Hi there peoples earlier in the month my long serving DFI motherboard went on up to the great big Fab i the sky leaving me pcless. After much deliberation i have decided to rebuild rather than limp on with an old 775 setup. I have nearly decided on the basis of my system and have got these products in mind. 1) ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Socket AM3+ 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard 2) AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz Socket AM3+ 14MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor 3) Crucial 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Ballistix Tactical Tracer In all comes in at £261.30 ex vat. (will buy through work) £313.56 inc vat. I had set myself a £300 budget for inc vat. If anyone knows of a way to squeeze more performance out of my spondoolage i would be grateful of your suggestions. As always thanks in advance.
