    Any retailers that will let me collect & pay in cash?

    I bought an Antec 900 case from ebuyer last week, and have since been working out how much I can afford for a new rig and which bits to buy. Was looking on Ebuyer this evening and finalised spec pretty much

    ASUS P5KC AiLifestyle Series iP35 Socket 775 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard 132275 283 in stock £72.82 £61.97 £72.82 £61.97

    Zalman CNPS 9700 LED Socket 754, 940, 775, 939 & AM2 CPU cooler 120876 41 in stock £34.76 £29.58 £34.76 £29.58

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Energy Efficient 95W edition Socket 775 (2.40GHz) G0 Stepping L2 8MB Cache OEM Processor 131823 228 in stock £142.00 £120.85 £142.00

    However, I went to pay and it wouldnt let me pay by Paypal. I cant pay by debit card because, well, I don't have one, and used paypal previously with success. I'm guessing it wont let me put this through because of the amount. I *could* try and put it through one by one but would have to put it on super saver delivery which would take a week! So my next best option is to drive to somewhere with a desk which will allow me to pick it up in person.

    Anyone know of anywhere that will allow me to do so? I'm based in Kent, but dont mind a bit of a trek.

    Also any thoughts on the set up would be appreciated. I'm planning to overclock a bit so need stuff that's quitable, and was also thinking of getting Vista Home Premium.

    Re: Any retailers that will let me collect & pay in cash?

    As to your spec all looks okay only things worth mentioning are that the memory doesn't really need those coolers so pay less and get some with normal heatspreaders also your Q6600 will be running at 3.6GHz at 400MHz FSB (speed of ddr2 800) so you only really need 800MHz memory anyway

    And secondly get a decent CPU cooler the Zalman wouldn't be on my list if cost £20 let alone £30! Look at the Thermalright Ultima 90 (will need a separate fan) or the Scythe Ninja or Mine, much better coolers for the cash

    Re: Any retailers that will let me collect & pay in cash?

    Thanks for the suggestions Novatech is looking likely at the moment

    Will take a look at some other coolers although I do like the zalman. a lot of reviews on the Q6600 seem to suggest its easy to overclcok on the stock cooler so anytihng above that should be good enough, but will do some mroe reading.
