Right now, you can pick up Intel's Core i5-12400 CPU for just $159 from Amazon — its lowest price ever. This mid-tier gaming and productivity CPU is such good value for the money that it easily made it onto our best gaming CPU list.

Dropping to MSRP price today is ASRock's OC Formula Radeon RX 6900 XT for $999 from Newegg. AMD's flagship model is soon to be replaced by the 6950 XT so that could be one of the reasons why we are seeing some nice price drops on the 6900 XT recently.

One of our favorite 3D printers, the Elegoo Saturn 3D, is currently on sale for just $399 from Amazon, that's $150 savings off of the usual retail price.

    Agreed. And this means that the $159.99 only with coupon and only in store at Micro Center for the 5600X will have to become the regular street price for that chip, in order to keep moving them.

    Well, for a new system, anyway, where they have to buy the motherboard. Even at a higher price, the 5600 and 5600X and up are still bargain for someone upgrading and keeping their same motherboard.
