Post subject: a stroke of Luck ?

Hi all,

As you know I have ordered a new rig and was awaiting notice as to when I could go round the puttershop to pick it up Smile

Today I got a phonecall from the puttershop, that some customer cancelled a system and was similar to what I had ordered,
so the question was IF I was interrested AND also that I could get it for the same price as the system what I had ordered Surprised

this is what they offered :

mobo~ ASUS Striker II Extreme
CPU~Intel Core2 Quad Q9300 s775
CPU Cooler~Scythe Mugen CPU Cooler
RAM~4Gig Team eXtreem DARK RAM DDR3 1600MHz PC3 12800 C7-7-7-21-2T
HD's~3x Seagate Barracuda 500G SATAII 7.200rpm
VCA~EVGA-GeForce 9800GTX SSC 512MB
PSU~BeQuiet 700W ATX V2.2 PSU Straight Power, 24/20pins, active pfc, 2xpci-e, 8xsata, 4x12V Rails
SC~Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion Series
DVDR~2x Samsung DVD RW+/-DL SH230P black
OS~Windows XPproSP3 UKversion
case~Antec Performance One P182

I asked if I where allowed to think about it for a sec or 2 Cool

Well I told 'm it was a nice offer and I'd go along with their proposal as long the system would be up and running by the coming week Cool

I think it was a nice stroke of luck and just couldn't resist sharing it with my friends Smile
