A request has been put in a while ago. It never saw a response.
You can put me down for living near a Frys. Their deals have been poor lately though
have any heatware I can associate with your name?
Heatware is in my Sig
added w/heat! Thanks
anyone noticed the i7 860 at 200?
I live next to both a frys and microcenter, and I'd be happy to help out fellow TPU members -
If anyone is by a Fry's, they're running a CHEAP cheap duallie deal.....
I'm tempted to ask for a pickup regardless of my BAD luck with MSI.
just an update to everyone, good deals at MC:
- i7 920 180$, 17 930 200$, i7 860 200$, i5 750 180$
- 4gb ddr2, depending on your choice, is between 85-90$ (I prefer either 2x 2gb stick of crucial or the 2x2gb kit of cl4 ddr2 800 crucials)... 4gb ddr2 is 110$ - 10$ MIR here or 120- 30 MIR for OCZ
- 105$ - 20$ MIR for an OCZ vertex 30GB
That AMD combo, I find, is a GREAT deal! 50$ off CPU + mobo
I'm going to need that i7 860 very soon. I will be hitting one of you up via PM.
Binge-put me down as being close by a Fry's store.
Yesterday I got a friend of mine to get me one of the Microcenter i7 930s @ 199.99 but I have to wait till around wednesday next week till I get it along with a newegg ASRock x58 Extreme to get here in Barbados. Already have my 6 gigs of OCZ 1600MHz DDR3 waiting .
I have always wondered though how Microcenter can sell these cpu's so cheap. Can any one give some rational explanation?
This blurry cell phone pic he sent me is all I can show atm
A loss leader?
I figured something like that. must work well for them. anyway whatever the case thanks to the folks there as I'm getting back an i7 setup.
Do u think they really got that CPU for $199.99 from their suppliers? nope.
I take it you did not see the bit in bold. Just was looking for an authority (or numbers) to confirm.
They sell them @ a loss and make it in-store only so the sales reps can try and sell other stuff to the people who come in. When I bought my 920 @ MC the sales rep asked me if I had everything, from the case to the thermal paste. I felt like a douche after a while because I was basically only there for a processor that they're taking a loss on.
No, they pay more for it.
Guys, I'm done. I'm freaking done. Someone just did a charge-back out of the blue and I haven't the faintest how to dispute it. This is ridiculous, I'm screwed
I saw your other post binge,
Talk to your CC company and let them know, keep talking to paypal and send them the tracking info that you did send the item
That's low, really.
Was it someone on this forum?
It was on evga i believe
He was crying because the post said the cpu was retail yet no heatsink was sent.
That's total BS Binge. I hope you get it figured out man.
I cherry picked an i7 920 that would clock to 4.7GHz out of a mess of 10. Found them all homes at reduced prices, and this one I wanted a little extra because of my efforts. The guy cries about not getting a stock HSF, which was never to be included in the deal, and proceeds to get me to send the stock HSF. Today I find out he did a charge-back.
I would call the cops if he doesn't return the cpu. Do it asap tho
