  1. NewEgg is a worse company IMO. Well, if you're in Canada at least. I refuse to do business with them.
  2. Oh man that sounds glorious! Yeah, it was ICQ for me. Still have the "uh oh" sound as my notification on my phone. Chat on that while trying to download songs on Napster with a 56k connection hoping I don't get disconnected by a phone call. It's quite shocking how far we've come...the youth really don't know how good/horrible they have it.
  3. Ryzen 1700x vs Intel 8600k

    There aren't any Intel motherboards on sale? There are quite a few over this side of the world.
  4. Intel Core i3 8100 Coffee Lake

    How is this news? It's been out for a while I'd go for the i3 personally.
  5. First Time Build: Making a Workhorse

    Nope I think Dells Black Friday deals are already live. You can check their flyer online though, I honestly can't remember what went on sale there were quite a few monitors. If you're thinking of other monitors, perhaps, but NCIX doesn't list sales until the day before.
  6. Hmm, I've surpassed 17,000 posts. What am I doing with my life?!

     

     

     

     

    Evidently, not much.

  7. Why is it so cheap?

    Haha, or $100 for an i3 8100 which is better
  8. Yes. Now please send me some butter chicken and gulab jamun.
  9. First Time Build: Making a Workhorse

    Have you considered the 8600k? Or can your workload benefit from the extra threads? Gaming will be about the same on each chip.
  10. I don't like it. You kids are ruining everything.

This build also has a 27" 144hz GSync monitor. Either way you should get that monitor, I think it's something like $300 off or something ludicrous like that. I forgot the peripherals in the second one. But you get the idea. If you buy from NewEgg you can take an extra $20 off with a promo code.
  12. 8600k vs 8700k

    8600k for sure.
  13. First Time Build: Making a Workhorse

    So you're not overclocking? If so, grab the cheapest cooler you like the look of. Your chip won't get that hot (8700 is locked). You've got a mini ITX board in an ATX case. It's going to look absolutely ridiculous. I'm not a fan of the case. There are much better PSUs. You have a WiFi adapter, but the board has integrated WiFi already. What do you like in a case? Any needs? I'll quickly build you what I'd do with the budget. Then off to bed. I'd wait for Black Friday sales for sure though.
  14. NewEggs prices won't change. NCIX sales start likely on Thursday afternoon, and it's usually better than NewEggs.
