Introducing Thursday Hardware Deals

(opens in new tab)

We've been bringing you our Weekend Game Deals for a while, but we would be remiss to not also direct you toward bargains to help supe up the rig you play them on. That's why we're going to be wrangling together discount hardware from the four corners of the universe every Thursday for your guiltless purchasing pleasure. Come on in, and be prepared to leave with some awesome gear and cash to spare.
