Deals of the week: a Dell G-Sync monitor for $470 and more
Happy Friday, gerbils. It's time for another round of the best PC hardware deals we could find on the web. Here's what we panned out this week.
- Best Buy has Dell's S2716DG G-Sync monitor for $469.99, no rebates or codes necessary. This 144-Hz display uses a 2560x1440 TN panel to show off its variable-refresh-rate magic. TFT Central thinks this display is a solid choice for gamers, but it might need some work with a colorimeter to be ideal for all-around use. We think this display is a solid choice for an entry-level 27" G-Sync monitor, and its price is near its historical low.
- Newegg has Gigabyte's GA-X99-Ultra Gaming motherboard for $239.99, $40 off its suggested price. This board is part of Gigabyte's recent salvo of refreshed X99 mobos, so it's bursting with features like M.2 and U.2 connectors, Intel Alpine Ridge USB 3.1 ports, RGB LED lighting throughout, and flashy red-and-white accents. Thunderbolt 3 support is about the only thing missing from the Ultra Gaming, but we can't complain for this price.
- Cooler Master's MasterCase Pro 5 is $124.99 at Newegg. That's the lowest price we've seen for this all-metal, highly modular case. The MasterCase Pro 5 has long impressed us with its blend of solid build quality, cooling performance, and quiet running. We didn't give it a TR Recommended award by accident.
- Intel's Core i5-6600K CPU is $234.99 at Newegg with promo code EMCELGM23. This quad-core Skylake chip comes with an unlocked multiplier for easy overclocking. It's a fixture of our Sweet Spot builds in recent System Guides. Just be sure to grab a CPU cooler if you're taking advantage of this deal—Intel doesn't incldue boxed heatsinks with its Skylake K-series CPUs.
- Need a Z170 motherboard to go with that Core i5-6600K? Newegg has the TR Recommended MSI Z170A SLI Plus for $109.99 today. That's a great price for a rock-solid Z170 mobo, and that price matches the board's historical low.
- Perhaps you're looking to build a small-form-factor firebreather. If so, Newegg has Gigabyte's GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 Mini-ITX motherboard on sale for $134.99. That's a sweet price on a premium Mini-ITX mobo with built-in Wi-Fi, Alpine Ridge USB 3.1, and a rear-mounted M.2 slot.
- XFX's Radeon R9 Fury X soldiers on at $399.99. If you're looking for the fastest Radeon around right now to pair with a FreeSync monitor, the Fury X is it. Newegg is sweetening the deal this week with a $10 gift card.
