@ DMS I was hoping the price might go down and last month most etailers had them at around £150 (the 1100T) but now virtually all seem to either not stock it or have it closer to £200. I'm currently on a 4 core (955 @ 4.1) but was going to give it to my dad when the hex went EOL, didn't expect it this early after BD though.
Intel i7 930 @ 2.2ghz (thats right underclocked) / 6GB RAM / GTX 460 1gb / Silverstone FT-02
Intel E6600 @ 4.12ghz / 8gb RAM / GTX 460 1gb / Coolermaster HAF X (First Version) / Raid 0 Vertex 2 SSD
You wouldnt believe how much it caught everyone out...they literally just pulled production on it once APU and FX went live Sad times to see Athlon and Phenom die out when they were great parts!
I think it's possible they realised they were unlikely to sell FX unless they stopped producing Phenom? I'm sorry for AMD as I have never had an intel processor before, but I am at the point I need this upgrade I have bought and can't wait till Xmas to put together my new system, albeit an Intel one
As much as I would like Batman AA I think it's only fair I sit out the next competition

Thanks again Dunc. Parcel arrived within 24 hours so do you run on an SSD? Took me all my time to backup and move all my data off my system drive so I could clone it. Then had to use my other SATA controller to update the firmware but now it's up to date and flying. System loads in half the time, programs load extremely fast. It was well worth the wait.
I've usually had AMD systems as price has been a large factor and the last upgrade I can do on my board is an X6 so I've managed to find one. Plus the X4 goes to a good home (Dad goes from a dual core on a 939 board to AM3+).
