Weekend Hardware Sales - Kaveri Motherboards, GTX 770, CM Case

By Published January 18, 2014 at 11:55 pm

Most of the RAM sales have subsided as prices have continued to hang onto their unseemly high, but this weekend sees a reduction in price in several cases and power supplies; there's a pretty big sale on most of Cooler Master's catalog right now, but we'll also be looking at some video cards in this sales round-up.

CM Storm Scout 2 Mid-Tower ($70): After MIR, instant discounts, and free shipping, Cooler Master's aggressive-looking CM Storm Scout 2 mid-tower gaming case rests at a pretty damn desirable $70. The enclosure ships with 2x120mm front intake fans and has room for 2x120mm top fans, but is best known for its high build quality and ample cable management space. At the current sale price, the case makes for a great mid-range LAN box (given its handles) or other mid-tower machine.

CM Silent Pro M2-620W PSU ($60): While looking through Cooler Master's catalog, we also found their Silent Pro-series PSU on sale -- a 620W 80 Plus Bronze power supply with semi-modularity. As with the Storm Scout 2, the PSU provides ample kick for most mid-range PC builds (and is highly affordable). Its efficiency isn't bad for the price, either.

ASUS A88X-Plus FM2+ Board ($105): For those looking to get into the APU game with AMD's latest Kaveri CPU (on an A88X chipset), ASUS is presently selling its boards at a slight discount to get the ball rolling. This A88X-Plus motherboard will support any basic Kaveri system with basic overclocking, making it a safe mid-range choice for system builders.

Pick of the Week

PNY GTX 770 2GB ($320): Including a free copy of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and a $50 SHIELD coupon with its purchase, a $320 GTX 770 with 2GB of video RAM makes for one of the best video card sales we've seen lately. Anyone building a high-end or borderline high-end gaming PC should have the GTX 770 in their scope; it's more than capable of playing nearly every game presently out at max settings and SLIs easily, giving potential expansion options in the future.

That's all for this week. Hit up our forums for support in PC component selection!

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
