see above. In a way... yes. All components of the pc installed as it should and it booted into windows setup without issue, once I sorted the monitor gaff. Annoyed at myself for being a moron though.

Worst case scenario is that ebuyer wont accept the return (as its not faulty and has been unboxed) and i'll have to attempt a multi monitor setup for the first time so that I actually using the extra monitor I now have in the house.

So long as you can repackage it you should still be able to return it under the distance selling regulations.

Silly sausage!

Just finished all driver installs, essential apps and AVG. Computer is running excellently and minecraft installed and tested ready for the Birthday. Just need to install Sims over the weekend and I'll have a happy young lady on Tuesday.

Of course it does. But like I said i'm a moron. I didn't notice the monitor adaptor. The thing that confused me was that there was only DVI and HDMI out on card, and VGA in on monitor.

Yeah I know I'm just saying why bother returning it when you could just set it up as a multi monitor setup seeing as you've already bought two monitors

I could do but would rather have the money back as the extra monitor has meant I'm well over budget on the pc build. If they didn't accept the return that would be the Idea, to use a second monitor rather than have one unused in a box. Doesn't stop me being a moron though.

2 monitors are better than 1

I don't really have the desktop real estate to have an extra monitor on my pc as we have both computers next to each other and it would mean 3 monitors being on one desk which is not really practical.

Sent it back via parcel force today and managed to get the refund of the broken case authorised for refund yesterday so should have the excess money spent on the build back soon.

Was Emily's birthday yesterday and she was totally made up with the new computer. So thanks all for helping make things work out.
