The SB600 southbridge allows a vast number of connectors, including 10 USB 2.0 ports and 4 SATAII ports, RAID support, and high-definition audio. Also, the SB600 utilizes advanced disk controller technologies to allow faster data access.

CrossFire Xpress 3200, developed for powerful multi-GPU gaming, now has AM2 support. With advanced tuning capabilities that are a must for any enthusiast and true, unrestricted dual 16x PCI-Express lanes, this is a gaming force to be reckoned with.

yea,no silly stuff like £8 postage like ocuk i hate that when places charge u loads for postage,but your postage is "pretty" reasonable anyways so changing it is upto you,as raven said free postage is always a bonus imo.

Personally I think OCUK have the best shop layout, very easy to navigate round but one thing I dont like is they put the price without vat in massive writing and in tiny writing they put "price including vat =" very sly...

free postage is always a bonus imo.

You guys stocking any of WD's 150gb Raptors or Raptor X's? (sorry for not taking the time to look myself, im being a lazy mofo :p)

Postage is a funny one. We have several options ranging from first class recorded up to parcel delivery.

Problem with recorded delivery is that its next to useless. From a customer point of view you cant tell where in the system it is and from a retailer point of view, trying to get any information from the post office is a mare and god forbid you should try and claim for a lost parcel.

On the drop down box the site has a habbit of arranging postal rates by a strange order so the most expensive is always first. Youd be amazed how many people have spent more than really necessary on just getting a fan.

OCUK shop is ok but isnt it just a little bit over clicky. The golden rule of no more than 3 clicks to get where you want to go seems to have gone out of the window.

Does anyone here look at sites like reseller ratings or the romulous sites to get a gauge on how well somewhere is doing?

I think that rule isn't as applicable as your an enthusiast site where people want to find EXACTLY what they want.

24-05-2006, 04:04:16

Agreed. If there's something i want, i'll click 100 times on 100 different websites to find exactly what i need.

Besides, as long as your site is Google friendly most people will only have to click once to find what they want ;)

I just spent the last 30-45 mins going through the site and I have to say that I actually am pretty pleased with the layout of things. One thing that I did notice is in the hard drive section, it seems that they are just thrown in there with no real order. Other than that I really like the site. :worship:

Edit: I don't know where the forum link goes since for some reason it is banned here on the boat but may want to link to this forum also. This way people know they can get help here from people that work for specialtech and also ask other questions about different things from the members here. Just my .02

people on this forum want top end stuff. i think your main problem is lack of target audience, but of course thats a business side of things im sure you are more than capable of rectifying.

for the products we ahve reviewed for you, maybe add a link tot he review on each product description, may make it more of a "goto" place like you said.

specifically at hard drives...i think it is less important to include all top range drives, as occassionally even the top end buyers will opt for low end drives, they are not _that_ important.

just aim your site more for enthusiasts if that is the way you want to go, and trust me forums like this will put you where you need to be.

Thats the plan, to have alink back to here so that people can see a review from you guys. Im trying to persuade the lads that review that even if they get stuff from silverstone to add a "buy here" or "available at specialtech" link to stuff thye have got direct from manufactures to go to our site
