Labor Day deals: a Radeon RX 570 4 GB for $185 and more

Many American gerbils are likely winding down in preparation for the long weekend here in the States, and what better way to celebrate Labor Day than spending some of your hard-earned cash on deeply discounted PC hardware? Here's what we found in our follow-up search to yesterday's best.

  • Folks who want a lot of gaming power for not a lot of cash could do far worse than Gigabyte's Radeon RX 570 4 GB card. This pixel-pusher's extra gig of memory sets it apart from the comparably-priced and similarly-adept GTX 1060 3 GB, but it's been impossible to find for anything approaching its $169 suggested price for months and months now. Wait no more, though, because this RX 570 is available for $184.99 with promo code EMCPXSE47 at Newegg.

  • Every dollar counts in budget system builds, and budget gaming rigs especially can make use of a spinning hard drive's generous capacity for the dollar. Western Digital's Blue 1-TB hard drive rarely goes on deep discount, but Newegg has this drive for just $39.99 with promo code EMCPXSE22. That's as little as this slice of spinning rust has ever sold for.

  • If you're looking for a speedier terabyte of storage, the M.2 version of Crucial's MX500 SATA SSD is going for $184.99, or just 18.5¢/gig, with promo code EMCPXSE23. The MX500 is among our go-to picks for SATA SSDs thanks to its solid performance and generally low price, and this deep discount just makes it that much more appealing.

  • Need a lot of fast DDR4 RAM? Prices for dense DDR4 kits haven't quite come back to earth yet, but Newegg will sell you a 32-GB set of G.Skill's Ripjaws V memory running at 3200 MT/s for just $280.99, no code required. This memory has 16-18-18-38 timings—not the tightest ever—but if you need capacity for cheap, that's the tradeoff you'll have to make for what is the cheapest 2-by-16-GB kit on Newegg right now.

  • Good and cheap are two words that rarely go together when one shops cases, but Thermaltake's Core V21 could be the exception to that rule. This microATX cube case has a side-panel window to show off your handiwork, plus fully-ventilated right and top panels with magnetic dust filters to keep it all clean. A single included 200-mm fan keeps components cool. This case can be yours for $59.99, but that's not the hook. A $25 mail-in rebate could take its price as low as $34.99 if you're willing to gamble.

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

    I’m building a rig for my parents out of my old spare parts and that case looks perfect.

      Your parents like side windows on their PC cases? I’m surprised. Do they also like blinking & color-cycling LEDs?

        • jihadjoe

        Sure they do! And RGB LEDs too!

        The case just arrived and your comment has inspired me to bling this thing right up lol

    Man. There was a Gigabyte RX580 8GB on newegg shell shocker a couple days ago for $170 after $30 MIR. Figured it doesn’t make deals post of its a one day sale.

      I posted about the one for $185 yesterday on the Deals of the day, too.

      While this is a good deal, a 580 is still better.

        A 580/1060 is about the bare minimum for me to play relatively modern AAA games.

        Any less than that and you might as well go all the way down to a Ryzen APU; it’s not worth spending $185 when you’re getting 40-60% of the performance if you’d spent $250.

    RX 570 for for $185!!! I remember back when that happened weekly, back when it was new…

      • PrincipalSkinner

      It’s a card that can make you happy twice.

      That’s a friggin’ awesome deal. I literally bought a MSI RX570 8GB for $240 less than two months ago… 🙁

      Still above MSRP unfortunately. The cryptomining boom of the past year really messed up prices.

      It should be expected for cards to be slightly higher than MSRP due to the RAM shortage… but RAM is beginning to come down in price too. So honestly, hoping for MSRP on a 1-to-2 year old card is… kinda bad… all else considered.

      Also note: the AMD 5xx series was a minor update to the 4xx series. Architecturally, its all Polaris. AMD barely made any updates to the 5xx series to begin with. So its really a 3+ year old design at this point (unlike NVidia’s Pascal, which actually was a new architecture in the 10xx series).

      NVidia’s Turing, the 20xx series, is just about to be released (at exorbitant prices), but the “next generation” of GPUs is coming out. With AMD’s Navi to soon come in 2019 (maybe Q2? Hard to say, really). So these cards should be lower in price.

      IMO, this generation of graphics has been awful from a pricing perspective.

      ————–

      Still, I see a Vega 56 at $399 now (MSRP), and all of NVidia’s 10xx series are at rock-bottom prices. So its nice to see deals on GPUs. So anyone itching to buy a GPU for the past 2 years finally has an opportunity.

      $185 is what I paid for my RX 470 way back in 2016 when it was launched. And the RX 570 is just a minor clock speed bump.

        • DPete27
        • 1 year ago

        And in early 2017 they were $130. Still kick myself for not buying a dozen and selling/mining them during the crypto craze.

          Yeah 3 months later and you could have more than doubled your money just selling to hungry miners. 😆

      • albundy

      i would only pay half that amount. not worth it now.
