Well it's a retail bought laptop, and I'm pretty sure I can't use the GPU from that; it's an NVIDIA GEforce 9600M. It's on its last legs though, has all sorts of problems with it and won't be able to support the rendering stuff I have to do for university.

ah! I see =p

No you won't be able to reuse the laptops GPU but if your getting this for uni it may be worth asking the uni what software your using because different software use different parts of the computer to render. For example the software supports cuda then the GPU will make a difference during rendering. However if it uses the CPU to render then the GPU won't help at all during rendering.

However I still stand by the previous comment that I'd give it some time before buying that part =p

Out of interest what are you going to be studying? smile.gif

While I agree on the software front (it might even be best to wait until the next Nvidia release), if you want to be gaming on it as soon as possible, I still maintain that the 6950 is the way to go.

Yes, the 7950 is far faster. It's also far, far more expensive. £150 more expensive, at £350 vs. £200. Prices will likely drop, but until Nvidia's products hit the shelves, I don't think that AMD is going to be lowering its prices much, it'll be done on the outlet side of things - which will mean something around £20 price drop following the release of the 78xx series, and then possibly another £10 or so over the months afterwards. At least, those are my guestimates.


When Nvidia starts to compete, prices will fall further, but I think AMD are going to price their 78xx a little over these until Nvidia release their competing cards, so that AMD can milk their 69xx series for as long as possible.

As always in the technology market, prices will fall in the future. In this case, the future is probably three or so months away. Six to nine for a particularly large price drop £50 or so), but if you're looking at building now, then that's still a bit far in the future, isn't it?


(but seriously look at what you're going to be using, programme-wise. It might be best to get a 570)



Edit:

International shipping on the motherboard posted above:

FedEx
FedEx International Economy $44.00
FedEx International Priority $35.00

UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE
USPS Parcel Air $48.00


Still works out quite cheap overall (about £90 after shipping), but doesn't have SSD caching.

well Korlus I guess we could debate this forever =p

I guess we buy our stuff with different things in mind but tbh price is always a sore point with PC's hence the console market xD

but urm to OP i think there's one thing we both recommend that is find out about the software you'll be using wink.gif at the end of the day you don't wanna spend £800 on a PC that won't do what you want it too, at a level or standard that you want ;p especially considering the cost of Uni's now. I can relate to you because I'm in my final year of sixth form and I won't be able to go to Uni next year but I possibly will be trying to the year after.

I guess PC parts seem like nothing when you sum up an up to £9000 a year education ... and that's only the tuition =L
