the i70 can be had for 210 quid, ive seen it for 202 quid. well I dont need crossfire or sli, on graphics card is doing me good. but the proformance gain from sandybridge may be huge, so it seems like its worth the wait. then again I have to consider the VAT rise. hmmm. then again nothing is "wrong" with my computer it runs, does what i need it to do. so maybe im better of saving my 350 quid (sell my current mobo/cpu and ram for around 150 quid).
