  1. Sooooooooo, all Vega 64s sold out on OCUK in well under an hour. They had over 1000 of them in stock, allegedly.
  2. 2007 was a drunk ebay PC buy - I didn't even remember about it until it arrived at my door. CPU: Q6600 Mobo: Asrock something (it was really crap) Memory: 4gb (probably crucial) DDR2 GPU: I think it had a 7100 or something in it for a short while before I put an 8800 GTX in it. I still have the 8800 around somewhere and it still worked last time it was used, possibly even the original card. HDD: Hitachi Deskstar (400gb I think it was/is - I still have it and it works although not in my PC anymore as of about 3 months ago) DVDRW: It had one and I still have it around somewhere - it was IDE if I remember correctly Display: 22" Samsung 1080p widesscreen. Still works. OS: Windows Vista either ultimate or pro. It definitely wasn't home.
  3. I buy it, from Amazon if I ever need it. There are valid keys from Germany for Win 10 on it for minimal amounts.
  4. Depends on what area you live, from the look of it. It is fine to remove it in the EU as per MSI's post below. https://www.facebook.com/msiuk/posts/652634514773229
  5. Sounds about right, I would have said max of 800 if you wanted to sell it relatively quickly
  6. Well, at least stock shouldn't be much of an issue, anyway from the look of it. Overclockers apparently have over 1k of the various amounts in stock. Orders begin somewhere between 12pm & 2pm (UK time - most likely about 2pm) on Monday essentially. https://forums.overclockers.co.uk/threads/18789296/
  7. lol, i scroll wheeled down and it landed on the TR 1440p and I was... that's not a bad scale.... then I looked up at the TR 1080...... Why!
  8. Condoms & food, it's all a 1st year needs.
  9. Came here to post pretty much this. Intel, you can thank us both later, when your SKU lines aren't unnecessarily complex Celeron 2/2 Pentium 2/4 i3 4/4 i5 6/6 i7 6/12 i9 8+/16+
  10. I've added a few more notes to this in the attached. Try an not use capital letters when it shouldn't be used. I think I noticed most of them, but may have missed some so worth double checking (this is one of the few grammar things that actually irritates me). There are a few sentence structure/wording changes I've suggested, not sure if you want to use them. I even withheld comment on the N. American spelling of aluminium!!!!.

  11. You're not wanting much storage space then??? The R5 1600 is about 20 quid more than the i5 you want, and motherboards are about a fiver more for a B350 one, so for 25 quid more you can have a much better system. Also, for either system, I would recommend at least 8gb of ram these days if you're actually going to do anything with the system.
  12. At A-Level (16-18) in my high school the split was approx 40% female to 60% male in the IT course. When I went to Uni, out of approximately 350 people doing the various computer/software/networking 1st year courses (they were all basically the same for the 1st year) there were a grand total of 6 females. About 30-40% of the professors I had were female though, and the Uni overall was about 70% female students. Personally, I would just hire who the best person for the job was, as long as they didn't come across as a complete dick on an easily identifiable payscale (e.g. You get X amount basic + if you have X skill you get % more + if your have other X skill/responsibility you get y % more on top of basic).
  13. The US ones are below. Apparently the rest of the world gets slightly different games and nobody else from what I've heard gets the monitor discount. Depending on where you get them from, they will ship to the Netherlands. Radeon Red Pack: $499 USD Radeon RX Vega 56 Air Cooled edition + $200 discount on Samsung XX FreeSync monitor + Wolfenstein® II: The New Colossus™ and Prey® ($120 value) + $100 discount on Ryzen 7 1800x processor + x370 motherboard combo* Radeon Black Pack: $599 USD Radeon RX Vega 64 Air Cooled edition (Black shroud or Limited Edition Silver shroud) + $200 discount on Samsung XX FreeSync monitor + Wolfenstein® II: The New Colossus™ and Prey® ($120 value) + $100 discount on Ryzen 7 1800x processor + x370 motherboard combo* Radeon Aqua Pack: $699 Radeon RX Vega 64 (Liquid Cooled edition) + $200 discount on Samsung XX FreeSync monitor + Wolfenstein® II: The New Colossus™ and Prey® ($120 value) + $100 discount on Ryzen 7 1800x processor + x370 motherboard combo* https://gaming.radeon.com/en-us/rx-vega-radeon-packs/
  14. I went travelling for 4 months through Oz, NZ, Fiji & the US and bought a new Tag watch in duty free near the beginning. I kept it in a green fabric grocery bag for the entire time in dorms, it wasn't stolen - my cheap ass headphones that came with my phone at the time were though, from the same bag...
  15. You can get the 580 8gb <£300 brand new from one of the major computer online stores (yes, that is still more than it should be). You just need to go to their forums to find the voucher code to take off the mining inflator price on their website - also, it is limited to 1 per order if I remember correctly. Edit: NM, the voucher expired 31st July, but was valid for over a month.
