I would be really tempted if it was for Red Dead 2.


#42

Same.


#43

What trying looks like :kissing_heart:

But you have to really try and use local comparison sites, and manually go through some sites, as otherwise you get something as random as Wallmart before your local stores

You Canadians use French right? Try that

I’d love to snap up some of these deals, but I have to repair my bloody porch. Home ownership ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.

But just yesterday I saw a 1TB m.2 SSD for $139. Just SATA though…


#45

Damn, that’s a pretty good deal, considering. And who honestly needs more than 6gbps? I’ve barely noticed a difference in my NVMe vs SATA SSDs.


#46

Red and gold PS4 controllers are 39.99 at Walmart.

If you are a first time shopper at Walmart you can use this coupon code and get $10 off. The coupon can be used on anything. But item must be more then $35.

PS4 controller Black is $29.99 at dell.com


#47

now im tempted to see if I can get that instead of the samsung 1tb SSD that costs almost the same


#48

This is neat. Thanks dude


#49

For EU:

Western Digital My Book 8TB on Amazon Germany:

Was ~180€ until yesterday, so it’s still a~35€ discount.


#50

Those have pretty solid drives inside. Good for NAS.


#51

I’ve had one of these for about a year now. @sgtawesomesauce is right about good drives inside them. Not noisy like some spinning disk externals, either.


#52

Has anyone seen a good deal on a UPS? Have no idea what the VA is of the unit I have (“stole” it from work so probably not that great). Saw a nice deal on a 1500VA from CyberPower that was Pure Sinewave but alas its no longer valid. Main components would be computer(Ryzen 7 @ 3.9GHZ, 1080Ti), steering wheel, pedal, speakers.


#53

Are you sure? I am kind of tempted to gut one.


#54

The higher capacity ones seem to be WD Red, which are intended for use in a NAS. Just don’t write anything to it before you take it out of the enclosure (hardware encryption, although I’ve read you have to enable it in the software).

And maybe have some Kapton tape ready, just to be sure (google “hdd 3.3v issue”).


#55

I bought 6. Gutted them, they’re spinning in my R510 right now.

Thanks!

Any time.


#58

Amazon Germany still has the 250GB and 500GB Crucial MX500 on sale for 39€ and 69€.

And a 64GB microSDXC from SanDisk for 10€.


#59

Any suggestions on where I can find some “cheap” (relatively speaking) refurbished servers? I was looking around places such as Ebay and wondered if there were any better places.

I do not believe my local flea market (which is only open on Sunday anyways) has such a thing.

My requirement is that they have 3.5" HDD bays though and probably at least 8 CPU cores (2x4 or 2x6 CPU cores is allowed).


#60

$399.99 for a reference blower style Vega64.
