I feel like whenever there is a controversial poster, it probably is the same few people with an alias.

Speculation on if prices will go up? If so, 2k10 had Kobe on the cover and from what I see, 2k16 was the last one to have him the roster.

Nah, I just wanted to be able to play him again. I figure 2k20 or others may have him to purchase as the ultimate team stuff but it would be nice to have him in a laker uniform in his natural habitat.

I had a MoCa setup in the past. I believe the MoCa adapter acted as a passthrough for the coax connection. So you would put it between the wall and cable modem on the one end. Of course you may not be using the same hardware I used, and if passthrough is not an option, then you would need a splitter or a different wall connection. But it definitely goes from wall via coax to the MoCa adapter. In my case it was between the wall and modem on one end and between wall and TV/cable box on the remote side.

Thanks. I did some trial and error since I posted. My Actiontec MoCa is after the modem by coax and connected to the switch by cat6. The MoCa coax out passes the signal to my tv. My other terminal end room coax is attached to the MoCa and the cat 6 is to my pc. There is no coax out for that one since I dont have a tv to connect to it. My throughput is exactly like when it was all cat6. Very cool.

Store canceled my pickup, paid online after a week (my fault), do they refund back your GS credit or did I lose out on the credit?

I was actually mailed a new trade credit card for the amount I returned. It came less than a week after cancellation too. Scared me that GS turned efficient on me since I was expecting an hour long customer service call to get it back.

But the note was handwritten.

But it wasn't signed. Nothing's legal until its signed...and maybe notarized. [emoji3]

That's not too bad. How recently did you find that? I think the low markdowns I saw on BS were from Xmas sales or leftover Black Friday stock.

I got it 3 weeks ago but haven't opened it yet. For some reason this walmart had about 80(yes eighty) and I watched the inventory slowly come down to about 50 before I went for one. It even showed on the end cap as clearance when I was there. About a week later the price went up to 299.

Guys, I've done Brickseek searches for Xbox One S consoles/bundles today and seen some in the "Deals" section that said they were once as low as $98 (Minecraft Creators Bundle) and two other bundles at $100 at Walmart in the last few months (believe the effective date was 12/18). But when I do inventory/location searches on them, they're back up well over $200, usually to $299. The best I could find is I think the NBA '19 bundle for $199 as "limited stock" at one location, which usually means no dice.

Anyone have any luck finding a deeply discounted One S bundle lately (or even just the console by itself)?

Best I found was the rocket league one s for 150

So I upgraded my rig from the BF sales. Went from a i7-4770(?) to a ryzen 2600x and asrock ab350 mobo. Added a WD m.2 500gb and 32gb of g.skill flare ddr4 2400 and it boots in about 5 seconds. I'm so giddy everytime I press the power button now cause I know itll be ready before I even finish adjusting my chair.

Since we're sharing stories, once I purchased a new sealed WD raptor hard drive in store at BB and when I opened it, it had a 5.25" maxtor HD with mold on the circuit board and IDE connector. They exchanged it but man was that wierd.

So I probably got my parts decided. Asrock AB350 pro4 with corsair LPX 16gb x 2 and got a ryzen 2600x for all about $450. Hopefully everything matches well when assembled. I'm still using a radeon rx480 since my monitors are 1080 at 60hz. Oh yeah, I did get a WD m.2 500gb for $90 too.

Anyone having orders canceled from bb? I keep trying to order ps plus and get the error about unable to verify my info. I tried by itself and with other items but all cancel within minutes

^ It's about a $60 difference between X and no X. Although I'm not someone who is tech savy enough to overclock with platnum grills so the more 'push button to start' simple it is, the better. Even then, would it be a noticeable difference? Both the X and non X come with the Wraith cooler. And, I guess, how much of a difference are those over the 5 2600's?

I'm seeing the Ryzen 7 2700X for around $310 at Amazon. The 2700 is only $250. Although that's without factoring in tax which I believe Amazon now collects in most states.

For review, the prices on Amazon as of right now are:

7 2700X: $310
7 2700: $250
5 2600X: $190
5 2600: $160

Thanks. I ordered the 2700x from bestbuy on sale and can return in 45 days if I dont like it so i may stick with it. If not I may get the 2600x. Mostly for gaming so I'm not sure what's the cutoff for gaming without wasting money. How is the mobo?
