Where are you from originally?
Huskie is from the philippines
Yeah Where the 20ish typhoons hits our country every year.=-O
I wish I got hit by 20 Gentle Typhoons.
In other news, things got rather more serious last night than anticipated. The nurse is currently in the process of deciding whether she wants to be my ball and chain it seems. We did have a great night though!
I'm going to start throwing components on Ebay to open up to more people (obviously at a higher price), I've managed to get my APU system to a neat cost of £550
Nice to hear that you are getting some love. How far is her uni?
You might want to keep the Force 120 too, unless you are planning to upgrade. Or one of the harddisks, unless you are getting a SSHD.
May I know what is in your APU?
She's only in Nottingham, and she's back on weekends. She's still making her mind up on the situation though, so I'm not expecting anything.
I'm going to roll with a single 256GB SSD, enough room for windows, office, documents, and 2 or 3 games, so I'm not fussed about keeping anything else, I have a file server I can remote into where i store all my tv shows, films, music and "alternative horse pictures".
Going for a 6800K as I still intend to play CS:GO
I've got an extra thick EK rad spare and plenty of tubing and fittings, so I jumped on the CM Eisberg.
Ill take 840 EVO: http://www.amazon.co_uk/dp/B00E391OX6/?tag=tec053-21
Amazon sells their 6800K cheaper too.
Could just save a few quid by going with an A10-5800K and just overclocking it. there is very little performance gap between the two
IIRC both the 6800K and 5800K doesn't clock much higher than the boost, maybe 10% at most. Not sure if its worth the hassle and heat.
I've seen a 6800K OC'd to 4.9Ghz (4.6Ghz on stock voltages or 1.45v on a bad day) on that Gigabyte motherboard using a H100. Also I have Amazon Prime, but I dont believe the 6800K is eligible for it, and I'd rather buy all from one store to save money (I'm unsure if ordering the Sammy and 6800K from Amazon and paying for postage is cheaper than ordering it all from OCUK(AND getting it all at the same time))
Yup, 840 evo is a tad faster but the plextor has an excellent reliability rating from reviewers. Similar prices.
Well that's it, Marsey99 has started the buying, so the rig will officially be out of commission as of tonight. Not going to buy my new rig until everything has sold and all debt is paid off. Looks like I'll be using my emergency laptop from now on to do things. I sure hope this all doesnt take months -_-
go spend more time with the nurse. get her to kiss your ouchies
No, get her to bang on his sphericals until they're ouchies and then kiss them better.
6800K comes with one day delivery from Amazon if you are interested.
Well I've got a long time before I can buy anything
I've only managed to sell the W/C kit so far!
Once you sell your 780 you will have enough money to get everything together.
If it actually sells. And I'd rather pay off my credit card and get into positive figures before I buy anything else.
Looks like Ebuyer dont want to RMA my card, guess I'm going to need an inductor from NVidia.
what a bunch of assholes
They asked for the transcripts and I've sent them, though I will simply assume that after they contact Gigabyte, they will just refuse as Gigabyte did despite NVidia's help.
They cancelled the RMA and then opened it up again, pending the situation of the conversations.
Well, No doubt Gigabyte will block the RMA, Only difference here is its a retailer looking over their shoulder and not an Nvidia rep themselves.
I guess this is what counts as customer service these days
Burning the windows 7 disk now, then I'm off to work to dismantle this bitch.
EDIT: Everything is now on Fleabay for slightly inflated prices because of the ebay 10% cut -_-
Tempted by the £240 7970 from OcUK, for WIP II
