Removed sold out deals.
Added new ones.
Of notable deals:
ASUS is selling Blu-Ray burner combo for really cheap. If you wanted Blu-Ray on your PC, this would be a good time.
MSI B75 board for $40 after rebates
Some more SSD deals, including 512GB Crucial M4 for $350. M4 may not be the fastest kid on the block, but it's hard to find 512GB drives at that price
Removed sold out deals.
Added new ones again.
GTX 560 Ti @ $160, but both are refurbished.
Since you missed out on $150 HD 7850 deal, this is the next best thing offered in that price range.
Looking to build a new computer (playing on a 4 year old macbook pro just isn't cutting it anymore).
I was planning on going with the TL;DR option 3 (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nrH6) and have already picked up some deals today (1TB HD, 16GB Ram, HyperMaster 212+).
I unfortunately missed the HD 7870 deal :(
Do you have any suggestions from the CyberMonday deals to replace the linked list to continue building?

Also, I do live VERY near a Micro Center if that helps?
What about this card? Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7850 2048MB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card
Also, this may be a dumb question but, if I buy an AMD Graphics Card does that mean I need an AMD computer? I've always thought, "I have to go nvidia because I have an intel chipset."

That HD 7850 is too expensive. Standard price for an HD 7850 is lower than that.
And no, you don't need to buy a specific graphics card brand. You can use whichever -- Intel with AMD or AMD with nVidia, it doesn't matter.
If you live near MicroCenter, the deal you can take advantage is CPU + mobo combo. I am not sure if they offer the same deal with AMD however.
TigerDirect is doing a killer deal on i7-3770k: $250, that's almost $100 savings. This deal ends today. They are doing other handful one-day only sales too.

no 670 deal :'(
quick question: I know that a good 500W PSU can run 7950 but will it suffice a slightly OC'd 7950 to match the 670?
And is this a good deal?
500W should be able to handle slightly OC'd 7950, as long as it's an Intel CPU you are paired up with. I say that because AMD FX CPUs do consume a lot of power, especially if overclocked.
HD 7970 for $360 is a good deal. Too bad you missed out on HD 7970 from NCIX -- that same card was being sold for $340 few days ago.

NewEgg is doing "Encore Tuesday" to continue some deals.
NCIX is also continuing their Black Friday deals up until -tomorrow-
If you haven't gotten one yet, you should... you have two days at most.
I removed one time deals, as well as sold out ones. Added new ones where able.
Of particular note is:
Corsair H60 on NewEgg; with rebate + today-only coupon code, you can get it for $40.
Also Gigabyte HD 7870 is available for $190.
