I realise overclockers are not liked that much on this forum, please don't focus on that, just opinions on the pc please.

Looks like a very fast PC, i'm jealous lol :thumbsup:

holy mother of mary, that's alot of spec! i hope you are a very hard-core gamer to justify that price tag

get win7 rather than vista so you can see your full RAM at work
edit ye sry 64bit

*64-bit* too

personally i feel you must have more money than sense.
The performance provided by that just is not necessary at the moment for a home user.

Is that not the idea? Buy the best you can afford and you are future proofed and it lasts longer?

I play a lot of games and run four screens, with a lot of video editing.

"personally i feel you must have more money than sense."

I love that quote. Funny how the people with more sense have less money.

Awesome spec........... I'd love to see Crysis on that setup!

Ignore the haters. As you said those with sense have no money

What? Vista and 7 both support 16GB of ram on the home premium version. That computer only has 6GB and isn't likely to exceed the limit any time soon. Obviously, now that the slightly improved seven is out there's no point in buying Vista though.

It's one way of doing it, but you do end up spending more money then buying the current best value system and upgrading more frequently. An £800 computer is going to last at least 3/4 or 2/3 as long as that system.

Agreed but the benefit of the extra performance for that time is surely worth it?

I am trying to justify it to myself also.

I currently have a Q6600, 8gb ram, GTX260 896 Extreme edition.

[FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="SeaGreen"]That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. You need to learn the differences between OS versions and 32/64 bit systems.

Oh and as for overclockers - just ignore the haters, most of them are idiots anyway - they are fine and I've used them for years both online and through the Stoke store.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Don't worry about it, a decent spec is well worth it! Only thing I'd do if I were looking now is get a higher spec single Graphics card, you can always xfire or SLi later and drop the ssd to a smaller size, as for a boot drive 60Gb is plenty.

They also do this one which has a single Nvidia card.

You thought about building one? If not call them up, they'll let you customise what they offer no probs.
#15
Hope your not in a hurry for this as you'll be hard pressed to find a 5870 about at the moment.

I called up to see if there would be any discount and they can have it to me for Friday / Saturday.

Will decide tomorrow.

They wont I assure you. They will request from the suppliers but there is no stock in the uk.

My last computer had a £400, top of the range card and my current one was a £120 Radeon HD 4850 but It's only been a year since I bought that so I can't fully compare both options yet. I am more than happy with the performance of the 4850 on my 1920x1200 screen so far though.

If your monitors are high resolution (i.e. 2560x1600) or you play a lot of games that can use the two screens crossfire allows when turned on (generally strategy games, having a crosshair on the join between screens is nasty) then it may be worth it for the performance, but otherwise I don't think you'll see much difference in most games.

Then why are you upgrading?

That's a dual-GPU card and they apparently suffer most of the same limitations and problems as Crossfire/SLI. As far as I know the 5870 is the fastest single card.

Dual GPU gives a better starting point if he wanted to add another card in a future, it does suffer from some of the same issues but not all. Depends on how much of a tech nut/gamer he is really. I remember when my 4890 was top of the tree :cry:
