    The Official 'i Just Bought...' Thread

    I just picked up a Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook to replace my old Compaq 311c Netbook. I am looking forward to the massive performance increase from the atom to the core i7. In addition I picked up another Humble Bundle, now I have far to many games to play.

    Samsung Galaxy Note II

    Welcome to the Note II club, I can't imagine using a phone with a smaller screen. The only thing I have been missing is the vanilla android look since coming from my Galaxy Nexus.

    The things i get from my friends.....

    The thing I find funny is that the PCs they set up as internet cafe machines at the bank I work for are similar specs and are still using ie6, so they fail at doing most things web related. I bet he asked you to make it faster

    Upgrade from Core2Quad Recommendations

    Just wanted to post an update - all my parts came, I had a small delay on the Coolermaster 210+ but I am loving the extra boost in performance I have gained. I am very happy with the 210+ its keeping the CPU in check currently sitting at around 30-35c idle and around 50c under load. it is so quiet compared to the hum of my old HSF. I have not got around to trying out the overclocking options on the board yet, I have everything set to auto but the board automatically pushes the CPU up to around 3.6ghz on its own and drops it down to 1.4ghz idle so its very efficient. thanks all

    Upgrade from Core2Quad Recommendations

    Hi all I have been running the system below for around 2 years or so and just upgraded the graphics card a couple of times, I am now a few generations behind and looking to do some catching up. Core2Quad Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz Gigabyte P35-S3 2x1gb OCZ Platinum 2x1gb OCZ Gold GTX460 (This is staying) I am on a budget and looking for to do the upgrade for £300 ($490ish) this includes the money made from selling my old parts. I would like to overclock but also keep the system nice and quiet. I have been doing some looking around and some initial picking out, but would like some comments or recommendations. [CPU] Intel Core i5 2500k [Cooler] Looking for recommendations [Memory] Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 9 XMP Dual Channel [Motherboard] Looking for recommendations Thanks

    Upgrade from Core2Quad Recommendations

    Ok, I will never run a dual card set up so I am not concerned over this issue, I always stick to a single fast card
