    Not sure, but when I was at uni they jumped from the £1k to the £3k and never had to pay anything more. Think this £6k will work the same, anybody already enrolled remains on the initial tuition fees.

    my room is freezing - so im deciding to put in an order next week for another 5850 to go into my 'room heater'

    I have a choice between these 2...

    http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/...ongraphicscards/atihd5800series/nov-5850.html

    XFX HD 5850 Black Edition 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI....

    ----

    as for the novatech one - aparently, theres been a lotta talk from people that have bought the novatech branded 5850. but when they recieved it, it turned out to be a Palit/powercolour or some other manufacturer

    the XFX is £10 more and of course for that extra £10 im getting a brand i can trust. the Novatech however is more of a mystery. from what people say, it depends on what ever they have in stock at the time

    "Shitty" Link are the worst couriers ive personally used.
    Royal Mail on the other hand are decent, depends where you live but the price to quality of delivery is not bad compared to like UPS where the price is extremely rip off.

    EDIT: HDNL got a spot on watchdog on BBC for missing delivery times and claiming they delivered but no one was in.

    Still looking for breakfast... Bought Weetabix Chocolate. Never going to fall for that trap again, chocolate mint with extra sugar or not.

    I have been eating crunchy nut for the past 2 months. Problem is that it gives me midday crash, so I started to look for alternatives with less sugar.

    Pffft! Cereal. It's all about the Fry Up!

    Cumberland sausages, 2 fried eggs, baked beans, fried mushrooms, black pudding, bacon, fried tomatoes and some fried bread!

    :D

    This. Add a cup of coffee, put the lot in a polystyrene takeaway box, and it's called a "breakfast in a box" for £3.50!!! Killer price, and it's only at the end of my road! I've never been so happy!
