i couldn't reserve it as it was some new combined store of pc world n currys's. god knows why tho. it proppa did my nut in when i got there tho as there wasn't a single pc component in sight. the first person i found that worked there just said motherboards here? he had to go into the stores website to find it lol but i got it in the end. lucky tho as they only had 2. so 2moz i'll get stuck in. i just hope the cpu is ok.
im a happy bunny now lol as ive had my eye on this board for quite a while but could't justify another upgrade to the mrs lol.

Good job and well done, ganjiry. But, just to let you know, I haven't been able to justify my last 7 or 8 upgrades to the MRS. Don't worry, they get over it. lol.
