    They're out of stock though. Wish they could ship to UK. Komplett closed down its Uk branch the other month. :(

    Dont suppose anyone would buy one and ship it over?

    It's obviously a mistake. And I'm pretty sure I'll just get a mail explaining it and I'll reject paying more and they'll refund me.

    There is however a small chance that they don't notice and ship me the card when it's in stock. Nothing to lose.

    Yeah but then they will bang on about stock, and its not in the UK. They come up with all the excuses in the book. had an argument with a Scan rep at hexus.net about their prices being about £50 higher than ebuyers.

    Shoot, at that price, I'd feel bad about it.

    I like paying proper price for my components, or anything for that matter :)

    from the terms and conditions on Komplett.ie

    'Should we, contrary to what we all expect, have a pricing error generated by human hands, we reserve the right to delete the order and offer you the item at the correct price.'

    I wouldn't get too excited- these orders are almost certain to be cancelled.:cry:
