    $83 price for me. i almost bought one on impulse. kind of think my >10 year old cooler-master is under-powered and also crudding the bed.

    HiFiMan HE-560 V3 $300 + Free shipping Adorama

    I bought these on a similar deal from Adorama a couple months ago. First pair they sent me, the left ear was dead. Second pair, the right ear was dead. Third pair, the right ear was dead. I asked for a refund at that point. Which I should really really make sure indeed was credited to me. Each...

    Samsung 4K freesync 28" monitor 299 @ Costco - warm

    I got this bad boy refurb on Woot a long time back now for $300. I'd been planning on sticking with the ancient CFL 24" I'd been using, but it was too cheap to pass up. It's been such an amazing delight having this monitor.

    PowerColor RX 480 4GB for $164.99 w/ Free Shipping!

    Reminder that the VRM's are way under-spec, way worse than reference,

    DEAD: PowerColor RX470 160-20 = $140

    Still tempted, but remember the recent thread- . Apparently the PowerColor RX480 design is awful and the VRMs overheat like crazy. Wouldn't be surprised to see similar...

    New** Logitech - C922 Pro Stream Webcam $79.99 @ Best Buy - shipped.

    Newegg has the C930e for $82. It's 1080p. Wider field of view ("business" webcam, i.e. conference rooms) could be a downside depending on your application.

    New HP Omen 32" QHD Monitor - 2560x1440, 5ms, 75Hz freesync, LFC, VA panel = $343 shipped

    Almost bought this for gaming, since my Samsung's 4K is way past my computer's capabilities. 32" might also be fun for gaming. There don't seem to be VESA mounts though. My monitor arms might not be delighted about holding up a 32" but I think it'd work.

    Roku Streaming stick - $15 off - $35 @ Amazon

    this one- old one- is supposedly more than a bit pokey. new one is supposed to be as good as the set top box, butter smooth.

    PowerColor Devil 13 Dual 390 16 GB + Razer Ouroboros - $499 after 100 MIR @ Newegg

    Tempted to try & go relive the days of my 4870x2, which too cost me $500. But I'm super jazzed about the next GCN drop & want to play with Vulkan sooo not happening. Also, terrified of the power bill. ;) Cool card though.

    Sceptre 43" 4K TV $259 + Tax, FS or Pickup

    TV appears to just be launching today. Heh, cute. Stupid tempting. Thankfully, I don't think I have a spot for it.

    Intel 750 NVMe SSDs 400GB $300, 1.2TB $700 @ Newegg

    Keep in mind the 2.5" is a SFF-8639 aka U.2 aka SATA Express connector, not a traditional SATA connection. Unless you have a brand new server (edit: or some new desktops!) with 2.5" NVMe drive support, you'll need an adapter (such as one of these) to plug this in. Super tempted to pick this up...

    Sapphire Radeon R9 380 2 GB Compact OC Version for $139.99 AR

    Oh man, I have a compact HD 4850 in a data-center box for some cloud gaming and GPGPU that needs an upgrade. Little too much power consumption to fit, unless it's significantly lower than the 190 watts TDP on the full size. Tonga! GCN 1.2! HSA! Bah.

    Warm ? 850 Pro, 512GB @ Amazon $219.82

    Very tempting, especially with that 10yr warranty. 950 Pro's with their insane world hanging NVMe are still what I'm holding out for, even though I'll need either pcie<->m.2 adapter or a new system to use it. Only 5 years on the 950 Pro- maybe they don't trust their stacked VRAM + new controller...

    EVGA Supernova GS 1050W 80+ Gold - $89.99

    I have no idea what I'd use this for, but holy cow do I want it
