Thursday deals: a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti for $359.99 and more

Mmmm, I love the smell of fresh graphics cards in the morning. Unless your accommodations reside underneath a boulder, you're probably aware that the Radeon RX 590 has been released. We took a long, hard look at the card, and it got a TR Recommended award. Its price could be just a hair more inviting, but there's always the chance that the winds of discounts will soothe that particular itch. In the meantime, Black Friday is coming up, and the deals are ever-flowing. Check out today's selection.

  • Although we just reviewed an AMD card, today's deal highlight comes from the green team. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti nips at the heels of the GTX 1080s out there, and it's got a 1721-MHz nominal boost clock in its OC mode. Since Pascal GPUs come with sophisticated boost algorithms, the actual speed is bound to be higher. You can grab this specimen for $379.99 from Newegg, and there's a rebate card that could get you $20 back, making the net total $359.99. That's a heck of a deal for this kind of graphics horsepower.

  • We figure that the Intel Core i5-9600K would make a fine companion for the graphics card above. This Coffee Lake chip has six cores that tick away at a rather impressive maximum of 4.6 GHz— just the ticket for high-refresh-rate gaming. Also, this processor is unlocked, meaning you can try and push it even further should thermals and power allow. The chip is selling over at Newegg for $249.99, a significant drop from the near-$300 launch prices we've been seeing it at.

  • A contemporary system these days is nothing without some good RAM, like the Geil Super Luce RGB 16-GB dual-channel set of 3000 MT/s DIMMs. These sticks come with rainbow lighting and boast support for Asus' Aura Sync color-coordination spec. The timings are set to 16-18-18-36, and the price is marked at a mere $104.99. You'd probably have paid over twice that amount for these sticks three months ago.

  • Need a decent, affordable solid-state drive for a budget build or an upgrade? The Adata SU650 480-GB SSD says hi. Despite lacking a DRAM cache, this drive is still more than up to the task of powering standard-issue machines and should be good for sequential reads up to 520 MB/s and writes up to 450 MB/s. You can pick one of these up for just $57.99 from Newegg with the cart code EMCEEEU46.

  • As we do so often, we saved the biggest piece for last. The LG 32UD59-B is an imposing 32" display with a resolution of 3840×2160. Although that kind of monitor isn't all that hard to find those days, the models you often see don't have 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space like this LG unit does. There's also support for screen splitting, a height-adjustable stand, and FreeSync support. All of this can be yours for a rather-silly $339.99 at Newegg with the cart code EMCEEEU38. Crazy, folks.

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

    Right now got all 4 cores on my i5-3570 rendering my own code at 3.8GHz with 90% CPU utilisation. Nuttiness Supreme. I’ll wake up in the morning and it’s all done.

    Six Intel cores at 4+GHz. $250!!! Hawt! Hawt! Hawt! But imma gonna wait for 7nm.

    Paid $170 for a used 1070 non-ti a few months ago with the 15% off ebay code. never bought a used video card before, but ngreedia forced my hand. my card came looking brand new in the original box. the seller did not have other cards to sell and promised that it was only used for gaming. so far, it’s been great.

    Remember when 580s were $390? I don’t miss the crypto craze.

      I remember seeing them go as high as $450 at the peak of the craze. 1080Tis were shooting into ~$1,500 land.

    Thanks for the tip on the i5. Purchased as the foundation of a 144hz BFV PC.

    that’s a terrific price for the 1070Ti!

    For those of you whose gaming card budgets don’t quite stretch that far; Fry’s Electronics has the Gigabyte 1050Ti (4GB, 128bit GDDR5) for $189; it’s a “1 day only” price, with free shipping.

      $189 for 1050ti is not cheap. there are numerous models on newegg for $150-170. in fact, you can find two 1060 3gb for $189 each or lower, after rebate.

        You can also get a Radeon RX 570 for less than that, and it is generally faster than a 1050 Ti (albeit at higher power usage). Right now Newegg has a [url=https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131736<]Powercolor 8 GB RX 570[/url<] for only $135 if you do mobile check & code; granted it is one of the oddball cryptocurrency models that only has a DVI port. For models with a more normal output setup, $150 gets you a 4 GB model, and $170 will get you an 8 GB RX 570, both from Asrock. $200 is enough to step up to an 8 GB Radeon RX 580 as well.

      I just bought two evga B-Stock 1050Ti SSC cards directly from eVGA on eBay for $98 each with free shipping. The deal is over now of course… Sorry.

        Just wanted to mention, I got my cards today and they look brand new. They have all of the protective plastic still on them and have zero signs of use. They don’t come with any accessories, disks or a fancy box, but for an unused card that retails now for (an insane) $200, $98 is pretty sweet. The warranty is shorter, but eh, these cards are quite reliable.

      Newegg has an EVGA GTX1050Ti on shell shocker right now for $130 after MIR

        I paid that in 2017. It’s crazy how that is now a great buy.
