ok sorry guys i should have clearly pointed out.
IM NOT A GAMER.
the pc will be used for general internet use photo shop, dreamweaver and some light programming,
and also before you start shouting at me saying you dont need a quad core.
i want a pc that will last me a long time my pentium D was old withing 2 months, so i want the quad core to still be able to cut it in a years time hopefully longer,
so take away the 8800 and ill probably jus get the 8600 i mean i was thinking of just using my old 7300 as i say the only reason i buy additional graphics cards is to dual screen, and yes i know the 7300 is a terrible terrible card but i dont game lol.
i bet that £400 budget looks a lil better without a beasty G card doesnt it.
@zkilla i do have a previous computer that i built myself but im gonna turn it into a web server so the only thing i can take out of it is 1 of my DVD RW drives, coz i dont need 2 for a web server.
The rest of the Intel Q9XXX series should be out in early January. I think this counts for the E8XXX too.
Also X48 will be out by then.
is there n e rumours on the price of them i mean ive heard the new quads are going to be extremely expensive,
is there n e thing that will rival the Q6600 in price/performance ratio.
this looks good,
on that website its $330 canadian dollars so lemme conver tthat to uk £168, definately worth considering
