Default Can you find me better deals?

I'm going buy:
MB:GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P
Cpu: AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE
Ram: OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
*Not set on the ram but something similar would be nice.

Within the next few days but I wanna know if/where I can get better deals.

The best I found where at mwave.com and newegg.com. (mwave is a safe site right? never used before)

mwave.com: GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P amd 790X chipset ATX form factor 2xPCI-E(x16)/3xPCI-E(x1)/2xpci/4xddr3 w/sata2 raid,lan(gb),1394,usb 2.0&audio (cpu type:amd - socket am3) $118

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops $245 on both sites but mwave will test mb/cpu for free.

Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory $65.99

hi,

if you are set on gettin that ram, then you should take a look at this.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

its that same cpu and ram that you chose, they're just in a combo deal. seperatly they wouldve cost like $315-320 ish for both and this combo is $295.99. its not a huge save, your still saving money for the exact parts you were gonna get anyway.

Ya, I saw that combo deal it's the main reason I'm halfway set on that ram but I'm still looking for cheaper/better ram for around that price.

Going buy everything tomorrow.

No offense, but going cheaper when you are looking at the lower end of hardware is not a good way to go. It is always worth the extra $10-$20 bucks to get a good brand or model.

Default Re: Can you find me better deals?

Which items are you calling the lower end of hardware? I mean the CPU/MB's not very old and the ram's OCZ I though they where all fairly good brand/models.

How about:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS3 DHX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

There's a combo for the Phenom II X4 955 BE/CORSAIR XMS3 DHX that'll -$50's.

Those Corsair seem to be better than the others earlier. The thing to remember is that New Egg doesn't try to match up the best with the best in combos... it is usually a way to move some slower moving stuff.
