GOD DAMN..i have just done some searching on the company KOMPLETT...it seems they have a poor service on returns and CS..and sending wrong orders,faulty goods...etc

SO i will not be risking my hard earned cash there!....

i also build a dream gaming system at PC specialest..only to find they dont accept credit cards...DOH
