Yup, i'm either going for the "budget build" of a P5K + E2160 + 2 GB DDR800 Ballistix for £228 shipped, and if i fall into any cash can just swap the E2160 for a Q6600 G0

Thats what makes these prices so sweet!

Im looking at putting together another spare 'test' pc for myself. Normally I'd probably source a good 2nd hand mobo, P4 or celeron, and some good 2nd hand DDR. But now (with the price of CPU's, hard drives & RAM) for the same price I can put together a new PC for the same price based on a Core 2 AND its upgradeable!
