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.

MSI Radeon RX 480 4GB ($180) - First up, Newegg is listing the MSI Radeon RX 480 4GB model for $180, or $150 if you take advantage of the $30 rebate card. This is the reference design and has base/boost clocks of 1120 MHz and 1266 MHz respectively, along with the usual 2304 stream processors. This is the 4GB of VRAM (256-bit bus) variant, but will still perform well at 1080p in modern games, check our comparison between the 4GB and 8GB models of the RX 480 for more on that. The deal for the RX 480 4GB on Newegg runs through Wednesday, March 29th.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming ($510) - With the 1080 Ti launch, nVidia announced an MSRP price reduction on GTX 1080s down to $500. The MSI GTX 1080 Gaming card is available on Newegg for $510 now; however, it can be had for $480 with a $30 rebate card. This model, like all GTX 1080s, has 8GB of GDDR5X on a 256-bit bus and 2560 CUDA cores. The MSI GTX 1080 Gaming has a base clock of 1620 MHz and boost of 1759 MHz while in gaming mode.  The deal on this card runs through Thursday, March 30th.

ASUS TUF Z270 Mark 1 ($200) - Z270 boards have finally started to go on sale, with some savings to be had if you are looking to build a new Kaby Lake system. ASUS TUF Z270 Mark 1 is on sale at newegg for $200 with a promo code. This is a full size ATX motherboard, features two M.2 slots, and supports both Crossfire and SLI. The TUF Mark 1 has ASUS’s “thermal armor” as well as a backplate on the motherboard that they have dubbed the “TUF fortifier.” The ASUS TUF Z170 Mark 1 is available at this price on Newegg until Thursday, March 30th.

Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 2666 ($53) - If you need some DRAM to go with the ASUS TUF Mark 1, Newegg has a promo code discount for a single stick of Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR4 available for $53. This stick comes at 2666 MHz, timed at 16-16-18-35, and Cas latency of 16. This is available with the black heatspreader only, so keep that in mind if you’re looking for specific colors. DDR4 prices have spiked recently, and current prices have remained consistent over the last couple of months. The Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB stick is available at this price through Thursday, March 30th.

That’s all we have for you today, but be sure to check back next week for more review coverage.
