It was higher several days ago.
I brought mines from best buy and it was the same price as the 55 inch, I brought the 48 inch because I'm using it as a PC gaming monitor not a TV
It was still in the 1800 range when I looked last on Amazon at the 55. I planned on holding out for a deal on the 48 because I really wasn't trying to pay 1500. Decided to pull the trigger now, though, since the 55 is cheap enough. I had some rewards points saved up so that handled tax and a little more . I've been handing Amazon a grip of money the past 2 months.
Oh yeah I didn't list the specs of the PC I built last Friday
Case: Phanteks P600S
CPU: RYZEN 5 3600
Cooler: Noctua the big ass one with two fans
GPU: FE 3090
Monitor: 2 1440P LG 27gl83A
Mobo: MSI B550 Tomahawk
RAM: 32 Gkillz neo or someshyt I dunno it has RGB and is way too tall
PSU: Some 850 corsair gold
SSD: 1TB - 970 EVO nvme/ 2 500GB crucial SSD
HD: Some bullshyt I've had for years that contains more of my interesting files and folders
NZXT H510 ATX Mid-Tower
Props.. I hope it works for me since I’m in Canada... i found a seller in Canada that has stock so I’m returning the monitor I bought and copping this next week
4k 120hz oled gaming finally
Dope they are ones building my custom pc, they better fukk it up I never used them before.
Imma let you come to your own conclusion, but on my end, shyt is just different even without taking OLED into account because I played on the B7 before this one
Copped that Asus VG27AQ 1440p monitor over the weekend brehs as it was on sale from BBY. shyt is glorious Been missing out all this time running sub $130 CAD monitors for my dual screen setup.
Did my first build over the summer to replace the old laptop. Maybe 20 years since I was a teen, heh. Even then never really did one from scratch. It's mainly for Photoshop/AI and heavy multitasking for my small business but figured I'd want to game a bit when in office and not downstairs in living room. Just COD, really.
B450 Tomahawk MAX
Gaming X 1660 Super
16GB G.Skill Ripjaws
500GB WD M.2 750SN with heatsink. Have a few HDDs attached but will migrate those to an SSD. Old photos and shyt.
Seasonic Focus 750 gold semi-modular - honestly thought this was overkill, but at the time Amazon and Canada Computers were bone dry for lower wattage PSUs. Kindly glad now that I got this one if I decide to jump into this 3080 hoopla.
Fractal Design Meshify C case
and then of course some Deepcool RGBs (top mount/exhaust) as I wanted to go with a theme so based it off of the HitGOAT colour sceme. Pic in spoiler. Intake fans are stock from the case.
Overall happy with the build. Was expecting the 1660S to choke itself when I bumped it to 1440P but it handled Warzone well with most things set to high/ultra. Maintained solid 60-70 fps. Question will be case real estate if I get one of them 3080s. Intake fans may need to be moved up/down for clearance.
Thanks for the tips in here brehs.
Breh that is great if you got it for that, because that's basically retail MSRP after taxes since most are 1049-1149 CAD pre HST. Which card?
Most I've seen on Kijiji and FB Marketplace are min 1600-1800. And the 1600 ones were all opened for "testing"
Some guy put up the 3080 FTW3 Ultra on Amazon.ca for 3K cad, kept dropping it a bill every few hours, looks like it sold once it hit 2400 CAD, so basically made double the profit Even his shop name was "sorry for scalping" lol - I'm still 9/24 on the EVGA notify waitlist, never seeing that thing till new year
My 3080 is coming today
What’s a good ssd for installing games to, I need around 2tb to be safe
It came I got this one.. it came with the receipt and it was $1128 with taxes so I didn’t pay too much extra
