Thursday deals: a Ryzen 7 1700 for $200 and more

Greetings, folks! I hope you're enjoying the summer weather. Around here it's warm and balmy enough, and there haven't been reports of massive fires—at least so far. My European brethren in Sweden and Greece can't say the same, unfortunately. Best wishes for them. In the meantime, the PC hardware world hasn't stopped moving. Here are today's best deals.

  • AMD's Ryzen 2000-series processors may be all the rage right now, but it's not like the previous-gen chips suddenly stopped working. Today's entrant is the Ryzen 7 1700 eight-core, sixteen-thread CPU with a 3.7 GHz single-core turbo clock and an included AMD Wraith Spire cooler. Newegg will get you one in exchange for just $199.99 with the promo code EMCPWRV38.

  • The CPU above could do with a nice abode like the MSI X470 Gaming Pro motherboard. This simple-but-effective mobo offers USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, a steel-clad main PCIe slot, and onboard RGB LED lighting. Grab it from Newegg for $129.99 with the promo code EMCPWRV47. There's a $20 mail-in-rebate available, too.

  • Sing along with me: RAM prices are falling down, falling down… The Corsair Vengeance RGB 16-GB kit clocked at 3000 MT/s is stylish, quick, and will set you back only $154.99 at Newegg with the code EMCPWRV29. You get both performance and style for an affordable price.

  • While NVMe SSDs are interesting, not everyone needs their massive speed. Most folks do just fine with a SATA SSD, but then them cables are just so annoying. Enter the Western Digital Blue 500-GB M.2 SATA SSD. This drive should push up to 560 MB/s in sequential reads and 530 MB/s in writes, and comes with a five-year warranty. Yours for only $94.99 from Newegg with the code EMCPWRV33.

  • We saved the biggest piece for last. The Acer ET322QK is a massive 32″ monitor with a resolution of 3840×2160. It uses a VA panel with maximum brightness of 300 cd/m² and a 4-ms response time. Support for FreeSync, built-in speakers, and a rather stylish stand are all part of the package, too. Take this slab o' pixels home for just $349.99 from Newegg.

That's all for today, folks! There's a chance you're looking for something we haven't covered.

    8 cores and 16 threads for $200. What a time to be alive!

    This Acer Spin 2-in-1 with a Core i3-8130U, 8GB of memory, 256GB SSD, and 1080p IPS display shouldn’t be a good buy at $499.99 (this should really be the going rate) but it seems to be one in today’s RAM-hungry world:

    [url<][/url<] I'd made a thread about getting a decent upscale Chromebook for my wife but this looks like such a good deal I'm thinking about snapping it up instead. My local store has a few in stock.

      That does seem to be pretty decent. Seems like a lot of hardware for the price.
