Welcome to another edition of our weekend hardware sales roundup. This weekend, we decided to get back to our low budget-minded roots. With the ongoing Great GM204 shortage of 2014 in full swing, I decided to focus on the best deals on low-budget video cards. We found three NVIDIA GPUs and one AMD GPU, as well as a great deal on an Intel upgrade bundle.
After what seems like an interminable amount of agony and suffering (also known as a work/school week), it is time to grasp at the safe refuge that the weekend offers. To celebrate such a momentous journey and the survival of those of us who made it, and a fond memorial to those who didn’t, let’s grab some games on sale.
This week we have another batch of games for sale. Last time we plumbed the depths of Amazon for some great deals, we found Assassin's Creed IV for $15, Civ V for $10, and other affordable titles. To spread the love of great savings, we decided to see what deals Newegg has this week – now that they've revamped their game software efforts – and we got lucky. It seems both 2K and Ubisoft have some major title discounts right now. 2K’s ends on 10/17 and Ubisoft’s ends 10/14.
We listed a few of the best deals below, but be sure to check them all out.
After looking over our weekend sales round-up, it occurred to us that we always feature hardware, but that's only half of what this site is about. In light of this, we're going to start featuring games that are currently on unbeatable sales. Some of these will be newer games getting major sales for the first time, others will be older games with great deals that we want to let people know about. One of the major pushes of this is to find deals that are going to be out for a bit, so daily deals will typically not be listed. Let us know what you think of this feature and if there are specific games or genres you want us to keep an eye on. As usual, keep glued to our YouTube, facebook, and Twitter accounts for reviews, sales, and build tips as we release them.
This week, we're featuring Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for $15, Wolfenstein: The New Order at $30, The Banner Saga for $10, and Sid Meier's Civilization V at only $10.
188 years ago, on 9/21, the construction of the Rideau Canal began in Canada. That has absolutely nothing to do with this weekend sales round-up. It is also a pure coincidence that two of our sales items are only $188 – I promise. This week, we feature a GTX 760 for $188, a 10-button laser gaming mouse for $35, an i5-4690 at only $188, and a 27” G-Sync monitor for $600.
We didn't feature a Weekend Sales Roundup last week due to the greatness that was PAX. If you missed our PAX coverage, then go back and read our first-hand looks at various hardware components and games over here. This week we have a mid-tower case for $70, a mechanical keyboard for $100, a 500W PSU for $30, and a GTX 780 for $450. Keep posted to our Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube accounts for more sales, articles, and builds as quickly as we can get them to you.
This weekend sales round-up lands on the anniversary of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. For those who don't know (and those who don't care but can't force themselves to stop reading), this is the volcano that destroyed Pompeii. Instead of celebrating by trying to set off more volcanic eruptions around the world, I suggest you look into these hot deals -- including a Volcanic Isles GPU -- while they last. We found a CPU cooler at $75, 8GB of low-profile RAM for $73, a 3TB HDD for only $100, and an optical gaming mouse at $30.
After a relaxing time on vacation, I got to come back to traffic court. Yeah. Lucky me... Though I'm sure you are all jealous and want to give your money to government, I have some better ways to spend your cash. This weekend's sales round-up is featuring a PNY Optima 240GB SSD, Intel's G3258 Pentium CPU, an EVGA GTX 750 Ti, and a Rosewill 650W PSU. These deals should definitely get you speeding to your next system. Keep posted to our Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube accounts for sales, hardware reviews, and helpful how-tos.
