Yeah, I always forget to check that.


Hey want to come over and we can melt down some bar lead for minié balls! I got the lead melter all fired up and everything!


Protip: When working with a lead melter, wear a headband to absorb sweat. One drop of water + 500g of 350C molten lead = steam explosion.

$25 instant discount with a promo code which expires tonight, and $25 mail-in rebate, bringing the total down to $39.99. It's one of the best 550W PSUs on the market and it will be very comfortable for a system like yours with a GTX 570.
I just ordered this psu. I feel pretty satisfied with the results.And a great deal.

With you alls help I have saved $50 bucks on my build on just the case and psu..Now if newegg would put that i5 2500k on sale for the same price as nicrocenter has it for ($179 ). I wouldn't have to drive to Dallas.

You could pay someone to buy a 2500k for you and ship it to you.

Heh, I used to use a lump of used solder to replace a missing foot on my old keyboard. My best friend's wife does electronic assembly work.
And it all depends on the price of gas where you are, and how far you are from Dallas... If it'll cost y'all $60 to drive to Dallas (careful with the traffic headed to Arlington), then it's not worth it.

(Is now a bad time to ponder which areas use y'all/you all as both singular and plural, and which ones use "all y'all" as the plural?)

Microcenter is about 45 min away.I have never been there but from what I have read its similar to a frys.Microcenter has some really good buys like frys. But I pay more in tax there then shipping from newegg.The day I go I will look and pick up some other stuff from one or the other.

Anyone know if newegg matches prices.
