Today, several of EVGA’s flagship FTW3 Ultra series GPUs have dropped in price. These include RTX 30 series models like the RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti, and RTX 3090. They are the best video cards that EVGA offers and they come with a transferrable 3 year warranty. In other deal news, Dell is offering some significant promo gift cards when you purchase Thrustmaster’s best joystick or yoke pack. The HOTAS Warthog in particular rarely sees any big discount, so this is a good opportunity to pick up one of the finest PC joysticks on the market. Check out the rest of the deals below.
EVGA’s Best RTX 3080 12GB GPU for Only $999.99
RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3080 Ti, and RTX 3090 also available
This is EVGA’s best edition, the “FTW3 Ultra”, with a massive 3-slot triple fan cooler and an overclocked 1800MHz boost clock speed (compared to the 1710MHz boost clock speed on the 3080 FE) and an extra 2GB of VRAM (12GB vs 10GB on the 3080 FE). The 3080 is significantly more powerful than the previous generation’s champ: the 2080 SUPER. This is the card you want to get if you plan to game at 4K or 1440p with very high framerates. The RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti models are also available at the lowest prices this year.
PNY GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU for Only $588.99
The RTX 3060 Ti is the best value you’ll get if you want to pick up a new RTX 30 series GPU. The RTX 3060 Ti performs on par with the previous generation’s champ, the RTX 2080 SUPER. It’s signficantly more powerful and less than $100 more than the next video card down, the RTX 3060. It’s also only slightly less powerful and almost $200 cheaper than the next card up, the RTX 3070. This card will easily handle games at up to 1440p, it’s more than good enough for VR gaming, and you’ll be able to push 144Hz or even 240Hz at 1080p.
Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog Joystick and Throttle
Bonus $200 Dell eGift Card with purchase
The Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog ranks as our top pick for the best PC joysticks of 2022. A premium joystick commands a premium price, and the HOTAS Warthog joystick and throttle combo retails for $550. Fortunately, Dell is offering a whopping $200 Dell promo gift card. That gift card can be used on anything at Dell, including Nintendo Switch OLED or Xbox Series S consoles. “For the ultimate flight simulation, you need the ultimate flight joystick. That happens to be Thrustmaster’s Hotas Warthog PC joystick. You won’t find cheap plastic or fake buttons added just to give it an authentic look. Instead, you’re getting a joystick with almost a complete metal construction. As far as authenticity goes, the Hotas Warthog PC joystick is perhaps predictably modeled after the A-10C Warthog.”
Thrustmaster TCA Yoke and Throttle Boeing Edition
Bonus $150 Dell eGift Card with purchase
If you’re looking for a quality yoke instead of a joystick to fly civilian aircraft in games like Microsoft Flight Simulator, Thrustmaster has got you covered again. Officially licensed by Boeing, the Thrustmaster TCA Yoke and Throttle is a 1:1 replica yoke system that replicates the Boeing 787 Airliner. Features include a full metal frame, simulated pendular mechanism, adjustable springs, swappable levers, magnetic controls, and more. It’s not cheap at $449.99 MSRP, but Dell is throwing in a bonus $150 Dell promo gift card.

Undoubtedly due to the hype, it has been going in and out of stock throughout the day, so don’t hesitate if you’ve been waiting for this release.
