    I'm contemplating upgrading my home PC. I really do like the look of one of these 6 Cores, all running at 3.2ghz with 9MB of cache for £235, sounds like the best buy out there at the moment to me. The motherboards that are designed for it also have USB 3.0 support, stick some nice DDR3 1800Mhz RAM in there along with my current graphics card (9800GTX+) and I'll be well away.

    I might wait a few months first for the price of it to come down a bit though.

    I've been eyeing up a new PC for some time now, But it'll set me back £1500-2000 to buy something properly new and shiny.

    My 'want' list as far as PC spec goes:

    Intel I7 930
    USB3 + SATA 6GB support Mobo
    12gb Memory
    ATi Radeon 5870
    New Case (eyeing up the Antec 902)
    Corsair 750W PSU
    128GB SSD
    2TB 6GB SATA drive
    BR-RW Drive
    2x 24" HDMI monitors, possibly 3d (though not sure they are worth it atm till ati bring out a 3d option, would rather spend the money on a decent monitor)

    I already have a 250GB, 2 identical 500GB, and a 1.5TB hard drive, so will recycle the 2x 500's into a raided pair, and keep the others to tick over the current PC as a media server, which I will turn full passive setup and stick in my bedroom or living room as a media PC!

There was a good deal on the Canon 450D with Jessops with twin lenses, lowepro bag and tripod. However, the 450D is about two years old now and the Sony is newer.

    Well I've had a play with the Sony A550 and here are some of my first photos (resized )...

    Let me know what you think

    Cheers

    Might be my monitor here but the last two look marginally over-exposed, might want to try knocking it down slightly...

    My next objects being eye'd up are a 430EXii Flash gun, some cactus triggers, and an 85mm f/1.8 ... damn expensive hobby!

    yup slr's are a bottomless pit into which to dump money buying bigger/faster/image stabilized lenses its very easy to spend lots of cash (currently im on 4 lenses though 1 is a replacement for another replaced a 90-300mm with a 55-250 image stabilized lense) and last lens was a 50(or was it 55mm?) f 1/8 which tbh i have barely used and to add insult to injury takes different sized filters to my other lenses lol

    Yeah, Adobe Direct do the Master Suite with about 80% off for Teachers and Students .. so about £560 instead of the £2700 .. I thought it'd be rude not to take advantage of working in a school on this occasion .. lol ..
