DDR4 prices continue to increase with no sign of slowing down, but this week Newegg has a sale on a 16GB kit of DDR4 from G.SKILL for $102. Sadly, this is a good deal in the current market. Non-flash storage devices have become cheaper as more of the market adopts SATA and M.2 SSDs, including a sale going on for a Seagate 4TB mechanical drive for $100. We have also highlighted a decent deal on a 750W PSU from Thermaltake, in addition to a discount on the Ryzen 1700 CPU.
Today we have some more hardware sales for the weekend, including a SeaSonic 620W PSU, Gigabyte GTX 1070, and ASUS Z270 motherboard. An Intel NVMe SSD makes a special appearance in the listing. Sales are limited right now, particularly on GPUs given the precipitous launch cycle, but there are still a few active deals out there.
GPUs have been featured in the majority of our hardware sales articles, which is good news for those looking to save some money and still be able to play AAA titles at higher refresh rates. Flash-based memory prices have also increased since the beginning of 2017, though a Plextor M.2 NVMe SSD is on sale for $40 off on Newegg.
The GPU market has been shaken up recently with the release of the nVidia GTX 1080 Ti and AMD’s inevitable Vega launch. Discounts on GTX 1080s and RX 400 series cards are available and widespread at this point, so we’ve highlighted some deals for those looking to upgrade or build a new PC in 2017.
The nVidia GTX 1080 Ti launched recently (we reviewed it here), and with that launch has come some price reductions on both nVidia and AMD graphics cards. We also found an ASUS TUF Z270 motherboard for $200 with a promo code, and 8GB of DDR4 from Corsair for $53 (also with a promo code). As we get closer to the inevitable launch of AMD’s Vega cards, graphics card prices will be important to keep an eye on.
