Gentlemen (and Ladies), Start Your Gaming Rigs!

Its ultra-portable.

It's an ultra-portable PC.

Vroom, Vroom, indeed. 🙂

 

Being “Cyber Monday” (a term which certainly will be looked back upon in disgust and shame once our robotic overlords reign from their underground lairs), you can obtain some really good deals online today for upgrading your gaming (or resurrect your craptastic) rig to play some of the more difficult games, system-spec wise. 

OtakuDad recommends Newegg (year-round, but today especially), and Amazon.com has some pretty decent motherboard deals going on now.  As far as brick-and-mortar stores, I am a big fan of Fry’s Electronics (for the prices, not the pressure-y salesmen), and Micro Center (always good deals there as well). 

Also, having built and modded-slash-upgraded a handful of computers now, if you have any questions on building a rig for any purpose, drop me a comment or an email, and I’d be happy to help you decide between a couple different components!  (Or just nudge you in the right direction to get you moving, too!)

Happy start of the Advent season too!

 

Edit: I also want to make sure you know I’m not working or paid by any of these people…I just want to spread the word on deals that I would get, if I had money. 🙂  In that same vein, I got an email with this about Amazon’s upcoming video game sale: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=pe_23970_10841670_st_img_1/?docId=1000304231.  I have no idea if it’s worth checking out or not, but I figured I’d pass it along.  We’ll check it out when it’s live tomorrow.
