    I've updated the front post to reflect all the changes. Every component has been changed, so it's worth having a fresh look at them.

    Hard Drive
    Samsung Spinpoint F4 - £57
    A massive two terabyte drive at a remarkable price, and high density platters for top performance too.
    Fitted: November 11
    It's amazing how this hard drive has more than doubled in price due to the floods in Thailand.

    Question SLI Motherboard

    In last month magazone you changed the GPU to a NVIDIA 560.

    Having just looked at the mainboard that was also recommended last month Gigabyte z68ap-D3 I noticed that this is not SLI compatible.

    What mainboard would you recommend for SLI (just in case I want to put a second 560 in at some point). I have been looking at Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3, any good?

    That motherboard is good as well as Asrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3.

    Default Ssd

    Just one other quick question. Are SSD's as good as they say? I am intending on getting on OCZ Vertex 3 60GB for my OS drive.

    With regard installtion, there used to be issues between some motherboards and SSD not giving the perfomance mentioned, is this a thing of the past or do I still need to check compatability?
