up having to do 2 fresh install of Windows, 1 for my current rig now and eventually another for when I finally upgrade. So I might as well kill 2 birds with one stone and up my rig and only do 1 install.

    I've got a GD80 and some good DDR3 ram in the cupboard so I just need to get a CPU. My original plan was to get the i7 860 but prices seem have to increased from £205 to around £225 where was the i5 750 seem to be roughly the same. I also don't want to spend too much right now so the i5 seems to be the better choice. This right?

    Re: intel i5 750 vs i7 860 best value at da moment?

    Go for the i5, arguably the best £: performance of all the quads at the minute!
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
