"Black Friday" Tech Sales
 
I got an email this morning from Newegg with a list of early black Friday sales, including 27" 144hz 2k monitor for $300 (normally 500) and a 1TB SSD for $130 or $140, and even new RTX 2080 graphics cards slightly discounted. Pretty much any PC component had good prices, if anyone's interested in building one soon.

Feel free to post other good "Black Friday" sales you find from other places here

I've been a good MM holding off any tech purchases (considering a new phone) - except for the PS4 I bought - until I see BF ads.

I'm excited. Hoping for a gaming computer/accessories to on sale.

It's a WD Blue, so good quality, but just realized it's a 24-hour only deal and you need promo code from their email -- if anyone needs any promo codes for stuff and wants to get something today, PM me and I can send you mine.

I got a 1TB SSD off Amazon for just over $200 back in April when the lowest price around was $280+, and it's worked fine for me (Mushkin Reactor), so that SanDisk is probably a fine alternative

I'm probably going to buy a new monitor this Black Friday season. Had the same ASUS one for probably 6 years now. Have a 1060 GPU, what kind of monitor should I really be considering as the details/complexity has really grown lately I feel like? (but more likely than not I'm overblowing that because I haven't done any research yet)

Looking for a good laptop, 17 inch, hexacore i7, 16MB at least, some sort of SSD.

I had a 1060 in my last build and I'd say it would handle 2k resolution 60fps for most games around mid-high graphics. I first used a 4k monitor 60fps, but it really wasn't worth it to me, so I switched to a 1080p 144h monitor, which was a much better experience. I upgraded to my current rig with 1080ti soon after that so didn't get a ton of exposure. 144hz is the best upgrade IMO

The top of the line monitor specs would be 4k resolution and 144hz refresh rate. These go for $2,000 at the moment.

I just bought a 32" 1080 dell monitor from costco for $175 on sale from $199. But costco has excellent return policies, so i can return if i see something better on Black friday.

Perusing their ad, they have a 27" "ultrasharp" monitor for $299.

I'm not a gamer, so I won't upgrade.

144hz? not a connoisseur, but does that make a huge diff over 120? (then again, hard to find 120hz monitors also)
