Alienware Aurora R14 AMD Ryzen 7 5800 RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for Only $1058.39
Right now Dell is offering an Alienware Aurora R13 gaming PC equipped with an Intel Core i7-12700F CPU and GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU for only $1146.59 after $500 in instant savings and stackable coupon codes “GAMING10” and “ARMMPPS“. This is the best price right now for an RTX 3060 Ti gaming PC from Alienware or Dell. In fact, it’s even cheaper than the best Dell XPS RTX 3060 Ti configs even though the Alienware R14 has better components. The RTX 3060 Ti is a pretty significant step up from the 3060.
Lenovo Legion 5i RTX 3060 Gaming PC for $999.99
Best Buy is offering this Lenovo Legion Tower 5i equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor and RTX 3060 video card for a great price of $999.99. This is a great deal for a gaming PC from a reputable brand that uses non-proprietary components (so it’s easy to upgrade) and good specs right out of the box. The low price tag might imply that the RTX 3060 is not up to snuff, but nothing could be further from the truth. The RTX 3060 is about 20% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER and is on par with the RTX 2070, but with the advantage of better DLSS and Ray Tracing compatibility. That means it handles 1080p gaming beautifully and has the chops to take on 1440p and VR gaming as well.
65″ Hisense U8H 4K QLED ULED Mini LED TV for $898
HDMI 2.1 for 4K @ 120Hz
The U8H was Hisense’s highest end LED LCD TV for 2022. The biggest upgrade from the 2021 U8G model is the Mini-LED panel, which allows for better control of black levels and thus a higher contrast ratio. The UH8 also features quantum dot technology (QLED), which offers higher brightness levels (up to 1,500 nits) and better color reproduction. The UH8 is a ULED TV, meaning it’s equipped with full-array LED backlighting with local dimming and supports wide color gamut. The U8H has gamers covered. It has a native 120Hz panel and two HDMI 2.1 inputs. That means it can pass true 4K @ 120Hz on PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles and RTX 30 series equipped gaming PCs. The U8H also supports VRR and ALLM.
Xbox Series S for $239.99
At this price, the Xbox Series S is less than half the cost of an Xbox Series X. It doesn’t have quite the power of the Series X, so games are displayed at 1440p resolution instead of 4K in order to maintain the consistent 60fps-120fps in most games. The “holiday” console is exactly the same as the regular console, but with different packaging.
1 Month Free Trial to Paramount Plus
For a limited time, Paramount is offering new and returning subscribers a one month free trial to the Paramount Plus streaming service (instead of the normal 7-day trial) when you enter code: “ATMIDNIGHT“. You can choose either the Essential or Premium plan for your trial. You’ll be able to watch the new Teen Wolf: The Movie and Top Gun: Maverick as well as other Paramount Plus exclusives like Star Trek: Strange New Worlds or South Park: The Streaming Wars.
34″ Dell S3422DWG Gaming Monitor for $399.99
The Dell S3422WG gaming monitor sports a 34″ 3440×1440 21:9 resolution with an aggressive 1800R curved panel. The 1440p resolution strikes an excellent balance between image quality and performance; the pixel density is good enough that your games will look sharp and detailed at the native resolution, but it also won’t tax your system nearly as heavily as a true 4K display. The Dell S3422DWG utilizes a VA panel, which boasts a 1ms response time, 144Hz refresh rate, 3000:1 contrast ratio, and 90% DCI-P3 color coverage. It’s not officially G-SYNC compatible, although we have personally tested it and G-SYNC does indeed run fine on this monitor.
65″ Vizio 4K OLED Smart TV for $998
I believe this is the least expensive 65″ OLED TV we’ve seen so far with 4K @ 120Hz support and HDMI 2.1 inputs. Vizio OLED TVs aren’t as popular as LG OLED TVs but this is still a true OLED TV with unbeatable black levels and contrast ratios for stunning HDR picture quality. It also makes a good gaming TV because it supports 4K @ 120Hz over HDMI 2.1 and boasts extremely fast input lag.
2nd Gen Apple AirPods Pro for $199
The 2nd gen Apple AirPods Pro truly wireless noise cancelling earbuds is back down to Black Friday pricing. Amazon currently has it for $199, a price drop of $50. The Apple AirPods Pro is one of the best sounding “truly wireless” earbuds you’ll find, especially at this price point. “Truly wireless” earbuds have no wires whatsoever, even to each other. In addition to the excellent sound quality, the AirPods Pro is the only AirPods earbuds with active noise cancelling technology.
PlayStation 5 Finally In Stock on Amazon
Amazon is finally letting you buy a PS5 console without an invite. The PS5 God of War Bundle (Disc Edition) is currently the only model available without requiring an invitation. That means Amazon now joins the ranks of Walmart, Best Buy, and Target who have already had PS5 consoles in stock. For Amazon Prime cardholders, that’s great news because now you can get 5% Amazon cashback on this deal. If you’re an Amazon Prime member and you don’t have the Prime card, you’re missing out. The Price card has no annual fee and gives you 5% cashback on all Amazon purchases.
Xbox Series X Finally In Stock on Amazon
This is the same deal with PS5. While other vendors like Walmart, Best Buy, and Target have had the Xbox Series X in stock for a while, Amazon has always required an invitation. Starting today, though, one bundle is available for immediate shipping, and that’s the Xbox Series X Forza Horizon 5 Bundle. Like the PS5, this is eligible for 5% cashback.
Hogwarts Legacy for PC for $50.99
Green Man Gaming has the best deal on the upcoming Hogwarts Legacy game for PC. Pick up the Standard Edition for only $50.99 or the Deluxe Edition for only $59.49. That’s a 15% discount on one of the most anticipated games of 2023. It’s out this coming Friday but anyone who gets the Deluxe edition can start playing now!
GeForce RTX 4090 Starting at $1649.99
Here are two RTX 4090s at or close to MSRP! Everybody knows by now that the RTX 4090 is the undisputed king of the hill. It’s significantly more powerful than any other NVIDIA card out there. It’s laughably more powerful than any AMD card, thanks to its support for DLSS 3.0 and it’s marvelous domination of ray tracing tech.
