    I just ordered this little lot.............. (-:, not an expert on Intel but reckon this should make a lovely setup

    Intel Core 2 DUO E6400 "LGA775 Alendalle" 2.13GHz (1066FSB)
    Asus P5W DH Deluxe WiFi (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
    G.Skill 2GB DDR2 NR PC2-6400 (2x1GB) CAS5 Dual Channel Kit
    Western Digital Raptor 74GB WD740ADFD 10,000RPM SATA 16MB Cache
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB ST3320620AS SATA-II 16MB Cache
    Sony External USB Floppy Drive
    Microsoft Windows XP Media Centre 2005 Edition
    Terratec Cinergy 2400i DT DVB-T TV Tuner (PCI-Express) - Retail

    "unfortunately" this is the 2nd purchase of the week from Overclockers, a few days ago I bought:

    Dell 2407 24" widescreen TFT
    ATI X1900 Crossfire Edition PCI -E card
    ATI 9250 PCI card ( for dual screen)

    Look out for some bargains in MM soon ( I have to eat at some point this month hahaha)

    everything looks as though its in stock but as I have to request them sending them simultaneously ( I dotn want to pay two loads of saturday postage) I will get them to confirm everything is in stock also

    The use of crossfire means that only one screen can be used - and there are other benefits I think to using a seperate card to one you are gaming on

    No problem about asking questions, thats how everyone learns no matter what walk of life you are enquiring about :D

    Anyone know - do the order confirmation emails only work during office hours ( I always thought these were automated, obviously the dispatch ones require manual input but the what about simple confirmation?)
