    As of about 2 minutes ago as I write this that's right but when I checked again just now when I wanted to calculate some percentages it seems to have been put back to £1995.

    Seems like a good system, though I have to say that it doesn't fill me with much confidence when a company's "right2reply" has spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes in there. And yes, I'm one of those guys that would choose to not go to a certain restaurant, based purely on the fact that they didn't put enough effort into checking for spelling mistakes on their menu.

    It's a principle thing, but I think it goes a long way in making a company look professional. I see it the same way as a shop ensuring that customer facing employee's are always clean, smart and tidy. Just as they would always try to keep the actual shop clean and tidy.

    With that being said...*puts on flame retardant suit*

    I got curious why is the atx 24 pin extender there? Is the PSU cable too short or is it for any other purpose?

    Hovering over the first 2 computers at the bottom of their Main page has a little pop up saying "ATI Radeon PC" when the images are clearly displaying "Nvidia SLI".

    Does make you wonder.

    I purchaed this case and then after putting everything into the case I didn't actually like it. It's now up in the attic in the box. I should sell it really because thjere is nothing wrong with it. it's just didn't grab me.

    No not at all it's for cable management, put the cable through the right side of the chassis and then use the 24 pin extension cable to the MB, it's the same wirh the 12V cable and extension cable.

    I think your mistaken, there is no need to use a 24 pin extension cable in that system, it has a feed coming off the extension for the front panel, its the only reason its there.

    Feel free to prove me wrong mind, it happens a lot
