Yesterday we had one of the best SSD the SK hynix Platinum P41 on sale, and today I've spotted a great price on another of our favorite SSDs, the 2TB Samsung 980 Pro PCIe Gen 4 SSD which is currently on sale for $179 (opens in new tab). This drive offers a large 2TB of fast storage capacity and you can see how it performs in our review of the Samsung  980 PRO (opens in new tab).

For me, building your own PC is always the best option, but for those that don't feel comfortable constructing their own computer from a compiled list of compatible parts like on our 'How to build a PC (opens in new tab)' guide, your next best bet is to look at a pre-built PC such as this iBuyPower Gaming PC that's on sale for $1,099 (opens in new tab). Just have an idea of what specific parts you desire most like the GPU and processor. This model for instance has a Ryzen 7 5700 CPU, and a 12GB RTX 3060 GPU.

If a big desktop PC isn't your thing, then go for a much smaller gaming laptop. Today we have a Lenovo Legion 5 laptop that's up for $650 at Walmart (opens in new tab) and contains an RTX 3050 Ti and Ryzen 5 5600H processor. These specs are perfect for playing the latest games on medium to high settings.

We also have a couple of deals on some Dell hardware today, so keep scrolling for more information.

    Nice to see the 980 pros on sale considering the issues with 990 pros going bad (whether truly burnt out or software reporting bug).

    Could it be due to the bad news about their fast expiration rate in the news lately??
