    Ah ok maybe i'll go with the 2000 range.

    I've got another build to do now for the mrs. She wants a media/gaming pc so i'll start a new thread.

    Postage. You can get free shipping from Scan. You've got enough posts, don't know how often you contribute, but there's a sticky at the top of each forum. Read that, if you qualify, that's £15 off for you.

    Easy peasy!

    Now in return, your Gaming Bomb 2 case - is it any good? Most importantly, does it keep things quiet?

    Yeah i get bits from Scan all the time using the free postage.

    Yeah the gaming bomb 2 case does well at keeping things quiet. It's also a good case to work on. I like it.

    Dont get the crazy Case, the cooling wont probably be great, especially for when you want one of those tasty DX10 GPUS in there.

    Its a big waste of money IMHO.

    Much better with an AKASA mirage or eclipse.
    And a nice 600w seasonic, should get you to £200.

    That would save you £100 to go towards a DX10 card.

    It's burning a hole in my pocket!!!

    I've gotta sell my current machine to my old man first. He wont have the money until end of the month, so that gives Scan some extra time to get the cpu in stock!
