Sorry Fumarole, missed your post! Damage was £720 in the end. I added £50 for an expedited build & dispatch though. Impatience :)
Bread Car wins. Thanks for your understanding :)
Can you give me a chance to defend myself here?
I haven't forgotten about the initial request that my OP about the upgrade should have been made in the tech forum, but even after that observation...
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thanks to everybody who got involved with, and answered my questions in my long-running 'Bloomin' Graphics Cards' thread.
It was a very difficult...

You guys are awesome, thanks! I'm posting a thread about this shortly, since it's worthy of a mention.

Thanks for the helpful info FF. The difference in cost between the 2400 and the 2500K is, astonishingly, £20. Considering all that you've told me, it seems I'd be foolish not to throw in the extra...

I think then, all things considered, case size isn't really going to be a hugely important factor for me. Yes, smaller form PCs take up less room - but I suppose there are also compromises where...

I think this thread has now veered off the OP's topic about Metacritic, somehow.

I'm currently using this thing:
(iPhone included for scale!)
This is the CoolerMaster HAF case, standing at around 230 x 599 x 550 mm.

Circumstances have found themselves slightly more favourable, and it's looking like a new machine is probably in the pipeline.
One question, would this machine be decent enough to last me,...

Thanks for the helpful insights. I'm definitely not necessarily after the absolutely latest-and-greatest. And to be honest, not many games out now would even take advantage of the full brute force of...

I'm glad there's some sensible discussions going on about this.
Although I think there's a limited market for this idea - given that Steam has such an enormous software library now, and the Steam...

As I mentioned in my post - I was very concerned over buying a new GFX card because of the disaster I had last time I tried it.
In summary, a while ago I bought an nVidia GTX 580. This thing:...

I'm thinking this as a starting point:
The specs seem pretty decent for the price. What do you guys think?

Thanks for the update suggestions on this.
I wasn't aware that the 7850 wasn't out yet - It was something somebody suggested earlier on in this thread, which I suspect was down to my mention of...

I was going to sidle with the Radeon HD7850 as a good middle ground between my current GTX 285 and the bleeding-edge, but I can't seem to find a retailer anywhere online that stocks it.

Thanks, everyone who took the time to reply to my questions.
It might be worth reiterating my original point about the watercooling sporadically failing - I actually went into the BIOS and...

Sorry, I'm not quite au fait with the structure of these forums yet. So many, and with so many different rules :)
My budget is probably looking around the £1300 maximum. No need for a display (or...

Hey guys and gals,
Last year, I attempted to upgrade my PC by treating myself to a new GFX card - the nVidia GTX 850, and was horrified to realise that I couldn't fit it because it was too bloody...
