    Well, depends on how you see it really. Its either they are subsidising our prices, or they are the cause of stupid prices.

    Will have to see. I am trying to get some holidays in late Feb or early March so it depends what dates I find cheapest flights. I'll PM ya closer the time if I can make it. But yeah I'd expect to have to pay for my own paintballs. That's where the majority of the cost is.

    i dont touch shorts, until i am fairly drunk, and then its either Jameson, Bushmills or Sambuca.
    also thanks for the tip, on the upgrade, i know my old Q6600 would bottleneck a good card, but i am thinking of either jusy getting a better monitor and gpu or going for a different setup, like a i7 rig or maybe even go the AMD route, it just depends on my budget.

    ps. also is it me or have you changed your avatar? you used to have a clown or something like that before

    Wow. You know when you join a conversation halfway through and you feel like you just wanna quietly leave the room, or stay silent in the corner?

    Where do you usually go paintballing Freedom?

    there are so many idiots about, who as soon as you mention overclocking, they look at you with the silly face and say "Oh no, that can kill my pc"
    and even when you try and explain it is safe to do, they are still not interested in listening, but these are the type of people who go to pc world, and get ripped off with crap pc's

    I prefer a few whiskys first before hitting the shots - Tequila or Jagerbomb/Jagermeister. A better monitor would be a good way to go, Look for a Viewsonic CP2365wb - they have managed to cram an excellent top notch IPS panel into an under £200 budget. yes I changed my avatar.

    I used to go delta force alot but with the new crew we now regular at Campaign

    thats where you come in and offer your expertise (if you have any) I have poached alot of customers from PCworld before they signed on the dotted line and made custom builds for them and also overclocked rigs for the more openminded bunch tech wannabes who just want something special for bragging rights.

    theres a lot of people who walk around PCworld that dont have a single clue what they are looking at.

    Trust me - PC world is an excellent place to poach business from. I think Ive only ever had 2 rejections from people just because im not a proper registerd/established business. and the other was because I didnt have a business card to give them (maybe i should just print a load off)

    I think its about time I save up for a Sandy Bridge i7 rig - all i really need is the mobo, ram, CPU and HSF - roughly about £450-470. though i could try save a few pennies by going with an i5 sandy instead

    Just after I thought I was happy with my rig as it is. I want a fucking Silverstone FT03.

    >.<

    Obviously I'm going to hang back until Sandy Bridge matures but I'm possibly going to be parting with my core components; albeit, not my RAM, GPU or PSU.
