Re: Going to Extremes?

Thanks for the kind offer but I doubt if I will go the build it myself (with help) route or even if I will get to make a purchase any time soon. I just don't know if I can really justify spending £2 - 3000 on my flight sims until I know just what the new offering from Microsoft needs. Just putting t...

Re: MISSED BIRTHDAY RECENTLY?

Thank you. It is\was 12th August which may or may not be "the glorious 12th" depending on whether you shoot or not. Either way, living in a shooting area, I tend to go out wearing a flak jacket. Much rather - this year - celebrate 2nd October as being the day I got the all clear. Sort of 2nd birthda...

Re: Going to Extremes?

Thanks Nigel, that has certainly given me something to work on. Regarding a new PC, I have discovered a 'plot' afoot. SWMBO's machine is old enough (9 years) to retire and so she is making sheep' eyes at mine.... Which makes sense as she is doing more photographic work now than ever before. So "Go o...

Re: Going to Extremes?

Had a look. Wow, what a place to go to if able to build your own PC. Alas, my electronic work is limited to installing new SSDs and sound cards. On the subject of sound cards; I notice that a lot of new build PCs are offered with on board sound. I thought that the best course was to have a separate ...

Re: MISSED BIRTHDAY RECENTLY?

That explains it. Thought that maybe I had died and no one had told me. :lol:

Re: Going to Extremes?

Hi Ben, My current kit is all SSD with a 2TB drive just for P3D, the only mechanical drive I now have is one for the basic admin chores with Word and ACE accounts and photos. Any new PC would have to be likewise equipped. SWMOWQ says that I can spend whatever I want as recent close calls prove that ...

Re: Going to Extremes?

Alex, the kit listed was as offered by PCSpecialists - I didn't ask for anything. I suppose it was just a fishing expedition on their part seeing as I had recently had a look-see at what was on offer and also the fact that I have bought from them every couple of years for myself or other members of ...

Re: Going to Extremes?

I was hoping no one would notice the £5 discrepancy! There goes another 'get rich quick' scheme :'( As for a PPl I doubt if I could pass the medical to ride a bike at the moment. The best part in all this is I opted to proceed to the next step in 'ordering' to be given a list compatibility problems!...

Going to Extremes?

I've been considering a new PC to replace my current quite zippy beast. In my search I popped into my old pals at PC Specialists and had a fiddle with a couple of outlays - just window(s) shopping so to speak. Anyway, in the way of the internet I am now being followed round by different offerings fr...
