An absolutely intense machine here, and while the discount isn't a deep as it was over Early Access, we have to admit we're in love with the Blade in general, whatever price. This one isn't our fave config, it's a little noisy and has the potential to throttle under heavy loads, but it's still a super speedy machine for a great price.

It may come in at the lower end of the gaming spectrum, but this is a dependable machine that's lighter than your average gaming laptop, and the CPU is still relevant today. Overall, it's a good price for a portable gaming machine with a current gen GPU.

Gigabyte Aero 16 YE4 | RTX 3080 | Intel Core i9 12900H | 16-inch | 4K | 60Hz | 32GB RAM | 2TB SSD | $2,999 (opens in new tab)

Hold me back. This one not only comes with more storage and RAM than any human could hope to use, it's packing one of the most beastly CPU/GPU combos out there. The 4K panel may be locked at 60Hz, but you can bet it'll be a crisp image, and great for anyone looking to do studio work.

Gigabyte Eagle Radeon RX 6650 XT | 8GB GDDR6 | 2,048 stream processors | 2,635MHz boost | $339.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte Eagle Radeon RX 6650 XT | 8GB GDDR6 | 2,048 stream processors | 2,635MHz boost | $339.99 $299.99 at Newegg (save $40) (opens in new tab)
This doesn't sound like such a crazy price from the Newegg listing, but trust us, it's one the best we've seen in, literally, years. The original version of this card launched for $379, competing with the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060. Today, the slightly faster RX 6650 XT version is less than the price of most RTX 3050s. Let that sink in for a moment. And it's a triple-fan cooler from a trusted manufacturer.

Viewsonic Omni | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 144Hz | $239.99 (opens in new tab)

Viewsonic Omni | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 144Hz | $239.99 $189.99 at Best Buy (save $50) (opens in new tab)

Hisense U7G Quantum Series| 65-inch | 4K | ULED | 120Hz | $899.99 (opens in new tab)

Hisense U7G Quantum Series| 65-inch | 4K | ULED | 120Hz | $899.99 $749.99 at Best Buy (save $150) (opens in new tab)
Hisense makes a surprisingly good (and quite large) gaming TV for under $1,000. It supports 120Hz, so you can put a high-end PC to work. The one catch is that there are only two HDMI 2.1 ports. We can't have it all, can we?

WD_BLACK SN850 with heatsink | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,000MB/s reads | 5,300MB/s writes | $279.99 $138 at Amazon (save $141) (opens in new tab)
This impressive SSD consistently gives the Samsung 980 Pro's performance a run for its money and is arguably the PCIe 4.0 drive to beat. It's our favorite high-speed SSD, and at this price makes a great upgrade for your gaming rig's boot drive. This version with the heatspreader is cheaper than the bare drive right now, too.

WD Black SN770 | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 5,150MB/s reads | 4,900MB/s writes | $129.99 (opens in new tab)

WD Black SN770 | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 5,150MB/s reads | 4,900MB/s writes | $129.99 $98.88 at Amazon (save $31.11) (opens in new tab)
It may not match the peak performance of the pricier SN850, but this is a great budget option. And a good shout for anyone still stuck on a PCIe 3.0 motherboard but with a yearning for an upgrade soonish. This SSD will be as fast as any PCIe 3.0 drive but then will reach its own top speeds as soon as you upgrade to a PCIe 4.0 board.

Razer Kiyo Pro (opens in new tab)

Logitech Stream Cam | 1080p |60fps |FOV 78 | 2.1 MP | $179.99 $96.99 at Amazon (save $83) (opens in new tab)

HyperX Solocast USB Microphone| Black| $59.99 $39.99 at Amazon (save $20) (opens in new tab)

Logitech G915 wireless | Clicky low-profile mechanical switches | Per-key RGB lighting | 30hr battery | $249.99 $159.99 at Amazon (save $90) (opens in new tab)
The G915 gets a lot of use on the PC Gamer team. (In fact, I'm typing out this very deal with it.)A long-lasting, great feeling and superbly stylish gaming laptop at a fantastic low price for the rest of the day. The G915 has lots of modern competitors, but few can get any close to it in value for money while it's on sale right now.

Razer DeathAdder V2 | Wired | 20,000 DPI | 8 buttons | Right-handed | 82g | $69.99 (opens in new tab)

Amazon Basics DisplayPort 1.4 cable | 6 feet | 4K@120Hz | $14.20 $10.49 at Amazon (save $3.71) (opens in new tab)
One of the bigger savings on Amazon's Basics range is on this 6-foot DisplayPort cable. This is rated to a bandwidth of 32.4Gbps, which is enough for 4K at high refresh rates, and even 8K. We can attest to the quality of the cable generally: It's super well built, and you don't have to fiddle with the usual DisplayPort clips like you would most others. The only thing to consider is the width of the cable itself. These cables are thick.

MSI GF65 (opens in new tab)

MSI GF65 Thin | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Intel Core i5 10500H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $909.99 $851.62 at Amazon (save $58.37) (opens in new tab)
It may come in at the lower end of the gaming spectrum, but this is a dependable machine that's lighter than your average gaming laptop, and the CPU is still relevant today. Overall, it's a good price for a portable gaming machine with a current gen GPU.

Gigabyte A7 K1 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 7 5800H | 17.3-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,299 (opens in new tab)

A current-gen GPU with ray tracing capability coupled with a sweet Ryzen CPU on a big 17-inch laptop; not bad for the price, though some more SSD space would've been nice.

Razer Blade 14 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 | Ryzen 9 5900HX | 15.6-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,799.99 (opens in new tab)

An absolutely intense machine here with a ridiculous saving. We're in love with the Blade in general, though this isn't our fave config; it's a little noisy and has the potential to throttle under heavy loads, but it's still a super speedy machine for a great price.

AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 300Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,399.99 (opens in new tab)

Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 | RTX 3080 | AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 300Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,399.99 $1,799.99 at Newegg (save $600) (opens in new tab)
An immense component combo here, one that's sure to smash anything you throw at it, especially at its native 1080p resolution. You may even be able to make the most of that speedy 300Hz refresh rate screen 

Gigabyte Aero 16 YE4 | RTX 3080 | Intel Core i9 12900H | 16-inch | 4K | 60Hz | 32GB RAM | 2TB SSD | $2,999 (opens in new tab)

AVGPC Hellfire | RTX 3060 Ti | Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD + 2TB HDD | $1,299 (opens in new tab)

AVGPC Hellfire | RTX 3060 Ti | Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD + 2TB HDD | $1,299 $1,199 at Amazon (save $100) (opens in new tab)
It may not be the most powerful CPU/GPU combo ever, but at that price, and with tons of storage space, this is a pretty nice entry-level gaming PC. It will be able to knock out good frames at 1440p if you make some concessions (use DLSS when available), and with dual channel RAM it'll be a good multitasker.

HP Omen 25L | RTX 3070 | Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD | $1,749.99 (opens in new tab)

HP Omen 25L | RTX 3070 | Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD | $1,749.99 $1,419.99 at HP (save $330) (opens in new tab)
HP has introduced a few different case sizes for its Omen line, but this 25L chassis is certainly big enough, and it's good-looking in white too. It's what's on the inside the counts of course, and the combo of an RTX 3070 and Alder Lake Core i7 12700 is simply beautiful for this much cash. The 512GB is a bit on the small side, but it is a WD Black, and you do get a 1TB hard drive, too. This is a great PC for 1440p, and will do the job at 4K.

Skytech Shiva | RTX 3080 | Ryzen 5 5600X | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,399.99 (opens in new tab)

Skytech Shiva | RTX 3080 | Ryzen 5 5600X | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,399.99 $1,699.99 at Amazon (save $700) (opens in new tab)
Knocking $700 off the price of this rig has made superbly tempting. It may not have the most current CPU but that RTX 3080, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB SSD makes it a gaming PC which will run happily out of the box without any issues. A little more RAM wouldn't have gone amiss for the price, but it'll still ace most games you throw at it.

iBuyPower Gaming RDY | RTX 3080 | Core i7 12700K | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,399 (opens in new tab)

iBuyPower Gaming RDY | RTX 3080 | Core i7 12700K | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,399 $1,899 at iBuyPower (save $500) (opens in new tab)
This RTX 3080-powered gaming rig can be on your desktop in two days. In a world where sometimes buying a new gaming PC would take months, that's a refreshing buying experience. The rest of the spec is solid, too, with a decent Alder Lake CPU and the 16GB RAM/1TB SSD you'd expect at minimum for a modern rig.

Amazon Prime Early Access graphics card deals

ASRock RX 6800 XT Phantom | 16GB GDDR6 | 4,608 shaders | 2,310MHz Boost | $639.99 (opens in new tab)

ASRock RX 6800 XT Phantom | 16GB GDDR6 | 4,608 shaders | 2,310MHz Boost | $639.99 $549.99 at Newegg (save $90) (opens in new tab)
When they first launched, the RTX 3080 and RX 6800 XT went head-to-head and could barely be separated. That means, so long as ray tracing isn't right at the top of your must-have list (it really shouldn't be) then opting for the cheaper AMD card is possibly the smarter choice.

Gigabyte RTX 3080 Gaming OC | 10GB GDDR6X | 8,704 Shaders | 1,800MHz Boost | $839.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte RTX 3080 Gaming OC | 10GB GDDR6X | 8,704 Shaders | 1,800MHz Boost | $839.99 $759.99 at Newegg (save $80) (opens in new tab)
This is the original take on the RTX 3080, which means you get 10GB of GDDR6X and 8,704 CUDA Cores—256 less than you get with the slightly newer 12GB version of the GPU. Importantly, you can max everything out with this card, even at 4K, and enjoy some serious high-end gaming. Make sure to use the code FTSBUAA696 at checkout the an extra $40 off.

Asus TUF RTX 3070 Ti | 8GB GDDR6X | 6,144 shaders | 1,815MHz Boost | $689.99 (opens in new tab)

Asus TUF RTX 3070 Ti | 8GB GDDR6X | 6,144 shaders | 1,815MHz Boost | $689.99 $659.99 at Newegg (save $30) (opens in new tab)
At this price, the RTX 3070 Ti starts to look like a much more tempting purchase. This is the full-fat GA104 GPU and comes with speedier memory than the standard RTX 3070. But it does trail the RX 6800 XT in terms of performance, so if the prices are close enough for you not to worry about the extra, the AMD card is the one to go for.

Gigabyte RTX 3070 Gaming OC | 8GB GDDR6 | 5,888 cores | 1,815MHz Boost | $599.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte RTX 3070 Gaming OC | 8GB GDDR6 | 5,888 cores | 1,815MHz Boost | $599.99 $539.99 at Newegg (save $60) (opens in new tab)
This is an Nvidia card getting closer to its MSRP in factory overclocked guise. That makes it a rather rare beast indeed and a great little GPU to boot. It's comfortably faster than the last-gen $1,200 card.

Gigabyte RTX 3070 Vision OC LHR | 8GB GDDR6 | 5,888 cores | 1,815MHz Boost | $729.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte RTX 3070 Vision OC LHR | 8GB GDDR6 | 5,888 cores | 1,815MHz Boost | $729.99 $549.99 at B&H Photo (save $180) (opens in new tab)
Of all of Nvidia's GPUs, it's the RTX 3070 that is often closest to the MSRP. To the point that there was a time when you could get an RTX 3070 for less than some RTX 3060 Ti cards. This snazzy-looking Gigabyte card is a case in point. You're looking at a triple-fan beast that can handle 1440p with ease; 4K is possible, too. 

Gigabyte RX 6700 XT Eagle | 12GB GDDR6 | 2,560 shaders | 2,581MHz Boost | $549.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte RX 6700 XT Eagle | 12GB GDDR6 | 2,560 shaders | 2,581MHz Boost | $549.99 $469.99 at Newegg (save $80) (opens in new tab)
This RX 6700 XT is $50 cheaper than the lowest cost RTX 3060 Ti we've found, and delivers the same rasterized gaming performance. Ray tracing, it's admittedly slower, but honestly, you're probably not going to want to turn RT on with the Nvidia card, either. This is a quality mid-range card, with a serious triple-fan cooler to boot. Don't forget to add the code: FTSBXAZ343 at checkout.

XFX RX 6700 XT Speedster Qick | 12GB GDDR6 | 2,560 shaders | 2,622MHz Boost | $549.99 (opens in new tab)

XFX RX 6700 XT Speedster Qick | 12GB GDDR6 | 2,560 shaders | 2,622MHz Boost | $549.99 $429.99 at B&H Photo (save $120) (opens in new tab)
The Radeon RX 6700 XT is a great mid-range offering that can take the fight to the RTX 3060 Ti and win, or be close enough as to not matter, excluding ray tracing at any rate. Given this tends to be cheaper than Nvidia's card, this is where the sensible money is. Not a huge saving here, but it all helps.

Gigabyte Eagle Radeon RX 6650 XT | 8GB GDDR6 | 2,048 stream processors | 2,635MHz boost | $339.99 (opens in new tab)

This doesn't sound like such a crazy price from the Newegg listing, but trust us, it's one the best we've seen in, literally, years. The original version of this card launched for $379, competing with the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060. Today, the slightly faster RX 6650 XT version is less than the price of most RTX 3050s. Let that sink in for a moment. And it's a triple-fan cooler from a trusted manufacturer.

The Radeon RX 6600 makes a lot more sense at this price point than it did at its peak. You'll enjoy smooth 1080p gaming with the settings cranked up pretty high, and the triple fan cooler will ensure the card runs cool and quiet, too.

Zotac RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge OC LHR | 8GB GDDR6 | 5,888 cores | 1,695MHz Boost | $529.99 (opens in new tab)

Zotac RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge OC LHR | 8GB GDDR6 | 5,888 cores | 1,695MHz Boost | $529.99 $453.82 at Amazon (save $76.17) (opens in new tab)
This RTX 3060 Ti is a solid deal. It'll perform better than a 2070 Super (which costs more), giving you good performance at 1440p, even with ray tracing on, particularly if you use DLSS. If you don't want to wait around for the full 40-series to launch, this card will get you through a few generations just fine.

Of course, you couldn't bag a 27-inch 1440p gaming monitor for less than $200, could you? Turns out, yes you can. This big-screen, high resolution, high refresh rate IPS screen is as cheap as it's ever been.

This is arguably the sweet spot for gaming monitors right now—it's rocking a high refresh rate, low response time, quality IPS panel, and a 1440p native resolution. And, at 27-inch, it's large enough to provide an immersive experience without taking over your desktop.

MSI Optix G272 | 27-inch | 1080p | IPS | 144Hz | $352.60 $155 at Walmart (save $197.60) (opens in new tab)
Normally, a $150 IPS monitor would be at best a 1080p 75Hz panel. But this is a proper gaming monitor, with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time on its IPS screen. It's also sporting a nicely restrained design, with a narrow bezel making it all but frameless on three sides. It's not the brightest, so don't expect any retina-searing visuals, but this is a fantastic budget gaming option.

24-inches might seem a bit small to some, but for a 1080p screen that does give you a really tight pixel pitch. Another good thing is that 180Hz refresh rate.

Hisense makes a surprisingly good (and quite large) gaming TV for under $1,000. It supports 120Hz, so you can put a high-end PC to work. The one catch is that there are only two HDMI 2.1 ports. We can't have it all, can we?

It's still got the G-Sync/FreeSync compatibility, low latency connections, and 120Hz refresh rate. And y'know, a bigger screen.

Make sure you add the code FTSBXAZ386 at the checkout.
