Deals of the week: a cheap Radeon R9 380X and IPS monitors
Greetings, gentlemen. There are few things that fit a man better than an exquisitely tailored suit, cufflinks, and a good graphics card and monitor. Seeing as some gentlemen may be, shall we say, lacking on some of these fronts, we hereby offer to help.
- Newegg has a XFX Radeon R9 380X graphics card for what is probably the lowest price we've yet seen: only $211.49 after promo code EMCEFHM22. And if that's not enough to sway you, the card comes with a code for Ashes of the Singularity and a $20 mail-in rebate offer. Check out how the 380X stacks up in our review.
- LG's 34UC87C is a 34" curved IPS display. It has a resolution of 3440x1440 and boasts 99% sRGB color coverage. Other bonus goodies include a USB hub and speakers. Grab it at Newegg for $809.99.
- Next up, we have the LG 31MU97Z-B. This is a pro-grade 4096x2160 monitor that's practically identical to the 31MU97-B we just recommended in our peripheral staff picks. It boasts a 10-bit IPS panel, 99.5% Adobe RGB coverage, and 97% DCI-P3 coverage. At $809.99 with promo code EMCEHFM29, it's a steal.
- The LG offensive continues with the LG 25UM56-P. This display is something of an odd duck, but bear with us. It's a 25" ultra-wide IPS screen with a 2560x1080 resolution. Newegg is offering it for $149.99. That's a pretty good price for an above-average workhorse monitor.
- The display party ends with the Samsung S24E370DL. Its PLS panel has a resolution of 1920x1080 and boasts FreeSync variable refresh rate support, albeit with a 60Hz maximum. The monitor's stand includes Qi wireless charging tech, so you can slap your compatible phone on it and top up its battery. Grab it at Newegg for $159.99 with promo code EMCEHGH67.
- On the storage front, Best Buy is offering the Intel 535 240GB SSD for $79.99. This model may not be the latest and greatest SSD, but if you're looking for a reliable drive, then look no further.
- Finally, there's a good deal on an Asus Z170-A motherboard. This board has USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C ports, an Intel I219V LAN controller, and an audio section with DTS Connect multi-channel encoding. Newegg is offering it for 139.99 after promo code EMCEHGH73.
Gentlemen should be more presentable after acquiring any of these items. If you find other exciting deals from this week's offerings, please post them in the comments section below.
