Deals of the week: a huge display, mobos, RAM, and more

Top of the morning to ye, gerbils! The sky is blue, the temperature's just right, everyone's at the nearby beach… and I'm sitting here putting up with you lot. Hrmph. But no matter, I'm a professional, I have to rise above and provide gerbils with hardware deals. After careful sifting and searching, here's what we have for today.

  • I like big monitors and I cannot lie. The LG 34CB88-P display is a 34" curved monster with a 3440×1440 IPS panel and FreeSync support. The monitor also comes with a USB hub and a height and tilt-adjustable stand. Yours for only $549.99 at Newegg with promo code EMCXRJBB2.

     

  • All the talk these days may be about Threadrippers, but regular Ryzen processors still stand as excellent purchases. Here's a couple Ryzen-ready boards for your perusal. The Gigabyte GA-AX370 Gaming K5 packs pretty much everything that goes on a mobo: metal-reinforced PCIe and RAM slots, a caboodle of LEDs, a USB-C port, and a BCLK generator. Grab it from Newegg for $149.99 from Newegg with the code EMCRJBR28, and there's a $20 card on offer.

     

  • If that mobo is a little too dear, take a look at the MSI X370 Gaming Pro. This simpler offering still has metal PCIe slots, Type-A and Type-C USB ports, and Newegg will hand you one for $119.99 if you use the EMCRJBR46 promotional code, with another $20 dangling off a mail-in rebate.

     

  • What's that, "where are this week's hard drives?" Right here, sirs and madams. The HGST NAS 6TB hard drive is currently going for $179.99 at Newegg with the code EMCRJBR22. That's a square $30 per terabyte.

     

  • No need for that much capacity? The Toshiba N300 4TB spinner is selling for $119.99 at Newegg. Unsurprisingly, that's also $30 a terabyte. Talk about even figures.

     

  • I bet you're itching to pull the trigger on that Core X or Threadripper build, and you're looking at quad-channel RAM. Here's a G.Skill TridentZ 32GB kit with four 8GB DIMMs clocked at 3200 MT/s. Yours for $283.99 at Newegg.

     

  • If all you need is a dual-channel RAM, that's fine. Take a gander at the G.Skill Ripjaws V 32GB set with two 16GB DIMMs at 2400 MT/s. Newegg will sell you this affordable kit for only $224.99.

     

  • Newegg has a handful of individual deals going (as proven by our selection above), but this week the e-tailer has a multitude of promotional codes for several selections of items. They're as follows:

    You (NA) guys get crazy deals on hard drives. I really want a 4TB+ drive

      On the lower end of capacity, I just bought a 2 TB for $30 on eBay (incl. shipping). I mean, it’s manufacturer refurbished and an older model from Hitachi, but you can’t really complain about the price. Last year I got a 4 TB WD Blue for $100 (incl. shipping), not brand-new stock but pulled with like < 100 hours runtime and no issues. These days the larger Blues are 5400 rpm but I prefer that given that this is just for bulk storage and the lower noise and power draw are a plus.

    I found a weird deal:

    Newegg.ca has some g.skill ripjawsV ram, 3200mhz, 4×16 GB of it for only $599 CAD.

    I bought a set. They shipped it. Don’t know if it’s a pricing error but they honored it. I’m almost tempted to just get another set to fill out a threadripper system right away at this price…

    Edit: looked it up again. It’s up to $900 CAD now. Maybe it was a pricing error. I guess I got lucky.

      I think that you got lucky there. You basically got it at the 2133Mhz price:
      G.SKILL Aegis 16GB (16GBx1) DDR4 DRAM 2133MHz C15 (F4-2133C15S-16GIS)
      is $154, but it’s only is $149 at canadacomputers.com:

    That display is very tempting.

      If you can do without Freesync, this makes for a fabulous very-large display:

      [url<]https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA22F4F12274&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC-_-pla-_-LED+TV-_-9SIA22F4F12274&gclid=Cj0KCQjwq7XMBRCDARIsAKVI5QbFnt6Lti8dxaB_PtchISqUuBnWynhh5p5evIxOGsB3eB3Ksjzo68caAowEEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds[/url<] Cheaper because it's refurbished, but it gives you 50" at 3840x2160, 60Hz, 4:4:4. I have one and absolutely love it. It's like having four 25" 1080p displays in a grid with no bezels. When setup properly, image quality is fantastic.

        Refurbished only have 90 day warranty.

          True.

          How about this, then?

And bigger.

    The Ripjaws V 32GB set is only 2400 MT/s; not 3200 MT/s.

      Whoops, that’s too much copy-paste. Thanks.

    I think somewhere between the tsunami “effecting HDD production” and the DRAM market exploding… the word Deal has been redefined to mean “In stock and more expensive”.

      “Hammer hits nail on the head”…

      UPDATE!!! : if you plan on buying an evga PSU from evga directly, take their power meter test 1st! They ask you questions and size a PSU for your system… You don’t have to BUY the ones they recommend, but WILL give you a 10% DISCOUNT code for any PSU purchased on their site. [url<]https://www.evga.com/power-meter/[/url<] Also on some of those Newegg "deals" you can get a discount just as good or better by purchasing through their mobile app... so tell me again why I bother with their constant emails filling up my inbox? In addition, I find some EVGA equipment is WAY cheaper on the evga site versus newegg.com Example: I've been checking out 1000W PSUs for 6 PCIe cables which is actually the G2 version (120-G2-1000-XR) but is auto-notify at evga, but G3 version prices are: [url<]https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438096&cm_re=EVGA_SuperNOVA_1000-_-17-438-096-_-Product[/url<] $199 [url<]https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=220-G3-1000-X1[/url<] $169 Both are the EXACT same model EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G3, 220-G3-1000-X1 Newegg has a little "miner mark-up" problem going on... Some other power supplies & GTXs have the same issue, but you have to sign up for Auto-notify at the evga site, since some of them are not in stock... but it is still cheaper to wait a couple of days or a week and get it from evga. That being said I do like the deal on the LG 21:9 monitor that actually looks like a "good" deal.
