    Sapphire 7970 Boost $380 AR

    When I'm looking for any deals on PC hardware, I don't even bother to check other sites. I just check here and see what Fooshnik has found recently. Better than a personal shopper. Thanks Fooshnik!

    Seasonic X-Series: X-850 Power Supply Review @ [H]

    I read a bunch of reviews for Seasonic PSUs in general before I picked up the this X850 right after Christmas. All the reviews I have seen have pretty much been excellent for all Seasonic PSUs. Finding this one at 110.00 after MIR just made it even a sweeter deal.

    Seasonic X-850 850W Fully-Modular Gold PSU $110 AR

    Yep, I bought one of these the last time they were at this price. Hard to go wrong with this one.

    Newegg 4TB WD Black $289 AC

    Just read a review on this and a similar Hitachi drive. http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/hitachi_ultrastar_7k4000_4tb_vs_western_digital_re_4tb I think their main gripe was the retail cost (460.00) At 72.50 per TB, this is indeed a good buy. Good find!

    HOT: Seasonic X Series X-850W Gold Modular PSU $129 before MIR @ NE

    I grabbed the same deal on this power supply just last month on NE. Nice to see it again for the same price after MIR. Great PSU!

    Radeon 7870 Tahiti(aka 7930) for $220(after MiR) and free Sleeping Dogs(awww)

    Yes, no doubt. Makes me wish I had held off a bit on the 7870 I bought, but had not heard of these cards when I bought mine.

    SeaSonic X750 750W 80 Plus Gold Full Modular Power Supply $90 AR + F/S

    I think the OP has a valid point about the threadcrapping. He wanted to share what he found with others, then has somebody come in and basically say "That deal is not that good, this one is better" If you have a better deal, then post a link and let people decide how good of a deal it is.

    Radeon 7870 Tahiti(aka 7930) for $220(after MiR) and free Sleeping Dogs(awww)

    220.00 for performance close to a 7950. Not bad!

    SeaSonic X750 750W 80 Plus Gold Full Modular Power Supply $90 AR + F/S

    Yes, I am familiar with Rosewill. Still have not made your point on how this is a better deal than the Seasonic. I look at the JohnnyGuru site frequently, as well as Anandtech, Guru3D, HardwareHeaven, Xbitlabs, HardOCP, TechSpot, etc, etc, Let's get back to the actual point of this...

    SeaSonic X750 750W 80 Plus Gold Full Modular Power Supply $90 AR + F/S

    Regardless of what any one website says about a Rosewill, I would not hestitate for a second to pick a 80 Plus Gold certified Seasonic over a Rosewill if the prices were similar. Not saying the Rosewill is not a good performer, but Seasonic quality is pretty much a given.

    Newegg RMA Technicians Are Breaking My Returns

    I got the same email from them a few weeks ago on a new Gigabyte board. I posted a negative review on resellerratings.com and they contacted me via email about 30 minutes later. Initially they were going to give me a new board, but I had pointed out that I had already purchased another board...

    Seasonic X-850 Gold PSU for 109.99 after Promo/MIB

    Update 1/19 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151102 Back on sale now with a 40.00 promo (48 hours only) + 20.00 MIB 119.99 so not quite as good as the first time.
