PNY Optima SSD 240GB ($80): The SSD is still one of the best investments that can be made for a system for instant improvement. PNY's Optima is one of our top-recommended budget drives for gamers wanting an instant boost without spending much. For those who still don't know much about why the SSD is so useful, check out our SSD Dictionary and basics of how SSDs work. With an instant savings of $25 and $20 rebate, the final price of this comes to only $80 which is roughly $0.33/gb.
Intel Pentium G3258 ($65): Intel finally has a great entry in the extreme budget CPU range. The G3258 fits on the LGA 1150 socket, which allows users planning to go with a higher-end Intel chip (but maybe lack the budget currently) to use this processor until they can afford something like the i7-4790K. This also has an impressive overclock potential. We even based our GRID: Autosport build around this chip. Use checkout coupon “YLQ137662” to save an additional $10 off the already-discounted price to drop it to only $65.
EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB ($135): The GTX 750 Ti manages to kick out med-high level graphics, as our recent GRID: Autosport bench shows, for a minimal price. Ever since the release in February, this gem of a card has managed to shine for those looking in the budget market. That shining continues with this sales. Use checkout code “NEWEGG15” to drop the final price to $135.
Pick of the Week
CAPSTONE 650W 80 PLUS GOLD ($76): For mid-range systems that aren't meant to run multiple GPUs, this 650W PSU from Rosewill should provide plenty of power. We've featured the 550W version in numerous builds and now it's time to look into the 650W. This modular PSU features up to 92% efficiency, for extra savings over the life of the system, and handles 100-240V power outlets without issue -- good news if you plan to buy a system here but build it across the pond. Use checkout code “EMCHRDC34” to remove 15% more in addition to the $50 instant savings for a total price of $76.
