Interesting, Is Armoury PRO PC given a custom BIOS from Gigabyte for the motherboard or are the current AGESA BIOS already able to work with 4000 series APU. If you do eventually use it can you check what the BIOS version is. Thanks!

Ended up getting the MSI x570 Tomahawk @$259 online. Still waiting for a CPU.

Didn't see anything else that was worth it.

Anyone ever done a price match after the fact? Bought a couple of NAS drives the other day and now the price is $30 lower. I've submitted a ticket on their website... how long does it take for someone to respond?

Originally I want to build a mid range gaming pc (~ 1500) this year but it doesn't seem like there is a lot of good deals other than the nvme SSD. 3600 is too expensive, Maybe it is just my expectation is too high? It seems like it is better to wait for 3060 Ti and build around boxing week or so...Not sure if I should get the nvme drive now.

I don't think Boxing Day will be any different to be honest. If you like something just get it now and part your PC slowly. Maybe the pricing isn't as good as you want it to be but you have to keep in mind lots of other people are also building PC's because of COVID isolation and so the demand is higher therefore not much discounts?

Sigh, the problem is I don't have a PC now and I want to get everything at once. If not, it is a hassle after the return policy expired.....

LOL what? Those things are long, long gone from the new retail market. Best places to get stuff like that are on forum classifieds, kijiji, eBay, or shops that sell used parts. Realistically you may as well just upgrade/build a new machine at this point.

Nothing wrong with Haswell gen stuff, it's really quite competent for a lot of things and represents a good leap in power efficiency over previous generations. But, you're not gonna find that stuff on retail shelves anymore. Also with the moar core movement starting since Ryzen launched, the four cores of a Haswell i6/i7 are a bit paltry. If you can get a CPU on the cheap, by all means upgrade it. But otherwise it might be time to move on with a new mobo, ram, CPU, at a minimum.

Saw a crazy lineup today at the GVR Richmond Canada Computers today when I swung by the nearby Walmart. I wonder what they were lining up for? It doesn't seem like this thread is that popular.

Thanks for the advice. I have not paid much attention to the new components. Where can I get some ideas on new mobile, ram and CPU for work only?

From what i saw briefly lots of their items are not available for shipping or online in general so i think people had to go into the stores to get the deals.

I think only people in Ontario can order online, in a way "thanks" to COVID-19 restrictions. Everyone else had to line up, including Vancouver.

The Richmond one opened at 8am, and I went at maybe 9:15am on my way to work. Only a few people ahead of me, but I heard it was a much longer lineup earlier. Wasn't expecting much but I managed to get the ram and the sd cards I wanted. The guy in front of me bought a PC, not sure which one.

Sure. I will let you know. But I would imagine that it would work right out of the box. They probably updated the bios before shipping it.

The 4650G matches the performance of the RX550. The RX550 is not a powerful GPU, but it is impressive for an APU to match it.

Online pickup function is back this morning... I got their air fryer and electric kettle on my shopping cart. Ready to pick it up at noon possibly.

Too bad their Midea rice cooker is not on sale, but $69 for a look a like Zojunshi rice cooker is not bad.

I need a smartphone too, Motorola G fast is listed on the flyer.
