              Linus I wanted to let you know that honestly while Microcenter is an awesome company you went to the best store they have that was fully stocked. My local one doesn't have the extensive water cooling section, the ram selection, or as many choices in general for pc building with it being limited to about 1/4 of the store. Beyond that being stocked the whole time is never a guarantee and the inventory tracking online can really terrible where it says there is 4 in stock I will pay for it and get there and be offered to switch it out(this was on a basic SSD).

                    Damn that girl is LUCKY! Actually, her brother is lucky! I have a feeling she was looking to buy him a headset or something, not a full computer.

                                    Once I got a few really nice paychecks, and bought a PS4 for my cousin right after it came out because he had always wanted a really nice gaming console. He sold it the next day for cash.
