Montreal, QC, Canada
I only started looking at CC's sale around 3pm earlier today. Seems like I missed just about everything worth looking at? What deals do/did all of you recommend? Particularly I'm looking for monitors matching the specs I list below.

I'm looking for a 27" IPS LED monitor with better display quality & speed than my Samsung SyncMaster 2053BW.
Ideal I want:
1080p
120Hz
IPS (for the angles mostly)
16:9
5ms (2ms Grey-to-G)
one or two DVI-D Dual Link
VGA D-Sub port if possible
HDMI is not critical but great if the monitor can have all three types of ports
I don't want built-in speakers. Monitors with speakers are a wasteful extra cost for me.
I would appreciate higher colour gamut than standard NTSC 72% but it's also not critical.
I won't be calibrating the display anytime soon; but since I'm the type that uses monitors until they die 10yrs+ later, I want this display to have colour production & game equal or better than my existing SyncMaster 2053BW.

It's quite clear that you don't even know how to wash your hands properly, guess nobody even cares to teach you the manners.
It doesn't have to have anything to do with washing his hands properly. Some people have very oily/greasy skin. I do, my face makes visible oil drops (pools the size of my pores) within 5mins of exiting the shower. It never stops so I avoid touching my face a few hours after washing it. My hands themselves don't make such amounts of oils but after all day on a computer it can still make residue from normal small amounts of sweat.

Ouch, that's a solid $80 above Amazon's lightning sale price.
Really hating myself for not buying then :(

I was right in front of the line @ kennedy CC when they put the "sold out" sticker on the TTE Poseidon MX brown.
Even asked the people and they said "yeah, those sold out a few minutes ago", only to see two of them lay down there a minute later.

Been testing it out, very sturdy, similar feel to the CM quickfire rapids, but with lighting :)
Happy I didn't waste my time waiting in that long line.

Now to get my $25 rebate so I don't regret not getting the das keyboard model S from NCIX instead.

I'm pretty sure it was $129.99.

Also the ATH-M50s was $119.99. Kind of cold compared to when amazon.com had it for $85

Some of these don't match all my specs but any thoughts people on their quality vs their prices?
$210 http://products.ncix.com/detail/lg-27ea ... 8-1051.htm I'm concerned the 5ms is only G-to-G response time which is inferior to my 2053BW. I remember it was $10 cheaper during BF/CM sales
same model cheaper @ ME $200 http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX48343

$350 http://products.ncix.com/detail/asus-mx ... 5-1051.htm

$250-$20MIR http://products.ncix.com/detail/asus-ve ... 9-1051.htm I find this just to be a faster bigger 2053BW but same colours & angles

$480 http://products.ncix.com/detail/acer-b2 ... 2-1051.htm nice discount but too many extra features I don't need and missing VGA D-Sub

$200 & FREE GROUND SHIP http://products.ncix.com/detail/benq-gw ... 1-1051.htm if it had much better response and no speakers I'd consider this at this price

$450+$5 GROUND SHIP http://products.ncix.com/detail/nixeus- ... 1-1051.htm just too many features I don't need but I like all the ports

$290 http://products.ncix.com/detail/samsung ... 0-1051.htm don't want it because it has speakers, slower response time, and no DVI

$290+$5 GROUND SHIP http://products.ncix.com/detail/samsung ... 4-1051.htm same problems here

$690+$5 http://products.ncix.com/detail/samsung ... 7-1051.htm way out of my budget to begin with

$260 Aside from additional ports this is just like a larger 2053BW. http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX30594

$290 no DVI-D, response time too slow, http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX48396

$370 I REALLY like this monitor at this price, but I don't need 29" in size, it doesn't have VGA D-Sub, and response time looks slower than my 2053BW, still it's my top compromise option http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX49107
If looking for quality in terms of gamut and colour, I'd shell out for a Dell U2713HM, although the response time doesn't fit your needs. There's also the 24" U2413, which fits your price category. Any higher and you'd be looking at Eizo and Lacie.

At that point he might aswell just go for one of the newer korean PLS panels for $300 http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/QNIX-Monitor-s/1513.htm

Is it good price i7 4770k $305 save $50 looking to building new pc not for gaming put powerful for personal use fast like bulit lol or should i go for i7 4770
The 4770k is unlocked for overclocking. If you don't know what those things mean, you should go for the 4770. If you want to overclock, obviously choose the 4770k.
