Although GPU prices have fallen considerably since the highs of the great graphics card shortage, there has been a slight plateau reached in the last couple of weeks with regard to the retail price drops being offered. In fact, some cards have been going back up in price, but, this could be due to Amazon Prime Day being on the horizon and a need to artificially inflate prices before offering what looks to be bigger discounts. 

The MSI Ventus RTX 3080 (12GB Version) has dropped back down to its previous lowest price of $769 (opens in new tab) at Newegg. If you need a new GPU and can't wait until the 40-series launches then this is the best deal available at the moment for the 12GB version of the RTX 3080.

Today also sees price drops on several CPUs — all to the lowest prices we've seen. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X has dropped to a low $174 (opens in new tab). That's a very attractive-looking AM4 upgrade for those on a budget. The 5600X (opens in new tab) is also a fantastic gaming and productivity-focused CPU.

With 29% knocked off the price of the NZXT H710 ATX Mid-Tower PC Case - making it $119 (opens in new tab), this is an awesome deal for a pretty PC enclosure. The NZXT H710 has nice aesthetics and build functionality and would be a nice addition to any new build project.

    The MSI Ventus RTX 3080 comes in a Ryzen box? That must require some next-level Tetris skills.

    Why has the MSI Ventus RTX 3080 been $200 cheaper than the other 12GB 3080's? Is there something wrong with it?

    Wondering the same thing. Based on reviews the fan noise seems to be an issue and my understanding is that the Ventus line doesn't have the best cooling.
