While graphics card prices are still ridiculous (though coming down at least), there are plenty of deals to be had on other PC gaming hardware components and accessories. Today’s deals on Newegg present some great opportunities to upgrade your CPU to a 5600X or 5800X at a discounted price. If you want to push that performance to the max, you can also get a great deal on the MSI MAG Liquidcore 240mm cooler. If you’re thinking of a gaming monitor upgrade, you can also scoop a high-refresh 1440p gaming monitor from Gigabyte for cheap right now.
The six core Ryzen 5600X is one of the best gaming CPUs on the market today. It not only offers excellent performance in games, but also uses very little power, helping you to keep that monthly electric bill low. The 5600X is now down to the low price of just $290 on Newegg if you use the discount code at checkout.
Need even more performance? Perhaps you stream or like to run a lot of background apps while gaming. The eight core 5800X is now going for just $397 on Newegg, making it an excellent choice if you’d rather not worry about CPU bottlenecks anytime soon but don’t want to shell out for the $550 5900X. You may already have a motherboard that’s compatible these CPUs too since the Ryzen 5000 Series uses the same AM4 CPU socket that’s been around for years. If not, B550 and X570 motherboards are relatively affordable as well.
Chill it out
The summer heat is still pretty intense, so maybe you want to keep that CPU cool as well. 240mm liquid coolers can easily exceed $100 if not way more. Right now you can get the MSI MAG Coreliquid AIO CLC with full RGB for just $85 on Newegg. Using a cooler like this will help you keep your CPU clock speeds running higher and give your system an awesome facelift in the process. And if you’re installing a new CPU, you might as well address your cooling needs while you have everything out.
Perhaps you’ve already recently upgraded your hardware though or would rather skip the hassle of working on your PC components and just want a better visual experience. The 1440p resolution is growing rapidly in popularity among gamers, and with good reason. New graphics cards can easily handle this resolution, even at high framerates. 1440p offers a substantial boost in clarity over 1080p, and the prices of these gaming monitors have become far more cheap over the past couple years.
You can get a 27″ 144Hz 1440p gaming monitor from Gigabyte for just $260 USD on Newegg today. It includes Free-Sync, a 1ms response rate, entry-level HDR400 support, tilt control, HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 connectivity, and a 92% color gamut. It also comes with software features like blue light filters, a fast mode for combating ghosting, and more.
Some of these deals are only good for another 13 hours at the time of writing. If you want to pick up the 5600X or 5800X at these cheap prices, it appears you have a little more time though.
