Biggest single purchase I've ever made and the reason why I've not had the funds to do a PC upgrade. Sure, I could have gone for the 65 inch variant, but I wanted the biggest/baddest offering.

Covid has meant I'm working from home and I've saved quite a bit as a result.

Since it supports GSYNC and FreeSync I'll end up hooking a PC to it at some point.

So these are the wheels I bought for my car after cracking two of the old ones on a pot hole.


I went with 17's because I didn't think I would be able to get 18's on it, turns out the 18's would fit


I also bought the BMW centre cap's for them to use instead of the ones that came with them.


Tyres are 225/45 Continental Premium Contact 6 all round.


Wheels are 17" Autec Kitano (Type K) 17 x 7.5" 5x120 ET32 on the Front and 17 x 8.0" 5x120 ET34 on the Rear.



Not to bad for £890 all in and then an old car stereo to my brother that was collecting dust for fitting them as I don't have a jack.




Need to get the car cleaned and detailed but that is going to have to wait till I get paid, as I can wash it myself I have all the stuff but it needs a good cut and machine polish.



Pic's of Old wheels and the new ones.

Was on sale. Not that I don't like the Byski of course, the temps are just not fantastic (and the Byski was less than £30 when I got it).

Also on sale were these.



So I bought four. I will explain why in the build thread later.

Kingston G4 128gb picked up 2 of these they hold a decent chunk most likely slow to write onto but nevermind once it's on them it'll just go pop one day down the line lol



Also picked up the 4th mass effect game, it was super cheap and some vape supplys just hope they get here more quickly than last time around

I shouldn't have these but a few at a time won't hurt :P



I mean they boil'd sweets they should keep well

Putting the new sound system on hold for a bit. I forgot how cold it gets in winter, so I got some winter clothing.







Now I can buy something I totally don't need.

Went on a bit of a Kingston splurge at the local nerd store today, picked up a new HyperX RGB keyboard, mouse, and very large 900x420mm mouse mat, very much liking this kit!








New man cave is shaping up, just in time for winter. Thankfully I have a Threadripper rig with a pair of 1080TIs that I can use as a very effective space heater!
