post #11 of 27
Thread Starter 
ok all, I couldnt handle it no more, Ive plunged, only time will tell if Ive done the right thing but based on my current finances & that I will "not" need onboard video or SSD cache, Ive bought for a what I think a really good deal

ASUS P8P67 DELUXE @ £145.20 (today only, normally £160.80)
Intel i5 2500K @ £155.99 (normally £167.99)

So including postage, less than £310 which I think pretty good eh ??

Looks pretty good, only $20 more then what I paid for my 2500k + P8P67 PRO. Not sure about prices there but here its about a $45 difference between the mobos.

lol, I must of really been thinking of Intel v AMD when I went to bed last night as all my dreams were red vs blue related, even star wars fights lol, Also when I got up, my xbox/ps3 docking station shows red when charging but blue when charged, that was the sign, as if to say red's not quite ready, but blue's a go lol
