Down to its lowest-ever price, the Zen 3 Ryzen 5 5500 CPU is on sale for only $81 at Newegg. This six-core 12-thread chip was AMD's answer to the 12400F and at only $81 makes a fantastic budget-oriented choice for a lower-end AM4 system. The caveats of this processor are that it is only PCIe 3.0 and has a humble L3 cache of 16MB. See our review of the Ryzen 5 5500 for more information.

Intel's Core i5-12600K has been reduced to $204 thanks to a promotion at Newegg that takes $45 off of the price of this 12th Gen CPU. Use code SMBCT485 at checkout to receive this discount. With six performance cores and four efficiency cores, this chip is great for gaming and productivity work and also comes with an integrated GPU. 

Looking for some storage that's not going to break the bank, and makes the most of the Gen 3 bandwidth? Then, good news, the 1TB Samsung 980 SSD has dropped to only $44, giving you an option for an additional storage drive or an upgrade to an older PC or laptop.

    This is an excellent price for a low power workstation, light gaming rig, and would make a superb placeholder for a higher end CPU if on a tight budget.

    Intel Core i5-12600K: now $204 at Newegg with promo code
    I find it funny that its normal price is $250, and yet the non-K i5-12600 is selling for $258.
