Yea well not as bad as me, ordered an i5 yesterday and wont have a mobo until after Christmas!
After all this talk about upgrades I don't think I can hold out for the 6950/70 release. Anyone know when it's meant to be scheduled for? I'm inpatient, think I might OC the PCIe bus.
as you said we are always missed the postie and due to large package and i won't fit to our letter box... i have an idea i made the letter to the postie mail or else anD i sticked into my door like this!
to: post man
PLEASE KNOCK LOUDER PEOPLE UPSTAIRS
when i did this i've always beat the postie MAN....
dunno think they're due in Jan but expect to pay £250+
They were originally rumoured for the 29th of November. I've read some threads on different forums where they're discussing the price but f'ing launch date.
I doubt I'll be seeing the 6870 drop any lower than £170 as the 5870 is already around £180 on some sites. I must have been pretty drunk last night as I at one point, only for a few seconds mind, considered a MSI GTX460 Hawk then I vommed a load of sicky black tar like substance and then went back to looking at AMD cards.
random question what does DPD's parcel number look like?
Unfortunately I can't tell you as I haven't had DPD deliveries for a while. Check out their site, should tell you.
they dont tell you, i keep putting in the number and get nothing!
Hahaha the green team ain't that bad, been ATI for the last 3 years but I love my 470, all my games are smooth at 60fps with AA
I know there not that bad, but from personal experience and from having to change all our cards at from nVIDIA to ATi/AMD I'm stuck in my ways. Plus I have a strong hatred of nVIDIA and have done since the nForce 3/Code 43 malarkey.
nothing much really - new bluetooth headset and some new dust filters for my Antec 902 nothing really big I was supposed to have it by yesterday so delivery is already a day late - now its 4days late cuz i have to wait the weekend before i can go pick it up
Do I buy some upgrades before end of this year to avoid VAT increase, or do I wait untill this time next year when I KNOW i'll have loads of money to buy a whole new rig?
What upgrades are you planning on buying and do you really need a whole new rig?
If you need them (or thinking of upgrading) before Febuary, I think its better off buying now, whereas if you wait, the 2.5% rise will be counteracted by the fall in prices.
I think its more a case of - its too big to fit into their messenger bags properly with the rest of the other mail and rather have to take it out to deliver it and find out you're not in - they have to lug the box around until they finish their current stack of letters. so it never leaves the sorting office n they drop this little red card through your door asking you to go pick it up yourselfs.
it makes sense, but ive had packages where it COULD have fit through my letterbox but they didnt bother taking delivering it.
a trust me - ive done deliveries too so i understand how it is. but it still pisses me off
I wouldn't do it based on the VAT rise, you will save 2.5p in the pound if you buy now, hardly significant.
tatty_one I think, been a while since I have been on.
OMG was on ebuyer looking at cases and came across this one with an integrated 7" LCD on the front panel, check this review......... LMFA what a muppet
Black Aluminium Mid Tower Case with Integrated 7&q...
new graphics card, cpu, and motherboard, prob new RAM
not really much you know how companies always round up to the nearest 10p
Hence why i would like to buy my car insurance soon before VAT rise lols.
Well i can't wait for next week,specially monday when my SSD arrives and hopefully car insurance,christmas is coming my way maybe early.
I'm getting two SSDs too on Tuesday, here they are:
They have good capacity and great performance and from what I heard having these two babies in RAID 0 with AHCI should give some results of 500MB for read and write on CrystalDiskMark. I guess this might be the final upgrade for my current system.... might.
Oh god, what kind of idiot thinks you can use a low res auxiliary monitor instead of a regular one?!
Can just picture the muppet sat there with a bloody magnifying glass sqinting
That'd be a'ight for a media centre, looks badly made though.
Yea it does, looks nice outside though no cable management at all, not my taste.
