Most reasonable warranty conditions ? Club3D vs Powercolor vs VTX3D ? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thanks for the fast reply Carniflex smile.gif

Having done a load more Google searches, emailed numerous customer service / sales enquiry addresses, and live chatted with most of the suppliers in the UK, I now know that there is ONE company that currently has stock of these cards in the UK..... the catch is that the stock isn't in the UK!!

The best things about the company I have just discovered are:

1) They have a good price on the Club3D card - currently at £245.06 inc VAT - the best price I had found previously was £239.xx, but this was out of stock.

2) They are willing and able to haggle on the price of the monitors. This now means that they will be the cheapest for the monitors as well - current best price is £168.58 per monitor from PC World Business - I will be quite happy not to give PC World any of my hard earned money!!!

3) By fluke, this company have their warehouse less than 20 minutes from my home. They are also willing to let me collect the order once they have received it all from their EU warehouses, which should save some time on shipping (the shipping would be free, but the delivery drivers round my way would almost certainly drop / crush the order, so I would probably end up RMA'ing some of the items which would really annoy me!).

In case anyone finds this thread on a Google search and is wondering, the company that I am probably about to buy all this stuff from is Systo - Talk to them on Live Chat and they seem to be able to source most things and potentially haggle on the price.

Even though they dropped the price of the monitors pretty easily, they couldn't beat eBuyer on 3 metre mini DP to DP cables in BLACK! The white cables seem to be common as muck, but I am about to spend over £1000 on black monitors, to hang in a neat 3 x 2 array on a £200 monitor mount system and plug into a new £250 graphics card - I don't think it is so unreasonable to want the cables to match the monitors!!!

I will update this thread to let you know if I do proceed with the order from Systo. I might also post a picture once it is all set up as I suspect (and hope!) that it will look f**king amazing!!

As a final thought (for now!) - Do you think it is fair to define yourself as a super geek when it takes you more than 3 weeks, and costs over £1250 just to upgrade your monitors!? I think it is important to remember that most "average" home computer users nowadays could buy 3 fairly respectable "ready to go" home PCs for that amount and still have enough money left over for a pretty good night out!!

Well, in my opinion display(s), mouse and keyboard are the things you actually interact with your PC so if you use the PC significant amount of time these would need to be good. Besides, good display will last one substantially longer than good computer. Now screen real estate, its pretty nice in some games allowing you see more and in some application it increases you effectivity substantially, CAD, for example or writing code so you have code in one screen and debug info on another and so on. As far as Eyefinity goes I personally don't really like 6 screen one as in the middle there will be "bezel between your eyes" horizontally - I prefer 3 or 5 screen one oriented in portrait as that way nothing splits your crosshair in FPS games.
