Nothing probably
I havent seen any good deals at all, its all just hype and distraction making you think the shit is a good deal.

Mainly a new SSD but the ones I want are already on sale through to BF so I doubt it's going to drop any further
>>
>>45286249
I'm kind of wondering myself if the 4670 will go any lower. I'm hoping it does if not I might just go with another i5 that's on sale.

I've got my eyes on a SSD and maybe 980 GTX for Witcher 3 come february 2015, should I splurge out for the GTX right now or wait for new announcements/hard price drops?

Do I really have to fucking format my entire HDD and reinstall Windows all over again to use my SDD?

Just image it across.

I've been keeping an eye on the 4690k and the absolute lowest I've ever seen it after two months of lurking pcpartpicker is about 240. And older cpus tend to be more expensive for whatever reason
>>
>>45286342
I doubt the 970/980 are going to drop at all, they've been selling plenty fine without discounts

>>45286428
Plus the run up to Christmas would be a daft time to discount

I got this and a splitter to run a sub with my headsets, now I fucking feel explosions when gaming. 100% recommend, it has a switch in the back so its not running when you are listening to music etc.

Still a great sub for a true speaker setup as well, it has its own amp.

This. I'm looking for a new laptop and everything I'm looking at online is pretty much in the usual price range. I'm not sure if I'm willing to stand outside in 10 degree weather like a derp with a bad knee and fucked up toe on the offchance that I MIGHT find something that hasn't been discounted to it's normal price.

Back in the day when AMD was truly incompetent and were shipping out X4s rebranded as X3s the motherboard actually did matter if you wanted a free X4

Now it's more just what they can support/how decent the company is for RMAs

There's pretty much 0 chance of the 900s dropping in price before 2015

A couple of 5tb internals to replace the 4.5 I've just about filled (about 300gb left) and a second GTX 970.

Looking to get a 4 TB hard drive this Black Friday/Monday. Can anybody recommend me a good one? I found this chart on /a/, and to be honest, I've never heard of HGST. Are they any good? If you were going to buy a new HDD, what would you buy?
>>
>>45286619
Pls be bait
>>
>>45289400
>Low prices to encourage people to buy things
>Sales gimmick
No fucking shit, but that doesn't mean it doesn't save you money if you wanted to buy that stuff anyway.
>>
>>45289831
HGST used to be Hitachi until recently. I think they're the best HDDs you can buy, but WD is still very good, so don't hesitate to get a WD if you find one at a great price (since they tend to go on sale more frequently than HGST, at least on Newegg)
>>
I plan on getting this.

Does newegg have anything going on for an upgrade from an amd 7770. Plan on picking something up for a decent price, doesn't have to be super leet pc master race, and putting my 7770 in my wife's computer.

I'm going to buy all of the ram.

Not only are you too fucking lazy to read your own fucking thread, you're actually retarded enough to make TWO POSTS instead of fucking googling the fucking name.
Jesus fucking christ.
If you read the fucking logo itself it says "A western digital company". IE it seems to be someone that was acquired by WD.

People like you are the reason we, as a species, will die on this rock.

Is it just me, or is Newegg total shit? Amazon has better customer service in case you need to return/exchange something, and Amazon generally has lower prices.

Already bought a 240GB Intel 730 SSD for $130.00 CAD ($115.00 USD) today.

Read the articles they came from.
https://www.backblaze.com/blog/what-hard-drive-should-i-buy/
https://www.backblaze.com/blog/what-hard-drive-should-i-buy/


Some people have problems with their methodology see this:
http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/6028/dispelling-backblaze-s-hdd-reliability-myth-the-real-story-covered/index.html
It boils down to calling the whaaaambulance because they are used in an actual real-world environment instead of a carefully controlled laboratory

Also read this:
https://www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-drive-smart-stats
https://www.backblaze.com/blog-smart-stats-2014-8.html

Whichever drive you buy make sure the SKU has the minimum number of platters and read heads for it's capacity (ex: 2x1TB platters for a 2TB drive instead of 4x500GB platters) using this database:
http://rml527.blogspot.ca/
The higher the platter density the higher the sequential performance and lower probability of mechanical failure.

>>45289987
I've heard the 730s are pretty shit, although at that price point it's probably a hell of a lot more reasonable

What do you have against newegg?

It's not that they're shit, just absurdly overpriced.
