I see Best Buy has a six hour sale tomorrow and are selling Radeon 9600 (128 MB) vid cards for 69.00 and Liteon DVD burners (LDW-411) for 79.00 after rebates.

I would appreciate any opinions from anyone who is familar with either of these two items. FYI, I'm mostly into gaming and video stuff.

Time to wait in line !!!!

I take it at these prices there worth buying huh ?

It's their day after Thanksgiving day five hour sale from 6 to 11. I go every year 'cause they got some good deals, BUT, I usually get there at 5 (that's a.m. folks) and there's already a line. I live in Minnesota, and there's nothing like waiting in line outside in 15 degree weather wait for them to open the damn door. Then it's a mad rush. I'm up at our cabin in Brainerd for Thanksgiving, and have never been in the Best Buy up here, so that makes it evcen worse !

I was looking at the above mentioned items, plus "Call of Duty" for 29.99 and a WD 120 GB (8 MBcache) HD for 49.99. All after rebates of course.

Bala-in store only.

I'll let you know how I make out !
:cool:

There's typically 15 or 20 per store, so if your not at the front of the line kiss it goodbye.

If you don't mind my asking Trev, where you at ?


And who's picture is that anyway ???????

Yupper. I thought you had a Pentium "C" though. I gotta upgrade my RAM. Are you still using the auto overclocking or did you try the manual way ? I'm at 2.7 and running stable.

Going to up it when I get home. At 2.7, under full load, I have a temp of 95 F. max. Plenty of room to spare. Love that Alpha heat sink !

Nice... right now I get about 41 celcius full load. Stock everything though. Yes I still use the auto :D. Because whenever I do it manuallly it seems to run slower.

Well. made it back around 7:30. Overslept 'cause the alarm didn't go off. Had it set for 4:30 and at 5:14 I woke up and glanced over and said OH S%$# !

Hopped in the truck and got in line. Luckily, everbody up north here was scurring for the $ 20 DVD players so I picked up EVERYTHING on my list, plus call of duty for $ 19.99, and a 17" Samsung LCD for the Mrs.

Time for breakfast and then back out !

Let me know how you made out Trev !

:D

We picked up 2 of the ati 9600 cards. One of them is stamped v32...the other is v52. Just curious if there is any difference.

I didn't look at mine yet. Where's it marked at ? On the card itself ?

Maybe you could put a different post up on it. If you do, let me know !

Well I got there about 8:00 am, I went for one of those 29 dollar DVD players, sold out. Seeing this, I nearly ran over to the computer section. The DVD/RW was sold out as well. GODAMNIT. Yea I saw that Samsung LCD for 299.99, I almost bought it, but I decided to wait. So in the end, I drove like 45 miles for NOTHING :D
