I have a question to the experiences RFD holiday shoppers. I got a few pc parts on Nov 10th which are priced slightly lower on Canada computers website now. Their extended holiday return policy says they will price match until January 2020. But I'm not clear on the part where they mention black friday exceptions.
From their website:
"Price Protection is only applicable on regular priced products and not applicable to products with rebates, special pricing for: Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Boxing Day and Week periods, and Door Crashers"

The items that are discounted are available to buy now on their website. Does that mean I can still price match or its too late?

I hear you about the fan rattling as I deal with worse with the screech from the GTX 670. Also when I had the GTX 1080 Ti reference it didn't do what the GTX 670 can do at times but it was loud in terms of fan noise. So yeah that may be a very good reason to stay away. LOL! As for temperatures though 85 degrees Celsius is nothing. These cards can handle these temps.

Thanks as now I have something to consider. The GTX 2060 might not be the greatest 4K card but from what I see looking around at games from 2018 and 2019 and of course with older games I think I would be fine with this card. It's a maybe ... and definitely more possible with settings turned down a bit.

$359 plus tax for this or upgrade my PS4 to PS4 Pro for $199 plus tax or $299 plus tax to upgrade my Xbox One S to an Xbox One X or ???

Also thank goodness I get my 4K tv tomorrow so I can check out 4K videos of game play using this card on YouTube or from raw downloads.

I need a new laptop for my daughter in University. Can one of the more knowledgeable people here help me out as I have no idea what is good bad or decent for her needs.

I was considering one of these two. She's going to be in University for the next 5 years becoming a teacher, She's not into gaming at all and I don't believe she's doing any heavy graphics or designing with her course load.

Will either of these be adequate? Thanks!

You can probably save money by not buying anything with a touchscreen or dedicated graphics. If she does need a touchscreen or a convertible type laptop, the flex is pretty good. You can however probably get a better deal on that directly from Lenovo.

I am thinking of building a new gaming rig:

3800X - $449
Asus TUF X570 - $224
Corsair Vengance RGB Pro RAM - $99
RTX 2060 - $369

This would be my first AMD build since forever. I might look for some better RAM during BF. Don't care for RGB lighting.
Would I be better off looking at an Intel build for gaming?

I am looking for a mid range card with 8 GB RAM for 4k video editing with Divinci Resolve. Coming from a 1060 with 3 GB in an i7 8th gen Omen. Recommendations given what we know about Black Friday pricing?

I would actually recommend a convertible laptop if within your budget. Most course material is now electronic, and it's really convenient to be able to take notes during class and/or work directly on the PDFs. So I would recommend a convertible laptop (2 in 1) and a pen. Really really really convenient. And your priority probably ought to be battery life & weight; so think about avoiding crazy screen resolutions (4K) which eat up battery like crazy; same for dedicated video graphics, unless your daughter likes to game. 14 inches max because she'll be carrying that laptop all day.

The Ryzen 2700X at 199.00 paired with the ASUS ROG Strix X470-F at 159.00 looks very tempting.

What are the odds Amazon matches any of these prices?
