    I am not the 1st to sing overclockers praises however i gotta admit they have had some..... i wont say great, but definitely the best out there right now....... offers on gps lately.

    they ran out of stock over the weekend but they have had 1080ti for £689 in stock for 4 or 5 days.

    2 weeks back they had the fantastic inno 3D X3 chill in stock for £749.

    Also i have 2 mates who had NV cards from over clockers fail on them and they both got fairly significant upgrades as replacments.

    better than ebuyer who i believe only give partial refunds out if they cant do like for like warranty swapouts.

    I have to admit the recent drop in graphics card prices has me tempted. It was 900ish for a 1080ti /vega64 only a few months ago.

    Headset is good but keyboard, not so sure about that.

    EDIT: Looked into the keyboard and gets good reviews but is missing certain nice features. Currently have a Microsoft X6 but looking for a new headset so this might be a good one as keyboard and headset for not much more than the headset itself.

    Steelseries headsets I like and have an old pair of Siberia wired which are starting to crackle and pop from the cable being wound up so many times over the years.

    Don’t forget 20% off the warehouse deals.
    You can get some amazing deals on monitors doing it that way.

    Corsair 850 Watt RM850x Fully Modular ATX Power Supply/PSU

    Pretty good price at Scan for this power supply. Think it's being discontinued soon but doesn't stop it being a damn good bit of kit. Cheaper than the 750 watt equivalent, silent most of the time until it's under heavy load. Just ordered mine..

    I have the exact same PSU and it's a superb piece of kit, highly recommended to anyone needing 850 watts of power. The fully modular design makes cable management a piece of cake getting all those cables nice and neat in your case.

    I can honestly say in the year or so I've had this PSU I have never heard the PSU fan, so a great addition for those who like a near silent rig.

    Acer Predator X34P is £639.99 at eBuyer. I'm pretty tempted but it'll be the most expensive monitor I've ever bought and I still can't decide if I want to go the ultrawide route. Anyone got this and able to recommend? :)

    Was too late. Bank stopped my purchase because they thought it was suspicious activity. By the time it was sorted they were all gone. :(

    Shame.

    Probably at some point this week Amazon will do their 20% off warehouse deals again.
    When that happens buy the monitor then. That's how I got mine. The description normally says there are scratches etc, but there never are. It's just a return. My Asus monitor I saved at least £100, maybe more actually, doing it this way.

    Great price, very fast drive, I use the 500GB version as my game drive.

    This offers back, now even cheaper, three for £9.50:-

    CORSAIR 140MM 14CM ML140 GREY FINS PWM HIGH PERFORMANCE COOLING BRUSHLESS FAN | eBay

    won't last long. (You don't get any screws , just three fans in a jiffy bag).
