The sales have slowed down substantially this weekend, likely in the face of America's most worshipped holiday: Black Friday. Even with the innovative holiday-forging that wrought “Black November,” sales are still dry – but there's still a few things worth a look.
There's no trade-in program for your kids' candy, unfortunately, but there are still a few hardware sales through the weekend. EVGA's GTX 980 Ti Hybrid is marked down $50, the 850 EVO makes for a cheap SSD, and some budget-class storage and cases are also running low prices.
This weekend marks the first appearance of an UltraWide monitor in our sales round-ups. An LG 29” 21:9 UltraWide is on sale for 50%, alongside a ~$700 34” curved display (also LG) and 24” ASUS display.
This weekend’s gaming hardware sales sees the return of WD Red hard drives, an Intel i5-6400 Skylake CPU, and a 750W PSU on the cheap. The WD Red drives are of particular interest to use – we actually use three of these in RAID 5 on our render rig, and feel confident in recommending them for RAID users.
Newegg's Fall sales continue, and we've picked another mixed bag this week--a PSU, GTX 960 video card, a CLC, and a monitor. Check out the hardware sales below.
We've got a solid mix of components this week--a motherboard, PSU, monitor, and a GPU. I've been upgrading my own PC, and I spotted a few deals on Newegg that made me wish I had a bigger budget.
Our new PC build lands just under $400, making for one of the most affordable builds we've posted in recent history. Granted, it's also not very powerful – but not everyone needs raw power. In the process of assembling the CSGO/DOTA rig, we encountered a number of sales worth passing along. A 430W PSU for $20 (with reasonable components, too), HyperX Cloud headset, a motherboard, and a case are on rotation this weekend.
PAX nears. Next weekend, we'll likely skip our usual sales round-up post in favor of the onslaught of on-the-floor coverage we'll be publishing. For this weekend, then, we've found some good sales: A 2TB SSD, 24” UltraSharp display, and 8GB of cheap DDR3-1600 memory.
What a long weekend. We've been furiously efficient lately and had three active members in the GN lab throughout Saturday, which led to production of a unique review and testing of forthcoming products. As we tend to do one day per weekend, we're taking it easier today and leaving you all with a simple sales round-up. This weekend, we found the Logitech G27 racing wheel (PC) for $239, the trusty i5-4690K for $230), an MSI Z97 motherboard, and a Corsair enclosure on sale.
As August continues on, we approach the restart of convention season. IDF and PAX aim to conclude the year, leading into the chaos of CES in January. Until that point, we're relying on existing hardware to close-out the year. This weekend's sales round-up sees the inclusion of a 430W 80 Plus Bronze PSU at $27, an MSI X99S Plus motherboard for $150, and an RGB mechanical keyboard for $100.
We moderate comments on a ~24~48 hour cycle. There will be some delay after submitting a comment.
