    Take a look at this:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I believe this is quite a good motherboard...
    If I'd buy it, would it be actually 10 pounds?

    Looks like they only ship to the UK, so you're out of luck according to your flag.

    But yes it would be £10 + £2.25 shipping. The seller has a good rating so they could be trusted.

    We use the "British Customary System" for our measurements. It's not our fault, it's yours. >.<

    I second what Joe88 says.

    "British Customary System"? Never heard of it. And by a bit of Googling, neither has anyone else [​IMG]

    There is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_customary_units (not British)
    And what we call it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperial_units

    But you don't even use Imperial Units, you use US Customary Units, which are based on Imperial Units.

    I second what SifJar says. [​IMG]

    I second this too. I was just agreeing with Joe88 about the motherboard. Z.Z

    Also just to be clear. I thought the same thing when I came in (10lb motherboard would have been silly), but I'm not ignorant. Please don't generalize, it's offensive.

    Oh sorry.

    EDIT: And I was joking in the first place. I thought the [​IMG] smiley would indicate that, perhaps not.

    GBP would be more recognizable to most than BP I think. But as purplesludge pointed out, there is also an ALT code for it. [​IMG]

    Never leave stuff like this in there if you post on the forums.
