Microcenter deals (local)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Just wanted to put this out there for anyone that has one close.

 

My local (and others) microcenter are having some pretty big deals this weekend/week.

 

I tossed together a budget midrange machine for my nephews for about 450 full build.

 

Ryzen 1600

B350 pro motherboard (atx)

8 GB 3200 ram (2x4)

480gb inland ssd

1 Tb Seagate

Red dragon rx580

CX500 PSU

Cm masterbox lite RBG

 

Total after tax $484

 

I mention the above because the 1600 was only 69.99 and then the 30 off for cpu/mobo bundle meant I got the pair for about 100. Then the GPU was 170 for the rx580. There was also a deal on the ssd, but that is always the case on their in house brand.

 

Now I know the 1600 is last gen, but if you are trying to put together a new rig on the cheap... they are basically giving them away.

 

Anyways if you have a local microcenter it is worth checking out.

Ya, I was going to get them a 2200g before I saw the deal on it. They had a very limited budget which I had offered to double, but for a 12/14 year old saving more than 200-300 is pretty hard apparently lol.

 

I retired their old fx6300 with a 660ti. Which actually did do pretty good in most games, but games like Apex would have pretty nasty dips and looked like a playdo world :-D.

Really?! That is pretty terrible. Seeing that they price-match from most places even amazon as long as it is prepared and shipped by them.

Yeah, i tried calling them, doing web chat, and asking an associate in store, they all said the same thing. So i went with a 2600 at $159.99 to get that $30 discount.
