Been looking for a deal with these exact components for a while. Pcpartpicker will show you can't build one for anywhere NEAR this cheap. I assume the bios issue has been resolved, but if not, be sure to update bios as soon as you fire it up to avoid problems. (you also get a free powerbank/flashlight, woo hoo) Smilie

Since slickdeals didn't bother to add the link I added when the thread was created: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Pr...-_-text-_-

Costco has this for $1099, new
Non-members have to pay like $60 extra.
You're better off getting a membership to get good customer support and warranty.

Refurb is 3 month warranty probably.

If they have this, it must be in-store only. Nothing like it on their site. I've been hovering over this type of deal for weeks, and nothing new or refurb or build-it-yourself comes close from any website or manf I could find.

They had it online for like 3 hours. Sold out and took it off.
It's only sold in stores at $1099.

Right, by the time they added tax and shipping and 6% I was at nearly 1300.

I heard a glove hit the ground and checked. $1018 for the same or better specs on pcpartpicker, including a full cost windows 10 license.

I just did it yesterday and came out over 1800. Love to see yours. Just tried again: 1500 with no optical drive if I went with cheaper parts.

I'd probably spend more on the cpu cooler and power supply but I'd also probably skip the optical since I have two externals and I'd use a cheap OEM windows key.

Certainly the predator has some nice parts and build quality along with a name brand, but this would be new parts with a full warranty.

Sorry, first post here. I assumed since slickdeals ASKED ME SPECIFICALLY for the URL and I put it in, it would add it to the deal somehow. Since they didn't, I've edited the post. Thanks for your encouragement, it's long-time members like you that make sure I'll never ever post anything again.

You didnt fix it after I told you the first time. I could have been far more condescending and in fact, I dont see anything wrong with what I said.

If you cant handle some light weight bantz like that then certainly this is not the place for you.
