I *KNEW* IT!!!

I bought a Gigabyte Z87X-OC Force motherboard the other week and I new that all those tracks on it must have been a ruse to raise the price to €450, didn't make sense otherwise!

Thanks for confirming it...

Btw, because someone asked me my opinion on the Gigabyte I mentioned above: no, I didn't buy one; it was just the most expensive model I found within ten seconds of looking online :D

Ooo, you should have spent another 10 seconds looking, there are some really silly priced PC mainboards out there: ASUS 90-MIBIM1-G0UBY0KZ - 2011 P9X79 LE 0610839187355 | eBay :D

Well it comes in a shiny black box, so it must be good! Just imagine the amount of tracks it must have!!

Well, it says "OEM" so probably not even that?

But yeah, there must be tracks all over the place on that beauty!

@Bryce, Is that the average retail price for that board or is it the inflated ebay price.

@TotO : nah man, you don't have so many tracks!
@steve : saw it for about £150, though I didn't check if it was the exact same model...

Alors la maitresse demande à TotO de donner un exemple de phrase qui rime.
TotO: "Je suis allé à la chasse à la grenouille, j'avais de l'eau jusqu'au genoux".
La Maitresse: "Mais ça ne rime pas TotO"
TotO: "bah oui, il n'y avait pas assez d'eau."
