    [DEAD] i7-12700K $299.99 Micro Center In-Store Only

    I used to live in Denver about 5 minutes away from an MC. Now I live in MC-less Florida and want to kill myself.

    [DEAD] i7-12700K $299.99 Micro Center In-Store Only

    I'm still running an i5 2500K, I don't upgrade very often and when I do I want to make sure it's as future-proof as possible. When DDR5 starts crapping on DDR4 I'd rather not be forced to shell out for a brand new mobo and RAM. I don't mind waiting unless my 2500 finally gives out on me but...

    [DEAD] i7-12700K $299.99 Micro Center In-Store Only

    I'd pick this up if the RAM didn't cost literally 4 times the CPU itself with no signs up a DDR5 supply explosion. I'm not going to waste my money on a 12th gen DDR4 mobo.

    HOT!! Intel Core i5-12600K $250 (MC in store only)

    Too bad the DDR5 RAM is 10x the cost of the CPU itself. It seems stupid to buy these until DDR5 shores up, at least if you're trying to get a deal or care about future-proofing.

    Lukewarm: HTC Vive Pro $699.99 @ Microcenter

    Thanks to crypto sabotaging the gaming GPU market, VR resolution increases are at a standstill.

    Microcenter WILL SHIP DEAL! Inland Professional 480GB SSD $79.99

    Don't be swayed by the overwhelmingly favorable reviews on the 120GB and 240GB versions of this SSD. While those SSDs use the faster, more reliable MLC NAND technology, this 480GB SSD uses the slower, less reliable TLC tech. While this delivers higher memory density, it will not deliver the kind...

    HIFIMAN HE400i Special Edition Over Ear Planar Magnetic Headphones - New $150.00

    My M50 practically fell apart on my head. I ran back to my DT 770 Pro and realized they sounded much better, and they've lasted much longer.

    HIFIMAN HE400i Special Edition Over Ear Planar Magnetic Headphones - New $150.00

    One of these days I'll see a deal for good closed back headphones.

    HTC Vive $350 at Amazon Warehouse Deals

    Any idea if that replacement works on the Pro?

    HTC Vive $350 at Amazon Warehouse Deals

    I'd hesitate to strap a used product directly to my face without an intense cleaning, especially when you consider what a lot of people (guys) use VR for.

    Perhaps the best headphones at...$50?

    NE's customer support is such trash. My paypal address was missing the APT so they processed it as a refund without even notifying me, and now it's sold out and they refuse to process it as a replacement even though I know they have the item.

    Micro Center i7 8700K $344.99 + $30 mobo combo IN-STORE ONLY
  13. F


    I was referring to the online part of Amazon, not this dumbass truck shit that Amazon is pushing. I could be wrong; maybe they've made so many trillions that they wanted to do something nice and are shipping around this truck like some sort of gift to their customers.

    I seriously doubt they're operating at a loss here, and Amazon/eBay (for NES classics and such) already drive markups way down while being infinitely more convenient. This just sounds like another scam like Lootcrate to me - except the merchandise isn't even delivered to you in this case. If...

    Why not just buy this shit online at your leisure instead of waiting for some fucking truck to roll around?

    I7-7700K - warm? $309

    Pretty risky; open box ones are likely the ones that don't OC very well and overheat.

    I take it from the promo code they're trying to ride the GoT hype train here.

    i7 7700k $280 at Microcenter (in store only)

    The semi-recent overheating scandal has made me weary of these things. My 2500k has been chugging along @ 4.8GHz just fine, anyways.

    Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 Ti 11G - $660 shipped - Massdrop - YMMV

    $900 MSRP? What? That shipping date is pretty brutal, too. I'd rather just drop the extra $100 and pick it up from MC.

    Oculus Bundle: Rift + Touch + 7 Games + $100 Store Credit $600

    Buying a Vive ensures you can play everything out there, everyone I know who bought a Rift is kicking themselves now.

    Intel Core i7-7700K $10 Off

    Wait, why would anyone buy a 7700k if you're not supposed to overclock it?

    Today Only Monoprice: 6ft 30AWG High Speed HDMI® Cable - Black

    Nope, you're looking for HDMI 2.0 cables. These will do 24Hz @ 4K per the description. It's pretty misleading how the specs say "Category 2 Certified".

    Asus GT-AC5300 router $291.99 ( might be a price mistake)

    Looks like some sort of Star Wars platform.

    Bundle Start Pure VR bundle $4.99

    More tech demo shovelware. It's pretty sad that I've had a vive for a year now and have yet to buy a single game for it.

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided STEAM PC $10 or less

    Now to justify the time investment to play this.

    HTC Vive $100 off for Today Only

    What? Next-gen VR is nothing but speculation right now. It could easily fizzle out like every other VR attempt before.

    MICRO CENTER 7600K & ASUS PRIME Z270-P LGA 1151 ATX for $304.98 (In Store Only Limit of 1 Combo)

    Bleh, still can't justify roughly $500 in all to upgrade my 2500k. When are general quantum CPUs coming out? 4th quarter?

    Warm: Oculus Rift $600+tax with $150 BB Gift Card (Net $450)

    I was all for the Oculus Rift when it was announced. Then they announced the Facebook partnership and I cringed but endured it. Then they announced there would be no touch on launch and they were partnering with M$ and using an Xbox 360 controller. That's when I ran away to the Vive. If they...
