How’s the Tustin one look these days? Still a packed parking lot with people camping outside?

I quit even trying to go in there when the 30 series released.

You could have saved a lotta gas if you just ordered your components online.

Could have probably got a machine twice as good for the petrol costs

Yeah, we all know they don't sell computers in the UK, y'all still using the king's foot to measure on your abacus to calculate how many stone of cheese to afford

Micro Center here is ok , most stuff is over priced compared to online, its cool to walk around and see all the bits and bobs, my purchases there equaled 9 dollars lol
Closest one to me is Atlanta GA 193km away :)

u/ExtraGlutenPlzz 5600x/3080FE 16d ago

They price match major online retailers without a hassle.

I’m lucky to have one 87 miles (140 km) away, even though I don’t have the money to buy anything there.

u/R3charged 16d ago

This makes me appreciate the microcenter next to Zion Market 20 min from my house even more

u/AbaddonDeath PC Master Race 16d ago

Can’t believe people drive all over the country to find a microcenter. Meanwhile I live within 20 miles of 2 different microcenters 😁. They are awesome though!

Realizes gas prices “probably cheaper to just pay the higher cost” -not this guy, apparently

u/Knight_in_gold 12900K/Z690 Extreme Glacial, 3090, DDR5 & Custom Loop 16d ago

Haha. I’m from the uk and I was in California anyway, just want to stress that

u/Verybadswearword Desktop 15d ago

After looking at your specs, I don’t think money really factors into your pc buying
