    Hah, I wouldn't worry about that, because in SA it'll almost certainly never happen.

    E0 or C0? and the "0" stepping are pretty hard to find. and how far can the Q9550 clock to without increasing vcore much?

    E0.
    The chip should make 3.5-3.6 on a reasonable voltage with C1, 3.8-3.9 on E0, if not more.

    I HIGHLY doubt it, the CPU does play a role in overclocking too!

    Got it, thanks, I never care what they look like, but is sure as hell scores high on practicality, I'm still looking forward to my first build, and I will be looking hard on this one.

    you need to screenshot the basket and upload it to imageshack etc, and post it up here.

    Lol - you can't just paste links to your shopping cart, as we don't have the cookies stored telling us what you've bought, you need to paste links individually, or as spam says, screencap it.

    Looks fine, but is that the best graphics card you can get for R1275?

    yeah it's one of the cheapest for that price for a HD3870, if you're looking for HD4850 or 8800GT it's more than that. I think HD3870 is enough for him, because he is attending LANs etc with a 6200 AGP.

    @Spam what are you talking about? Sorry i don't understand...

    Yeah that's fine then. I was wondering because in the USA the 8800GT is cheap. Obviously not the case in South Africa.
    From what I can see, spam uses a firefox extension that allows you to screencapture the window...

    that or the whole page (liek you cannto screen the whole list due to your montior res, so its goes down to scroll, and saves the entire page as an image, i think go on paint.net and edit it jsut to show the list, and post my long dream pics as useless thumbs.lool
