Fats mate - when did you pick up the TJ07? I seriously approve :)

I think I will move to the E8600 only if I have the money - no idea how much the Q6700 is worth these days

I got the TJ07 quite a while ago, maybe a month, and I mainly got it coza how impressed you were with it. I love it a lot, it's huge, it's sexy, and I put two green cathodes in with my 8800GT which simply looked awesome. Tomorrow my HD 4870 will arrive, as well as 2 new cathodes, red to suit the card. I'll take pics for you all to see :-)

I also ordered a WD 640GB, and an XBOX wireless controller for PC :D Devil May Cry and other 3rd person game goodness, here I come!

P45 DFI lanparty
E8600
GTX280 with Dtek waterblock

you could always get an e8500/8400/8600 and use it for weekend benching :D and use your quad for everyday stuff.

money is short right now so I can't afford to have 2 cpus.

Also, was looking at the 780i - it seems to be fairly problem free and a mate of mine who has one has been happy with it from day one. It would save a lot of hassle as I could just stick with my current graphics cards (which I am happy with) as opposed to losing out by selling and rebuying.

If I move to 780i then I still need to decide to keep the Q6700 or move to E8600 (probably latter), will obviously keep my current graphics cards (might look at a third later, they are so cheap right now!), and get a 2x2gb kit of ram. Any suggestions?

thanks for the help guys

Im thinking something like this dude: http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/81366/MEMORY_DDR-2_RAM/Corsair/TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF.asp

but get it from someplace cheaper, oh yeah and they also have some other RAM there that is optimized for the 680i chipset... not sure if that still applies for the 780i. But I prefer Corsair, guaranteed quality. Plus they go to great lengths to ensure there reliability, and durability.

it's funny you know - I've had a few problems with corsair high end stuff in the past - not enough to turn me away but enough to make me think twice. I had the dominator 10000 stuff and it was hard work to get it running at stock frequencies, let alone something above them.

I've added it to the list to think about it though, cheers

once the upgrade wheels start turning I'll probably reignite MarxLand with a no-spam rule so the mods can't kill it.

Came across this link which may be of interest to you if your trying to get 4.5ghz on an e8600:

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=174821

Talks about extremely quick degradation of the cpu's running at high speeds (say ~4.2-4.3ghz / 1.4v).

Not sure how widespread this is if it's an issue.

You know how I was going to go upgrade my case? From the CM 533 Ammo, (Yes FB, you know the one) because it was too difficult to manage cables. Guess what? I did it! http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa256/c0nc0n3m0/DSC03437.jpg


Anyway, marxy old chap, seeing as you're gonna go one card this time, I think an x38 based P5E is going to do you well. Flash it to Rampage Formula, you'll be mega win.

780i is prone to running hot unless you have plans to watercool the NB? also have you considered getting say a second hand 30inch lcd? that would make full use of that card and be the deffinition of gaming nirvana at the same time :D

I built and tested a 3-SLI GTX280 system based on a 30inch a few weeks ago and it was the first time I had used such a screen. I decided that I didn't particularly like it as you have to sit 2-3 feet away from it which is kind of annoying.

I quite like my 24, maybe one day I'll look at a second 24 or perhaps a 27?

Just waiting for this GTX280 guy to respond...
