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

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.

There's a chance you're looking for a deal on something we didn't feature here. 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 and Das Keyboard's shop.

    Better values:

    1060 3 GB: $170 (w/rebate):

    [url<]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814137047&cm_re=GeForce_GTX_1060_3G_OCV1-_-14-137-047-_-Product[/url<] 1070: $370 (w/rebate): [url<]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125893[/url<] ..and I think these are the lowest I've yet seen for 1060 & 1070's. The 1060 in particular is a *very* good deal. ..of course Black Friday is coming up, but I'm not sure the 1060 will drop lower than this (..while the 1070 might). Just a guess though. On the "Red" team side: Fury X: $320 (w/rebate): [url<]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150742&cm_re=R9-FURY-4QFA-_-14-150-742-_-Product[/url<] -which might go well with: 32"IPS 4k with Freesync: $390 [url<]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4JH4R92713&cm_re=QNIX_UHD3216R-_-0JC-0009-00096-_-Product[/url<] [url<]http://www.overclock.net/t/1607952/qnix-uhd3216r-4k-matte-ahva-with-amd-free-sync[/url<]

    In Canada, Newegg has a Powercolor RX 480 4GB for 269.99, that’s probably the cheapest I’ve seen a RX 480 up here.

      i5-3570K-not worthy a mention?

        Sandy Bridge was a huge leap forward in performance. Everything since then has just been iterative.

      Applebred, one of my favorite cpu names of all time.

    [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151119<]Seasonic G 550 for $45 after MIR[/url<] is a pretty sweet deal.

    There’s the ever present sale on the CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W 80 PLUS BRONZE $19.99 ($39.99 plus $20 rebate card.) Not the best PSU but if you have a cheap system like a HTPC it isn’t the worst option.

    There is a trio of Rosewill mechanical keyboards for crazy cheap after MIR:
    [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823201063<]Rosewill Apollo RK-9100-RBR for $30 after MIR[/url<] MX Brown switches. [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823201084<]Rosewill RK-9000V2 BL for $25 after MIR[/url<] MX Black switches [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16823201085<]Rosewill RK-9000V2 RE for $30 after MIR[/url<] MX Red switches. I'm really interested in the RK-9100 RBR. Does anyone know if it's decent? Also, probably want to mention the American Express $25 off $200 that's advertised on neweggs homepage since it applies to a couple items on the DOTW list.

      I have the RK-9000 in Reds and have been pretty happy with it (V2 with the reinforced micro-USB port), but no idea if the RK-9100 is as solid.

      • highlandr

      Wow, that looks identical to a Monoprice KB I got a year or two ago. It has held up well – if this had been available (with Browns, mine has Reds) I would have jumped on it.

      I really like the USB ports, the adjustable backlighting (usually leave it off, I heard rumors the LEDs can burn out), and the fact I get a Fn key AND a “Right-mouse-button” key. I never use the right windows key but love the right mouse button.

    Do we know if evga has updated their shipping 1070s so they don’t catch on fire?

      • BoilerGamer
      • 3 years ago

      A. they don’t catch on fire, at worst the VRM would just overheat and quit

      B. One click flashable bios are available now [url<]http://www.evga.com/thermalmod/[/url<] and if you don't want to do that they you can advance RMA your 1070 once you buy them.

        • Voldenuit

        [url<]http://www.eteknix.com/evga-gtx-10701080-gpus-catching-fire-due-to-vrms-overheating/[/url<] As always, take everything you see on the internet with a little salt, but I'd rather they'd put thermal pads on (and yes, you can request they ship you pads to install) rather than a band-aid solution like flashing your BIOS to run your fans faster.

      Are EVGA sourcing parts from Samsung?

        • danielravennest
        • 3 years ago

        The GP-107 chips (1050 and 1050 Ti) are in fact made by Samsung. The rest of the 10 series are made by TMSC.

        Given that Samsung has made a device full of water – a washing machine – explode, you might want to stay away from anything they make:
