    Congratz and good PR and business practices. They took your order and honored it, Doesn't happen often but good for you.

    Always rated Dabs in the past and thought they should be a more prominent e-tailer with us enthusiasts! Excellent prices and on the occasions I had hardware dead on arrival they arranged the collection from my doorstep. Total boss of an e-tailer! :thumb:

    Also I have some cashback queued up so that £424.06 will be reduced further! :D

    Dabs were a prominent retailer and have been around for years. However, when BT bought them out they started to act like BT act. IE - delayed shipments, poor customer service etc.

    Glad you got your card, but every one of the last three purchase experiences I had with them was a PITA...

    Great to see them honour the difference in price. Nice one!

    Dabs have always been reputable in my experience.

    Before CPC and Bit shoved Scan down my throat, I used to use Dabs quite a lot.

    Nice win Blogins, let us know your thoughts moving from 670 SLI to a 780Ti.

    The margins have decreased on this sale even if it is still 30%!

    Checked the delivery tracking and my card has to leave the Tyneside Royal Mail Centre. It may never escape! :D

    I get that feeling as well.

    Wish I had the money at the time to have got one myself.

    No, just work an early AM shift this week!

    Anyway the GTX 780 Ti has arrived and the PNY packaging is tiny for a GPU! It's the 'Enthusiast Edition' so has a moderate overclock straight out of the box. Reference board and cooler but no plastic covers for the exposed sockets as you'd typically find with the likes of Asus and EVGA.

    I'll take some snaps and install the card tomorrow! :D
