    Time tp upgrade the CPU...

    Im looking for a new CPU.. around £40-£60, AMD..

    im using a Soltek "SL75-FRN-L" Motherboard. with512MB PC2700, no idea of what CPU is the best for the price atm, any suggestions, a JIUHB 1700+ woldve been nice but getting hold of one is a pain I guess.

    Fire Away!

    Missing thumbscrews perhaps?

    cpucity.co.uk is good for CPU's that overclock damn well
    other prices are reasonable and the service is a damn-sight better than OcUK

    THe thing with OcUK was poor service.. I ordered the case and it took over a week for them to send it out, and about 3 phone calls.. I wont be using them again :/

    I'll check cpucity too, I'd heard of it before but couldnt quite remember

    i believe the uber clockers are the 1700 Tbred 2100 Tbred and as previously stated the new barton 2500 cores - theres a site somewhere which lists average overclock based on different cores - ill have a look for a link

    + theres a list of suppliers in the bargain hunt forum

    Never had any problems myself EVER with OcUK although I know Spie and live near to the shop.
    Anyway, Try Dabs if you want good aftersales. Their service is VERY good.
