    I used to think people in Japan got paid a lot, but apparently their average wage is less then ours, how do they survive like that in a country where a DVD can cost up to £50

    Does anybody want a £5 off voucher for a PC Gamer magazine subscription?
    At 19:10 I'll post it here. So whoever gets it first, gets it.

    Simply quote this code in the check out on this* site:
    5OFFAC-XMAS11

    *That's the site of the company that owns PC Gamer, you can use that code for any of their magazines.

    If that's not a misprint that seller should be shot for exploiting the mentally retarded people that actually buy PC hardware from e-bay.

    Im sure its just a mistake and they havent rectified it. The seller is actually a business that has its own website that sells on ebay also (obviously) Ive bought stuff from them quite a few times and their support is more then helpful for a smaller company thats not as well known or prestigious as others like Novatech, Ebuyer, Dabs & Aria.

    I should really email them and tell them their price for that is way off.

    It says "9 available/4 sold" :laugh:

    I guess why they've done it:
    Since HDD's are "scarce" at the mo, some sellers are putting just one HDD up at a ridiculous price, that won't sell, just to advertise the fact that they've got HDD's for sale. I come to this conclusion by checking all the sellers other items (there's more than one seller with HDD's at this price). They've got other HDD's at the "normal" price.

    I use the same trick on APB:Reloaded when selling clothes on the auction. But still just a theory.

    Moar epic prices anyone?

    You know what??? Id rather pay for 2 brand new 2011 model Audi S8 Quattro's for that price (totally in love with that car)

    If not the S8 then 4 2011 version Audi A6's (i just love the look of the lights at the back)

    £239...

    It was a choice between that and a 2nd hand Harzo for £320 (minimum) on Ebay.

    £239's not bad. Brand new that's about as cheap as you can get.

    It is the cheapest.

    I wasn't going to go TN, so i had to choose between a 23" IPS, 24" VA or 27" VA...

    I disagree, from when i was looking its average for a decent Z68 board (not high end). Its got a lot of USB 3.0 and sata SATA 3 (6 Gbps) ports. Although it doesnt have pci ex 3.0 its got a good power design so it probably overclocks well. The original price was ridiculous.

    wondering if i need 16Gb of ram.... Ive got a little extra cash, and im thinking of making a little upgrade, but i cant think what. the 90GB SSD was a problem -> I upgraded that to a 128GB. that was really the last thing on the list of to-do's aside from more HDD capacity which is a little too expensive to even contemplate at the moment
