    Warning Yadnum Computers

    The feds will likely tell you to stop wasting their time. I highly doubt that. These people have paid for goods which they clearly have not recieved, ergo it is theft. The police investigate theft.

    Warning Yadnum Computers

    If I were you I'd lodge a complaint with the AFP, then send the guy an email notifying him that you have lodged an official complaint to the AFP. If he doesn't pay up straight away he will when the cops knock on his door.

    What's wrong with the HD 4870X2? I know you said you prefer the GTX295 but what is you reasoning behind this? I'm open to all suggestions.

    OK so I've taken everything you guys have said on board. I'm sticking with the HD 4870X2 but will make most of the other changes. Please let me know what you think: Case: CoolerMaster HAF-932 Motherboard: EVGA X58 CPU: Intel i7-920 RAM: G Skill 6G(3x2G) DDR3 PC12800 9-9-9-24 HDD: Western Digital 1TB Sata II 3.5" Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4870X2 2GB PSU: Corsair TX750 OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit A couple of questions I've thought of: a)Will air-cooling be sufficient if I overclock the CPU as previously suggested, or will I need to look into liquid cooling? b)What are your thoughts on the mobo? This is an expensive component, so if there's a cheaper alternative that offers sufficient performance that you can suggest then I'd love to hear it. Again, thanks for all the assistance guys. Much appreciated.

    STIMULUS PACKAGE

    Your only making our economy worse by doing that, hopefully not many people are stupid enough to do this or it will all be for shit and everyone will be screwed. Mate if you think anybody is thinking about the economy when they're spending their $950 then you're sorely mistaken. I'm looking out for numero uno. I know what a difference payments like these will make in the long run ($950 now will save me $5,000 in the long run).

    STIMULUS PACKAGE

    I actually get it a number of times, apparently if you meet the criteria more then once you're eligible for the payment multiple times. I a)earn under $100,000 b)study full-time c)sole income earner for my family. But to answer the question, it's going on the home loan! So very exciting.

    Thanks for the quick advice guys! I'll have a scratch around with the recommendations and return to you all with a revised build.

    Hey guys, Well I've just about convinced my wife that computers don't last forever, and that our old single core dinosaur isn't going to see the year out. So I'll be building my next rig and thought I'd see what you guys thought of the components. I'm prepared to spend a bit of money on the machine as it's usually 3+ years between builds. Here's the gear, let me know what you think: Case: CoolerMaster HAF-932 Motherboard: EVGA X58 CPU: Intel i7-940 RAM: Patriot 1600 DDR3 6GB Kit HDD: Western Digital 1TB Sata II 3.5" Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4870X2 2GB PSU: Corsair HX-1000W OS: Ubuntu 8.10 64-bit I haven't decided on a CPU cooler but would appreciate any suggestions. Cheers Truckasauras
