Does anyone know any decent stockists either AD or Dubai?

I'm looking for a top spec Micro ATX mobo such as the ASUS Rampage III GENE or the SuperMicro X8D with a 1366 socket.

Computer Plaza is highly recommended for anyone wanting bits and pieces for their project....

It took me about an hour to go shop to shop and do a bit of haggling, but I ended up with exactly what I wanted - an ASUS Rampage III Gene for the equivalent of £156, around £20 cheaper than the cheapest online reseller in the UK and no shipping.

K+ to the recommenders

Yep...a digital media PC. I bought most of the kit while I was in the UK in December but screwed up in buying an ATX rather than a micro ATX motherboard.

So if anyone is in the market for an ASUS Ramage III Extreme ATX with a 1366 socket....
