  1. That store is right next to where I work. It's good for CPUs, fans and cables/screws but the rest I'd order from Newegg or Amazon. The added 6.25% tax is a killer. Even with that though, their CPU prices are the best.
  2. CPU: i5 2500k $180
    Motherboard: GA-P67X-UD3-B3 $155 $15MIR
    GPU: newegg MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II $250 $20MIR
    PSU: Go to newegg for that CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W $110 $10MIR
    Case: HAF912 Mid Tower ATX Case $58
    OS: Windows 7 $100
    RAM: newegg G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB $100
    HDD: Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB $60
    Optical Drive: DVD Drive $20

    That is a total of $1033 ($45MIR) I'd get everything but psu/gpu/ram as they don't seem to have decent prices on those. Otherwise it's comparable to newegg except that you have to pay sales tax. If you are not including windows or have a student copy then $933!
  3. I was really hoping to get everything from the one trip tomorrow at microcenter, nothing i could get as replacement?
  4. RAM: Vengeance Series 8GB $110 $15MIR
    GPU: GTX 560 Ti $260 20MIR
    PSU: TX750 V2 750 Watt $160

    It would cost you $70 more +tax to buy those which is why I tried to avoid it.
