To be honest, I was just thinking that I would prefer longer lasting parts over a slight performance upgrade and parts that may kick the bucket a little earlier. I don't have any experience overclocking so let me know if I'm off the mark with that statement. If someone can convince me that the increase in performance will be that significant, then I may consider it. Thank you for your response Muffin Man!
In regard to purchasing these items from Newegg, how can I go about getting the best deal? I don't have a very good idea of how Newegg does their black Friday sales. I've noticed that they've had daily deals on each day in November. Is my best bet just to check their sales each day and hope one of my parts or something similar goes on sale and buy them over time? I would like to have all of the parts purchased by the end of the month.
I guess the question I most want answered is: does Newegg tend to have any broad sales on black Friday? And by broad I mean like the 10% off sale they had on a large number of video cards a few days ago. If not, there's probably not a good chance I will be able to take advantage of many of the deals now since I already have a shopping cart picked out. Thanks again for any help you guys can offer.
