Thanks for the info, i dont know what sort of failures the returned ssd's had , i was just surprised when both shops actually 'sold' me out of handing over money.Does not happen much lol, so i thought, well these are the guys who are in the know.The two stores i get all of my bits from are probably the best i have found in Brissy regards price , availability and if the right guy is there , knowledge.
One bummer is i only have sata 2 on my board (Gigabyte h55m ud2h)so only 3gbs and its an 1156 board so i would need to upgrade (1155) to get sata @ 6gbs or get a sata upgrade card to get the benefit of the 6gbs.Upgrade of board then means new cpu as well..arggghh money! Should not have been a scab when i purchased my new board earlier in the year, well was not really a scab as my old board had died and i could not afford much at the time as i was buying ram,card, cpu and win7 as well.Damn budgets!
I might try again this weekend and see if can outwit him and force him make a sale , I will have to get the 6gbs option and then upgrade the rest around it..ooooh now, how do i swing this all this past the missus
Edit: on the plus side i just scored 2 by 24" monitors that were floated off in the flood of January , we cleaned them all up (had six running at a workstation with all of ouir jobs for the day across the screens in a 2 by 3 setup) and they have been working fine for the last 2 months.The boss has updated that system and i put my hand up for the monitors.Scored three all up and gave one to a mate who only had a 19" at home.So i will need to upgrade if i want to use them anyway.Looks like an sli capable board will be the go down the track but thats looking a bit far ahead atm.Especially when i looked at the prices for the 580 cards.Holy.
Would love a triple screen setup though.Maybe they will have CloD optimised by the time i have the money
