Hi northumbria61 thanks for confirming that, could you allso advise on the CPU he was looking to get an Intel i5 http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/processors/intelcorei3,i5andi71155socket/bx80623i52310.html but to save money i suggested an i3 http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/processors/intelcorei3,i5andi71155socket/bx80623i32120.html Is the i3 a reasonable CPU to go for or is it worth paying a bit more for the i5 would there be a noticeable difference in the speed and what they can do? Never had any dealings with the new CPUs im still plodding along with a P4 does the job i ask it to do. But i know the case he bought was a gameing one so i guess thats what he has in mind. Thanks again.
