My internet is OK, but it's by no means the fastest, and I don't uninstall games that I'm not currently playing due to their file size — it would take eons to re-download them. Also, with the size of some of the latest AAA games, a 1TB SSD or smaller can't really hold that many full-size games anymore. So, when deals like this come up for large-capacity SSDs it's worth taking a look at for game hoarders like myself.
At only 6 cents per GB, the Gen 4 Acer Predator GM7000 4TB M.2 SSD is now $249 at Amazon. At this price, a 4TB SSD is finally almost comparable to stacking smaller drives with similar specs. With respectable read and write speeds up to 7400MB/s and 6300MB/s, the Acer Predator GM7000 is no slouch and should be able to speedily load your games library with ease.
One of the best CPUs for gaming has a whopping $90 knocked off of its price over at Newegg. If you use code MDSCS2343 at the checkout, you can pick up AMD's Ryzen 9 7900X3D CPU for only $499. That is the cheapest it's ever been according to PC Partpicker. This chip uses a large stacked memory cache to beef up its performance in gaming.
If you're on the hunt for a new gaming laptop with the latest hardware inside, then take a gander at the Acer Nitro 16 which has $150 knocked off — making it just $1,349 over at B&H Photo. Packing a 3.2GHz AMD Ryzen 7 7735HS 8-Core CPU and RTX 4070 graphics card, the Nitro 16 is a bit of a beast when it comes to taking your gaming on the move.
