PSU / Graphics card
Hey, I have a wee situation.
The thing is,a few days ago i learned that a 6800GT here in the UK is the same price as a 7800GT there in the US.
I also have a psu, only 380W, tagan (good make in britain), but I could get the 535W enermax whisper for that price ~ its crazy.
I bought my pc components from overclockers.co.uk about 2 months ago, the thing is, like I said, UK prices are crazy.
(This company is pretty much the biggest in UK)
I know this sounds funny, nasty, but here it goes.
I want to see if i could return my graphics card and psu, and say they are faulty. Hopefully, I will recieve a full refund, and then I could buy the 7800GT from Tigerdirect (the only place I have seen that ship to UK from the US) and also the psu.
The thing is, this company is quite stingy, and if you would, strict with this stuff.
If you could, do you think you could give me a few reasons of why a psu and gfx card would get messed up together?
I am going to try to phone them tomorrow, so I need a good reason.
Heck, if I can make my pc better, by getting a 535W enermax whisper, and the 7800GT, for the SAME price as I bought my 6800GT and 380W psu for (which hasnt dropped since 2 months when I bought), Ill do it.
Anyway, long post, very sorry.
Cheers If you can help.
ps, pmed a few people, and they gave some good replies,
why don't you simply short each of them out, then

Would this do it? I really need something that would give me a solid reason, I only have 1 chance, and I cant mess up my graphics card and have them rejecting it, leaving me with a messed up card.
Anyway, if you could give a solid reason and something I could do cause they will test them back at their comp store, i need them internaly fked, i would appreciate the help !
Cheers again !
