    Thank you, Joker. Yes, I do like to shop around, even if it does get a little out of hand at times. ;-)

    At the time I bought my ASUS board, the price hike had already come into effective and all the other places I visited were selling them for around R1800+.

    Selling one's old kit does go some way towards cushioning the damage to one's bank balance. ;-)

    I think the most I ever spent on a PC was R12 000 for the one I had assembled for myself for my 30th birthday. [This was before I had the confidence to pick my own components and put a PC together on my own.]

    You or your parents?
    Am I mistaken to think that you are 16 or something?

    So much for "Poor Students"


    Back when I bought my beautiful Samsung 22 inch LCD, I remember seeing the same model at Incredible Connection for around R1000 more. I think that place might go out of business if pople were better informed.
