It also has the Amazon Fire TV smart interface built right in, so there’s no need to pick up an extra dongle. This TV is sold by Amazon but shipped by Best Buy… you can even choose in-store pickup from Best Buy on the Amazon product page.
65″ LG C1 4K OLED Smart Gaming TV for $1579.99
If money isn’t an object, OLED TVs are considered the best TVs you can buy right now. Compared to traditional LED LCD TVs, they offer better image quality, deeper blacks, better contrast ratio, wider color gamut, and super fast response times. They excel at both gaming and viewing 4K HDR content. In terms of general usability, they consume less power and they’re very thin and sit flusher against the wall. Amongst OLED TVs, the LG C1 is oft considered the flag bearer; it’s the one TV that all other OLED TVs are compared against. The LG OLED TV boasts several generations of optimizations under its belt and the latest C1 model is future proofed with technology like HDMI 2.1 (4K @ 120Hz), variable refresh rate, G-SYNC, the newest LG A9 Gen4 processor and a revamped webOS smart TV interface.

Samsung PRO Plus 512GB Micro SDXC Card
Nintendo Switch compatible
Today only, Newegg has the Samsung PRO Plus 512GB U1 A2 Micro SDXC Card for $54.99, cheaper than anyone else. This is a great card for your Nintendo Switch storage. The console only comes with 32GB of built-in storage. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for example, already takes up 14GB of storage by itself. The Samsung PRO PLUS is faster than your average Micro SDXC card (including the Nintendo branded ones) so it’s also a great choice for devices that can take advantage of its faster speed, like a phone or camera.
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.
Seagate Firecuda 8TB RGB Gaming Hub
You’ll need a traditional hard drive instead of an SSD in order to get 8TB of storage for an affordable price, but you might as well get the fastest hard drive there is. The Seagate Firecuda 8TB Gaming Hub sports a USB 3.2 interface and a performance hard drive that spins at 7200RPM as well as fancy Razer Chroma-compatible RGB accent lighting. It also has USB 3.2 Type A and Type C ports as passthrough. It normally retails for over $200, but Gamestop has far and away the lowest price at only $138.99. Considering the fact that a regular ol’ non-RGB 8TB 7200RPM external hard drive usually costs more than this hard drive, you can see why this is a pretty sweet deal.
Alienware m15 R5 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop
Update: To get this deal, you must select Support – 1 Year Hardware Service with Onsite In-Home Service After Remote Diagnosis ($100) in the customization page and then apply coupon code “50OFF699” in your shopping cart.
This Alienware m15 laptop is equipped with a powerful AMD Ryzen 7 5800H 8-core processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and of course the RTX 3070 video card. The RTX 3070 found in this laptop has a TDP rating of 125W (115W + 10W dynamic boost), which is higher than the RTX 3070 TDP rating you’ll find in most other gaming laptops. Higher TDP means more power is supplied to the graphics card, and that directly equates to better performance in games. Most laptops are willing to sacrifice gaming performance in order to conserve power and reduce heat, allowing for thinner laptop designs with more basic cooling. Alienware laptops, however, prioritize gaming performance first and foremost. The video cards are more powerful, the proprietary “Cryo-Tech” cooling is more effective at cooling the components, and the main tradeoff is s slightly heftier 5.5lb weight.
Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16″ RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop
Here’s another great deal on a powerful Lenovo gaming laptop from Walmart. The RTX 3070 found in this laptop has a TDP rating of 140W. That is the maximum TDP rating you’ll find for a mobile RTX 3070 graphics card, meaning this is the one of the most powerful RTX 3070 gaming laptops you can get. Higher TDP means more power is supplied to the graphics card, and that directly equates to better performance in games.
65″ Hisense H9G 4K QLED TV for $653.61
The H9G was Hisense’s flagship (top-end) 4K TV of 2020. It has phenomenal HDR image quality thanks to its quantum series ULED panel with 120Hz native refresh rate, full-array LED backlighting with 120 local dimming zones, and 1,000-nit peak brightness rating. It’s certainly the best looking 65″ TV at this price point.
65″ TCL 4-Series 4K Roku TV for $398
For most people, the three biggest priorities for a TV are (1) price, (2) size, and (3) 4K or not 4K. That’s why a TV like this 65″ TCL 4-series is so popular; it’s a massive 65″ 4K TV at a mere $400, it offers a fine picture without burning a hole in your wallet, and it even has built-in Roku smart TV functionality. It might not look as good as a $1500 TV, but the hundreds of dollars you save can easily outweigh the difference in image quality.
55″ JVC 4K QLED Roku TV for $248
Simply put, if you’re looking for a good sized 4K smart TV and want to pay as little as possible, you can’t get better than this.

CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme RTX 3060 Gaming PC
Currently this is one of the least expensive RTX 3060 gaming rigs we can find. It’s sold and shipped by Amazon direct (not a 3rd party vendor). Although the ship date is a little while off in early April, there are reports of some people getting it much earlier. 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. That means it handles 1080p gaming beautifully and has the chops to take on 1440p and VR.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3080 PC for $1799.99
The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5900 CPU, which is still one of the best processors out there, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It’s been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.
New Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
This is the newest generation model with the MagSafe compatible wireless charger. The AirPods Pro is considered one of the best noise-cancelling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. The noise cancellation is considered to be even better than the Bose Quietcomfort because of the natural noise isolating design of the in-ear earbuds.
Apple Watch Series 7 and SE
The Series 7 is Apple’s latest and greatest watch. Today, both the 41mm and 45mm models are heavily discounted on Amazon (cheaper than Black Friday). The biggest upgrade the Series 7 has over the Series 6 is the display. It has the same always-on Retina display, but it’s 20% bigger and features a more crack-resistant front crystal screen. It also adds on even more health-related features, like measuring your blood oxygen or taking an ECG. If the Apple Watch Series 7 is out of your budget and you don’t think you’d make much use out of the health features, the newest Apple Watch SE is also on sale today at the lowest price ever. This affordable smartwatch features a Retina OLED display, Aple S5 chip, optical heart rate sensor, fall detection, and an always-on altimeter.

The first QD-OLED panel on the market
After much anticipation, Dell is now offering the Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED gaming monitor for $1299.99 on its website. Although by no means inexpensive, this is the first ever QD-OLED monitor we’ve seen and thus the price point is surprisingly reasonable for the new tech. 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. If you don’t put your order in now, you’ll have to wait a very, very long time to receive it; estimated ship date has already been pushed back to July.

HP Victus RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for $975
This is far and away the lowest price we have ever seen for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3060 Ti GPU. Once you hit the product page, you’ll have to select “RTX 3060” for $250 and a “500W Power Supply) for $50. You can buy the system as is, or you can choose to add a few more choice upgrades. You certainly have leeway with this super cheap price.
ASUS Vivobook 14″ Laptop w/ WQXGA+ OLED Display
