    Talking Woohoo! I just won £50 from Hexus!

    I just had an email from David Ross to say that I've won a £50 PC World voucher!!!

    This is the first competition I've ever won!

    Now... what do I get with it?!?!?! There's so much to choose from! Plus do I just spend the vouvher or save a bit up and get something bigger?!

    Congratulations! And thanks for posting to let us know you've won too.

    Judging by your system, I'd be tempted to put it towards a SSD if they sell them.

    Re: Woohoo! I just won £50 from Hexus!

    I wouldn't get an SSD from PC World, they're likely to be overpriced. I'd have a good browse of the PC World website, look for things that would be useful, then compare prices with other websites to see what is best value at PC World. As Animus says, you're probably looking at monitors / peripherals as being your best use of a PC World voucher - or maybe a new printer?

    SSD or graphics card, although graphics card prices are a bit LOL from there so maybe not.

    Sell it on and get the Hexus "X" tattooed somewhere inappropriate.

    I'm a firm believer in not buying something just for the sake of it. Were it me, I'd either buy something I was sure I wanted, or I'd wait until there was something I was sure I wanted, rather than just splurge for the sake of it.

    Of course, you're not me.

    You are more than welcome to moan - it won't help

    We were waiting for the final winners to get back to us - as the partners who are shipping the prizes out (we aren't!) wanted to ensure that all of them went out on the same day - 10 different people isn't the easiest to get to respond.

    I wish I'd won £50... (!)

    I reckon your voucher has been hacked and subsequently claimed by an MP who gave it to the News of the World as part of his 'protection' payment which then passed it on to a policeman for certain information who sold it for less than face value down the pub to a bloke who had a mate called DR who nipped off to PC World and spent it and who wishes you'd just shut up and go away.

    All you have to do is find out who this DR git is .
