Hmm i dunno thats second hand yeah? i wouldnt ever buy second hand cos you never know if theres is more wrong with it than just no cables. what website was that off? you can buy it new from www.scan.co.uk for £106.60 (inc vat)
depends if you want to spend that much.

Ok now that you said its from ebay DO NOT BUY IT. it is likely to have problems. the things you have to think about are "why are they selling it and why a low price" if you could save up a bit more money then i would get it from scan's website.

yeah i know. but they said its in full working order and has been checked (i know this doesn't count for much on ebay these days, but the ebay team are pretty good about taking actions against false claims)
I was just hoping to get it cheap. I was origianlly going to get the SE but since the premium is the same price i just thought i'd ask.

Oh ok then well its up to you. i suppose you can send it back if it is faulty but then thats hassle. if its too much for you to spend on ur mobo at full price then thats fair enough. But would be better to spend that little bit extra so you know you are getting a good quality mobo.
