RCA RT2870 Surround Sound System with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. $100, and its 1000W! :)

We don't have black friday here in Canada, but my parents went to a liquidation place and bought this for me for xmas.

Don't get me started on the fact that its true output is nowhere near 1000w. :lol:

Anyway, about the only notable black friday deal I got was the PSU I grabbed for an upcoming project:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817171046
It's not the most powerful PSU, but it will be more than enough for this build, especially for $20 after rebate. It also had a $10 off combo deal with this CPU heatsink:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6835103057
Also grabbed this motherboard for $40 after rebate:
http://www.microcenter.com/single_produ ... id=0309510
But overall I didn't get any of the OMG-it's-half-price-on-an-item-that-never-goes-on-sale items. I was almost tempted to grab one of the new Xbox 360 slim 4gb consoles, as they were a great deal at Target: $199 (regular price), but you get a $50 Target gift card, plus an extra $10 one if you bought it before 10am. Since I work there, I would've gotten another $20 off, bringing it down to $120 plus tax. But I don't really want a 360...

Damn....... DVDs for little under $2 a piece, I must have overlooked that in the ad. :( Oh well

Well, I got....

2 Black Wireless 360 Headsets for $30 a piece (One a Gift for my brother)
Red Dead Redemption $30
NFS: Hot Pursuit $35 (On Thanksgiving Day at Kmart)
Assassins Creed:Brotherhood $40 (Also at Kmart on Thanksgiving)
Dragon Age:Ultimate Collection $35 (Kmart on Thanksgiving again)
PS3 Controller for $40 (not the best deal, but I wasn't really gonna get it any cheaper, Plus I am gonna get reimbursed for this, gift from mom, but she said she will give me the money back that I payed for it)
Splosion Man ($2)
Portal:Still Alive ($5)
Trials:HD ($5)
aaaaand just got COD4 for PC (Steam $15)
(Had) Medal Of Honor for $35, but promptly returned it, because if I want to play a shooter, I will just play COD.

Earlier that week I got Age of Empires 3:Complete Collection off Games for Windows Live, for a whole 10 cents.

Also completely Unrelated, got Sonic & Knuckles with leftover points, and GT5 for PS3.

Still got to get a Digital Camera for my Mother, and some Cigars for my Dad.

Spent way more money than I had planned, but luckily I got a paycheck coming, at least that will pay for the Camera. =/
