Today, we see the Intel flagship Core i9-12900K drop down to its lowest price of $539 (opens in new tab) at Newegg with code FTPBU537 used at checkout. We reviewed the 12900K (opens in new tab) and gave it an Editors Choice award for its exceptional gaming and multi-threaded performance. 

When it comes to MMO mice, there isn't a massive amount of options for mice tailored for games that require a multitude of buttons for spells and macros. It's nice to see that one of the more recent entries into this genre has received a discount. The SteelSeries Aerox 9 Wireless MMO Mouse is now $109 (opens in new tab) - bringing it more in line with its competition at this price point. 

Corsair's K70 RGB MK.2 Keyboard with low-profile keys is reduced to $99 (opens in new tab) at Best Buy.  Featuring Cherry MX low-profile mechanical switches, this keyboard offers less travel distance on key presses for those super competitive gamers who require every edge.

Dell G15 Ryzen Edition (Ryzen 5, RTX 3060): was $1,450, now $1,273 at Dell (opens in new tab)
If you're after an affordable, attractive low-end gaming laptop, this model sports a capable AMD Ryzen 5 5800H CPU and an RTX 3060. You'll have to keep settings fairly low in some games if you want to game close to the 15-inch screen's 165 Hz refresh. But for esports and AAA titles around 60 fps, this laptop should deliver a solid experience.
