My "friendlh" advice is that dont upgrade to octa core, atleast today :)

I cant think on top of my head a single game that uses 8 cores at the same time, maybe ARMA 3? Not sure about ARMA2.

Wait before 8-core CPU's get more common and more people start supporting them (IMO, that will never happen, but who knows) So that their price drops a little
, asuming you insist that octa is required for something super cool/important thing :wink:

Seriously.. why don't you buy some kind of sporting equipment instead of upgrading already ubercool pc? :)

Something like this beast: http://www.cannondale.com/svn/2012/bike ... team-21369

It's a downhill bike so it isn't meant to go cross-country or anything. It seems that it's single speed (as far as I can tell) so the larger gears are in the back but 3-speeds aren't required (or used) on downhill bikes. Basically, this isn't a leisure bike, it has a specific purpose and is far too inefficient to use for everyday use.

Those are nice bikes sxy. Wish I had the money for those, instead I recently bought myself a Norco Bigfoot for my FR/DH uses.

No, it is not a downhill bike. :) It is Nicolai Helius AM all-mountain/enduro type (in red ano color - sexy but horribly, horribly expensive - 400€ upcharge for whole frame) and is "relatively well" ridable. You won't ascend as easily as with cross country bike, but in theory you can ride all day epic rides with it (granny gears and stamina FTW - I know a few lunatics that ride/push such bikes to alpine summits, but as AlphaRed has said - this is definitely not a leisure bike :D).
Also, this bike is equipped with Hammerschmidt AM crank which has two-speed planetary gears (1:1 and 1:1,6 gear ratios) and hydraulically operated telescopic seatpost for quick rising/lowering the saddle.

Hardtails are fun bikes :) Great for polishing technique and very playful. I myself own 2005 C'dalle furio hardtail but am getting new bike next year (Either C'dalle Jekyll or Nicolai Helius AC). :)

This is top price model and costs 8000€, but entry model is far cheaper (3300€) and pretty well equipped (albeit heavier - 10,5kg compared to 6,8kg). But any front suspension bike (hardtail) for 600-800€ is enough for a novice rider :P

ps: One reason why MTB could be great sport for you - you can always "PIMP your ride" with expensive übercool components :P :lol:

there is only one frame that supports the front wheel... i wonder if thats strong and stable enough to hold the front wheel, but it looks awesome and futuristic,

The front fork design comes from aeroplanes and is stiffer and lighter than conventional double stanchion fork design.
