    I am currently of the mind to theme my build a bit more. Half tempted to see if I can trade my Gigabyte 780 for an MSI gaming version with somebody, or even trade it for the MSI gaming 290. Also looking at replacing my cooler with the CM V10 GTS and removing the enermax fans (very kindly purchased from the54thvoid) and replacing them all with shiny corsair's which d1nky didn't want me to buy off of him!
    Anybody got some MSI Gaming cards they wanna trade? ;)

    That new avatar is awesome bro. Also it's been pretty quiet around here as of late, and I haven't been online all week on account of taking the week off and being poor until Friday. Then I went out for a meal and bought a shedload of hooch and waffles, and am now poor yet again.

    It's not so bad, get a car, then you'll be truly skint, then get a hosue/flat, then you'll be a sad man with £20 spare a month. Not so bad though, I'm a lot happier now I'm in the green and can afford a few nice meals out and whiskey during the course of a month.

    I am sceptical that they will be able to compete in price terms with companies such as Amazon, but hopefully they will...... I too agree about the rebate crap..... would rather have a 5% discount voucher (or something) off my next purchase.

    We've been discussing this this morning. I'm also pretty sceptical. They are going to have to compete with a hell of a lot more etailers here than in the US where they seem to reign supreme. Here we have at least a dozen very strong competitors. I don't buy GPU's from amazon though, as they tend to be badly priced compared to other etailers like Scan or OCUK. Amazon Prime is changing though, to £80 a year only, so you're forced to have LoveFilm. I use Netflix, which is far better than LoveFilm, and has some specific series only available on there. I don't like having services forced down my throat, so my Amazon Prime subscription is going to end and not be renewed. Newegg might bring their Premiere service with them, but we'll see if it actually makes financial sense over a year period.

    I'm stuck between Bit Defender & Kaspersky which would you go for and where's the cheapest place to buy either from?

    Avast, Avira or MSE. Never understood why people pay for AV anymore, in days past I used to pirate Bitdefender and ESET NOD32, but then I came around to being legitimate about everything, and didn't see why I should pay for AV when the free ones are just as good.

    If you're set on paying for AV for some reason, just check Amazon.

    It's not so much for me, but I've noticed a real difference in the rate of repairs I have since installing Kaspersky, obviously the repairs are usually virus related thus would like adequate protection to make my busy life that little less busy.

    Where on earth do you get viruses from? It's relatively impossible to get infected unless you click a ridiculous download button, download some pirated software/music/games that are mysteriously rar'd and passworded, or open spam email.
