Talking New Sys


It`s a tough call when to buy a new sys. I waited and waited and chose each part as they got decent reviews. Dual cores look nice but sound very expensive ! Venice and SD cores have had great OC`s, and are reasonably priced.

My last sys has lasted me well, it`s still going strong and able to play everything incl HL2 no problems. Shows that a decent OC on a stable system will last you , mine has for a year and a half with no upgrades. I`ve only moved to a new one due to my need for speed and frame rates , plus hunger for OC`ing :-)
