Since the launch of the RX 580 and RX 570, prices from both AMD and nVidia have been cut for low to mid-range graphics cards. If you are in the market for a graphics card around $200, we found a pair of good deals on an EVGA GTX 1060 as well as an ASUS RX 580. Right now is a good time to buy HDDs as well, with flash-based storage prices being higher than normal; if that’s of interest, we found a Seagate 2TB HDD on discount for a fair price. Even with the high flash-based memory prices, we did manage to find a 16GB kit of DDR4-3200 memory from G.SKILL on Newegg this week. We also managed to find the AMD Ryzen 1700 CPU on sale for its lowest price to date.
Destiny 2 will serve as Bungie and Activision’s follow up to the first Destiny, which was exclusive to Playstation and Xbox consoles. Destiny 2 was announced as coming to PC a few months back, but few details were given at that time. Since then, on Thursday May, 18th, there was a livestream event discussing some features of the new game and showing the first official gameplay footage. If you missed the livestream, don’t worry -- we have you covered, we’ve posted the link to it and all the trailers below.
This week’s hardware sales include a pair of 1050 Tis from EVGA and Gigabyte, an ASUS RX 580, and a discounted EVGA 500W PSU. As we get closer to Computex and the inevitable Vega launch from AMD, we should see more discounts in hardware prices.
This week’s hardware sales are scarce, but there are still some worthy ones. We found a fair price on an MSI GTX 1080 and an MSI RX 580 card, with some supporting deals on a pair of mechanical keyboards from Logitech and G.SKILL, if that is of interest.
Some of this week's best deals are not on sale for a special price, but are just well-spec’d hardware at a viable price. This week we have a pair of lower watt power supplies from EVGA and SeaSonic on sale at Newegg, along with the GTX 1070 Mini from Zotac with a small price reduction, making it one of the most affordable GTX 1070s on the market. We also managed to find a Crucial M.2 SSD slightly discounted, and the Thermaltake Contac Silent CPU cooler.
