Hardware Sales - 1050 Tis for $115, RX 580 for $200

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.

EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti ($115) - On May 12, we reviewed the Sapphire RX 560 Pulse and found the GTX 1050 Ti to perform in between the RX 460 and 470, and making it difficult to recommend given its price at the time of our review ($140). At $115 dollars, it’s easier to justify its price, Newegg has a sale on the EVGA GTX 1050 Ti for $115 with rebate card, lasting through Wednesday, May 17. This is a single fan card, making it well suited for an SFF build.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti ($116) - In keeping with the 1050 Ti trend, Amazon has a rebate offer on the Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti card for $116. In terms of FPS and gaming performance, this will perform very similarly to the EVGA 1050 Ti above. The Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti listed is another single fan card, but the 1050 Ti chip is does not require a whole lot of cooling power, so a single fan will perform adequately.

EVGA B1 500W PSU ($30) - The B1 line of PSUs by EVGA are solid budget options, but still provide quality and reliability. The EVGA B1 500W unit is 80+ Bronze certified and has non-modular “Ketchup and Mustard” cables. Cable management becomes more difficult but the PSU is more affordable than other units at 500W. Newegg’s current discount is available through Wednesday, May 17.

ASUS Radeon RX 580 4GB ($200) - The RX 580 launched on April 18 as a refresh of the Polaris architecture. This was a board partner launch, meaning the aftermarket coolers were available immediately upon launch. Over on Newegg, you can pick up an ASUS Radeon RX 580 4GB graphics card for $200 after rebate card. The RX 580 line performs well in gaming at 1080p and even 1440p depending on the title, and at $200 this is amongst the cheapest RX 580s currently.

These are some of the better deals we came across this week, check back next week for more review coverage.
