Cheers, just looking around now for best prices and best overclock opportunities.

Nice, once you get all those windows bloatware loaded it won't boot so quick :grin:

Looking forward to your update.

I guess you are doing an OS reinstall?

Also take note for future reference - I have not tried this - but Jason sez you can easily reinstall ROF when doing a system upgrade, without having to DL all the updates. Before you start disassembling your old rig, copy your ROF install folder (mine is 33GB!) onto an external HDD; then when you finish installing your new system, you can just copy ROF back onto your main HDD. Then run ROF.exe, log in and you should be good to go (he says).

Yes, that works, ROF is not registry dependent, but you will need to do a restore on the update screen to grab all the necessary windows files like directx and .net I think.

Well all I can say so far about the chip is that its very fast runs ROF like a dream DCS World is a little better but nothing to write home about but thats just due do bad game engine I think.
Metro is also running very nice tho :grin:
