I've bought far too much the past few days, my wallet hates me :(

Bruce lee figures, Death Note Anime figures and three different releases of FF VIII for PS1 including a New and sealed UK Platinum release.

70 for that. Not eligible for free shipping, and the shipping that I paid for wasn't even next day.
It is now on the grubby floor of the Starbucks that i'm in.

God damn it, Apple.

Nice, i've been thinking about getting an Ouroboros, not sure if it's worth the extra 30 over the R.A.T though.

alienware 18-05-13 12:34 PM

Lots for me !

First up the KBM arrived for my Lapdesk project. I was quite surprised at how nice the quality is. It's really heavy and the keys feel really solid and are whisper quiet. You'll also see the Dyson belts as I had to repair our vacuum cleaner this morning :lol:

As well as these :D

Karma, dude..

BTW do you know a place called Hoddesdon? I'm sure that's what it's called.. One of my friends lives there and my fiancee delivered a cat there once :)

Will do. It'll be a couple of weeks now sadly as funds have all gone into the parts to get the rig back up and running.

Zoot 18-05-13 07:47 PM

I got one of these this week:

Annoyingly though, my ISP decides to have a "fault" in my area all this week. I can't do much by way of installing Windows without an internet connection. :rolleyes:

It is indeed. I figured I wasn't really going to notice the difference between this and the more expensive PRO version.

What'd that request be?

I also just picked up a 120gb 840, and I also can't do anything with it, due to virgin media being retarded. Crazy coincidence ^_^

could you if i screenshot the settings i use, record a video using afterburner while gaming onto the SSD i wanna see if the non pro version can handle the write speed, im looking at picking another SSD up and i can go for a bigger capacity for the same money unless i need the pro then i drop down a tier!

barnsley 19-05-13 05:08 PM

I part traded a bum tonne of bike parts and my old dell case for the bike in the middle (A ribble Dolan special). I couldn't resist it. Look, it is even a halfway house in terms of wheel colors :D.

:lol:

I had nothing but problems with Virgin Media when I used to live in Edinburgh a few years ago. My current ISP is pretty good in comparison, a good solid 100Mbs speed for about 2 years now, hopefully this doesn't become frequent.

Yeah no problem! As soon as I get my internet back and Windows 7 up and running on it, that is. :p

I'm replacing my z77x ud5h with it.
I got it mainly for thunderbolt support, but I get other benefits too.

Sounds like fun mate. I live right on the coast so lakes are very scarce :( there is one in Arundel though that I've been to a couple of times :)

I mainly fish from the beach but it's against a wall so you don't need any tripods or anything like that. Catch mostly bass and doggies :)

Not been for ages tbh but am definitely getting ready for the summer :)

Neither lol
Well i will be using it for storage at some point.

I don't upgrade my rig often and i wanted to future proof it as much as i can. The old board i have i bought around christmas time. I wanted this one but it was too expensive back then. Now it's dropped by a fair chunk so i'm returning the old one and having this one. XD

But Haswell launches in a couple of weeks :confused:

Ah well, I guess if you got the money to support such a habit then just go with Christ, bra.

The green bike actually functions as a semi bmx at the mo'. It was a track bike at some point in it's life but as the frame was quite cheap to start with (think the eqivilent of 1980's tesco own brand racer) It needed a lot of work to become atleast vaguely competitive so I built a stunt bike :D.

Mmmmm Pearsons ^_^.

Finally got my internet back, and I installed Windows 7 on the SSD last night using the AMD AHCI drivers.

I haven't run any benchmarks but the difference between the mechanical drive is night and day even if this isn't the fastest SSD around. Really fast boot times, installation times and all my apps launching pretty much instantly.

The only thing I did do is run the Windows Experience Index which jumped up to 7.9 for the primary disk.

@MrKambo
Start a thread in the Storage section and I'll see what I can do regarding your request. :p

alienware 21-05-13 10:11 AM

Once you go SSD you never go back...

Welcome aboard the revolution !
