I've managed to obtain an i7 920 for a very very minimal cost (£0) Wink

Hopefully when my bonus from work comes in I'll be able to get the mobo, RAM, PSU and GFX card to match Smile

All parts ordered and should be delivered tomorrow.

core i7 920 processor (oc/d to 4gig) with an Akasa venom heatsink
Asus P6X58D-E Intel X58
Corsair XMS3 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz

The only thing I've not picked up is a new GFX card as my trusty 8800GT is still going strong.

Still going to have my old PC which can play nearly anything out there just in case all goes wrong!

I wonder how noisy my room's going to be with an Antec 900 and an Antec 1200 on the go in there!

Well it's built, kind of Smile Decided to drop a bit more cash on a GTX460 (got it pretty cheap) and going to use my 8800 as a Physx GPU. New card should arrive next week.

It's ALIVEEEEEEE, 460 working very nicely. I've taken the 8800 out for now but may put it back in for physx.

I'll be testing it out over the next couple of nights, so may see you on the servers.

ps, if Chatts reads this can you reset my TS password and email / message it to me please Smile
