Thanks for the ideas... yes I am slightly worried about the notoriety of the card
but I think the price of £120 that I found here
here is pretty good. £120 is around the $180-200 mark I guess.... though the dollar is changing around in value a bit at the moment.
Also bear in mind that most computer stuff is far more expensive in the UK than the US so it's an ever better deal!
