Oh wow, 3.16 Ghz and a quad, nice one, hey I think that price looks really reasonable actually.
Thanks again Pete, that looks well tasty

Ah, man I don't want to build a new Rig, currently I'm running an Intel core 2 duo, it's tragically insufficient for the work I do, presently I'm just planning on keeping the upgrade to under £1000, if the whole rig has to be upgraded I guess. . . double that?
I'm currently working with.
Intel Core2 duo.
8gig ddr2 ram
a slow hard drive drive, don't know what it is. . . .(Slow)
It looks like this system isn't touching much of the Ram I already have installed, there's constantly 5 or so gig of unused Ram being reported, I don't think it's a very efficient machine, however I'm hoping a good quad core and an SSD to run the opsys on will help improve it's efficiency, that's where the majority of my budget will be going.
This is what my task manager looks like %99 of the time. . .
If I upgrade the whole thing (Which I can't really afford) I was going to go for an Asus dual socket mobo, two quads, 32 gig of ram and an SSD. . . Pricey but I could save up the £2000 I need within a few months, right now I have a grand.
