AMD Ryzen CPUs gets cheaper with 1-day only code at eBay

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: 2 days, 18 hours ago

In a limited time today-only coupon, eBay is running a "Back to School" promotional code that lets you take 20% off select hardware from select retailers. The caveat is that the coupon has a maximum redemption limit of $50 - which is to be expected when we're looking at CPU deals such as an AMD Ryzen 7 or other higher list price items. Having said that, you can now pick up Ryzen 7, 5, and even the latest Ryzen 3 CPUs for cheap until midnight tonight.




Of all the Ryzen deals below, the best one of the best deal is the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X at $151.99 after coupon. This is the only model listed below where pricing is cheaper than usual - whereas all the other Ryzen CPUs are at typical sales price - even after coupon code (so you're honestly only saving about 5% to 10% off, even though this is a coupon with an apparent big saving). Having said that, another noteworthy deal in this batch of computer hardware deal falls in the gaming monitor category.


The popular HP Omen 32 gaming monitor with QHD 1440p and AMD FreeSync is now only $259.99 after coupon. Compared to its typical sales price of around $280 to $300 - you're reaping good savings with this refurbished model, especially when compared to new models that are often priced over $500.

2K Games PC sale brings cheap Civ VI, XCOM 2, and more

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: 1 week, 3 days ago

Though Steam's sale has been over since July 5 the PC gaming Summer Sales are not over. Just this week Bundle Stars fired up a new one and their discounts on 2K Games are mostly better than the previous Steam Sale. Their headliner Civilization VI is the prime example.




A $35.99 purchase during the Steam Summer Sale, now in the Bundle Stars Summer sale you can get the price down to $32.39. Just be sure to apply a stacking 10% off coupon code at checkout for the best price online. It's the same case for the Civ 6 deluxe edition dropping to $43.19 at Bundle Stars while it was only $47.99 during the Steam Sale.


What was surprising to us, that even with a 10% off coupon, Bundle Stars does not have all the best 2K discounts. GamersGate also has a 2K sale, and while there is no stacking coupon, their raw instant savings often beat the Bundle Stars Summer Sale, like Mafia III dropping to $20 at GamersGate but only $24.30 after coupon at Bundle Stars. Below are the 2K Games at each sale listed at the lowest charging retailer.



Bundle Stars 2017 Summer Sale 2K Deals:


Use Code: SUMMER10



GamersGate 2K Games Sale:



The sale both end on August 13. GamersGate's goes through 6PM Eastern while Bundle Stars will go through the full day. The 10% off coupon at Bundle Stars will be valid through the entire Bundle Stars 2017 Summer Sale, ending on August 20.

$4 Wolfenstein and $12 Doom in 'last chance' PC sale

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Aug 3, 2017 8:23 pm

On July 5th the Steam PC gaming sell came to an abrupt end, but if you thought that was the end of cheap PC games this season you were wrong. For the last two week the UK-based retailer GMG has been running a 1,500+ title Summer Sale of their own and it's entering it's final "last chance" phase. As a last chance sale several of their best sellers have become even cheaper with 24 flash deals now stacking with a 20% off coupon. Many like Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood are at their best prices online.




Since July 21st, GMG has been running six "flash deals" at a time for 12 hours a pop. A total of 24 of the best flash deals have returned during the last 24 hours of GMG's sale. A have a 20% off coupon code combines with their instant savings cutting prices further. On top of that these flash deals will come with a free mystery game from GMG that arrives via email and a 10% off coupon code you can use on future purchases.


The sale runs through Friday, August 6 at 8AM Pacific. That's less than 24 hours from the time of writing, so you'll need to act fast. After that point the coupon will die and prices will return to normal levels. Below are the 24 flash deals and other top picks of the sale.


Update 8/4/17: The GMG Summer Sale has come to an end, but all the good PC gaming deals are not over. GamersGate has a Bethesda sale which shares many of the same titles at the GMG Summer sale with similar discounts. Wolfenstein: The New Order, for instance, was $4 in the GMG sale but is still decently discounted at $4.48 at GamersGate. Those best deals are listed below.

Any of the deals we've listed above are at great prices but there are general sweeping comments we can make. The best deals in our opinions are on Bethesda as Doom the Wolfenstein series, and Dishonored 2 are at or within pennies of their all-time historic lows. We should also note that if you're an EVE Online player, the GMG sale is one of those few occasions PLEX cash is on sale.

Cheap Ryzen CPUs and NVIDIA GPUs with eBay Flash Coupon

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Aug 1, 2017 6:01 pm

eBay is throwing out a limited time back-to-school themed coupon code that cuts 10% off select items at select retailers. While much of the sale is on fidget spinners and the usual junk you'd find on eBay, the coupon applies to some PC hardware that rarely gets discounts. The results are many discount Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 processors.




Beyond Ryzen, the code also works on select GPU's, SSD's, and Monitors. A rare drop under $200 is seen after coupon on the in-demand GTX 1060 video card. The coupon stacks with any instant savings and is only valid through today, August 1. Yup you read correctly, so if you're just about to buy any of those hardware today, this is a great deal. Otherwise, we'd suggest skimming the list to get a feel of the current street price on the various components below so you have a better idea of how much certain Ryzen CPUs and certain GeForce GPUs should cost during your next upgrade.

Ryzen 5 and 7 Desktop Processors

Even console video game hardware is going on sale. The PlayStation 4 Pro is at its best price of 2017 after coupon along and we're seeing a rare $40 off on the PSVR.

One day 10% off deal on PlayStation VR and PS4 Pro

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Aug 1, 2017 8:00 am

If you can make a $300+ purchasing decision within a day - then this may just be the PlayStation VR (or PS4 Pro) deal you've been looking for. Since Friday last week, eBay has been running a 10% off coupon code on select hardware from select retailers on their giant outlet platform. We've spotted a few interesting items including a PS4 Pro discounted down to $360 thanks to the aforementioned coupon - but just this week, Newegg has introduced the PlayStation VR into the mix of things.


We're counting two PlayStation VR deals as of writing, with a PS VR Core Headset on tap for $360, and a PlayStation VR Worlds Bundle for $450. The eBay 10% coupon will knock off $40 and $50, respectively, on both of these rarely discounted virtual reality headset from Sony.


PlayStation VR and Pro Deals


Use code: PCOLLEGE10 at checkout



Accompanying the two PS VR deals is Sony's higher performance PS4 Pro, which unlike the PS VR was never an "in-demand" unit given its wide availability since launch last year. Comparatively, supplies of PSVR was always questionable after its launch last year - with scalping prices going as high as $1,000.


So with that mindset, looking at its current discounted price shows you that being an early adopter can be quite an expensive proposition indeed.


All three PS4 related deals above will expire tonight at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. You'll need to use PayPal to check out for the coupon code to work - and while we don't expect the deal to be extended, occasionally "replacement" promotions do show up when other retailers see the action and want to join in on the fray. For example, just last week Walmart owned has the PS4 Pro on sale for a similar price. So it's not a far stretch to imagine a similar discount will occur for the PlayStation VR in the near future.


With Sony releasing what appears to be a strong Q1, it'll be interesting to see if they make a more aggressive price push on their now ubiquitous PlayStation 4 console as we near the holiday season.

Hardware deals: cheap Ryzen 5 and GeForce GPUs

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Jul 26, 2017 1:00 am

If your next build is Ryzen (particularly the Ryzen 5), this week is an excellent time to buy on the cheap. Just today released a $25 and $40 off coupons which stack with instant savings already available. The result is a myriad of PC hardware discounts on video cards and monitors, but most notable is the Ryzen 5 processor from AMD. Three of the four available Ryzen 5 desktop processors are at rock bottom prices - the 1500X, 1600, and 1600X.




The Ryzen 1500X, for instance, has fallen from the usual $190 to $164 after coupon - a historic low price. Compared to many retailers having the 1500X listed at $200.


In video cards, two really hot deals can be made with the Jet coupons. In a world where GTX 1080's have been inflated in price to the $700 - $1,000 level, Jet's coupon makes the MSI GTX 1080 Aero the best price online with a drop to $520 after coupon. Also notable in the GPU world are two Dell deals including a GTX 1070 for only $430 - most GTX 1070's are over $500 these days thanks to the crypto mining craze.


The best hardware deals of the week are listed below - which also includes an enticing 27-inch refurbish WQHD 1440p monitor from Monoprice at only $140. In need of SSD? Jet's coupon will also work on the 525GB and 1TB models of Crucial's MX300.


Ryzen 5 Deals





Video Card Deals



Intel CPUs









Most of the above deals are made with either coupon code ITSELECTRIC25 or coupon ITSELECTRIC40. The ITSELECTRIC25 code takes $25 off select electronics at Jet priced $150 or more; while the ITSELECTRIC40 takes $40 off electronics $250 or more. The codes both end after Sunday, July 30. Other hardware deals listed without a "Use code" next to the price do not require additional steps to get the discount and are available at other retailers across the web. Most deals will last through July 30th, but as always they may expire earlier.

Bethesda sale: $13 Doom, cheap ESO and more

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Jul 25, 2017 12:30 am

In the Summer months of 2017, it's good to be a PC gamer. The Steam Summer Sale was one of the best seasonal offers from Steam in years. while other follow up Summer Sales have kept prices low. This week Bethesda games are going even cheaper than before at GamersGate. Their new Big Bethesda Sale get the lowest prices ever on 2016's Doom, The Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind upgrade, Skyrim: Special Edition, Dishonored 2 and more.




The sale is aggressive in its discounts. While the Steam Summer Sale had Doom at $14.99, GamersGate this week has it for only $12.90. While Dishonored 2 was $19.99 in the Steam sale, GamersGate has it down to $16.16. Nearly all the games listed below are at or tying their historic low price points.


Top Pick Bethesda Sale



Full Sale Roundup



The sale is said to last through August 7, but we are suspicious. These deals at GamersGate are much better than in GMG's Summer Sale 2016 or Bundle Stars Bethesda Sale - two good but on nearly all front not as cheap as GamersGate. Either these deals, which began today, will run their course of 2 weeks time, or they are too aggressive and the publisher will tell GamersGate to calm the discount aggression down - as we have seen in the past on similar sales.


Either way, Bethesda games are ripe for the picking this Summer. We do not expect to see them this cheap again until the PC gaming Winter Sales.

Woot offers VR-ready GTX 1060 desktop for $699

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Jul 13, 2017 1:00 am

HP's Omen gaming PC lineup does not have the reputation of being cheap. Aside from holiday sales, they simply don't go on sale either and even when they do, you can only expect discounts of 10% or less. That's why it's so surprising to see an HP Omen desktop with a GTX 1060 video card pop up today for only $699.99 - one of the best gaming desktop deals of the Summer.




The deal is from Woot and is a July 12 only offer. There's a limited time and quantity, so you'll need to pounce on the offer fast to pick up the $699.99 HP Omen 870 desktop. It sports a GTX 1060 video card with last years Intel 6th gen Quad Core i5-6600 processor. Perfectly upgradeable for the future and gaming ready right out of the box at a bargain price.


HP Omen 870 Desktop Deals



HP Omen 15t Gaming Laptop Deals



The HP Omen 870 is an older model of the Omen Desktops now being replaced by the newer HP Omen 880 series. Another Omen 870 deal you'll find is directly from HP with the same GTX 1060 as the Woot deal but with a better Core i5-6600K processor (overclocking) now $850 after coupon. To pay that same $850 for the brand new HP Omen 880 base model desktop will only get you a weaker GTX 1050 video card. Unlike the HP Omen 870 deal from Woot, those sold at HP have more sticking power. They are not set to expire until Sunday, July 16 and could be extended (as HP often does).


Switching gears to HP Omen gaming laptops, the early 2017 Omen 15t is being replaced with a newer design. Not that old Omen was a hot brick, but the new model sports a better cooling fan and slicker looking design, but the prices and specs right now favor the old Omen by far. While the cheapest new Omen 15t laptop will set you back $1,000 and get you a Radeon RX 550 video card, while the older model is on sale at HP for $850 and sports a superior GTX 1050 video card.

Top six 4th of July gaming desktop deals (Roundup)

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Jul 4, 2017 5:10 pm

Whether Bitcoin is a thing to stay or not, the recent rise in mining crypto currency has driven the price of PC video cards sky high this Summer. While once you could find GTX 1060's for $200 and GTX 1070's for $300, you now see sold out, back ordered or inflated prices. GTX 1060 sell for $300 - $500 and a GTX 1070 anywhere from $460 - $800. It's to the point that building is less profitable that pre-built machines, especially now that the 4th of July sales have kicked in.




Lenovo, HP, and even GameStop have discounts worthy of this 4th of July with discounts often cheaper than what you could build for. Some you might even be able to strip the parts off and sell individually on eBay for a profit (prices are that crazy in some areas). Below we've round up the best Gaming desktop deals in each sale.


At Lenovo this year the best machine is undoubtedly the Y710 Cube. This is a gaming rig Lenovo is trying to rid themselves of since it's equipped with last years Intel 6th gen Core i processors. The $899 Y710 Cube with a Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and GTX 1060 is probably your best price-per-hardware-spec on the market today.


Lenovo Gaming Desktops


HP Gaming Desktops


GameStop Gaming Desktops


It's a similar story at HP. There you'll find Hewlett Packard trying to rid themselves of the old HP Omen 870 desktop with last year's 6th generation Intel processors. The result are new low prices on two configurations, the most notable the GTX 1060 for $799.99. That is one of the (if not the) cheapest gaming desktop with a GTX 1060 and an Intel processor on the market right now.


Going even cheaper with a GTX 1060 is GameStop and their sales on CyberPowerPC Game Master series desktops. Recent price drops at GameStop have driven their Ryzen 7 1700X machine with the coveted GTX 1070 down to $1,350, while it normally sells for $1,500. Much cheaper is the Ryzen 5 1400 / GTX 1060 config with a drop to $750 - one of the cheapest GTX 1060 PCs available.

PC deals on Fall FPS released COD WWII & Battlefront II

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Jul 1, 2017 6:30 pm

The E3 hype may have dissipated a bit since mid-June, but if you're a PC gamer still amped for some of the Fall 2017 releases in the first person shooter genre, there's a rare discount code at GMG slashing up to $14 off their MSRPs. At GMG get instant savings up to 10% plus a stacking 15% off voucher code this weekend make for some impressive pre-order prices for digital keys. The code only works on a few FPS titles like Call of Duty: WWII, but with discounts up to 24% off it's about as good as one can expect before their release date.




Most titles the code works on at GMG have 10% instant savings. To get that 10% discount you'll need to have an account at GMG (they call it a VIP price). Either login or create a new one from scratch and you're good to go. Then apply code FPS15E3 at checkout to get a grand total of 24% off. In the case of Wolfenstein II and Star Wars Battlefront II you'll save $14.10 off their $59.99 list prices.



Unfortunately Call of Duty: WWII does not have a stacking instant savings discount. In fact any discount on a digital copy of Call of Duty title prior to release is rare, but the 15% off voucher code does still slash $9 off the Standard Edition and $15 off the Deluxe.


The 15% discount code is only around for a limited time. It expires on July 6 at noon Eastern. Less than a week to pick up the savings on Fall releases.
