You are welcome :) I could probably build a half-decent gaming rig from spare parts that are kicking around, let alone the near 10 year old Core-i7 sat gathering dust in the other room, or the two NUC's that are stuffed in a drawer waiting for me to do something useful with them :)
However, they won't quite deliver what I would want, because half the fun of a good gaming rig is overclocking the shit out of it without deafening yourself or flooding the place with de-ionised blue water :P
Once I get settled in my new house it will defintely be OR time, and new gfx card for the old gaming rig and an ssd and I will be cooking with binary bits :D
