With a mix of new Gen 5 SSDs slowly trickling out on the market and many more to come in the next year, the price of Gen 4 drives has been recently dropping consistently. That is fantastic news for those on current Gen 4 platforms who are looking for an upgrade or extra storage but have no intention of upgrading to Gen 5 anytime soon.
The Samsung 980 Pro 1TB SSD is only $79 at Amazon— that's the lowest price we've seen for this SSD according to Camelizer. This fast drive offers sequential read and write speeds of 7,000 and 5,100 MBps which is great for fast load times in gaming, or for hosting a speedy operating system and is one of the best SSDs on the market.
The XPS Desktop has dropped a further $100 to just $1,099 at Dell. This desktop computer has some great components for gaming inside that include a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-12700 processor and an Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti graphics card. At this price, the Dell XPS Desktop is getting close to being a great option for a gaming PC under $1,000.
If you don't own a gaming console or aren't already using an Xbox or PlayStation controller, then other 3rd-party peripheral options like this Logitech G F310 gamepad for $14 are worth considering. Connecting via USB and with a very familiar layout that includes a D-pad, twin analog sticks, and 10 programmable buttons, the Logitech G F310 offers real bang for the buck at this price.
