  • Lets be honest. The 3060's MSRP isn't real even if you could get it.. Only EVGA is honoring this price through their website, but they charge shipping and tax.. lol MSI, ASUS, GIGABYTE variants haven't been sold at all. I feel like Nvidia/newegg left them as placeholders to be like "hey see, we have cheap 3060s, the price totally isn't 479+ as all other retailers not newegg list.

  • Thanks Paul for the info. Fry's Electronics, Yup, "See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya". I want to spend $699 for a Founder's Edition 3080 Graphics card. Unfortunately, I am not a Bot so I can't have one. NVIDIA and Best Buy and New Egg, don't care, they just want the money. I don't know why we need 3090, 3080, 3070 and 3060, when all I can get is 30-Nothing. Not buying from scalpers on eBay and Amazon - F'em. My PC Graphics card sounds like an airplane at take-off and I can't even play the games I bought for Hi-Res gaming. Not buying games and don't wanna watch IRworld videos by influencers that got cards for free, what's the point. Taking a break until I can buy the card I want in 2022, 2023......SUCKS. Not your fault Paul, just needed to rant.

  • Did buy the 5700xt and never Looked back 380e sapphire pulse prob one of the best 5700 cards 2280 mhz out of the box dident even tutch it lowest junk temp i have ever seen in amd card of this caliber both mem and gpu is easy to oc if u like i dont bother did switch to silent bios lost 3-7 fps only and its more silent energi cheep then equal nvida products. But this is for you why dont you talk about out of stock problems more then you do you know scalpers covid19 miners dont mater who you blame its an easy fix for this out of stock cpu gpu problems. stores can lock them behind upgrade packet and still they get it sold. But i doubt scalpers and miners and normal people gona make 10 orders in 10 stores witch is a huge problem atm for every one.

  • I could see the Fry's death coming nearly a year ago. Fry's used to be my go-to electronics retail store and I was lucky enough to have one within ~10 miles from my home. Shortly after the launch of the AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPU's & NVidia RTX 3000 series GPU's, I had called my local Fry's to see if and/or when they would be getting any of these products in stock. The person I spoke with in the PC Components/Tech Department informed me that they only had the bottom end 10 series cards in stock and that it was unlikely Fry's wouldn't see any of the latest inventory, even RTX 20 series cards, for at least several months. Needless to say, this was a huge red flag. Compare this to just 3-4 years ago when I bought a GTX 1080 Ti from Fry's. They had managed to get multiple AIB's of the GTX 10 series cards in stock roughly the same time as the online retailers did. Same goes for the latest generation CPU's at the time as well. RIP Fry's Electronics. You will surely be missed...

( just € 435,- / $ 525,- each ) It's better use then playing dumb games on them ! Gamers need to stop crying, grow up and realize the world isn't just a nice place ! Gaming is an waste of time !

  • I’ve been expecting Frys to close for several years now. I’m amazed it did not happen sooner. Sad what happened to them. It was by far my favorite store in its prime. I was an employee there at one point in my life and who can forget those sweet mobo/cpu combo deals with the ECS boards!? Those “last minute hardware runs” resulted in my first LCD. I was playing BF2 on my 19” CRT when it popped at let the smoke out. Rushed to Frys before they closed and picked up a 19” NEC LCD. My first real 3D card was also purchased there (3dfx VooDoo2)

  • True dat, apburner1. Fry's was cool several years ago but they always had shady ads and you really had to read the fine print of their products, in case it was a refurb or something. Bought my first HDTV there in '09--an LG 42" LED (not thin) and many PC parts over the years. The building was an Incredible Universe before it was Fry's. Who remembers those?

  • Living in San Jose I've been witness to the full rise and fall of Fry's Electronics, and all I can say is Good Riddance! The abysmal customer service in every way was appalling, and in the last 20 years or so I would only go there as a last resort if I needed something that day. Also, I have to ask the sponsor of this video, Microcenter - why the hell don't you guys have a store here in frickin' Silicon Valley where everyone I know builds their own gaming PC's??

  • I remember building several computers in the bygone days from parts all purchased at Fry's. My sister and I (I am also female) would go to the Burbank store and walk around looking at everything for hours when it was a real good store in the 90s and early 2000s. We would also go to the Burbank store a lot. I have also been to San Jose, Las Vegas and Temecula store in those times. In those days tho being female and looking at computer parts no sales help would help us get our items. They would help all the men looky loos but not us even though we had thousands each to build our computers. I wrote to them and got a nice apology. I guess salesmen didn't think two women knew anything. My Sister and I are system engineers and remember building our first rigs and soldering in the chips and parts ourselves. Still Fry's was great to have around if you needed quick parts or cables fast. RIP another one bites the dust.

  • Sad, I grew up going to Fry's in San Marcos & San Diego with my dad. Used to love the themed stores. San Marcos was themed like the lost city of Atlantis with huge fish aquariums & ruins & San Diego was Space Station themed. I bought my first ever set of computer tools & soldering iron from Fry's (still own them). They're part of the reason I became interested in IT & ultimately ended up with a career in the same field. I remember browsing the endless aisles for hours. Oh well.

I also got my Self a RyZen 7 “5800x” will this mother board be Able to except this processor out of the box? On the amazon listing it says it is compatible with a 5000 series, but the box for the board says nothing about the AMD 5000 series. Just a little confused on what I should do. Thank you in advance !

  • Fry's had been on life support for over 10 years. Even when I lived in a area with one they were either barren shelves or way overpriced to their competitors. They were destined to close just like Circuit City, Dobbs (mostly), and the list can continue. The internet started their downfall.

I got my 3080 month ago for 1240eur, now it goes for 1900eur and still sells.. So stop crying about your just barely more expensive prices

  • WOW... I honestly can't believe Fry's went out of business... Several years ago I used to go to the one in Las Vegas all the time and I and everyone else LOVED it. It was hoping. It was great because you could see and test what you're buying, a huge selection, was inexpensive, have easy returns, etc. And I loved their Cream of Broccoli Bread Bowl... I would go there just for that sometimes. Not only that, but I was wanting Fry's to set up a store somewhere along the highway between Salt Lake and Provo Utah when I moved here, we have no "good" Electronic/Computer stores, so I thought they would make a killing. This was clearly massively bad management... You can't blame this on simply "online" sales taking away business. What a sad day... :( Now I guess I would like "MicroCenter" to set up a store like I mentioned above... They would do great. Utah last I checked uses the most computers in the country per capita, and the younger generation are entirely into computers. They would like to have a physical location to go to.

  • I used to work a the Fry's in Woodland Hills in the early 2000's. It was a dream job and fun place to work. The only issue was our boss for my department who micromanaged us. But overall, Fry's was a good part of my childhood and early adulthood. I bought my first Virtual I/O headset from the Burbank location back in 1996. Purchased my AMD CPU and motherboard barebones in the early 2000's to upgrade my Intel Pentium III system. It's where I've also purchase my car stereo.

I cant tell you how many times I've driven 30-45 min in south bay traffic to the Manhattan beach location on to spend hundreds , and spend hours on building a new PC and to realize the part I had purchased was DOA, then to return the next day only to have them fight me on the return, and watch a associate re shelf and not only that but drop it on the floor then to look around suspiciously only to re shelf and add a orange circle sticker to it after knowing it doesn't work. The only thing they had going was Motherboard CPU combo's in the early 2000's but now Micro center does it so much better than Fry's could ever dream of.
