nevermind

promo code not working..

Only 10$ less without the promo then picking it up local...

Still, probably not going with anything but the X-25 as I keep hearing about fail rate....

One thing is for sure, the stores have gotten better since.


I can match prices to any online retailer on certain parts, not have to wait to be shipped and not have to pay shipping as there are 3 compusa retail stores and the Tigerdirect outlet in my area.... I compare every price to newegg & do a google search. They are all within $5 - 10 most of the time

The more I research the less I even want to... I see an awful lot of people needing rma's... They sure are faster, but considering the price per GB and the fail rate I am starting to understand why people are still running HDD's

I think if I do it Im going with the Intel X-25....


Thanks for the feedback tho...
ahh thanks for clearing that up, i didnt think they had stores, as they closed the one in Spokane (the only dedicated PC store we ever had) i wish we had a fry's or a microcenter.....

I'd take a microcenter any day.

But for convenience I like them... Most PC components are about $10 above newegg, but some are not.

Got my HAF932 for 125 on sale....
