My System Specs

Default DC: Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H - $58.88 AR

If you missed the deal yesterday for the Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H board yesterday when it was $59.99 (after MIR) for the NCIX Extreme Deal of the Day, well then here's your chance to get in on the offer again (at an even better price!)

DirectCanada has the same board right now for just $58.88 after $10 MIR. You can either buy it straight from DC and pay the $9.99 for express shipping or maybe try to PM at NCIX and use the $10 GC for shipping. Choice is yours. PM is not guaranteed but I imagine it should go through okay.

Have fun. :)

Well since NCIX owns DirectCanada it would be strange if they don't PM.

Yeah, I know. I just threw in that little caveat so that no one blames me if for whatever reason their PM was rejected.

Thanks for the tip! I was kinda bummed I missed out on this board the first time. I've sent in my order, we'll see if the price match is accepted.

Well the picture, model number, listing and specs all line up as Gigabyte, so that 'other products from Gigacube' must be an error.

Regardless, I had a price match waiting approval from NCIX, and I just went to check it and now my shopping cart is empty... So I'm assuming they refused it? That sucks.

What's up with the price difference if NCIX owns DirectCanada?

Your shopping cart becomes empty every time your complete the checkout process. Your pricematch will be approved. NCIX always approves PM from DirectCanada, MemoryHouse, BestDirect and NXSource because they are the same company.

Its a marketing thing. Plus, DirectCanada is smaller and has less overhead than NCIX. That's why they manage to spell Gigabyte "Gigacube" ...
