Re: Help appreciated for new build 700-800 GBP budget
Unfortunately, i've got no time to do research for you but:
CPU: Try finding the i5 2500K. It craps on everything on the market from a great height (bang for buck wise)
Mobo: You can't SLI on it. Which is a problem if you ever want to boost the graphics, which you could do easily on a SLI enabled board simply by adding another 6850. EDIT: it also only supports 1333mhz RAM stock.... What will you use this computer for?
Can you re-use your monitor, mouse, keyboard, optical drive & speakers from your old computer? It might save you some dosh and let you upgrade a few of the other components...
Sorry I can't help more. Hopefully that does give you some food for thought....
My AMD Machine:
1090T Phenom II
Patriot Signature 1333 DDR3 4GB
PowerColor Radeon HD 6870
