check overclockers uk... they also have a very big forum

Overclockers can be more expensive although their forum is very helpful on guidance about a purchase.

When you have decided what to buy I suggestyou post hereand then members can comment...and maybe give advice on where they are cheapest and if thereis anything better than what you propose.

Well you would probably gain from buying from one place and avoid seperate postage costs...have a look at ]microdirect.co.uk where you'll get 3% quidco cashback.

Just compaerd it to ebuyer saving 10quid lol not as good as i thought will keep looking.

another retailer is [url]www.cclonline.co.uk[/url] but no quidco...on a £400 order this can amount to £12 so has to be built into the equation.

Hi Zanic

You might like to look into going down the AM2 socket route as this is newer technology and probably more 'future proof' if there is such a thing in the world of IT

for gfx cards i would get the X1950 PRO

roughly the same price as a 7900gs but alot more power

you really should consider AM2 as sly says. IT's future proof (if that's ever possible). 939 and co are on the way out. If you could perhaps spread over two months and pay a bit more, you should go for conroe. They overclock soooo good.

Check out ]ARIA

and visit Lucy's lair at ]Lucy's lair

for impartial advice

Yes I agree AM2 is a must..as others say 939 will be history...and AM2 is designed to make DDR2 ram function as it is designed.

I would think a X1950 pro will be far more expensive..I will have a look.

dabs.com/Pro…h=1

yes I see the X1950 pro is cheaper....it would be prudent to read any reviews that are available on the web.

this is the mobo I'd go for...more expensive but Asus are the best in my opinion.

How to use quidco? I have an accout but never used before. Thinking of going down the AM2 route now after all great advice......But costing 740 at the moment

Using Quidco is simple...but take my advice ..use a different web browser for your quidco transactions...I have downloaded Opera and set the home page as ]quidco.com ...this ensures that your quidco transactions track correctly..because if they don't you'll have the hassle of setting up enquiries and quite often if the enquiry is successful you lose 50% of the cashback.

Opera can be downloaded from this link
]http//ww…tml

You simply put in a search on the quidco site, after you have logged in your username and password, and then using the quidco link go to the site and make the purchase.

Tracking times vary but most will show in your Quidco earnings section within 24 hours.

If you are buying your memory from crucial you may want to seek advice as I'm not really sure how you get the additional 5% discount using Quidco...someone oon here will know.

happy shopping...bet you can't wait to get your new zippy PC up and running....from the components you intend buying it wil be a belter!
