    "Shitty" Link are the worst couriers ive personally used.
    Royal Mail on the other hand are decent, depends where you live but the price to quality of delivery is not bad compared to like UPS where the price is extremely rip off.

    EDIT: HDNL got a spot on watchdog on BBC for missing delivery times and claiming they delivered but no one was in.

    Still looking for breakfast... Bought Weetabix Chocolate. Never going to fall for that trap again, chocolate mint with extra sugar or not.

    I have been eating crunchy nut for the past 2 months. Problem is that it gives me midday crash, so I started to look for alternatives with less sugar.

    Pffft! Cereal. It's all about the Fry Up!

    Cumberland sausages, 2 fried eggs, baked beans, fried mushrooms, black pudding, bacon, fried tomatoes and some fried bread!

    This. Add a cup of coffee, put the lot in a polystyrene takeaway box, and it's called a "breakfast in a box" for £3.50!!! Killer price, and it's only at the end of my road! I've never been so happy!

    So got some nice goodies in the mail today, only took the best part of a week but to City Links detriment they did redeliver for a 4th time when I called my local depot :rockout:

    I have a brand spanking new i5 760 and an OCZ Fatal1ty 750w PSU, also got a nice big NH-U12P SE2 that I bought off Rado_D :rockout:

    Now, my current rig consists of the following: (Have removed HDD's as keeping these)

    NZXT M59
    M4A79XTD-EVO
    PII 550 (unlocked BE 3.6Ghz)
    Arctic Freezer Pro Rev2
    4Gb Geil DDR3 1333
    320Gb Seagate
    Corsair HX 520w

    My question is, should I sell my current rig as a whole when I get the rest of my parts or part it out?

    Am thinking selling it as a whole, add an GPU and you have a pretty sweet gaming rig, any thoughts? :D
