Newegg is having a big sale today and tomorrow, obviously coinciding with Amazon Prime Day. And while only a minuscule fraction of the 50,000-plus things on sale over at Amazon are relevant to PC gamers, Newegg's inventory has a good bit of solid deals. 

The full "Fantastech" sale starts at 12:00 PDT, but pre-sale deals are already starting to unlock, and we'll be updating this post throughout the day as more deals come online. Here are all the Fantastech deals, and here's the best stuff we've found so far:

Intel Core i7-8700K and ASUS Prime Z370-A LGA motherboard | $424.98
Grab the ASUS Prime Z370-A LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z370 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX motherboard, alongside an Intel Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake 6-Core 3.7 GHz (4.7 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series) 95W processor.
