[Deal] Black Friday!

RE: Black Friday!
I picked up the Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold Series 800w for $99.99, and got the G. Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4gb) 1600 for $99.99 (Got a couple of these because there is way to many people I know who will want RAM in the future.) Missed out on the posted Radeon 5770 cards for $100 each or I would have gotten those as well.

Power consumption on that thing is way too high for me. I'd hold out for the 69xx series, considering that they'll probably be as powerful and consume less power.

I suggest you grab some of the G. Skill discounted RAM fast

Thing is, we don't know when the 69xx series is launching, there has been delays. We also have no info on how it will do performance/power consumption wise.

GTX 580 is one heck of a powerful card and will last you for a very long time. Power consumption is a tad lower than GTX 480, while noise and temperatures are definitely lower. Compared to the GTX 480, it's definitely a step up. Better than anything AMD has to offer right now, whether you want to wait to see if the 69xx series is worth or not is up to you.

But if the 68xx is any indication, these new GPUs should continue to be extremely energy efficient.

RE: Black Friday!
Thanks everyone for the replies.

Yea I would of loved to pick up some ripjaw's on sale but my motherboard is designed for triple channel RAM I believe so I was hoping to get some of that but as far as I know the Ripjaw triple channel RAM was not on sale. Maybe it will be tomorrow for cybermonday.

Yea I probably will just end up getting the GTX 580, I just don't feel like waiting around for ATI.
Did any of you see that deal that newegg had on the 5870 for $215 after MIR and using the code VGA112235. It's sold out now but it was going for about four days. I came so close to buying it everyday lol. Finally I decided that I'd rather go with a new series card for better future proofing.

MathieuB, what do you think of the build itself? I used your great $1500 gaming machine as a template. I'm still gonna try to get the memory you recommended. Don't know if I made the right move with a SSD but I figure it was a decent price and from what I'm told it really speeds up windows. Looking forward to that 12 or 13 second boot.

I think I'll be more than pleased with the GTX 580, especially since I'm upgrading from a 9800GTS. I figure it should last me at least three years...Thanks again for the hard work you clearly have put into this site.

Enjoy your GTX 580. There's really nothing I can use with that power though. I literally play two games (Civ 5 and L4D2).

RE: Black Friday!
Hey would this RAM be good for my build? It's really cheap for cyber monday... the frequency is only 1333mhz though. I dont think I have any need to overclock my cpu at this point in time, so I was thinking that it would be ok for a lower frequency memory. I just dont want it to become a bottleneck, what do you guys think?
