Will the price of this build go down?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to get this build here as my first AMD build, and the price is good. I have the choice of buying it now for $300 and leaving it in my house for 3 months and not touching it, or I can buy it 3 months from now. In 3 months will the price also become $300 when it is not on sale anymore? Or will it go back up to $380?

My guesstimate is that there'll always be a good combo deal.

$35 of that $80 saving is useless AV software.

I wouldn't buy that PSU either.

The HDD is pretty poor too.

It ain't worth it now in my opinion, in 3 months it'll be even worse value.

Personally I would hold out. You have three months to shop. You have a general idea of prices there if you see anything drop pick it up. Then you could save yourself a few dollars and possibly get a better cpu, power supply, and case.

In 3 months you can buy the good parts of that and some other good parts for a similar price, that rig just isn't worth it.

Thanks for the help guys! It looks like a really good deal, but in reality Newegg just took the best CPU/Performance they have and skipped out on all the other components to get it down to $300. I remember when I just bought my motherboard, 2 weeks later Newegg had a new revision of the motherboard with DVI + HDMI for the same price. When I get back from Switzerland I will be getting this build, just with a Kingston SSDNow 16GB (for $50) and maybe some other 'improvements'.

don't get a 16GB SSD - it's a waste of time & money. Wait until you can afford $100 for one 4 times the size, 4 times as fast and not subject to stuttering.

Quite a few deals can go around in 3 months, so wait and buy each part separately from deals.

Remember part prices will always deteriorate overtime as newer models will come out. Holding off on purchases usually let's you buy better parts later on
