We're too used to hearing 2-3 day experiences of the majority and I guess my teddies went out of the cot when I saw March 13th !!!! But despite the initial delay and the brief hiccup at the end, just over a week ain't bad really !
Problem is now I'm wondering whether I need to upgrade my main rig. It's relatively long in the tooth but ought to be up to handling games from a few years back. I'm not a hardcore gamer but would like to try the first Crysis games etc. I'm currently running an Athlon II x4 635 Black Edition with 12GB RAM and a 240GB SSD but I've only got a 1GB Nvidia EVGA 650Ti.
I'm rather tempted by the AMD R9 270x and 280x's though. I've never dropped over 220 notes on a graphics card before ! Eeeek Any thoughts? I understand they're just rebranded versions of previous cards with a price drop to sweeten the deal. Aria have a Sapphire R9 280x 3GB with £40 off @ £229 at the moment.
Perhaps I need to slow down a bit. I've already bought the Qnix, Two dual bracket VESA mounts (not bad @ £70 for a pair delivered from Amazon), the Display port to Dual link DVI adapter to run the Qnix from the laptop (which I picked up used on eBay for 24.50 delivered), and two USB to DVI external adapters for £50 for a pair again from eBay (again I'm hoping to run the 3 monitors from the Latitude 6510 docking station.
And all because I innocently bumbled on to this forum !!! You guys should be ashamed, making me spend money like this !
