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.
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.
