Hardware Sales - GTX 1080s at $500, 8GB RX 480 for $230

By Published March 07, 2017 at 10:42 pm

With nVidia’s recent GTX 1080Ti announcement and GTX 1080 price cut, graphics cards have seen reductions in cost this week. As stated in our last sales post, hardware sales are hard to come by right now, but we have still found some deals worth noting. We found an RX 480 8GB for $200, and a GTX 1080 for $500. DDR4 prices are still high, but some savings can be had on a couple of kits of DDR4 by G.SKILL.

XFX Radeon RS RX 480 8GB ($230) - Newegg currently has a sale on the XFX Radeon RS RX 480 8GB variant for $230. This card can be discounted $30 down to $200 with a rebate card, and for a limited time comes with a copy of DOOM. The XFX Radeon RS RX 480 comes with a base clock of 1288 MHz, 2304 stream processors, and 8GB of GDDR5 memory on a 256-bit bus. The deal on this XFX RX 480 runs through Monday, March 13th.

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200 ($110) - DRR4 and all DRAM prices in general are high right now, so finding a 16GB kit running at 3200 MHz is a good deal. The G.SKILL Ripjaws V series is the mainstream line-up from G.SKILL and this black colored kit comes with a cas latency of 16 and timed at 16-18-18-38. Newegg’s sale lasts through Monday, March 13th.

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-2666 ($100) - Sticking with DDR4, we have another 16GB kit of G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series. This kit runs at 2666 MHz with cas latency of 15 and timings at 15-15-15-35. The $100 price tag is only applicable to the blue heatspreader, so keep that in mind if trying to match color themes. This deal runs concurrent with our previous deals ending Monday, March 13th.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 DUKE ($500) - As stated in our coverage of the GTX 1080Ti, nVidia had planned to cut prices on the GTX 1080 (non-Ti) to $500. A week later, we’re seeing that price decrease as Newegg has the MSI GTX 1080 DUKE on sale for $500. All GeForce GTX 1080s feature 8GB of GDDR5X on 256-bit bus and 2560 CUDA cores. The MSI GTX 1080 DUKE is a triple fan card with base and boost clocks of 1708 MHz and 1847 MHz respectively. This deal has no listed expiration date at the time of writing, so we may finally be seeing GTX 1080s closer to the $500 mark across all AIBs.

That is it for this sales post, but be sure to check back later this week for some exciting review coverage.
