I decided after all these years of AMD I had to now move and get the best value for my money I sold most of my AMD rig parts my HD5770 1GB card I sold for £55, my board and RAM for £90 and currently my AMD P-II 945 is up for sale on eBay with a starting bid of £55 which has been met and I have a lot of watchers.
Anyway here's the new build
INTEL I7 2600K
HIS HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E Card
Gigabyte H77-D3H DDR3 Board
Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB DDR3 1866MHz Dual Channel Kit
I have saved my Corsair 550w PSU, case. 500GB HDD and optical drive but the I will be adding parts again soon like a 128GB SSD and another (maybe) Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB DDR3 1866MHz Dual Channel Kit. Should arrive tomorrow the 7850 wont till next week as its on pre-order but I'll run some tests and get some numbers when it's done.

Finally After 12 Years I've Moved Over To INTEL

I'm not loyal to any brand by default! I get what's good and in my range.
Congrats on upgrading though. I'll be building myself a similar system soon.
Adding some more parts
Main storage: Crucial RealSDD M4 128GB SSD
Sec Storage: Seagate 1TB 7,200rpm 64mb Cache HDD
PSU: Akasa Venom 750w Modualr PSU
Cooler: Antec Kuhler H20 Liquid Cooler
Optical: LG DVD-RW
Still waiting on the 7850 as it's not released on any shop yet but once it's all done I'll take some pics and get some OC benches currently my 8GB ram at max 1866mhz gives me 7.9 in Windows Index my 2600k at stock gives me 7.6. Over my old AMD 945 and 4GB 1066mhz system I gain 2 points over it with the INTEL chip (obviously better performance in apps) and 6 points with faster RAM.
