BTW, the Thermaltake TR2 500W is not an 80 Plus power supply. But it carries 5 years warranty.
If I am building a gaming system, do I need a 80 Plus or better power supply?
80+ just means the efficiency. You will pay more for electricity with non-80+ PSUs.

You do not, but every decent unit carries at the very least an 80 plus certification. If you value your computer, you would get one with an 80 plus certification.

I'd take a Seasonic-built PSU over an uncertain mess (Thermaltake used several OEMs for their TR2 PSUs - some good, some bad) anyday.

What's all the fuss with ME & NCIX?

You can get the TR2 500W for $19.99 (after $6IR + $20MIR CC-specific) from Canada Computers if you live close to one of their many locations.

Need more power?

TR2 600W version for $29.99 after rebates
TR2 700W version for $49.99 after rebates

Looks like the MIR is exclusive to Canada Computers only, and special runs only from Fri.Dec.7 to Sun.Dec.9

My RFD Feedback: 100%
My HEATWARE: 50-0= 100% Positive
My HoFo Feedback ~ Deal with confidence! 100% Positive

I just PM'ed the last Star Wars headset for $54.99 from $129.99. Lets see how good it is. SWTOR is free-to-play now, so I should check that out later too.

I miss anon's detailed, organized and unbiased posts.

All I see now are amateurs who think a simple link and "nothing is good" is a contribution.

What do you want from me? There was one hot deal and the rest was no good.

Perhaps you should make the thread yourself next time.

Do you want more links when the deals are cold as ice??

I'm no amateur BTW. :P

I'm also not biased.

I'm waiting for a GTX 670, but this deal isn't that good. The huge mail in rebate kills the deal, because you also pay taxes on it, plus stamps to mail it, plus waiting 2 months, etc.

The 7970 for $269 at Memory Express was the hottest.

The unwritten rule of the OP is to post the deals in the first post as they show up in an unbiased way. So far, your biased opinion "Nothing else looks good to me" from your first post is untrue. Others have found decent deals via PM and you have not updated the first post. Please do your OP job or stop being the OP for these things. If not, leave it to the ones that actually know what they are doing.

I have updated the OP but I stand by my opinion that the GTX 670 is the only warm deal this week.

Had I waited to create the thread, people may have missed out on the GTX 670 deal or perhaps they would have forgotten about the sale altogether.

Not to mention his 'fail sale' thread the other day, in which he openly mocked both the store and the RFD mods.

I didn't mock the mods. All I said was for the mods to come get me, which they did.

Did you see a hot deal in NCIX's latest weekly sale??

Leave the ncix threads to Anon. Much better.
Yeah but what if he doesn't create them? Perhaps he's on hiatus.

If you guys keep belly-aching I will just edit the OP to say "fail thread", delete everything, and call it a day so that your beloved anon can create a wonderful thread that will make you all happy.

Please do. If you're going to take over a weekly posting job, at least do an equally good job as the last guy did. Between the lack of updates and the terrible attitude, these threads of yours just don't cut it.
