Deals of the week: cheap SSDs and dense DDR4 RAM
Avast, ye landlubbers! There be booty in the seas, alright, but it's not much use if ye can't find it. Fret not, me pretties, your captain has scoured the seas far and wide and has already picked the best spots for plunderin'. Take a gander at this deals map 'ere.
- The OCZ Trion 150 is one of the best budget SSDs we've ever laid eyes on, and Newegg is offering the 960GB model for only $219.99. Shiver me timbers! OCZ is also offering a $30 rebate card that could bring the price down even further
- Mushkin's ECO2 SSDs have been frequent faces in our weekly deals, and they're back on the menu today. Newegg has the 512GB version up for $109.99, which is nearly impulse-buy territory for this size class of SSD.
- The storage deals aren't over yet. Seagate's Backup Plus 4TB external USB 3.0 hard drive is on sale at Newegg for $109.99 after promo code EMCEHHF74. Better rush over, though, this deal ends at midnight today.
- DDR4 prices have been low for a while now, but there's still a sticker premium associated with 16GB DIMMs. G.Skill's Rijpaws V 32GB DDR4-2133 kit (with two 16GB DIMMs) is bucking that trend, though. This kit is on sale at Newegg for $99.99. Not only do you get 32GB of DDR4 RAM, you still come away with two DIMM slots open. What's not to like?
- Next up is a visually appealing deal. Newegg is running a sale on Asus' ROG MG278Q monitor for $419.99. The MG278Q is a 2560x1440 144Hz TN monitor with FreeSync support and a 1-ms response time. That's a sweet price for a high-resolution FreeSync display.
- If you're on the market for a more simple monitor, then look no further than the LG 24MC57HQ-P. It's a 24" 1920x1080 IPS display with maximum brightness of 250 cd/m² and a three-year warranty. Newegg has this monitor on stock for only $119.99.
- Last but by no means least, Asus' H170 Pro Gaming motherboard is on sale for $109.99 at Newegg. The H170 Pro Gaming is a socket 1151 motherboard with USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C ports, an M.2 slot, and an Intel LAN controller. If you're not planning on overclocking your Skylake CPU, this is an almost unbeatable price for a full-featured mobo.
That's all for today, ye mateys. If you spot a good deal out there that your captain has missed, then post it in the comments section below. There will be a bottle of grog for you.
