    im sure it will go why higher i just dint see the point with my 7900gtx as all i get is better 3dmark scores and no actual game play imporvement... so what should i try and get my cpu at with the 8800gtx so i dont get a bottleneck


    p.s. how long does it take to get this invoice as i cant pay till i get it as it not let me ??

    Grats Damien666 a 8800gtx with stock e6800 scores about 10700 in 3dmark06 so your score with overclocked e6600 to 3gig and overclocked gtx expect to see 11000.

    You did see this part didn't you Damien?
    So you are actually paying:

    VAT to be Added: £50.57
    Grand Total: £339.58

    You probably realise it already, but thought I'd mention it in case you didn't.

    Could've bought this one: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-051-OK&groupid=701&catid=56&subcat=877

    No offence but it's a pain in the ass when people don't pay for stuff they've entered into a legally binding contract to buy on ebay.

    Always read the WHOLE listing. Yes it is sneaky of them to not include VAT but that's why you should read the small print before you commit.

    I guess if you're not fussed about your ebay rep then just don't respond to them & accept the neg feedback. Not sure if they'd do more much than that.

    Why are you going throgh all this crap when it isn't any cheaper than ordering from an e-tailer? That would be so much easier.
