Ok now I ma looking at EVGA stuff because it has been recommended a fair bit just recently I can get PSU ok but graphics cards so few and what there are - are so expensive.

Anywya the PSU I am looking at EVGA SuperNOVA G2 Gold 750W Power Supply too because the Corsiar "equivalent" is so expensive and the case well I do really like my Coolermaster HAF XM but not available anymore and in my mind the best case I have ever used but am going to settle for this CoolerMaster MasterCase Pro 5 Modular Mid Tower Case as I like the look and the filtering system on it and I still have the width measurement of the HAF XM.

Ok Brian I might give that one or the 650watt one as Corsair have priced themselves out of my budget.

Skylake processor SKUs leaked
Not official, but here is the pertinent graphic. Slated for an August launch. Time to rebuild with Win 10, to be released just about the same time. There's some unofficial benchmarks out there already if you want to pound on Google. Probably from engineering samples.
