GOT IT!

Xbone Forza Edition. Nice dark blue with a controller to match.
Tomorrow morning when it gets done patching and downloading, I hope to be able to play it.

I wanna find a nice set of kitchen knives to replace our aging Cutco set. A nice set of pots and pans to go along with it would be cool too. Glass top non-stick in copper color or maybe red.
Cutco does have lifetime sharpening if I remember right!

Looking for a 4k TV even though I don't have hd cable but I'm also going to be getting the ps4 pro too.

DDR4 Laptop Memory. Dual channel, 16 or 32 GB.

A PCIE m.2 SSD that fits into a Dell Latitude E5270, but won't quite break the bank. Wishful thinking most likely.

A smaller form factor laptop cooler for use with a 12" laptop.

A good quality 240 GB SSD for $50 would be nice. Other than that not much. I just do get much enjoyment out of material things that much anymore.
Ebay will have the 250 Samsung Evo 850 for 70 on Cyber Monday

Maybe another MX200 drive. Paradoxically, they are significantly more expensive than the (generally) superior Evo 850 drives of equivalent storage capacity. I know MLC vs TLC and all that, but still . . . only the MX200's warranty and alleged longevity are superior.

Expecting good deals on a 1 TB MX200 may be foolish, though.

I ordered a 40" 4K UHD TV, with HDMI 2.0 and HDR, for $219.99, Newegg special. Seemed cheap enough. Hopefully it doesn't totally suck for PC usage. Want to replace my 24" monitor for desktop usage. I think a 40" will *just* fit on my desk.

Edit: Got it today (Weds). Not bad. YouTube 4K videos look ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I don't know if the videos are encoded with HDR, or if YouTube can even serve up HDR videos, or if the UHD HDR TV is processing the video, but they look... WOW!

I wish viewing text forums on Windows 10 was as good. I think that I boosted my res above 4K using AMD VSR, then adjusted the Windows scaling factor to 1.25x.

It has a built-in sharpening filter, that apparently, cannot be disabled in 4K video modes.

Just this:
http://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/product/camera-lenses/af-s-dx-nikkor-35mm-f1.8g.html

I want a prime lens for my D3300. I have the two kit zoom lenses...but want a good prime.

Nikon (and everyone else) has the 50mm 1.8 on sale...but I think it's just a bit too long for my needs.
http://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/product/camera-lenses/2199/af-s-nikkor-50mm-f%2f1.8g.html

Note...I don't want used, refurbished, or gray market. The lack of warranty kills the deal IMO.

WOOT! Got it. Wasn't on sale for Black Friday...but a couple of places have it for Cyber Monday. :)

Snagged the 3DS from Walmart for my daughter, not terrible at $100. Then 10 used games from Gamestop for $30 for it and an adapter for $10 - so all in $150 with taxes.

Also picked up the TCL 55" 4k Roku TV from Target. They had a lot of TV's left over, there were 4 just sitting around. $412

Got a Evga PSU for $5
A case for $10
AMD CPU + mobo bundle $100
Just need some memory for ~$40 and I can run Linux off of a USB. $155 build :)

edit; completed the build, had to spend a little more on case/RAM but still made it in under $200
