Battlestation Components (4)

The vicissitudes pull me to and fro. \(´д`\) (/´д`)/

That PSU sale I was waiting on arrived. Not only does it come at a dramatic discount it is also the exact model that I want.


So a little updating for the chart is in order.

$37 difference. But guess what? I FORGOT TO SIGN IN TO SHOPRUNNER.


Regular Super Eggsaver shipping time? FOUR TO SEVEN BUSINESS DAYS! I'm going to see if I can contact Customer Service and have them add it on.

Nope. They can't alter the shipping after the order has been placed. They offered to void the transaction so I could reorder it but I have a sinking feeling the moment they did that I'd go to the product page and see that the item had sold out. I'm not one to tempt fate. Unnecessarily, anyway.

Back to waiting for the SSD. There have been sales on Corsair and Crucial SSD's all week (at great prices, too) but I'd prefer to get me hands on a SanDisk and I'm willing to wait. *nervous foot tapping*
