350 quid?? er, no, u can get them for about 250 now, and even less on ebay

The difference between the 6800 ultra and the 7800 gtx is worrying small tho, why would anyone pay several hundred quid more for a 15fps difference, bearing in mind the human eye cant tell the difference between 95fps and 110fps, and the SLI performance is comical really

the best agp to get at the moment is a 6800 gt. easlity the best bang for your buck.

check overclockers or there weekly specials.

check this thread, but i think they have removed the 6800 gt from this week specials now.

I think theres a very resounding 'don't touch OcUK with a barge pole' feeling amongst a lot of the LANSE people, their support systems are non existant, id suggest using a price checker, Ive made a script that forwards you to 3 of the best: www.sencerd.co.uk/pricefinder - it works best on firefox

I've ordered a lot of kit from them over the years and never had a problem, no faulty goods, no hassle with customer services. In fact a couple of years ago I had placed an order online, when I realised I needed another component. It was on next day delivery. I called them at aboute 5.20 and the girl on the phone took my details - took the extra payment and then ran over to the warehouse to ensure that my order was changed. About 10.30 the next day it all turned up. Now that impressed me.

I'm sure some people have had problems, but from my experience they are a great place to shop.

A couple of years ago maybe, but now they have grown a lot, they sell way more than they are capable of supporting, apparently its still all run from a single shop, again I'm not sure of the specifics, but bigsteve (i think) will be able to enlighten you, if he ever reads these forums that is :P

probably true as every company goes though growing pains where the selling arm out strips the support arm.

dabs had it, dell had it, amazon had it.

they eventually get it right or go out of business eventually.

or there selling arm reduces to the size that the support arm can manage.

mmmm - well it may have been a couple of years ago that it happened, but I've placed plenty of orders since and not had any issues.

Maybe somebody doesn't like you, or my wit charm and stunning good looks, just gets me a better service
