My System Specs

Default Buy now or wait til next NCIX sale?

Hey HWC,

As many of you know, i'm in the process of selling my 5200+ mobo/cpu/ram.

I am just wondering if i should buy my processor tomorrow or wait til NCIX's Canada Day.

I plan on getting the Phenom II 945 for ~$140 PM'd. Is it worth the wait?

Thanks y'all

I'm in BC so HST doesn't really matter.

Why not the Phenom II X6 1055T? Only like $60 more.

And isn't BC getting HST too? I thought you guys were...

He's saying he is already paying GST/PST already anyways, since NCIX is in BC he has to pay both. I would just buy now if the CPU is the only thing your looking to buy. I doubt they'll have a crazy price on it or anything...

Ahhh yes. My mistake.

Never know, could be a sale. It's only 2 days to wait anyhow.

Do what I do. Put what you want in the cart....then leave it until you look at the sale. Cart is PROTECTION! :D

What digikid says.

it could be a better price, a shipping deal or something that makes a little difference.
just so you don't regret, wait 'till the sale is up. Your pricematch won' t go anywhere!
I noticed that when you PM from NCIX, "surprisingly", the items you were interested in are often in the following sale at the PMed sale price you were looking at or a little lower..some would say it's just a coincidence...I guess they see PMs as potential imminent sales and get ready for it (my take on it).
