    It wasn't an invitation to Tatty's house but rather "Memory Lane". I've been there before, its nothing but disappointments!

    Amiga CD32 is shit i wonder who the hell paid £90 for it, i wouldn't even take one for free. I collect a lot of retro games and that, recently just got a Sega Master System with 2 controls and the phaser light gun, 3 games with it for £15 inc p+p. Its hard to find the original model for cheap the Model 2 is much more common. The original can take a scart cable the model 2 is RF only, jesus RF sucks balls.

    I THINK I SHOULD SHUT UP NOW.

    nvm - solved the problem - but if you really need to know - Google '10.10e Pink tint' - I re-benched with the 10.10e drivers and i score just under 22k with my 5850s

    There are cheaper options for that screen size and resolution, and I have never used (or seen) Foehn and Hirsch. I would personally go for something cheaper, but that monitor is not too bad, just lacking Displayport (so is most in the market anyway).

    Only a 90Gb - I found it hard to justify spending £40 more on a 120Gb when I dont really need the extra space.

    And if the time comes that I eventually do, then I will put this 90Gb SSD into my laptop. but as it is - i still got about 30gb of free space on the SSD
    HUSKIE says thanks.

    Ebuyer - But i was looking around Novatech, Dabs and some other online stores before i decided to go and buy from Ebuyer.

    theres is a lot of fluctuation in the Price of my SSD and I have no idea why - Some sites are selling for over £150 but i got it for about £135 - I also saved a few quid on postage as i wasnt in a hurry to get it. I thought it would have arrived by last week friday but it only arrived today - so I had to wait about a week for it to come (4-5 working days my arse)

    Hmmmm..... I dont really think theres anything else in my system that really needs upgrading.....
