    Its from dell outlet. The models have changed now. The 1080gtx is for around 1950 pounds with 10% discount, and has 512gb ssd and 32gb as well. If the heating issues are sorted by Pete then it may be worth the money, unless dell has screwed it up again haha

    Essentially yes, however what Pete said about the 6820 and its temps scared me a bit, but I guess if he sorted it out it will be okay. I guess the same would apply with the 7770

    I would go for that... Don't let Temps scare you always ways around that even cooler modifications (very useful) but thermal paste is a good start

    Thank you. As a novice- casual user, would I notice any difference between 6820 vs 7820 or nothing in my terms of use?

    For that money you could go with Clevo P775TM with i7 8700 and 1070...way way more future proof...

    I have explored that option. I am afraid it isn't the same money. Clevo retailers in EU are more expensive. Adding the 1440p 120hz screen, a 512gb ssd and and the extra ram, ramps the costs around 2600-2700 euro. At present 1930 pounds equals around 2200 euro, and I get the gtx 1080.

    Is the difference between the cpus that drastical? Is it stupid for me to buy a cpu that is 2 generations old? Speed wise we are talking between 4.0ghz to like 4.3-4.4ghz i guess. Would that have a major difference?

    The 8700 is much much better yes but IK terms of gaming or everyday use not that noticeable... People run 980M SLI with a 3rd mobile i7
