The mini ITX addition is brilliant as everyone said. I intend to be building one of my own as soon as I can.
I'm not sure about the Prodigy because of its size, is it only price that you didn't put the silverstone FT03 mini in? Idealy I'd like my system to be easily put into a bag and taken to LAN's in future aswell as living on my desk behind my screen.

What? Where? The only one I've seen in Ebuyer's offer on the Sandisk 256Gb model for £99, that is now off. Other than that, even the lower spec SSD's (such as that Sandisk) are still £130-135 ishy. Alas, I wish the quote were true XD
But yeay, buyer's guide is back! :)

My 3770K IB sits at 4.7GHz and runs no hotter than my old i7 920. Its stupidly quick at laughs at everything I throw at it. I have no complaints at all with it, however Ive not had chance to play with a SB K series chip.

you need to whack an extra 144 squids to the overall total price.

So even if you don't end up with just as high an overclock (this is never guaranteed anyway as every chip is different) you'll still likely stand to gain in performance terms anyway. Add to this the fact that Ivy Bridge is more power efficient and it's plain to see that if you're buying a new high end LGA1155 CPU, you should opt for Ivy Bridge. So no, we're not accepting bribes or being persuaded in other ways to recommend products we haven't thoroughly tested first, and found worthy of recommending. We never have done and we never will.
