YES! The PWNAGE-O-MATIC!
It’s the name of my new PC. I’m gonna order the components tonight at some point, I have to, cuz then I get free delivery on the CPU, Heatsinker and PSU, which’ll save me about £10. Cuz I have to get these parts from 3 different places.
I decided to change the motherboard back to a Striker II Formula, because the other one that I picked had some really crappy reviews about it not working at all. Which doesn’t really help. And the only other motherboard that I can get is so close in price to the Striker that I just ignored it and went with the Striker.
I took out Norton because I don’t think it included a subscription, and I’ll probably be getting Norton 360 from PC World at some point. I won’t connect to the internet unless I have SOME sort of advanced protection.
Overall, it’s £1,180.52. The annoying thing is I have NO IDEA how the price got that high, sure, I added an extra £40 for the motherboard and £50 for the keyboard, and £25 for the speakers… okay. I know how now.
ANOTHER annoying thing is that my EMA hasn’t come through for some reason, so my Mum + Dad have to loan me an extra £30, which puts their loan to me WAY higher than I wanted it to be, about £400. If I get it now though, then I won’t have to compete with others to get parts, because computer parts are just so god-damned popular! Two days ago, the CPU I wanted was in stock, 5 or more it said. The next day, they were SOLD OUT! See what I mean? And it wasn’t even over 24 hours, I stopped looking at about 9:00 PM, and the next day at 2:00 PM, they had SOLD OUT! And this is just the UK we’re talking about!
Oh, and I changed my case. That black and red one wasn’t interesting when you looked at some better pics of it, but I found one cheaper that looks friggin’ great! The NZXT Apollo is about £20 cheaper and has one less fan, but looks so much cooler! Shame that you still have to put up with that horrible side window. I’d cover it up, but, ah… there’s a fan there. So I can’t. Meh.
Right, so when I order it, I’ll be back here telling ya! For now, bye bye!
