    I'm getting page not found, has it been called off?

    NVM, just found out it would take me over 4 hours to get there, i know MSRP cards are rare as hens teeth but i ain't spending 9 hours negotiating trains just to get one.

    Going to Bolton isn't an option for me, but good luck to those that do.

    Re: Scan Computers offers 700+ Nvidia RTX 30-series cards this weekend

    im wondering out of the thousand or so who signed up, actually went to scan?

    from various comments on twitter, alot were thinking it was a virtual event and the could order online.

    anywho. https://www.scan.co.uk/scanevent21?u...ampaign=buffer

    THESE ARE INSTORE PRICES FOR THIS EVENT ONLY!!! YOU HAVE TO CLICK 'N COLLECT TODAY TO GETTHEM. (incase anyone tries to online order them..)

    £299 for a 3060 or £369 for a 360ti. they good prices aren't they?


    wonder if theyll stick any leftovers on the proper store this next week at these prices. clear any stock not sold today?

    keep any eye out

    It's sure a thought, but I'd doubt it (largely 'cos I doubt they'll be any that make it that far) but if some do, anyone wanting one (like me) better be faster than greased lightning.

    If I was still living up north, I definitely would've made the effort if I needed a card.

    Now though - ~£100 Ferry tickets, plus the ~£100 in diesel, not to mention the hotel room if I wanted to be at the doors early. I'd better of paying scalper prices.

    Still, like I said: Hurrah for gamers in Bolton.
