    use a laptop. or get a cheap one with a AMD E-450, should give you some grunt for gaming but not much - their usually around £200-250. maybe more if its in a netbook/laptop

    no love for BF3???

    tbh Im not entirely that stoked about BF3 as i was about BF2. to me BF2 was just totally amazing.
    dont get me wrong, the game is superior to BF2 in almost every way, but some of the maps + destructable environments just spell disaster on some maps as it promotes camping and bitches that shoot you in the back when you try to move up. Have you seen how small Wake Island is now??? they shrunk the fucking map!

    I find BC2 most excellent though providing you can get a good server, but most of the decent servers i used to frequent at have mostly been taken down so i dont even bother playing that anymore.

    You paid £400?

    It's nothing against the product i wouldn't mind owning it myself, it's just the price that i thought was slightly weird

    nope i did not. Nowhere near £400.

    that is stupidly expensive though, I wouldnt even consider buying it. Its even cheaper to buy the thing from a seller from Hong Kong on Ebay.

    That makes sense now

    If only shops told you how many of an object they'd sold, i'd love to see if anyone actually paid £400 for that

    High grade(1:144) is the cheapest of the lot :slap: You can get them for £10-15. Next step is the Real Grade(1:144), for about £20. Then Master Grade (1:100), anything from about £25 to £100. And then Perfect Grade(1:60), upwards of £100 to about £250.

    If you are going for Gundam Age kits, they sell for under £1 in Japan. Forums had the pic, but I dont have them.

    sorry my bad - I was on about master grades being £50-60ish

    I would very much like a few more perfect grades to my collection.
