New Lowest Price Ever: 42″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for Only $1146.99
The 42″ LG Evo C2 OLED TV has hit its lowest price ever on Amazon. The 42″ replaces LG’s 48″ as the smallest 4K OLED TV on the market. The only OLED TV that matches this size is the Sony A90K, which costs $150 more at the moment. It performs just as well as its larger sized siblings as a gaming TV and its perfect for a smaller space, but where it really shines is as a gaming monitor for your PC. The 42″ size is a better size than the 48″ for most of us when we sit only a few feet away from our monitors. The C2 is LG’s newest 2022 model and it is jam packed with features, like the new Evo panel with a higher brightness rating, HDMI 2.1 ports for 4K @ 120Hz on the PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series gaming PC, VRR, ALLM, 4:4:4 chroma sampling, G-SYNC, GeForce Now and Stadia streaming support, sub-1ms response time, near infinite contrast ratio and black levels, and more.
$9 Off New Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Gen Preorder
If you’re weren’t interested in the new AirPods Pro 2nd Gen earbuds in the first place, this $9 discount won’t change your mind. But if you were planning to preorder one anyways, you might as well take the gratuitous savings. It has been almost three years since the first gen Apple AirPods Pro was released, so there are plenty of upgrades under the hood, even if the new AirPods Pro looks cosmetically identical. The biggest upgrade is the new Apple H2 chip, which promises better audio quality and improved active noice cancellation. There’s also a new feature called “Adaptive Transparency Mode”. This mode actually amplifies the ambient sound so that you can hear your surroundings better. In-ear earbuds traditionally have very good noise suppression even without active noise cancellation enabled, so this is a great way for people to listen in on the outside world without having to remove the earbuds.
Officially PS5 Certified: WD Black SN850 M.2 SSD
Today Amazon has the 1TB WD Black SN850 PS5-compatible SSD with heatsink for just a tad over $100. The WD SN850 is currently the most popular and one of the best SSDs to get for your PS5 storage upgrade. It’s also the only SSD that’s officially certified for the PS5 console. It’s blazing fast drive with transfer speeds rated at up to 7,000 MB/s and a PCIe Gen4 interface. This model even includes a heatsink that fits in the PS5 slot and is more robust than most other preattached heatsinks from other brands.
Acer Predator Orion 3000 Intel Core i7-11700F RTX 3070 Gaming PC for $1314.92
There’s a new price drop on this Acer Predator Orion 3000 gaming PC that makes it almost $100 less that what we saw on Amazon Prime Day. The RTX 3070 is significantly more powerful than the RTX 3060 Ti or the RTX 2080 SUPER. It is the perfect card for 1440p gaming, even at high refresh rates. It’s paired with an 11th generation Intel Core i7-11700F 8-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and 1TB HDD. The case looks slick too, with its windowed side panel and RGB lighting.

Amazon has the best price on this RTX 3080 equipped Alienware Aurora gaming PC. The RTX 3080 is your best bang for your buck for 60+fps 4K gaming. It’s significantly more powerful than the RTX 3070 or the RTX 2080 Ti. In addition to the powerful RTX 3080 GPU, this PC boasts a liquid-cooled AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD.
20% Off Plex Pass Lifetime Subscription
Plex hosts this offer only once or twice a year, and it’s the best deal you’ll find for a Plex Pass subscription. A lifetime sub normally costs $119.95, so you’d be paying a one time only fee of $95.99 after the discount. Plex is an incredibly useful service that lets you organize your movies, TVs, podcasts, and music from all of your different sources into one centralized location, and then stream them to any of your devices, like your TV, PC, or phone.
2K Megahits PC Bundle at Humble
The latest Humble Bundle is easily one of the best deals we’ve seen for PC gamers this year. Pay as low as $16 and you’ll get 18 games, including some amazing titles like the XCOM Ultimate Collection (includes XCOM 2), Bioshock: The Collection, Civilization VI, Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition, and Mafia Definitive Edition.

Nintendo Switch OLED for for $309
Amazon Store UK has the Nintendo Switch OLED with White Joy-Cons for only $309. That’s only $10 more than the cost of the Nintendo Switch non-OLED model. The Nintendo Switch OLED features a larger, more vibrant OLED touchscreen display, an upgrade to the terrible OG kickstand, an ethernet port on the docking station, and an exclusive white Switch shell and matching Joy-Cons. If you have the budget to spring for this one, we definitely think it’s worth the upgrade over the vanilla Switch.
Note that since this is shipped from Amazon Store UK and not Amazon, you’ll be receiving the UK version of the Switch OLED. The Switch OLED is not region locked, so you’ll be able to play US games without any hassle. However, you’ll be receiving a UK plug. You’ll need to get a UK to US plug adapter in order to charge your Switch here in the States.
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3090 Ti GPU for $999.99
There’s a big price drop on inarguably the most powerful consumer video card on the market right now. The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3090 Ti GPU, which launched earlier in the year with an eye watering MSRP of $1999, has dropped a whopping $1000 today to $999.99. The RTX 3090 Ti is roughly 20%-25% faster than the RTX 3080 and about 10% faster than the RTX 3090 at 4K resolutions and beyond. At under 4K resolutions, this card would be completely overkill. For most people, saving $350 and going withe the RTX 3080 deal mentioned below would probably be the better proposition. But if you absolutely want the best of the best, you can’t beat this price.
Alienware x15 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1499.99
This might be the lowest price we’ve ever seen for an Alienware x15 with an RTX 3070 GPU. The Alienware x15 is a newer, thinner redesign of the m15. In fact, it’s the thinnest Alienware laptop ever. Because it hasn’t been around as long, it’s harder to find a good deal on it. This particular config comes well equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7-11800H CPU, RTX 3070 GPU with a TDP rating of 110W (with dynamic boost), 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. There’s even a coupon code that drops the price by another $100.

Preorder the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 Core for Only $129
The Xbox Elite Series 2 Core wireless controller will be released on September 21. This is fundamentally the same controller as the older generation Xbox Elite Series 2 controller at a much lower MSRP. The Elite Series 2 Core controller features pro gaming features like adjustable-tension thumbsticks, wrap-around rubberized grip, and shorter hair trigger locks. Microsoft was able to significantly cut the price by removing some of the accessories that the original Elite controller came with. Specifically, the Elite Series 2 Core does not come with the extra paddles, thumbsticks, and d-pad. These accessories are still compatible with the Elite Series 2 Core, but if you want to get them, you’d have to buy them separately.
