    There are cheaper options for that screen size and resolution, and I have never used (or seen) Foehn and Hirsch. I would personally go for something cheaper, but that monitor is not too bad, just lacking Displayport (so is most in the market anyway).

    Only a 90Gb - I found it hard to justify spending £40 more on a 120Gb when I dont really need the extra space.

    And if the time comes that I eventually do, then I will put this 90Gb SSD into my laptop. but as it is - i still got about 30gb of free space on the SSD
     
    HUSKIE says thanks.

    Ebuyer - But i was looking around Novatech, Dabs and some other online stores before i decided to go and buy from Ebuyer.

    theres is a lot of fluctuation in the Price of my SSD and I have no idea why - Some sites are selling for over £150 but i got it for about £135 - I also saved a few quid on postage as i wasnt in a hurry to get it. I thought it would have arrived by last week friday but it only arrived today - so I had to wait about a week for it to come (4-5 working days my arse)

    Hmmmm..... I dont really think theres anything else in my system that really needs upgrading.....

    I got a Antec Quattro 850w lying around - But do note - it ATE 2 4870s and almost ate a Xonar D2X. so I just rigged it up to power a load of spare 120mm fans that I superglued together and use as a desk fan (got a bout 5 or 6 120mm fans linked up)

    you can have it for a few quid but if it eats your rig too - I take no responsibility

    My dad wants to buy my Logitech Z5500's for £20 - so i told him where to stick it :laugh:
    ----

    Nah he wants a good sound system for the new 37" HDTV downstairs and i mentioned that I might be willing to part with mine.

    gonna get myself a set of Onkyo HT-S5305B's

    But i wonder if the Sub on it is any good as the logitechs - it certainly looks a little smaller then the logitech one...

    Anyone got a gig of DDR1 and a ATA SATA HDD spare please? Need to get a rig going for my mate's Grandad to get on the net with. He said he'll pay for any parts, or (don't want to say I'd trade anything, but) if you donate to this rig, I might be able donate something to yours...

    EDIT: Just found it's SATA, I can't expect anyone to donate one, so I'll probably be making a WTB thread tomorrow (Tuesday).
