Newegg and Black Friday

Ok, I am on a budget for my very first gaming rig build. I have built many computers, just not up to this standard. I am on a budget of around 600 USD and less. I have all of my parts picked out. I dont need a monitor and OS. I have it to around 650 on newegg. The thing i need to know, are the black friday deals on newegg gonna lower it a decent amount? Also, I didnt utilize combos for this price, but i will be during black friday


Some of these items are set in stone. I am definitely getting The CPU, The case, The Ram, and the Hard drive. I want a PSU that has CONTINUOUS power. I want Corsair over antec and I want only 1 12v rail. I only need a 700 max or less. I love the Haf 922 case. Its cheap and I think it looks awesome and it has great cooling. The motherboard, I want a reliable one with onboard video. I want a GPU but that can wait a month or so since I wont be gaming for a bit. If anyone has any tips then let me know. I also didnt use any combos. I will be finding the best combos possible even if it means upgrading or downgrading alittle. Also, Are CD/DVD burners the same as CD/DVD Roms, but can also burn dvds and such? Also, when it comes to my case that I selected. I can get the Red LED HAF 922 or the BLue. The blue version has the side window so there is NO OPTION of putting a 200 mm Fan on the side. Should I get the RED with the optional fan placement or get the blue with the extra LEDs and the side window? Here is what is listed so far.

FUTURE GPU

Its at 644.00 Right now. It doesnt include a GPU. The reason for this, I wont be gaming right away and Im going to be getting an ATI Radeon 5800 series or the new 6000 series. I dont want to skimp on one and get a 5770 or something. SO depending on my income, I might get it or not during cyber monay.

1) Look for a few deals early in the week during pre-holiday hoopla;
2) Follow up with the goodness that comes with *Cyber-Monday*; and
3) Most online folks follow up Cyber-Monday with another blast of special deals less than a week later.

I am going to be overclocking My Phenom. I dont need the heatsink right away because I wont be overclocking until I run my system for a month to make sure its nice and stable. Its 30 or so for a very good heatsink. Its optional at the moment though. Can you please give me the link to your "Fun Build" I am on Dial up right now and its a pain...lol

Agreed. NEVER skimp on the PSU. ALL Corsair units are rated by their Continuous power. You can tell this by calculating the wattage by using:

W = V*A

And the specs listed on the label for the +12,+5, +3.3 rails

That 650W Corsair's MAX wattage rating is more than 700W. The 650TX delivers 624W max just at the +12 rail.
