    you're not the only one who missed the postie....in this case, i think my package was to big for the letterbox so they didnt even attempt to knock on my door n deliver it, all i got is this red card - and its the 2nd one ive had this week...this is appaling, as i cant pick the package up until monday and ive been waiting all fucking week for it to be delivered. bitches deserved to get privatised - postman are always needed but they are too comfortable with their job and overpaid and since their postmen, R.M cant just lay them off like they can with staff who work inside sorting offices (in otherwords - people like me who did get laid off) bastards get paid more then £10p/h and the small sorting office is within 'danger close' distance and they cant take a fucking small box out n deliever it

    After all this talk about upgrades I don't think I can hold out for the 6950/70 release. Anyone know when it's meant to be scheduled for? I'm inpatient, think I might OC the PCIe bus.

    They were originally rumoured for the 29th of November. I've read some threads on different forums where they're discussing the price but f'ing launch date.

    I doubt I'll be seeing the 6870 drop any lower than £170 as the 5870 is already around £180 on some sites. I must have been pretty drunk last night as I at one point, only for a few seconds mind, considered a MSI GTX460 Hawk then I vommed a load of sicky black tar like substance and then went back to looking at AMD cards.

    Unfortunately I can't tell you as I haven't had DPD deliveries for a while. Check out their site, should tell you.

    I know there not that bad, but from personal experience and from having to change all our cards at from nVIDIA to ATi/AMD I'm stuck in my ways. Plus I have a strong hatred of nVIDIA and have done since the nForce 3/Code 43 malarkey.

    afternoon all!

    question:

    Do I buy some upgrades before end of this year to avoid VAT increase, or do I wait untill this time next year when I KNOW i'll have loads of money to buy a whole new rig?

    What upgrades are you planning on buying and do you really need a whole new rig?

    If you need them (or thinking of upgrading) before Febuary, I think its better off buying now, whereas if you wait, the 2.5% rise will be counteracted by the fall in prices.

    I think its more a case of - its too big to fit into their messenger bags properly with the rest of the other mail and rather have to take it out to deliver it and find out you're not in - they have to lug the box around until they finish their current stack of letters. so it never leaves the sorting office n they drop this little red card through your door asking you to go pick it up yourselfs.

    it makes sense, but ive had packages where it COULD have fit through my letterbox but they didnt bother taking delivering it.

    a trust me - ive done deliveries too so i understand how it is. but it still pisses me off

    I wouldn't do it based on the VAT rise, you will save 2.5p in the pound if you buy now, hardly significant.
