Thursday deals: a 32-GB kit of RAM at 3600 MT/s for $255 and more

Howdy, folks. It's pretty quiet around here because Jeff's working on a piece that you gerbils should find quite interesting. Remember the ever-so-mighty Core i7-5775C processor and its 128 MB of on-package eDRAM? That chip displayed some serious gaming chops back when we took a look at it, and it's become one of the gerbil army's favorite conversation pieces since then. We're taking a second look at it three years down the road and wondering if it's still as good a machine as it was made out to be. The answer may well surprise you. In the meantime, take a good look at the deals selection we have picked out.

  • Today we're leading with a hefty pack of nice RAM, for a change. The G.Skill Ripjaws V 32-GB dual-channel kit clocked at 3600 MT/s should be capacious enough for most any task, and it's currently selling for $254.99 at Newegg. That's one pretty good deal, seeing as memory this fast would set you back north of $300 just shortly ago.

  • How about a quality monitor that checks pretty much all the spec boxes? The Dell Alienware AW3418DW is a massive 34" IPS display with a resolution of 3440×1440 and a 4-ms response time. There's G-Sync variable refresh rate support, and the included stand has height, tilt, and swivel adjustments. Additional niceties include RGB LED lighting, a USB hub, and thin bezels on three sides. Take this massive grid of pixels home for just $849.99 from Newegg.

  • If you lust for a bigger-than-usual display but your wallet isn't that fat, check out the LG 29UB55-B. This 29" 2560×1080 display uses an IPS panel and has FreeSync support and a height-adjustable stand. At only $179.99 with the cart code EMCEPRU24 at Newegg, there's no reason not to get this over ye olde standard 24" or 25" monitor.

  • You may be eyeing a new high-end Coffee Lake build, and one of the best mobos for that purpose is the Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 7-OP. You get proper massive heatsinks to keep the VRM cool, metal jackets around the DIMM and main PCIe slots, USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, Intel-powered Gigabit Ethernet, and enough RGB LED lighting to get a rave party going. The "OP" in the model means you get a bundled 32-GB Intel Optane Memory module that can offer a boost to your machine's responsiveness. Newegg will sell you the entire package for just $209.99 with the cart code EMCEPRU39.

    Nice, a high-end motherboard with Optane. Now I can accelerate a Samsung 960EVO too ludicrous speed.

    That DeathAdder is a large but [i<]very[/i<] good rodent. I prefer to stay away from Synapse, though.

      I had a Death Adder 3G and it was–by far–the worst mouse I’ve ever used. It’s the only desktop mouse that I replaced before it failed mechanically. It was just that bad.

      I would never consider their mice again–especially if they stick to that design.

    that alienware screen carries a hefty premium. i think i’ll wait til next year and get a good 4k tv @ 120hz. Looking forward to see microLED panels out. i really dont want to use a desk anymore when large tv’s can do a decent job.

      A hefty premium compared to what model?

      There’s little/nothing out there with comparable specs at that price.
