I'm helping my friend build a $800 budget gaming computer, I would like some feedback on the component I chose and if they would work well together. I'm a little over budget and I would like to know where I could shave off some extra costs.
I choose blue component colors to match the case LED fans
If your building in december unfortunately most of the deals and parts won't apply by than and the prices. By using combo deals, sales, etc we can usually knock off at least $100 easy on 800 builds and sometimes a bit more. Since it is already a future build what I honestly do is take the suggestions here and if you can scrap together the money for black friday, buy the parts than. Newegg, Tigerdirect I know for a fact has sales around than and if I remember I think at least one of them have sales starting right before it and more on black friday itself. And also check out other computer stores on that day as well for good deals.
In addition to checking out the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals you should make sure you've subscribed to Newegg's email list so you can check out all there deals for the next several weeks, and also check out various hot deal forums for whatever particularly good deals might come up.
