Yea Baby! Rock my WORLD.
Makes me wish I had the funds to build another.
Looks like I'm going today or tomorrow, but still trying to figure out what to buy.
Everything I've bought has been in-store only. Order on-line and pickup within 3 days. If they offered those prices and shipped, my guess is they'd be moving a lot more goods.
Most of these deals are called "loss-leaders." They get people in the store so they can sell them high-dollar accessories, software, services, etc.
I just got an email from them with a deal on an i3 and an MSI H61 board for $120 AR.
Sasqui: Which Microcenter do you go to living in Manchester? Cambridge, MA?
No shit! I went to pick up a CPU and MB before thanksgiving and spend another $70, bought a $15 LG DVD burner and a $36 CM 212 Evo, and some other things I can't even remember, lol
Indeed. Love beantown and know a few people there, so it's an opportunity to stop, say hi and have a few beers.
I wished they would offer a free FM2 board with the purchase of a 5800K then I would be all over it like the clap at a sex party
They did have $40 off any MB with CPU purchase, but no free ones, so forget the clap, lol
I have been itching to get a 5800K but after I swung the CPU I would not have enough left over for a mATX board.
Good luck with that, their locations are minute in the US to begin with.
We have two in my state but they are around 70 miles away My wife wants to go to atlanta to shop for christmas so I may swing into one just to browse.
same here, order on-line and pick up at store, especially those hard to find items which sometimes are not in their shelves, I make them do the work for me
I love MC, I know almost all of them who work at the store near to my house, especially one of the store managers, she is very courteous and friendly, know me for almost 6 yrs now.
Frys has lately become the Open Box Store, especially motherboards being abused/raped. Atleast @ MC if its a returned item, they test it and certify it before it goes back on the shelf and best part is they are intact and works. Bought a open box ITX board from Frys, which they said inspected and repacked, went home nothing, it was dead, freaking waste of gas.
Thats the one where I got my laptop, the Marietta location. Great store, excellent selection of mechanical keyboards, including the Ducky.
The staff is really good at the Cambridge store too. Always get asked if I need help, and they want to help build systems... they like to geek out, even vicariously.
They have a rack of returned discounted goods. I saw a 7850 the last time I was there listed at $149... wish I had grabbed it.
wish i could find a decent video card at 149 , no microcenter here
I was in Westmont today, and didn't have enoug cash to pick up a CPU/mobo combo, so I was just going to pick up a bundle of CD's, a power strip and some cheap DDR3. Waiting in line for 10 minutes before I set the stuff down on the counter and walked out. Soo disappointed. :shadedshu
wish i lived near a MC wife would hate it
+1: Mine too if I had money to afford to go and get stuff. The same store Sasqui went to is about an hour away from me. I do enjoy going into the Boston area occasionally though (when it isn't rush hour. ).
How is NH, I used to live there (Manchester), nice small state, I miss it.
Anyone near MC ? That they can go like its going to the store to get groceries XD
I'm glad My state has a microcenter, I built a gaming PC for under $700, with Some pretty Nice parts.
IMO, it's best to buy Some from them, but their GPU's , and PSU's aren't as low as Some Estore's All the time. But they DO rock.
I have two in tx but closest is Dallas which is a 12+ round trip
How close do you live to yours jboy ?
I think Binge may help you, he's shipped to folks here in the past, shoot him a PM.
Should be going again to the Cambridge store again the weekend after New Years if you can wait that long.
