If the current situation has you stuck at home and looking for something fun to do, don’t despair. Now is the perfect time to hook up a full-scale gaming PC and get lost in digital worlds. “Wait,” you may be thinking, “there’s no way I can afford that!”
However, when you shop the right deals, you can easily afford even the best PC parts. The Newegg sale, which started today, is a great way to pick up gaming PC parts on the cheap. Here’s what you need to know.
This top-of-the-line processor would normally run you a solid $330, which makes sense; it’s an incredible piece of hardware. However, right now you can snag this cutting-edge processor for a steal at $260, saving you a full $70. Beyond that, this deal over at Newegg will net you a free pre-order for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, the upcoming entry in the long-running series.
If you’re in the market for a full, pre-built gaming PC, this sale has you covered. Right now, you could pick up an Asus ROG Strix for $200 off, making it only $800. This excellent gaming rig is normally $1,000, so you’re saving enough to pick up tons of ramen to munch down while you game!
What’s in the box, you ask? This gaming PC comes pre-loaded with a 512GB solid-state drive, 8GB of RAM and a Ryzen 5 processor. What’s more, it’s also sporting a GTX 1650 graphics card. For the uninformed, that’s a lot of goodies for $800, and you don’t have to worry about putting it all together yourself.
You’re going to want a good monitor to go with any gaming computer you buy or build. One of the best deals on a 27-inch display you can find is over at the Newegg sale. The Acer GF276 is normally $200, but is on sale for $150 right now. That’s probably the best price you’re going to see on this model for quite some time.
Don’t forget, any good gaming PC needs a good gaming keyboard to bring out the best in the pilot. Razer’s stellar Cynosa Chroma keyboard is one such peripheral, with anti-ghosting technology to help your keystrokes stay precise. Normally, this serious piece of hardware would run you $120, but it’s on sale right now for $75. That’s a hard deal to beat!
