Hi All,

Ive just been made redundant from my job (11 years service). So I got a decent payout, (I was on 3 months notice too).. and I'm not shy to say my salary was above average.

So I decided to refresh my aging FX55 rig with the following

EVGA nForce 680 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
Thermaltake Big Typhoon 4 in 1 Heatpipe
CoolerMaster Stacker 830 - Black Trim (No PSU)
Enermax 850W Galaxy PSU
Intel 6700 Core 2 Duo CPU
XFX 8800GTX PCI-Express Video card
OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) PC2-8500 1066MHz SLI-Ready Edition Dual Channel DDR2

Just waiting for CityLink to appear at my doorstep to start building this

Will post pictures if anyone is interested.


<oh, and I might have time to find a new job admist all the excitement.>

sweet bro, I'm torn between waiting or buying a E6600. I could wait... but then if I bought it I'd need a new mobo and a new PSU at least... then I'd probably throw all my money out and get new memory as well:lol:

oh man... its that time of the year again...

Nice new rig though!!
