Thursday deals: a monitor two-pack, a GTX 1080 Ti, storage, and more

Man, those colors are just so pretty. Oh, I'm sorry, was stuck in a reverie gazing at the vivid shades of Corsair's ML120 Pro fans. Our editor-in-chief had a good look at these cool 'n' quiet Technicolor spinners today and came away impressed. If those fans got you itchin' for a hardware upgrade or a new build, we can hardly blame you. Perhaps the deals we dug up today will help you in that endeavor.

  • The leading deal today is an odd one, but by no means less appetizing than usual. Newegg is running a combo deal on a two-pack of Acer's XG270HU monitors. This TN gaming display has a 2560×1440 resolution, a 1-ms response time, and 144 Hz refresh rate with FreeSync support. That's just the ticket for high-refresh-rate gaming, and you can get two of them for $598.98 from Newegg with the promo code EMCXBBBG2. If you're wondering "why the heck would I want two of these," the answer is that you and a friend split the pack. You do have friends, right?

  • If you like to game on the green team's field instead, take a look at this here MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Sea Hawk X. This card comes with a closed-loop liquid cooler strapped to it, potentially offering better heat dissipation (and thus, Pascal clock-boosting ability) than common air-cooled offerings. Grab it from Newegg for $719.99 with the code EMCBBBG47.

  • A couple days ago we ran a deal on a Gigabyte Ryzen mobo, and now it's ASRock's turn. The ASRock AB350 Pro4 has two M.2 sockets, two PCIe x16 slots with CrossFire support, and a Type-C USB port. While this model isn't as frilly as the company's higher-end offerings, the price is quite sweet—only $74.99 at Newegg, and there's a $20 rebate card on offer that could bring that figure down to $54.99.

  • We got you wondering for a second if there wouldn't be hard drive deals, didn't we? The first HDD today is the Toshiba X300 5 TB. It has a 7200-RPM rotational speed, 128 MB of cache, and enough capacity for all those cheese pictures. Newegg will hand this drive to you in exchange for $119.99 if you enter the promotional code EMCBBBG22. That's $24 per terabyte.

  • If you're of the "more is better" persuasion, then perhaps you'd prefer the HGST NAS 10 TB jerrycan o' bits. This gigantic drive has a massive 256 MB cache and can offer some pretty insane speeds. You can get one at Newegg for $299.99 with the code EMCBBBG25—a figure that works out to $30 a terabyte, the lowest we've seen for a NAS-optimized drive of this capacity.

That's all for today, folks! There's a chance you're looking for something we haven't covered. 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 and Amazon, but we also work with Best Buy, Adorama, RakutenWalmart, and Sam's Club.

    No, the answer is that you buy a third one → to Eyefinity and beyond!

        Nope, I hate TN panels. But the next monitor I buy will come as part of a set of three.
