    Would you still offer 15% off if you couldn't get all the components due to stock levels?

        If that's the case, no chance of getting a full rig from one store - especially during a sale.
        Built ~5 rigs from MSY, never once was able to get all components in one hit, and none of those times were during a sale.

          I will make sure that local warehouse will ship all their stock to branches for this promotion.

          THIS!! I never ever get everything I want from an MSY trip, it always ends with a supplementary CPL or Scorptec stopoff on the way home.

        •  

          had similar experiences. Always issues with stock on the items that i want. Have made multiple trips to various MSY stores to get my parts when building PCs

          @hung861988: Are you going to back this comment up? I'd love to buy from you based on this promotion but everybody seems to think that you can't supply the entire lot, therefore no discount, therefore it'll be a wasted trip and everyone will just be disappointed and annoyed.

          @hung861988: There is no customer service, the last two times i needed a part I could never get hold of ANY store in WA so i went to PLE instead, great customer service from them and prices that are sometimes better than MSY.

          @hung861988:
          Voting suggests no.
          Cheapest prices with genuine customer service would make you guys the standard for all other stores to be compared to.
          Customers would be a lot easier to deal with too, which would make life easier for staff as well :)
          We both benefit in that relationship.

          @hung861988:
          Most frustrating thing is people had bad experience with stock levels so we would like to confirm if you have stock before pop in. But no one ever answer the phones, then that is bad. If you cannot afford extra staff to answer the phone, get a system so people can check and reserve stock for a few hours before the trip.

        I reckon it's easier just to email, I tried to call about an order one time and they didn't pick up. However when I emailed I got a response within minutes, way better.

      I don't even bother anymore, they don't have a phone number as far as i'm concerned.

    •  

      I once spent so long trying to get them to answer their goddamn phones that the store finally closed and I just about flipped my shit.

      Almost 1.5 hours and half a dozen phone calls.

      WHY EVEN LIST IT IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO ANSWER IT.

        remember all the times milling between model xxx or yyy

        Final decide and go into store for xxx and get the "we have no stock"
        then you change your mind and say i want yyy then and get response we dont have stock of that either

        then you get the snide remark…you should of called to see if we have stock

      Agreed. It would hardly cost anything for them to setup a simple Wordpress + Woocommerce shopping cart and hire a Filipino to input all of PARTS.pdf into it.

    • +20 votes

      MSY website and PARTS.pdf are national treasures but also function as noob filters for the people who would be better off going to HN/JB HiFi instead of clogging the local MSY :)

      •  

        The worst is when noobs still end up at MSY and asking for recommendations.

      •  

        Yeah I have come to actually like it for this!

    • +3 votes

      I have no issue with the site. I would say that the store is for people who know what they are looking for, and if that is the case, the parts.pdf is all you need. I do however, have an issue with calling for stock and general customer service. It really seems to depend on the person serving you if you get decent service or not.

    Just about to build a new i5 system, I am not sure if this deal still valid for below scenario,
    CPU: Y
    Motherboard: Y
    Graphic Card:N intel on-board
    RAM: Y
    Hard Drive/SSD: Y
    Case: with a PSU
    PSU: N (case with a PSU)

    •  

      From the ad, it looks like they want you to have a separate psu and case. Since you need to go instore, just ask them.

    • +5 votes

      Yes, should be fine. You already have onboard graphic and the case with PSU, no need to purchase extra GPU and PSU

        thanks.

    Hmm to build or wait until Coffee lake… Announcement in 1 weeks time…

      yeah this is kind of annoying, it'd be better if they delayed the deal until coffee lake at least

      it makes buying an i5 more of a gamble

        I thought it is the whole point of the promotion ? Clear out old stock and start fresh next week ? :)

          True, Intels new chips, AMD Threadripper and Vega.

    Would love to take advantage of this offer and build my dream rig with msy but:
    ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Extreme Motherboard : NA
    ASUS GTX1080 ti Poseidon Plat edition : No stock since launch
    AMD Ryzen 1800x / Threadripper : low stock = no stock on thursday / NA
    Corsair Vengeance RGB 4x8GB : no stock
    NZXT H440: NA
    SSD: available

    •  

      why Asus? I'd rather go with the X370 Taichi and a 1080Ti Hall Of Fame card, it's the best 1080Ti by far.

      Especially after the crosshair6hero bricked itself with an auto UEFI update…

      •  

        I'm open to suggestions regarding the build and will go do more research on the mobo but why is the HOF card the best 1080ti by far?

  • +4 votes

    Now that I think about it, it may be a bad time to buy

    CPU : Coffee Lake releases a week from now

    GPU : Overpriced right now due to bitcoin miners (though you can just buy a CPU with integrated GFX)

    SSD : Overpriced right now due to lack of materials

    RAM : Overpriced right now for same reason as SSDs

    •  

      Does anyone have a realistic idea of when (if?) prices may settle down, or is it anyone's guess?

      • +3 votes

        Personally I don't think the pricing for GPU, SSD and RAM will be lowered anytime soon

    Hey Rep, it would be awesome if you ran a workshop at PAX to teach guests how to build a PC and give them a hand to make sure they do it right, in return for buying all the parts from you.

      Coming really soon :)

    • +1 vote

      They are currently offering the building service for $70. If they teach the customers how to do it themselves, they lose that potential $70.

      • +1 vote

        Some people want to build it themselves but are not confident of their own skills to try it alone, and it ends up being a barrier to entering the PC gaming market. computer shops like MSY do PAX for marketing anyway, not because it's highly profitable. They will sell so many more components anyway for everyone in the workshop who needed to buy parts on the spot who might have ignored all the hardware for sale in the glitz of PAX otherwise

    Hi Hung,

    I just ordered a system last night on the MSY website and am feeling a bit unlucky to have seen this deal today!

    Is there anyway to retrospectively apply this deal? I have already transferred the money last night.

    Hey Rep @hung861988
    I bought Motherboard from your store last week (I can produce the invoice), would you consider 15% for the rest of the items if I buy only those
    (CPU+RAM+HD+PSU+CASE)

    Thanks

    •  

      Have you open the packaging of that motherboard yet ? If not, check with the store if they can do anything for you.

      •  

        Thanks for the reply, It is still in the box, but what it has to do with opening the box, I'm asking the discount for remaining items considering I already bought the mobo. I will check the store anyway, Moreover it doesn't cost them 15% on motherboard which otherwise would considering it is just sold week before. Thanks

  •  

    OP, can you select what you need and exclude some stuff and still get the discount? I.e I get everything except SSD/HDD or ram?

    •  

      Need to be a whole package bundle :)

  •  

    I have a decent case and PSU. Can I purchase everything else with this deal?

    •  

      Just buy a cheap Shaw case (built in PSU) to be eligible for the discount and try to sell the Shaw case later.
