Default Re: Thermaltake 3 day sale...

^ That's very unfortunate. My parents control most of the money I have since I use them as a bank. They're usually pretty open to whatever I want to get, but considering the circumstances, I don't think they'd allow me to make this purchase, especially considering that my dad hates buying anything used/refurbished.

sometimes people order stuff, find it on sale cheaper and just return it and state some BS reason, thus, brand new stuff sold as refurb...
