    Newegg High capacity 64gb (32x2) 3200mhz DDR4 on sale for $224.99. (Timings are 16-18-18 which are the best available so far at this capacity) Best price I've seen for these. Would allow you to store up to 256gb of DDR4 on a threadripper 8 dimm system, 128gb on a mainstream 4 dimm system, or...

    Seagate MACH.2 Multi Actuator [H]DD Interest?

    I was curious if any others were anticipating Seagate's MACH.2 launch? SSDs may be all the rage, but there's something [H]ard about all those moving parts. (Probably for the same reasons I get excited over old vacuum tube gear). It sounds as though they are pretty focused on releasing these...

    Optimizing Game Load Times

    I have historically been a major fan of large open world games and modding them to oblivion with large 2k-4k-8k texture files. As a result I have found load times to be the biggest thorn in my side when playing such games as Skyrim. I am currently toying with the idea of building a new system...

    RX 570 $120 + games (after $20 rebate)

    Newegg Rebates suck, but $120 for an RX 570 + 2 games is a value I scarcely think we shall see beat for quite some time.

    (Microcenter) 2400G $105 After Motherboard Bundle Discount

    The 2400G can be had for $105 when you bundle it with any compatible motherboard at microcenter. (Link) Pretty darn good price for a quad core with SMT considering you can also pick up some cheap B350/B450 motherboards to pair with it. (Or the option of trying cheaper open box motherboards)

    (Dead) Vega 64 + games $380 after rebate

    The MSI Air Boost Vega 64 is $379.99 after a $30 rebate. Newegg link. Not too shabby. Vega is rumored to have recently ceased production. So it is possible we might see lower prices than these as they try to clear the channel for newer product releases. Not too bad either way considering Vega...

    Vega 64 Liquid Cooled AIO $499

    Arguable value, but the AIO variant is now much more affordable than it used to be. Newegg Link w/ 3 free games Ballpark RTX 2070 performance (when you OC and opt to increase power limits on the Vega 64) If you are team AMD it would probably be wise to wait for 7nm. Still a neat card for...

    Active Noise Canceling Open Back Headphones?

    Newegg The deal here is the 3 bundled games The Division 2, Devil May Cry 5, and Resident Evil 2. If you need a cheaper Vega 64, I believe sapphire has a version on Newegg's ebay store for $400. I messaged Newegg on Ebay and they said their cards sold there will not come with the free games...

    32GB GDDR5 Radeon Pro Duo (Polaris x2) $449 Newegg

    Newegg (also on their ebay store) This is essentially 2 RX580 GPUs with 16gb of VRAM each for a whopping 32gb combined. Probably not great for gaming as I've heard OC utilities do not work with it (gaming drivers do work for it though) Also, you can currently get a Vega 64 card for $455 so...

    2200G not up to snuff for Planet Coaster?
