Weekend Hardware Sales - $148 Z87-GD65, $70 G700s, $195 27" Display

Posted on April 14, 2014

As consolation prizes for those of us not able to get out to PAX, here are some deals for you to take advantage of. In this edition of our weekend hardware sales round-up, we've got HyperX Blu Red Series 8GB RAM, a Corsair H60 CLC system, the Logitech G700s laser mouse we reviewed, and the MSI Z87-GD65 motherboard.


MSI Z87-GD65 ($148): MSI's GD65 motherboard is the beginning of their enthusiast-class boards (“entry-level enthusiast”). The GD65 is a great overclocking board for Intel's LGA1150 (Haswell) socket. Matching instant savings and an MIR of $20 drops this to a final price of $148.

Corsair H60 CLC ($55): With $17 off and an additional $10 from MIR, this is a cheap introduction to CLCs for your system. The cooler design is compatible with both AMD and Intel socket types (as with virtually all Asetek coolers); it's not the best CLC on the market, but if you really want liquid and want to get in it cheap, this is a starting point.

Logitech G700s Gaming Mouse ($70): With multiple gaming profiles, 8200 DPI, and both wired or wireless connectivity (depending on your needs), the Logitech G700s has positioned itself very well in the gaming input device market. Add that to the instant savings of $30 and you have a decent choice for a new or replacement mouse.

HyperX Blu Red Series 8GB ($65): Kingston's HyperX Blu brand of memory is a good option for any entry-level system. The low-profile heat-spreaders allow it to fit in almost any system without issue. The $25 discount and free shipping make this a no-brainer if you're wanting some extra RAM to fit a red color scheme (and if you're on a budget).

Pick of the Week

ASUS VE278H Black 27" 2ms ($195): This ASUS LED/LCD monitor should be an amazing addition to any system. Very short response times and great contrast ratios make for a reasonable gaming option. Add that to a $75 instant savings plus MIR and promo code JPMNLKYWSQ05 at checkout and you bring this monitor down from $310 to a comfortable $195.
