Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explainedˢsͥˡ ͮuͤ ͬˢgͭ ͦᶰoͤ

Honestly, I just bought my new PC today, I've been waiting for the past 2 weeks or so for Prime Day, but....
The PC parts sales on Amazon were extremely disappointing to say the least and I only ended up buying 4g of MX4 thermal paste there for 10$ with free shipping, followed by cancelling my Prime trial, not worth it.

Everything else, I bought on Newegg, because it was nearly 150$ cheaper for the same/equivalent parts with shipping and taxes included.

(In Canada.)

I've never heard it being called a meme but I've been cautious of what the real deals are because of this PSA by Hardware Canucks:

It's pretty garbage, as usual. Some other places like Newegg and BestBuy are doing 48 hours of deals right now too though, so at least there's that.

Like a lot of holidays, they are created to drive sales.  Amazon is just the 21st century retailer try to invent one to fit their need.  They need to liquid garbage in preparation to stock up for the holiday season.
