Ready for modern games with 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM, this Radeon RX 6700 XT variant from ASRock is on sale for Cyber Monday at Newegg after taking advantage of a $20 discount. The Challenger D model is encased in a sturdy metal frame with a sturdy backplate to prevent damage to your motherboard and features dual fans that keep the GPU cool under load with high-quality thermal pads. When the card is idle, the fans even stop for a completely silent, power-saving mode.
This 6700 XT supports desktop resolutions up to 8K and comfortably plays modern games at 1080p – 1440p for a bargain price. Features like AMD FidelityFX and Variable Rate Shading (VRS) improve the final image anyway, so upscaling will make your gameplay look even better! —Ben Wilson
WD Black SN850X is currently discounted by a significant $60 from its usual asking price. This m.2 SSD is a great option for upgrading any compatible system and is available in a number of storage formats from the Cyber Monday Amazon link above.
You’ll notice a significant increase in file transfer speeds, operating system load times, and game load times thanks to this m.2’s 7,300MB/s sequential read capability. Check if your motherboard supports PCIe one-notch slots if you’re still using a mechanical HDD (why?!), then grab one of these bad guys. In addition, a heatsink is integrated into this particular “X” model to aid in heat dissipation and prevent throttling during peak transfer periods. Additionally, this SSD features Western Digital’s “Game Mode 2.0” firmware, which attempts to anticipate when game content should be queued on-demand to speed up load times and reduce texture pops. —Jez Corden
Cyber Monday is a great time to pick up some upgrades for an existing system, but what if you want to build one from scratch? We’ve got some good news: thanks to a host of excellent deals, you can get all the components you need to build a high-performance 1440p gaming rig for just $760 – and there’s room for additional storage if you decide you want to something to add.
We’ll dig deeper into why we’re recommending the specific discounts we’ve listed above, but the bottom line is that by taking advantage of these deals you can enjoy a stable 1440p gaming experience around 60 hours. FPS on high settings in the vast majority of games on the market. Notably, there’s enough PSU space that you could opt for a great deal on a graphics card on an RTX 3070 or a Radeon RX 6700 XT over a regular Radeon RX 6700, although you’d have to pay a little more.
In the end, such a rig would typically cost at least $1,000+, so the fact that you can build one for just $760 thanks to Cyber Monday is fantastic. If you’ve been hoping to put together a capable gaming PC but haven’t been able to justify it due to the high prices, now’s the time to pull the trigger. — Brendan Lowry, Windows Central Contributor
If you need a second screen but don’t have room for a full-size monitor, you can get up to 43% off these portable 15.6-inch panels from Lepow on Amazon. Ideal for installation next to a laptop or even connecting to an Xbox when traveling, thanks to the built-in speakers and ultra-thin design, with both Z1 models including an attached screen protector.
Each model comes with HDMI and USB cables to connect compatible phones, tablets and more to a bigger screen. Perfect for presentations or any other situation where you need quick access to a spare monitor. These IPS panels display a 1920 x 1080 resolution image, which is about perfect size considering their skinny width and lightweight build. — Ben Wilson
Several configurations of Intel desktop CPU are currently available with different retail prices for Cyber Monday, with the Core i5 10600K offering the biggest savings at 43% off.
If you’re building a new desktop PC or just looking to upgrade an existing one, there should be something for everyone given the varied nature of these chips. The two 12th Gen CPUs offer the best value for money from this list, I’d say, although the 10th Gen i5 at 43% off is also hard to ignore.
The Core i7 12700KF desktop CPU is a real beast here, but the Core i5 12th Gen is really great too, even outpacing the Core i9, albeit at a slightly higher wattage cost. In general, I’d skip the Core i9 10th Gen offered here and go with the Core i5 or Core i7 12th Gen instead, but the Core i5 is a great option for a budget machine. —Jez Corden
This excellent curved monitor from MSI has a truly massive $200 savings for Cyber Monday. This 1000R curved screen is designed to immerse you in your field of view for a more cinematic experience, complete with 165Hz refresh rates at 1ms. This monitor is 2560 x 1440 for an FHD+ experience, complete with a maximum brightness of 400 nits.
MSI has also built a number of proprietary features into this monitor, including the “Night Vision” filter that enhances models in dark shadows to give you the edge in competitive multiplayer, while also incorporating AMD’s FreeSync Premium technology and anti-flicker, with anti-blue light modes. This is one of the best premium monitor deals we’ve seen to date and worth considering. —Jez Corden
For a state-of-the-art computer version, you’ll probably need to juice up some power-guzzling components. This 1200W Super Flower Leadex power supply is fully modular to save on trailing cables and connect only what you need.
It’s a fantastic option to avoid cramming a handful of unused cables under a shroud in your PC case, and it delivers enough power to handle the recommended specs on a modern graphics card like the NVIDIA RTX 4080. With a massive savings of $160.00, it’s the perfect PSU for enthusiast builds with 45% off Newegg.
The 140mm fan runs completely silently with an eco mode switch, and the 80+ Platinum rating further helps minimize wasted energy. It won’t fit in a small form factor case, but neither will a giant GPU, so it’s better suited for a standard desktop tower. — Ben Wilson
