If I was you try and stay away from cpl online they have really bad reviews.( like 85% are 1 star). I would recommend buying from pccasegear they have far better reviews (like 80% 5 star). But really it's up to you.

Its when dragons have so much sex that the cpu cant handle it

That's just the suggestions im buying all my parts from pccasegear as it is 15 minutes away from where i live and i can pick it up instead of paying for shipping,

I 100% agree with you on that. PCCG FTW! I'm planning to get my build parts from them when I can afford to do my build. :)

I've actually had several chats with one of the staff of PC Case Gear. He's very polite and extremely helpful. He goes out of his way to answer all my questions. I'm surprised that he hasn't told me to bugger off yet. Very professional and good place to buy from. I've actualy have bought 3 things from them. Stuff is wrapped in a bucket load of bubble wrap to protect your order during shipping. :)


ON A 7 MONTH BREAK FROM THESE LTT FORUMS. WILL BE BACK ON NOVEMBER 5th.
