Whats a Desktop Deal:

There are many factors you need to take into account in order to make something a deal. Manufacturer, Product line, Specs and warranty are usually what to look at when figuring that out. You need to consider prices as well, sometimes you get a price so hot that it doesn't matter what company it is.

Generally speaking here are the guidelines for Intel processors:

i3 3rd Gen processor - Under $300 is usually a hot deal, Under $350 is decent
i5 3rd Gen Processor - Under $400 is a Usually a Hot Deal
i7 3rd Gen Processor - Under $600 is a Usually Hot Deal

Any good desktop deals out there today?

At 6 PM Est:

deals.dell.com



Be there, just don't take mine  :P

This is the third time in a week they are offering it and each time it's been gone in less then 3 minutes, I'm hoping to finally catch it
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I'm not after a deal per se at this point, more to get specific direction re: large SSD options (EVO vs PRO), GPU options etc. for upgrading my desktop for improved performance for video editing.

Do I post here, or open a new thread?
