    Global computer outlet in naperville has some pretty good blowout deals, especially in their "bargain room".. The BR has a lot of refurb or things that require a lil repair to get working.

    I know several people who bought "non working" ibm thinkpads for $400, and spent half a saturday to get them working. Deals like that.

    I will be shopping tomorrow, focus on this trading pc. Need to get a large hard drive, or probably 2 smaller ones and make sure that I can backup to both of them for redundancy.. I'll make that decision in my sleep...

    Gotta pick up some more ram, and a multi head video card. I'll report back if they have any deals..

    They sometimes have super saturdays where from some weird a$$ hour 8am-11am i think, it varies, they have spectacular deals on equipment.

    just fyi, more later...

    ok, visited there yesterday... the Bargain room didn't have any good things that interested me. I did pick up a new Nvidia e-gForce 2 AGP video adapter... 32mb ram for around $30.. Got dual monitors setup here now.

    Picked up a 80gb hd for $80 as well as a few other miscellaneous doohickeys for the trading station...

    Did not see any deals on any LCD's, but they do carry the Samsungs there. Will try again next saturday....
