Hello, gerbils! I have a request for you today. I'm going to have a horizontal "wisdom" tooth (yes, really) pulled today, so I'll have an hour of two of horrible suffering followed by a few days of pain and eating mostly Queal. So if you have any best wishes, prayers, or positive thoughts, send them my way. On a happier note, here's today's collection of hardware deals. We have a wide selection, so get your credit cards out.
- It might be the season for eggnog, but a good number of gerbils are looking forward to Coffee Lake instead. The Z370 Aorus Gaming WiFi is as nice a home as any for an eighth-gen Core CPU. It comes with USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports in Type-A and Type-C flavors, two M.2 sockets, Intel-powered Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a Creative Sound Core 3D chip for good measure. Grab one of these for a low $129.99 from Newegg. As if that price wasn't good enough, there's a $30 rebate card on tap, too.
- Here's something out of left field. The Viotek GN34C is an enormous 34" ultra-wide VA curved display with a resolution of 3440×1440 and a 100 Hz refresh rate. Those are eyebrow-raising specs on their own, but there's FreeSync support on tap, too. A display with these features and size would normally cost a pretty penny, but you can get this one for just $529.99 from Newegg.
- An affordable SSD is a breath of fresh air these days. Today we have such an item, the Adata SU800 256 GB solid-state drive. It's a solid offering with 560 MB/s read and 520 MB/s write speeds, and it can be yours for only $70.99 at Newegg with the promo code EMCSBCBE4.
- If you prefer your storage big and spinny, take a look at the Toshiba X300 5 TB hard drive. This model has a 7200-RPM speed, 128 MB of cache, and Newegg will hand it to you in exchange for only $119.99 if you use the promo code EMCBCBE23. We really do think you should be preparing some storage for all those inevitable Christmas videos.
- Graphics card prices have also been riding high of late, so it's good to see a deal like the EVGA GTX 1060 6 GB ACX 2.0. This card is petite, powerful, and pretty affordable at $249.99. That price is decent in itself, but there's a $20 rebate card available that can bring the cost down to $229.99.
- Finally, something to put all that hardware in: the Cooler Master MasterBox 5 case in black-and-white finish. This enclosure received a TR Editor's Choice award back when we reviewed it, and you can get one for only $49.99 with the promo code EMCBCBE35. If you then fill out a rebate card, you can get another $10 off. That's insane value right there.
