An i7 would be totally unbalanced with that system, and pointless for gaming.

If you want a better CPU, the i5 4690 is the far better choice (and cheaper), but with your board you can't overclock...

Well that's a nothing statement. Probably even worse than Ubi's original efforts, but it does indicate that it is due to fraud.

That's my plan. Did they ever come with the Titan style cooler? Anybody wanting to sell one of them for £150? I think that's fair, I mean they're totally gimped cards that simply aren't worth buying.
