Guess Intel changed their naming standard again to confuse everyone.

CPU is one of those parts that I change the least. I will keep my i7 until next platform upgrade.

Drats!! The 950 has gone up in price by 20 pretty much everywhere. Intel aren't silly are they.

Just hope this cash hurries up before they go up even more.

Guess atleast i'll have time to think it through more. Settled on two 460 GTX OC in SLI are the recent benchies and the fact they run cooler & quieter.

Amazing how much this has all changed, the console ports are kinda worrying too. DX9 should be banned.

It would be nice for newer games to make use of the tech leaps, not to be held back by the console market. Even before I decided to get back involved I said that same thing.

That's all. lol

Yes they are, but cost 80 more each.

The two 6870s outperform the 5970 for 60 less.

Impressed by them, even if they are more like the 5850s with new features.
