It was only three days ago that I posted about the 2TB WD Black SN850X dropping back down to its lowest price, and today, that same 2TB WD Black SN850X SSD has now dropped down to a new lowest-ever price of only $135. It's such a reasonable price for what is one of the best SSDs on the market, and even with Gen 5 SSDs starting to populate the market, you aren't going to see any substantial price drops like this for some time.
With the release of the somewhat disappointing Nvidia RTX 4060 Ti 8GB comes discounts on the last generation's selection of GPUs. With the cost of the latest Nvidia releases hovering between $399 - $470 for Founders Editions and AIB cards, for around $129 more you can bag yourself AMD's more powerful flagship 16GB XFX Speedster Merc 319 RX 6950 XT for $599, which isn't aimed at 1080p gaming.
AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X3D comes with 16 cores and a massive 128MB L3 Cache of stacked 3D V-Cache SRAM chiplets that make it one of the most powerful and fastest CPUs for gaming. If you want the biggest and best that AMD has to offer then this flagship processor has a small $30 discount that brings the price of AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X3D down to $669. It's not as good value as a 7800X3D if you want it just for gaming, but if you're looking to do productivity work on it too, then the extra core and thread count will help.
