Deals of the week: an LG DCI 4K IPS monitor for $799 and more

— 12:38 PM on December 4, 2015

Happy Friday, gerbils. We've pored over plenty of ads and websites looking for the best prices on worthwhile gear this week. Here's what's happening.

  • LG's 31MU97Z-B 31" monitor has an IPS panel with a DCI 4K (4096x2160) resolution, and it's just $799 on Newegg. This discount runs until December 9.
  • A 4K monitor needs a fast card to drive games at its native resolution. Gigabyte's Windforce GeForce GTX 980 Ti is just $600 right now at Newegg. In our roundup of GTX 980 Tis, Gigabyte's triple-fan Windforce cooler performed well, and for that price, the GTX 980 Ti is an excellent value.
  • Those looking for some fast solid-state storage may be interested in a 500GB Samsung 850 EVO for $143 after promo code EMCKNAP25. This drive comes with a download code for Assassin's Creed Syndicate, which could be good for folks who either want to play the game or flip it for some extra savings.
  • Folks gearing up to build a Skylake-based system could do well with Gigabyte's Z170X-UD5 motherboard, selling for $160 at Newegg right now. This board is built with Intel's Alpine Ridge USB 3.1 controller, along with a host of other goodies. That price is already pretty low, and a $10 mail-in rebate could sweeten the deal.
  • Building a new system means a new OS install, and Newegg's got that covered, too. Windows 10 Home is a cool $80 after promo code EMCKNAP67.

That's it for now, folks. Be sure to spread the love to your fellow gerbils by linking any great deals we missed in the comments.
