Wouldn't it be a bit odd if your Windows 7 key remained active beyond the 30 day period? Then you could upgrade a Win7 machine to 10, gaining a new valid Windows 10 key, then just install your old 7...

I think I'll have a go at updating my Linx 7 tonight - I actually rarely use the thing these days, but fancy a test run at Windows 10 before I think about installing it on my desktop.

Q9550s seem to be about 40 on ebay, and Q6600s are about half that. Both would give an ageing s775 system a bit of a shot in the arm, but I can't help but feel that there comes a time when throwing...

That's really tough, Gareth. If it's any consolation to you, a friend of mine was recently reunited with their lost cat, a full two years after it went missing. It had only wandered about half a mile...

Great stuff. Thanks for confirming that it works - much cheaper than anywhere else I've seen it on sale, and if the cash goes direct to BigAnt then so much the better.

Where did you get it for 14? Was it direct from BigAnt's website? I saw that they were selling it for $30AUS (so about 14.40) but wasn't sure if a Steam key from Australia would work with a UK...

I don't think it'll make much difference - they just add a bit of rigidity and help a little with cooling, but AFAIK their primary purpose is to look cool :D

It's not that nVidia don't do it, it's just that AMD seem to be doing a lot of it just now... and what the GPU industry needs is new stuff from AMD, not yet another rebrand.
