Looking For A New Computer on Cyber Monday? I am not thrilled with the deals but --------




Today is Cyber Monday. Theoretically, if you are in the market for a new desktop or latptop computer this is the day that you will find the best deals.

I have been looking at all the major sites today for great deals on gaming computers optimal for Second Life, and guess what -- I see nothing out there that really looks that great of a deal on all the major web sites (with one exception at Tiger Direct that I show below).  I have checked Dell / Alienware, HP, Cyberpowerpc, Costco and some others -- and do not find many real deals on those sites.

I have been doing this all weekend and have written about some great deals over the past few days. The one at Dell for the Alienware mini-desktop  that I wrote about on Saturday is still in effect, but the others have expired.

There is one great buy that I found over at Tiger Direct, which I can recommend from personal experience. They were great to deal with when I had to return a graphics card before. No wait, and attentive.

This gaming computer has the very powerful  NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 graphics card in it which is ideal for Second Life for $799.00. This card retails for about $250.00 if you were to buy it separately, finding a desktop that costs this amount with a card of this quality is unusual.

The computer also has an very good Intel i5 chipset -- not the best offered by Intel, but more than adequate for most users. The I5 would cost you $190.00 if you were to purchase it alone. It would be impossible to built this desktop from parts alone, and purchase a Windows 8 operating system for this price.

This desktop does not have a monitor -- but is ready to go as is. A good buy but move fast because they only have a few left.
