Deals of the week: a 1TB SSD for $205 and more

— 11:20 AM on May 20, 2016

Happy Friday, Gerbils, and welcome to another of our storied deals-of-the-week posts. We’ve got a lot of returning alumni this week, and a few newcomers. Take a look.

  • Mushkin’s Reactor  1TB SATA SSD can probably write these posts on its own now, it's been in so many of them. The popular budget SSD is back down to $204.99 on Newegg today. We put the 1TB Reactor through its paces recently, if you're curious what kind of performance you can expect out of a budget SSD these days.
  • If you're looking for something a bit zippier, Intel’s 400GB 750 Series PCIe SSD is on sale for $269.99 at Newegg today. The Intel 750 Series NVMe drives are some of the fastest consumer SSDs on the market today. We even recommended the 800GB version of this drive for high-end builds in our most recent System Guide.
  • Speaking of our System Guide, we've got a couple deals on System-Guide featured processors. One of our budget-build choices, the Intel Core i3-6100, is down to $114.99 at Newegg today with promo code EMCEJGE25, making this dual-core, Hyper-Threaded Skylake CPU even more budget-friendly. This CPU is a solid choice for gaming on the cheap.
  • On the other end of the Skylake CPU spectrum, the Intel Core i7-6700K is going for $329.99 on Newegg today with promo code EMCEJFL22. This is Intel’s top-end quad-core Hyper-Threaded Skylake CPU, featuring an unlocked multiplier for easy overclocking.
  • G.Skill’s DDR4 memory kits have been featuring heavily in our deal-of-the-week posts recently, and this week is no exception. G.Skill’s Aegis 32GB DDR4-2400 kit is down to $94.99 on Newegg today, making it the cheapest DDR4-2400 memory kit of this size on the site.
  • XFX’s AMD Radeon R9 390X is on sale for $369.99 today, with a $30 mail-in-rebate dropping the cost to $339.99. If that deal isn’t quite sweet enough for a VR-ready graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, it even comes with a game code for Total War: Warhammer to make it even sweeter.
  •  If you’ve got an AMD graphics card, and you're in the market for a fancy new adaptive-sync display, the Acer XG270HU is $349.99 on Newegg today. This 144Hz, 2560x1440 display uses FreeSync for its VRR magic, so Nvidia graphcs card owners won't be able to take advantage of its variable-refresh mojo. Still, $350 isn't a bad price for a 27" gaming display.
  • If you’re not into the whole variable-refresh rate thing, Asus has its 25” PB258Q display on Newegg for $269.99. This is another 2560x1440 display with a 60Hz refresh rate. It's eligible for Asus’ “rapid replacement” 3-year warranty, which could be a big plus for some customers.

There's a chance you're looking for something we haven't covered. If that's the case, you can help The Tech Report by using the following referral links when you're out shopping: not only do we have a partnership with Newegg, but we also work with Best Buy, Adorama, RakutenWalmart, and Sam's Club. For more specific needs, you can also shop with our links at the Microsoft Store, the HP Store, and Das Keyboard's shop.

That's all for this week, folks. If we missed a great deal somewhere, be sure to share it with other TR readers in the comments.
