Thursday deals: a Ryzen 7 1700 for $220, a big-monitor party, and more


A fair day to you, gerbils. At least I hope that yours is fair, as around here it's been gray and rainy for nearly 3 months straight, save for a day of respite here and there. I was told I live in a temperate country, and now I'm seriously doubting that assertion. I don't know if Portugal snapped away from Europe and drifted off next to the UK, the home of all depressing weather. I shall have to be content with the sight of cheap hardware. Look what we found today.

  • This deal just landed in our inboxes, and it's rather insane. The eight-core, sixteen-thread Ryzen 7 1700 CPU is one of the healthier specimens in its family. It has a 3.7 GHz turbo frequency and comes packaged with AMD's fancy Wraith Spire LED cooler. As it happens, Newegg's running a level-9000 deal on this processor and is selling it for just $219.99 if you use the promo code NEN428. We seriously advise you to get it in your cart ASAP as stocks will be vanishing quickly.

  • The big-ticket items today are also physically the largest. We're kicking things off with the Dell Ultrasharp U3818DW. This humongous curved ultra-wide monitor is 38" across. Its IPS panel has a resolution of 3840x1600 and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. The display's maximum brightness is 350 cd/m2 and its response time is 5 ms in fast mode. Additional niceties include a USB hub with Type-C and Type-A ports and a tilt- and swivel-adjustable stand. This monitor usually sells for a pretty penny, but today you can get it from Newegg for $899.99 if you use the promo code EMCPTPV37.

  • If you prefer a smaller (but still huge) display with a high refresh rate, then you'll want to take a good look at the Viotek GN32LD. This 32" curved display has a 2560x1440 VA panel with a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz with FreeSync support. Viotek says the contrast ratio is a quite-healthy 3000:1. This monitor ticks all the right boxes in our book, and it's only $489.99 at Newegg Flash while stocks last.

  • Gaming in 4K resolution is quite a pleasant experience, and made better by a vivid display like the Samsung U28H750. This 28" quantum-dot-infused monitor has a resolution of 3840x2160 and a 1-ms response time. Despite the usage of a TN panel, the fancy backlight apparently gives it the ability to display 10-bit color. The refresh rate is the standard 60 Hz, but there's FreeSync support on tap. Get a hold of this display for $399.99 from Newegg.

  • Moving over to the SSD department, today we have the Adata SU800 512 GB drive on sale. This SATA drive can reach pretty-high 560 MB/s read and 520 MB/s write speeds, and it's selling over at Rakuten for only $101.99 if you use the promo code AD18 on the second step of checkout. Considering that fast SATA drives usually hover around the $130 mark, that's a sweet deal right there.

  • Finally, two nice enclosures. The first is the Phanteks Enthoo Pro TG case with integrated RGB LED lighting and a tempered-glass side panel. This chassis has room for radiators aplenty, support for extra-long graphics cards and power supplies, and room for two 2.5" devices and six 3.5" hard drives. You can get it for just $99.99 from Newegg, and there's a $10 rebate card available.

  • If you'd rather have a more affordable case that's still of quality manufacture, do look at the Phanteks Eclipse P400. This case proudly exhibits a tempered-glass side panel and integrated RGB LED lighting. There's a full-length PSU shroud and room for radiators up to 360-mm size at the front. The Eclipse 400 is going for a mere $54.99 at Newegg with the code EMCPTPV24. As if that wasn't enough, there's a $15 rebate card on offer. That's a heck of a deal.
