Yes.

1. Scan messed up meaning that I did not recieve my computer until 3pm today and not on Tuesday when it was suppose to.

2. My neighbour broke one of my leads (the one that links into both the hard drive, floppy, cd-rom) and so I had to folk out £10 at pc world for a new one.

3. My neighbour thinking that a girl can't build a pc and butting me out of the picture so that a boyfriend-girlfriend activity turned into a male-bonding session. My neighbour knows less about computers than me!

Normally I wouldn't but when my girlfriend is having a tantrum at 7:30 pm because she can't use her PC where do I go. She wouldn't wait overnight so the choice was the 9.99 one at PC world or the 14.99 one at PC World

I think I choose the better one.

It wasn't a tantrum.

fourthly, don't buy an asus mobo. ever. whoever suggested that is WRONG.
and this statement would be based on.... one bad experience?

the only issue ive ever had with asus boards (and bar my first custom setup - i was on the cheap n went for msi - all mine have been asus) is the need for a bios update or some minor incompatibility issues with older graphics cards (that asus tech support has been really helpful with). thats it. theyre very stable, very well put together pieces of kit.

infact, most manufacturers that have been known for crappy mobos in the past have triumphed more recently (gigabyte [ds3], foxconn [c51], abit [ab9] etc) so :p:
