New Xbox Series X Wireless Headset
This is the lowest price we’ve seen so far for the official Xbox wireless headset for the Xbox Series X and S consoles. This headset is Microsoft’s answer to the deservedly popular Sony Pulse 3D wireless headset. It pairs with the Xbox Series S|X without requiring a dongle and you’ll also be able to use it with your other Bluetooth-enabled devices. Other features include Dolby Atmos, DTS: Headphone X, and Windows Sonic support, generous 15-hour battery life, and super comfortable plushy earcups.

Alienware AW3420DW 34″ 3440×1440 Curved 2ms 120Hz G-SYNC IPS Gaming Monitor
The 2020 Alienware AW3420DW is one of the best 34″ ultra-wide gaming monitors out there today. Today’s price is even lower than what we saw on Prime Day of this year. This is an outstanding gaming monitor; the IPS panel offers very wide viewing angles and 98% DCI-P3 color accuracy, the 2ms response time means no visual lag or ghosting, and the 120Hz refresh rate and G-SYNC support means no stuttering or tearing.
Back in Stock on Amazon: PS5-Compatible WD Black SN850 1TB M.2 SSD with Heatsink
Amazon finally has the PS5-compatible WD Black SN850 1TB SSD with heatsink back in stock. This is currently the most popular SSD to get for your PS5 internal storage upgrade. It’s blazing fast drive with transfer speeds rated at up to 7,000 MB/s and a PCIe Gen4 interface and it comes preinstalled with a heatsink. It’s also confirmed by Western Digital themselves to be compatible with the PS5.
Lowest Price Ever for a PS5-Compatible SSD with Heatsink: XPG GAMMIX S70 Blade 1TB M.2 SSD
This is the latest SSD that’s specifically designed for your PS5 storage upgrade. It also happens to be the lowest priced PS5-compatible 1TB SSD with heatsink available. In fact, it’s even less expensive than most compatible SSDs without heatsink. The S70 Blade boasts transfer rates up to 7,400 MB/s and a PCIe Gen4 interface. It includes a PS5-compatible low-profile aluminum heatsink, but for whatever reason you’ll have to put it on the SSD itself (which isn’t hard, it’s just adhesive).
Sony WH1000XM4 Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones (As Good As Bose)
The ever popular and highly rated Sony WH1000XM4 headphones are back down to $248. This is the lowest price of the year by $30. The WH1000XM4 is oft considered one of the best noise cancelling headsets under $400; it’s comparable if not better than the Bose QuietComfort headphones, both in terms of audio quality and noise cancellation.
17% Off Tales of Arise for PS5
This is the first time we’ve seen the PS5 version of the game discounted anywhere. Tales of Arise is one of the best Tales games in a long while. I’ve beaten the game myself, and I haven’t had as much fun playing a Tales game since Vesperia and Symphonia. If you’ve seen the gameplay videos or played the demo at all, you’re probably already aware that Tales of Arise graphics are a massive improvement over its predecessors. That’s because Bandai Namco abandoned its proprietary graphics engine for the much more powerful and flexible Unreal Engine. Aside from the revamped graphics, expect the same well-loved gameplay from before, including real-time combo-chaining battles, a wonderfully generic yet epic storyline, and cringe-worthy yet endearing character skits.
65″ LG CX 4K OLED Smart TV for $1399.99
Refurbished with 90-day Woot (Amazon) Warranty
Note that this is a refurbished model with a 90-day Woot warranty. Woot is owned and operated by Amazon. The CX-series is LG’s 2020 OLED TV. The OLED panel blows away any IPS, VA, or TN monitor in black levels, color rendition, response time, and HDR. The new 2021 C1-series model has very negligible improvements over the CX-series and in terms of image quality, they’re practically identical. The CX OLED TV is a perfect match for the PS5 console because it has HDMI 2.1 inputs which can output 4K at 120Hz.
2021 LG C1 65″ 4K OLED TV Price Drop
Now with 6 Months of Free HBO Max
Today the newest LG 65″ 4K OLED TV has dropped to the lowest price we’ve ever seen. The LG C1 OLED TV improves upon last year’s highly-rated CX model with an upgraded A9 Gen 4 processor that delivers slightly better image quality, better 4K scaling, and improved audio handling as well as a new webOS smart TV redesign. The C1 OLED TV also looks good when paired to a gaming PC with an RTX 30 series video card because it has HDMI 2.1 inputs that support 4K at 120Hz and G-SYNC. It’s easily one of the best (if not the best) TVs on the market right now. For a limited time, you also get 6 free months of HBO Max, so you can catch up on blockbuster movies like Godzilla vs Kong, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, and more, as well as upcoming movies like Dune and The Matrix Resurrections.
Rubber Encased Hex Dumbbells on Sale
If you’ve been stockpiling exercise equipment to work out at home, you might have realized that the cost of weights adds up. You could be paying upwards of $2-$4 per pound of weights if you’ve been buying stuff at regular retail price. Deals like these aren’t flashy, but they’re very welcome. The dumbbells listed above cost just over $1 per pound. They’re rubber encased to protect your floor, and the chrome finished ergo handles are textured for a better grip.
Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3080 PC for $2099.99
Do you need a rig that can run Battlefield 2042 in 4K? If you’ve been on the lookout for the extremely elusive RTX 3080 video card for your (up to 4K) gaming needs, then check out this ready-to-go prebuilt Alienware Aurora gaming PC from Dell. The $2200 PC comes equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 512GB SSD, and a separate 1TB hard drive for storage. 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 is the card I’m currently using for the BF2042 open beta, and I can run the game at 4K resolution and over 60fps consistently at medium to high settings.
HP OMEN RTX 3080 Gaming PC for $1899.99
Select “RTX 3080” and “800W Power Supply” as upgrades
Here’s another RTX 3080 config that’s worth a look. Although its overall specs aren’t as good as the Alienware config listed above, you simply won’t find an RTX 3080 equipped pre-built PC for a cheaper price. In fact, the RTX 3080 by itself probably goes for a similar price on eBay. It’s paired with the latest AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor (which can be upgraded). The 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD is lean, but you can easily pick out and swap in your own components.
