    So I got a package from Amazon today (woo) contains 2 out of the 3 items. Said I ideally wanted the last item by tomorrow morning. Its the graphics card which is missing out of the package. So they're doing a pre-9am delivery for tomorrow with the graphics card. I am actually pretty chuffed considering! Thats good service, even if it is their mistake.

    As for the gear Neph, that should keep you running for a while. I get my new card on Friday, can't wait
    I love my RAT5 - kinda regret getting it in Red though now... Thought I'd try and match it with my keyboard backlight and fan LEDs. I think they look like any gaming mouse should really. A bit wacky!

    @nephilim. Do you have your graphics card yet? If not, Amazon are currently selling an R9 290X OC for 223.30. It normally costs 450+ elsewhere!

    www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00H5LEIG4



    I hope they honour the price since I've just ordered one.

    @Arthur alas no, fortunes conspired against me on getting the graphics card, so it had to be sent back

    But next month should be good!

    I'll build you an equivalent spec for $23,500 this week if that's too long?

    @Arthur, just a heads up, this is a R9 280X not the R9 290! Just so you know

    That's fishy - I followed @Arthur's link earlier and it was to a Sapphire 290X as shown, but going there now it's a VTX3D 280X and the item is under review "because a customer recently told us that the item he or she received was not as described."

    Probably just as well you didn't order it!
