Looking to get ram, monitor other things.
Just wondering how people on here do?
Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I would do a bit of both.
Save up until you are within a month of buying the whole build outright. Then start checking NCIX sales and Newegg daily specials on a regular basis.
Make sure you are signed up for newegg email sales. Every now and then you get 10-20% off ram and SSDs.
This is basically what I do, and I usually save up to 100-150 bucks doing this per build.
The catch is if you do it over a long period of time, what you bought at the beginning might be outdated by the time you start building. If you do it a month in advance you still have the option to return things.
If you do it over 2 months + you are stuck with what ever you got.
And keep in mind (mr. apple enthusiast) we still have apple's big tech release in april (which might finally give us a mac pro that isn't a piece of poop), and then we have computex which will give us a lot of new tech including things like xpoint (hopefully).
