Not sure if your following but thought i would give a quick update. And a thanks WR2.
In the end i went to a local computer shop, thought i can pick it up and help out local shop at the same time.
I ended up with an i5 -2500k an Asus P8Z68-Vlx and 8GB kingston hyperthread. Installed it all today, had a bit of a problem with my GFX card no longer lining up on the back of the case, but just took out the slot above and below it. So far so good, all working
So thanks for the help, and the guides they were very useful. Guess i should one day look into overclocking with this 2500k now
