Right ladies and gentlemen

To save me from being bought a load of tat for Christmas advise me on my next upgrade. My long suffering other half came up trumps last year buying me a I5 -750 for Christmas after our Tom gave her some decent advice.

recent years saw me opening my prezzies with fear and loathing due to some horrendous choices - Richard Hammond My story anyone?, the obligatory socks and boxer shorts, Jack daniels glasses ( with no bloody JD to put in them! ) the list goes on.

So this year I'm looking for another PC upgrade. Thinking along the lines of a SSD or new speaker setup.

My rig spec is in my sig for you to peruse.

Over to you ... oh and Tom enter stage left

Do me proud!!!

I can imagine Lasher now acting like a 10 year old trying to find it

Some kickass speakers and amp to blast out the slade! It's CHRISTMAS!!! That would be annoying.

I got a 'proper' amp and bookshelf speaker setup a year and a bit ago and I can say I'm NEVER going back to any PC speakers. Even those who think their logitech 35657.1 setups are good, they haven't heard anything yet.
