post #31 of 37
right...so you had to rma and it took a month? Id assume it takes 3-4 days to post, 3-4 days to test, then week or so to send out a new one?

I dont get why people say OCUk is so bad, is it cos of thier prices or bad experiences? Personally i;ve never had any issues with them, always accepted rma's when ive asked to swap for something else etc.
I've heard a ton of people who have had bad experiences with them. I've also heard some people (like you, of course) who say that they've never had a problem with them but honestly the majority of people seem to have had problems with them.

Their prices are OK, and sometimes their sale prices are great (that 5850 I linked earlier was around £120 at one point ), but their delivery prices are annoying. I get free delivery on Scan thanks to a deal/offer with AVForums.

And I would get a GTX 460 but I decided to opt for overall OS performance rather than just gaming performance, so I'm getting an SSD.

Ahh fair one! I recommend the ocz vertex 2 60gb drive or the corsair c300, seem to be amongst the fastest for the price atm

Yep, got my eye on the Vertex 2 60GB for £89 delivered from eBuyer (checkout code "XMAS"). Just need to pay some Christmas money into my account, bank opens tomorrow/later today
