    Should I Upgrade

    That's exactly what I did. A noticeable boost in performance and two new games for free. Definitely worth the small outlay after I sold my 6850. :)

    Galaxy 6 Weeks of Christmas GPU Giveaway!

    I like the Galaxy aesthetics. Rather than being sober and ordinary they aren't afraid of creating coolers that stand out.

    AMD Radeon HD 7870 CrossFire Never Settle Bundle Lucky Draw

    I like the AMD overclocking potential of the mid-range cards I buy, and at their prices they are too good to pass up. Bought an HD6850 and after two years flawless performance I'm definitely looking at sticking with AMD for a replacement.

    Antec Case & PSU Combo Lucky Draw!!!!!

    I'm hanging out to get a P280S but a free P280 sounds good to me. Own a 300 and HCG-620, and both are excellent quality at great prices.

    Asus P8Z77-M Vs Asus P8Z77-M PRO?

    I had the same concerns until I realised that if I'm aiming for 4.5GHz I probably wouldn't be too disappointed in maybe 4.3GHz instead. The P8Z68-M Pro appears to be nearly the same as the P8Z77-M and I've seen it reaching 4.5GHz so it should be possible.

    Asus P8Z77-M Vs Asus P8Z77-M PRO?

    Sounds like you're in the same position as I was. I made the choice to go with the P8Z77-M instead of the Pro. The Pro should be better for overclocking but my goal was the same as yours and I expect the basic M should be fine with reaching it. I think the biggest advantage of the Pro is...

    Heatsink suggestion for E8400

    Yeah, I think it was fairly common. Mine sticks at 40degC.

    Do/Don't you overclock?

    I like overclocking but I'm not concerned with having top shelf components or extracting the absolute maximum performance. I just like pulling things apart and trying out ideas. It makes a good excuse to buy new coolers, fans and cases.

    The world's best $99 case

    Yeah, that's top of my list. Large, slow moving fans are a must have.

    150-200$ budget, want to help me pick a card?

    You could just get a 6850 now and another to crossfire later. Edit - If you're buying a whole new system in a month or so then I'd just wait it out.

    I like the Antec KÜHLER because of the umlaut.

    150-200$ budget, want to help me pick a card?

    Anything more than a 6870 might be overkill for 1680x1050 res running on a C2D system. A 6950 would be more powerful but you wouldn't necessarily be using most of that extra power (depending on what games you're playing, etc).

    150-200$ budget, want to help me pick a card?

    I don't think the warranty applies to the open box cards from the sound of it. Out of those two I'd buy the Gigabyte card, but I went with the Asus DirectCU 6850v2. Better overclocking ability than the Gigabyte but I'd guess it's a bit louder.

    150-200$ budget, want to help me pick a card?

    The 6790 sounds pretty good but I think the 6850 still has better chance of holding up in the long term. It'd come down to how much you can spend though. Both are pretty good bang for buck.

    6850 all the way.

    Good video card to pair with an E8400?

    I'm running an E8400 with a 6850. Ran an 8800GT for ages, tried a 5770 but wasn't very impressed, got a 6850 and the difference is very noticeable. Haven't even looked at overclocking it yet either.

    460 GTX/560 TI compatible with P35-DSR3?

    OP how did the 460 work out for you? I just ordered an Asus DirectCu 6850 instead.

    460 GTX/560 TI compatible with P35-DSR3?

    I've got a GA-P35C-DS3R and am looking at upgrading to a 460 from an 8800GT too. It seems like the chances of a 460 not working are still slim but I'm definitely considering a 68xx card instead.
