AMD's beastly Ryzen 9 5950X is seeing a price reduction today, bringing it down to its lowest ever price of $499 on Amazon. This CPU is a productivity powerhouse and the current flagship AMD processor--at least until Ryzen 7000 arrives. We've reviewed the 5950X and looked at how it fits in the CPU hierarchy compared to the other CPUs that are currently available.

Of course, it's not long until the new AM5 platform launches and a new slew of CPUs from AMD hit the market. But if you're looking for an upgrade path for an AM4-based system, then this could be an excellent option to keep your rig relevant for a few more years.  

The Pixio PX277 Prime monitor is reduced to just $229. For this price, you can walk away with a 27-inch 2K IPS panel with a 165Hz refresh rate on DisplayPort and a 1ms response time. This is a quality monitor for the money and the P277 Prime reviewed well in our testing, with some of the only negatives being its "out of the box calibration" and "no extra contrast in HDR mode". 

If you're looking save some money on a high-speed Gen4 NVMe SSD, then consider the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 1TB SSD for $127. With great read and write speeds, this storage drive is great value while it's on sale and can help speed up your load times in games.

    Daaaamn... that price is amazing, and it hurts me to see it. : P
    I do a lot of video transcoding (and gaming), and have been planning and saving to upgrade to this from a 3700x. I would have been able to afford this, if I didn't desperately need more storage and a replacement for a dead optical drive last week.
    Oh well... it can keep waiting. I really couldn't wait on those drives that I bought, though. Dem's da breaks.

    I upgraded my PC last September with both these components (5950x and Rocket 4 Plus SSD) and I paid almost $1000 for both. Now they are $626 together. Oh, well.... They are still lightning fast at DB queries on the new engine I created. See the demo at OVICKCkWMZEView:
