    Still got the GTX 780 to go, the SSD, the Monitor, the case, the PSU. Nobody seems interested in the monitor AT ALL. And cases and monitors are a pain in the ass to ship...
    Gonna be slow from here I think. Not to mention Ebuyer has said bugger all about at least sending my second GTX 780 back so I can solder it myself. If my money situation picks up, and I sell everything except the GPU, I'll hook it up to my new rig with the CM Eisberg. Sure it'll be a waste though xD

    EDIT: OH! I have a fucking cello to sell. If anyone knows somebody that wants to buy a £800 cello for half price xD

    couldn't you refund the new 780, youre still within 30days?!

    if I start making enough money soon, ill definitely have that monitor and maybe case if its still around. but thatll be a few weeks, which I hope for you its sold by then.

    thinking about it, ill buy all my stuff from forums to mod and sell, just for practice and to get known.


    heres a rant: its freshers for 2 weeks of noisy uni kids drinking and drinking! I live between 3 student blocks, and town! my nights were noisy before but this is another level of drunken (some nasty swear words, beginning with F, C, S, B....)

    Taken the cooler off :D Id rather sell it with the block anyway, make a fair bit of money.

    Yeah for sure, I know you wanted that kind of monitor.

    Oh yeah, my town isnt full of freshers students, just a lot of underage students and old timers and scum who are drunk 24/7. That being said it seems the nurse has finished with me, havent spoken to her in days, she heads back out in a week, ah well, good things come to a swift end eh?

    With any luck some rich classical musician will buy this cello, then I wont have to worry about everything getting sold as soon as. It might allow me to keep whatever parts are left from my selling spree, PSU could be useful!

    In other news I bought my first 20 pack of cigarettes today in like, 3 years. Did snuff 2 years ago and then packed in altogether. Now it just feels like a pleasant past-time while I read my books (bugger all else to do).

    She's not even going back for another week. And she literally lives the road over from me. I'd go and see her, but as a point of fact I dont think she wants me to xD

    While your plans may be flawless in planning, I think I will pass gracefully. :toast:

    Maybe when I reach a watershed moment of my life sometime at the end of this year, for now I'm going to sit back and vegetate until everything is back to normal :laugh:

    Trifire would be pretty cool, always wanted to try it with 7950's. If you sell your 8350 anytime soon I may be interested for my back to basics system.
    My end of year plans are to be at least halfway through writing this damned book. 20000 words so far, probably another 100000 to go.

    Oh so shaniqua in the post office was right. I'll be damned.
    I was going to find your name on Facebook, but I was at work and couldnt be bothered so I made up a stately name for you xD
    If you have trouble picking it up (I'm sure if they see your second name on ID they'll know it was a joke) just give me a call. I have my proof of delivery and can give them the number over the phone.

    EDIT: It's addressed to a Damien first name so I think they'll get the picture.

    I hate waiting for my post, I figured everyone else did too. Unfortunately I've got to send Marsey's via ParcelForce, and I packed it inside an ergonomic hoover box, so I imagine he'll get in a state of confusion when the donkey parcelforce guy drops it on his doorstep.
    "I didnt order a hoover o_O My name isnt Monty Marsey!"
