    Bloody fun and games. You know that PC I'm sorting out for my mate's Grandad? It's had a new PSU, new RAM, new HDD, now the mobo's decided to kick the bucket. GRRRR!

    Unfortunately I havent got the slightest clue - but if your facing the Big o'neils pub its on the left hand side on the same side of the street as o'neils - past all the Mr.Wongs buffets n other shit like that. We all gotta do a meet up some time and we can all go together.

    Lol. That's just insane. When I was at uni I survived a month on rice. Big cheap bag of rice from TESCO plus anything else I could scavenge from the reduced to clear section when I had anything more to spend.

    EDIT: Just seen Scami's post now. Based on two of us I'd say it's pretty daming for tesco to be seen as the UK poorman's choice lol

    Tesco FTW! Well, we got a Lidl's in our town, but I'd only ever get alcohol from there!!

    One thing I do remember tesco does good for cheap is Milk Chocolate. The tesco value one that comes in a cardboard rather than plastic wrapping. 26p I think.. but really tasty stuff.

    Also my Sister's 19" Dell screen was £80 at tesco back at the time it was around £150

    Yea we got an Aldi but it's a couple of towns away. Rachmaninoff's a good deal too, usually about a fiver for 700ml (vodka) and they do different flavours too.

    I might just have a look. The thing is, when we get booze, we get a lot, and our local Costcutter deliver your stuff if you spend over £35 so we got lazy!!! We just have to phone them.

    Niiiice, I used to work at a place called Lenham Storage. Among other things, they're a massive distribution place for Lindt. Lindt Bunnies, Lindor, the lot all for "free"... Actually, me and thesilentone used to work there together. Stuff to make your mouth water!!

    Can you tell it's getting closer to dinnertime? :laugh:

    If you want to risk it you always have ASDA's cheap gin, rum and vodka bottles hovering in price around a fiver. But that reminds me too much of a few years ago where the point of drinking was to get smashed.

    I drink moderately nowadays though, so I don't mind spending money on some good single malt whiskey and take my time to drink it over a few months. Have some 17yr old special edition Glenfiddich, cost about £60 but this must be my 3rd month enjoying the same bottle. Value for money, in a way.

    Me and my mrs always used to drink together and we'd have bugger all money, so we used to get 4 big bottles of the cheap ASDA's own WKD-style stuff for £5, and a bottle of vokda for a fiver.
    She'd drink 2 bottles of alcopop, and I'd drink the other two but mix vodka with them and make an alcopop that actually gets you drunk!!

    Glenfiddich is lovely, I got given a 21 year old bottle on my 21st birthday, and that lasted ages. Absinthe is good value for money aswell, if you do it properly. 3/4 pint of water and a teaspoon of sugar, tastes nice and lasts a while.

    I can't blame ya, if I didn't have booze already I'd be offy up the offy!!! Don't be sorry, I haven't even paid for it yet!!


    What problem you having?

    Just kidding - If me ma sees me carrying anymore booze into the house shes going to throw something at me.

    Now I thought me ma couldnt throw for shit but she threw an orange at me and it hit me head with so much force it knocked me flat. so Id have to be like a ninja creeping into the house.

    (that would make it under 25x cans of strongbow in my room)

    Nice. Got the pro version and the gigabyte ud4, was wondering if you had another one to get some info on what MSI are like.

    But agree with you.. it's a really good board. Although overclocking with speedstep and energy saving things switched on seems weird still:rolleyes:

    How quick does the UEFI BIOS take to POST? Is it quicker than a standard BIOS?
