Corsair RAM is really overpriced. Personally I'd say 300Pounds is probably asking too much for a Sandy setup. 250 pounds is probably more on par for a used system like that. But then that 50 pounds may not be a big deal to you if your costs are made up from the performance improvement. thumb.gif

I was thinking the same thing as 300 was a bit much for sandy 250-270 converted to USD sounds decent.

CPU is old but its still pretty decent, will have you lagging in games like BF4 though, if I was you id get a i5 3570k on the cheap with a cheap mobo and ram and wait till haswell-e

i was looking for 3770k set up but i couldnt find anyone selling an 3770k for a decent price , as for it being £300 to me its seem pretty fair price mainly because if i wanted a haswell set up it will net me around £450 so 33%~ higher price tag for possibly about 20% performance?

i7 is kind of one things that i will be benefiting from reasonably so im limited to 2600k/2700k 3770k or 4770k

i have an ssd so i dont really need another one,


@baker which retailers are selling with AIR/AIO i havent noticed anyone at the moment

What will you be using the rig for mostly? An upgrade now to a 4770K from a Q6600 will be a massive improvement in processing power, but with games and stuff I would think that your 4870 would be a bit of a bottleneck. Just thinking outside I suppose...To answer the question though, I would just buy now. Unless you are buying the absolute newest tech, you're almost always going to be behind almost instantly.

2600K at 4.7 should be fairly expected to accomplish thumb.gif

I could get mine to 4.7, even 4.8 once but it wasn't stable at all. I currently run mine at 4.3 and that does the job well when paired with slightly higher clocked ram at 1866.
