    Re: I may have wounded my Motherboard

    Just an update on this saga.

    PBTech suggested I bring the PC & radio to one of their branches & they would look into it.

    Yes 2 items:

    Storage volume shadow copies

    I am thinking they may be related to my Quick Swap Hard Drive Cady.

    I may have wounded my Motherboard

    I have several radios that I program via PC.
    I received a new one today & proceeded to set it up along side the others.

    Re: Online Purchase from UK

    Yes a bit too open ended for my liking.
    I wouldn't know the total cost until after the initial purchase.

    It will be in access of the $1000 limit, so will likely have to pay duty.
    Any tips or advice from anyone who has done this ?

    Depends what it's going to be used for.
    If it's for gaming, that card will soon heat up the inside of the case.
    First casualty is usually the PSU getting too hot.

    Re: Support for long graphic card

    I've used long cards in the past.
    They will sag or twist if you don't create some sort of support.
    A bigger problem is they won't fit in most modern cases without surgery.

    Re: Import Duties

    Ordered yesterday.
    Got email today, advising delivery May 17.
    That would be a new record from the US.
    I'll believe that when it happens.
    Still waiting for an item bought on eBay 2 months ago.
