    replace the GFX only imho - the rest of it is ok. save your money for when the next gen comes at least as its not enough of a performance jump to justify £1000

    Cheers for advice. Looking at benchmarks looks like not a massive improvement over a oc'd 920

    So I'm thinking 7970 and the higher resolution 27" this time. And nov/dec do a CPU mobo change!

    Or

    7950cf or 7990.... But I do fancy a sexy high resolution display!

    That gpu seems th way to go the ghz edition!

    Monitor I think I'll get the 2560x1440 or whatever the resolution was. Fancy a higher res. but monitor you posted seems good with 1ms.
