Greetings, fair gerbils. Roughly every three-to-six months, I go and get my back and shoulders put into place again. Life at a desk takes it toll, and being naturally tense doesn't help (factory defect, I'm sure). The sweet release of wound-up muscles and actually being able to enjoy the full range of my arms and neck's motion are as good a panacea for stress as any, and it's something I heartily recommend to anyone who regularly spends hours sitting down. But enough talk for now, you're here for the finest PC hardware deals around. Here are today's picks.
- We don't usually lead our deals posts with power supplies, but we have a good one today. The Corsair RM650x is a member of what's one of the finer families of PSUs around. You get fully modular cabling, a nice-and-big 140-mm fan that'll only spin up if needed, stable power delivery, and a ten-year warranty. I've been running the 750-W version in my main rig for a while now and I couldn't be happier. Grab the RM650x for Newegg for $79.99 with the cart code EMCEREE34. You get a rebate card you can use to get $20 back, too.
- Next up, a couple displays with unique tasks. The first one is the LG 27UD58P-B, a familiar sight in our deals posts. After all, it's a 3840x2160 IPS monitor with a 1000:1 contrast ratio and FreeSync support. The included stand offers height and tilt adjustments, and the price tag reads a mere $249.99 at Newegg if you apply the cart code EMCEREE65.
- The second monitor on hand is the Acer ED273. This 27" curved monitor has a resolution of 1920x1080. You may be thinking that's on the low side, but the panel is a VA unit with a 144-Hz refresh rate, FreeSync support, and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. That particular combination makes thie ED273 a fantastic choice for straight-up gaming. The super-low price of just $199.99 at Newegg with the application of the cart code EMCEREE39 pretty much seals the deal.
- Do you have a penchant for gaming on a plane? Join the mile-high frag club with this Dell G5 gaming laptop right here. This 15.6" machine has a 1920x1080 display that gets its pixel orders from a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4-GB graphic card. An Intel Core i7-8750H processor commands the entire operation, coupled with 8 GB of RAM. Storage duties are taken care of by a combo setup with a 128-GB solid-state drive and a 1-TB spinner. Take this laptop home for $999 from Walmart.
- Peripherals are up next. The first one is the Razer Deathadder Elite mouse with a 16,000-DPI sensor and just the right amount of buttons. There's not a shiny surface in sight, and the rodent's shape is familiar and comfortable. At just $39.99 at Amazon, we think this mouse is quite the steal.
- The final bit today is actually six bits—the number of speakers in the Logitech Z506 5.1 set. Simple as it may be, this 75-W RMS kit should be more than powerful enough for clear-sounding bedroom gaming . The handy control pod has a headphone jack, and the asking price is just $49.99 at Walmart.
