Deals of the week: graphics cards, SSDs, and speakers


— 11:07 AM on November 4, 2016

Greetings, Gerbils of the Round Table, and welcome to our humble gathering. Your sovereign has decreed that you should receive titles and lands, so rejoice! But before that happens, we want to discuss a number of amazing opportunities, hand-picked just for you. You can be the proud owner of any of these pieces of hardware, for low, low prices.

  • In good TR deals tradition, we're going to kick things off with an SSD deal. But there's no Reactor today, oh no. The Adata SU800 256GB SSD is on offer at Rakuten for a mere $54.99 if you pay with a VISA card. That's among the cheapest prices we've ever seen for an SSD that size.
     
  • The Radeon RX 480 is the talk of the neighborhood these days, and we happen to have a line on one. Newegg is selling Gigabyte's RX 480 8GB card for only $224.99, a particularly low price for such a card. We've been impressed with the quality of Gigabyte graphics cards of late, too.
     
  • If you want to go a little upmarket, there's something for you, too. The EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW (also known as the "pretty high clocks edition") is selling at Newegg for $419.99. That's a good price for a type of card that tends to go for $450 and over.
     
  • The Intel Core i3-6100 is one of our favorite CPUs of all time due to its affordability and combination of two Skylake cores and four threads with a clock speed of 3.7 GHz. This CPU is on offer at Newegg for $109.99 after promo code EMCFFEH23.
     
  • How about a massive chunk of spinning storage? The Toshiba X300 5TB HDD is selling at Newegg for $134.99 after promo code ESCFFET22. That works out to just 2.7 cents per gigabyte. Do you need a better reason than that?
     
  • All that hardware lying on the floor, sheesh. Need a case to go with that, buddy. The Corsair Obsidian 750D is a popular choice among enthusiasts, and it has room for everything and a couple kitchen sinks. The case received a TR Recommended award, too. Newegg is running a sale on it for $119.99 if you use promo code EMCFFET23.
     
  • In the recent edition of TR's Peripheral Staff Picks, we revamped our audio recommmendations section. One of our choices for a pair of desktop speakers is a set of Mackie CR3 studio monitors. Today we have deals on that set's bigger brothers. The Mackie CR4BT speaker set packs a 4" woofer and integrated Bluetooth connectivity support (look, ma, no wires!) Adorama is selling that set for $149.99, and there's a $30 mail-in rebate on tap to bring savings down further still. Meanwhile, the Mackie CR5BT studio monitors have a 5" woofer that should offer a sizable bass punch, and they can be yours for $199.99 at Adorama. There's an optional $50 mail-in rebate on top of that, too.
     
  • Last but not least, there's another deal on one of our peripheral picks. The Xbox Wireless Controller clad in white is selling for $46.99 at Newegg. That's a pretty sweet deal. Grab yours while stocks last.

That's it for today, dear gerbils. Don't forget to grab your complimentary cheese wheel on the way out, and let the world know of other deals you find in the comments section below.
