Nature continues to heal (metaphorically, of course; reality still doesn’t look so good), and high-powered GPUs continue to become readily available – with additional discounts. Speaking of which, EVGA is offering great prices on refurbished cards. The RTX 3070 Ti XC3 is just $579.99 ($130 off), and the RTX 3070 Ti FTW3 is just $10 more for $589.99 ($230 off). These cards are very similar, with the FTW3 having a marginally faster clock speed and bolder RGB lighting.

Whatever your fancy, both are slightly faster than the Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition. And with those prices, these refurbished models cost a little less too. EVGA calls them “B-stock” merchandise, but they are refurbished. Even so, EVGA claims they offer the “performance and reliability of a new product of the same model”. Plus, each comes with a one-year warranty.

One extra thing to keep in mind is that if you haven’t bought a graphics card recently, check the measurements of any case you plan on installing it in. These things can take up a lot of space.

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3

EVGA’s RTX 3070 Ti XC3 Ultra is a PCI-Express 4.0 graphics card with 8GB of graphics memory, DLSS, ray tracing and discrete RGB lighting (EVGA logo only).

If you’re looking for a gaming laptop on a budget that’s also great at other common laptop tasks, the next-gen Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is priced down to $1,099.99 at Best Buy. That’s a $300 discount on this great laptop, which was the model to beat when it launched in 2020. Yes, it’s 2022, which means it’s a little long now, but it’s a lot cheaper than the current model. And its AMD Ryzen 7 5800HS processor, RTX 3060, 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD are still very capable today – especially since it’s only outputting 1080p on its 14-inch 144Hz display. Keep in mind that it doesn’t have a webcam, so you’ll need an external option if Zoom calls are an important part of your routine. Read our review.

Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 (2020)

The ROG Zephyrus G14 is a great laptop for drinking gaming. Its AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, GeForce RTX 3060 and 16GB of RAM manage great performance with games played on its 1080p 144Hz display, and it’s also a good Windows laptop for everyday use.

We often mention the Samsung 980 Pro NVMe SSD in our deals coverage, and that’s because it offers very fast speeds at increasingly attractive prices. If you want to upgrade the storage on your PC or PS5, the 2TB model that doesn’t get discounted as often as the 1TB model is cheaper today. The Samsung 980 Pro 2TB – complete with pre-installed heatsink – is priced at $249.99 ($150 off) on Amazon. This could be half the cost of a PS5 itself, but think of all the games you can put on it.

Samsung 980 Pro (2TB) with heatsink

Samsung’s 980 Pro is a fast PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD capable of sequential read speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s and write speeds of up to 5,000 MB/s. These specs make it a great choice for a modern PCIe 4.0-equipped PC or a PS5, the latter requiring a heatsink.

A few more midweek deals to get you past the hump:

  • 8BitDo’s special edition Pro 2 controller in new transparent black and purple colors is $5 if you pre-order before July 28th. It will cost you $54.99. It is compatible with Nintendo Switch, PC, macOS, Android and Raspberry Pi. Read our review.

  • If you want a more affordable Apple Watch, Woot has last year’s Series 6 in red for $279.99 ($120 off the regular price of a Series 7). It is a 40mm GPS model in brand new condition with a full one year warranty. It’s like buying an Apple Watch SE, but with an always-on display. However, keep in mind that we saw the Series 7 drop to that price point recently during Prime Day, and a Series 8 announcement is likely not far away.
  • Razer’s Huntsman Tournament Edition TKL mechanical gaming keyboard has dropped to $59.97 (about $70), which is even cheaper than during Prime Day. It uses linear optical switches, which can be useful for fast-paced gaming.

  • The Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 is on sale on Amazon for $59.97 (about $70), which is the lowest price to date. It’s a no-frills plug and play gaming headset, although it has large 50mm drivers. There aren’t many in stock, so don’t hesitate if you need them.
