Scan have screwed up somewhere. The 2600K is i7 yet it is listed as both i5 AND i7 in the different bundles?! Presumably the cheaper bundle is meant to feature the i5 2500K. Corking price if not! SOmeone should go for it and see if they honour the price with the 2600k bundled!

why dont you go for it?

The only error is in the initial title. Both descriptions state that they're Intel Core i7 2600K Unlocked, Socket 1155, Sandy Bridge, Quad Core, 3.4 GHz.

Both deals seem to be about the standard price for a similarly specced machine though.

fcuk

why dont you go for it?



Wish I could afford to!

I take it all I need to add tho this is a decent graphics card (and monitor, which I have), and I will have a nice, speedy system?

Is this about as fast as it gets at the moment?

I was looking to upgrade my games PC, and this seems a reasonable way to do it.

Put a good cooler on that CPU, increase the multiplier and voila - a 4GHz+ Quad Core with HT.

Custom PC got their test CPU to 4.4GHz before having to change anything other than the multiplier.
Micro Mart managed 4.3GHz before having to change anything other than the multiplier. They bumped up the voltage and had it stable at 4.9GHz after what they claimed was "not bad for half a mornings work".

any cheap laptop with hdmi

Look I don't know much about this but isn't triple channel memory supposed to be in multiples of 3? I normally see 6gb on new systems i've looked at.

It is but these don't use triple channel memory!

Pretty much the fastest CPU money can buy. Probably overkill for most people but yea if you've got the money this would be a good way of doing it. Pair it up with a 6950 to really do it justice! Wouldn't just be a "nice speedy system" it would absolute slaughter any game you through at it, any multi-tasking, any encoding. It would be like **** off a shovel!
Edited by: "Nobull" 24th Jan 2011

so is there any actual saving buying as packaged??

No bull... thanks.

I've been after a new system a few months and still don't know whats what. Think I'll just rely on somewhere like this (Hotukdeals) to point me in the right direction for a good deal and quick questions.

LOL Oh there you go! newer system but back to dual channel! oO. When you said not triple channel I half thought quad channel!

Adding a 2Gb XFX 6950 takes it to £777.58 delivered. This looks a pretty meaty system for the price, and I am half tempted to go for this...

Would I be doing this system an injustice by putting XP Professional on it? I appreciate that it will only see 3.25Gb of the RAM, but I still like XP for gaming over Windows 7

Dual boot is your best option here - Windows XP for gaming and Win7 x64 for regular use. Personally, I prefer Windows7 for gaming these days. It's genuinely a lot faster than XP for the majority of newer games I've played

Decided to go ahead and order this. £551.99 delivered is a nice price, and I will add a 6950 next month...once I get paid.

I added up all of the individual components (on Scan's site), and the bundle was about £58 cheaper than if you bought them all seperately, so quite happy with that.

Looking forward to pushing it to its limits with everything maxed out on FSX and see what it does.

Thanks OP for posting this.
