Thinking about doing this, but I pre-ordered when the price was discounted.

Might contact CS about it and go from there.

What's your budget and usage? With NCIX and Memory Express in Canada it's better to have someone help you put together a build with high quality parts and have them build it for $40 - $50.

I have this pcpartpicker build bundle in the cart and it seems to include an SSD:

Man, I miss the days when I could go to Blockbuster, buy three used games for $10-15 each, then drive to EB and trade them in for a new release. My best week got me three full priced pre-orders paid off for $100. Someone mentioned this earlier in the thread and it brought back good memories.

I miss Blockbuster in general, though. I was a regular at two stores, even rental wise.

Also: Wow, I hit number one on the Wall of Shame. I don't want to do that this time.

Are you going to be overclocking (since your going 6600K) if so Im not sure if the motherboard would be the best choice. I got the same motherboard and went with the i5 6500, since I wont be overclocking.

Then go with the 6500, you'll save some money. The 6600K is meant for overclocking. 6500 is supposed to be the sweet spot in terms of CPU price/value/performance.

I wasn't very big on buying games as a teen, funny enough. I just rented them from Blockbuster or I'd get them as presents.

Speaking of past good deals, I remember when Future Shop and Best Buy had a trade ANY game for Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, or Battlefield 3.

I was able to reserve COD and Battlefield 3 online, one for each store, before they shut down online reservations for them. lol

Also i dont think you need to spend that much on your CPU cooler. I went with a much cheaper option and saved alot of money. The only trade off was that it was more difficult to install.

I will never in my life forget about when Blockbuster first began trading in games, it was when the Xbox/GC/PS2 were still the main systems. I don't know who over at BB was in charge of judging the value of each game, but they done fucked up, because games that you could get for like $3 used at EB would trade in for $20-40 at Blockbuster. I'll never forge tthe rows and rows of Mechassault and Crimson Skies for the original Xbox. It only lasted a week or two until they wised up, but I made such a disgusting amount of credit at Blockbuster by spending like $50 at EB.

This is probably too much to ask but could you possibly put together an NCIX (or another place that assembles) bundle that you think is good?

I don't really need anything super high end, if it can run most console ports at 1080p (or there about) and good/decent FPS then I'd be happy. That pcpartpicker bundle kind of sounds like overkill lol.

I was at the meeting the day our Blockbuster store was told about trading. I saw the values and laughed. Went home and brought back all my old games to trade in. I swear there was a $20 minimum we had for a while. There was at least a $5 minimum on DVDs as well. It was ridiculous.

Haha, yeah.

And when they would give ten dollars for any current gen game. I drove around and bought lots of copies of NHL 2K6 for $1.89 new and $1.56 used at EB/Future Shop, then traded them in to get a DSi.

Nice. I remember that, but think I missed out on it.

I used to rent from Blockbuster every week, and when they had no late fees it was especially nice.

My Mom would buy me games, but I'd mostly rent.

I remember that Saturday morning, it was glorious. Lining up outside Future Shop with three of the dustiest games I could find

Shortly after, there was an offer to upgrade to the next gen versions of these games for $10 each, which helped a lot of people pad out their early next gen libraries
