    True, but their RMA service could be better. It's piss poor for Canadians as you have to ship your card to the US for service (getting hit by import fees every, damn, time).

    That so? Sucky. I mainly go for MSI GPUs if I'm buying Nvidia, and Sapphire or HIS if I'm buying Radeon.

    Yep. Luckily the local Gigabyte reseller is close by, so any issues I have with their products I can return directly to them.. if within the 30 days timeline. After that, if anything goes wrong with a clients Gigabyte motherboard or video card, clients have to deal with Gigabyte for RMA (Gigabyte uses UPS for all returns, both ways, and UPS loves to charge brokerage fees regardless of the fact that it's an RMA'd product).

    Good to know, will avoid Gigabyte from now on, I know their Aorus mobos are crap anyway.

    This one is from Scan and it is a REFURBISHED drive. Priced @ £77 with free P&P. This is usually £104.98 with a £5.89 Postage charge for a new drive.

    The 1TB equivalent is £175.98 with a £5.98 Postage fee.

    Two Reasons.

    1) The price difference were to high just for double the space.
    2) My current M.2 drive (Which is my windows Drive) is only 256GB and is only a little over 3qtrs full...I only install the most used stuff on there.

    I don't see the need for 1TB windows drive.

    If you don't need the extra space, then saving money is quite sound.

    Luckily so far I have perfect history with Gigabyte products so I would stick (as I have) to Gigabyte even if I had worse support situation. As long as they don't ignore or refuse to support you because they can. *cough* XFX, EVGA *cough*.

    Got the ebook version of this off of Amazon today, can't wait to dive in:

    And for my controllers (since I stepped on my controller cable and messed up the connector of one of my only two cables):

    Oh, beautiful cables. I am looking to buy a few long cables myself, about 2m, not as much choice if you don't want black or white cables for reasonable price.

    How is the situation with shipping from Aliexpress in Greece? With a little bit of digging through the ones with a higher order count, you should be able to find the right design, length and performance. :) I think that various cables and adapters make up the bulk of my orders from China, as I often find such trivial things ridiculously difficult to source locally, even a simple micro or USB type C cable that doesn't suck (slow charging, often accompanied with the cables not supporting data transfer at all, is the norm and any length that's not 1-1.3m is super rare, let alone specific colours). Anything more exotic (e.g. a front panel bracket that goes to a 3.5" bay and has USB3 and front panel audio) - without China, you're often completely out of luck.

    That's what I want to do. Have a cable same or similar color/design with the device it is connected to. Easy to locate, etc.

    I don't feel comfortable buying from them.

    And another Mike Bithell short (a video game)...

    Edit: @Tipstaff I saw you have The Solitaire Conspiracy on your wish list on Steam, definitely recommend it, I finished it earlier, the campaign was so worth it...

    As i have said in the past, with my old man has Alzheimer's.. And with my whole family and with the help of a care package in place.

    We have cameras in place outside and Indoors. Via The Hive.

    2.jpg

    These over the last year has been a pain in the arse to use efficiently, Constantly having to close the app re-sign in to keep a eye on my old man to make sure he is ok... Being Prone to falls etc etc...

    Now it is time to upgrade to the Hive View..

    1.jpg
    Now this will hopefully be much better (And this will now only use one single APP) that also host my exterior cameras i have around the house...

    Just wanting to make sure this works much better @ £155 a camera before hand....Before i replace the Staircase & the one in the kitchen.

    I am going to regret it (financially), but frak it.

    Nice.

    I'm a huge rally fan myself. I managed to get a copy of WRC 8 for $10, and Steam had Dirt Rally 2.0 on sale for 75% off which I couldn't pass up.

    I think the last WRC I played was 4. I liked it, I even completed a career for my youtube channel. Fun game.
    I have the first DiRT Rally, I think I haven't played it yet.
