A little story for today. Last night I finally decided that my two month old motherboard is dead, probably something to do with it spending four days next to the sub boxes in my car. So I trip to Ebuyer (They are very cheap and great quality - take a look around) to get a new one - not the same one, I wanted a bit of an upgrade too, looking to spend around £60, definatly no more that £65 because I haven't got the spare cash at the moment. I finally choose this bad boy at £90. So I'm £25 over. Then I realise that I'm going to get charged £6 for shipping unless I spend another £10 to get the overall order up to £100. So I'm hunting about, and get a hard drive fan and a PCI board fan which bring the cost to £99.96. I'm 4p short - I need to find a product that costs 4p. What do I end up buying? This. Go figure =]
