If you’re in the market for a gaming laptop, today’s a good day for you. There are several higher end gaming laptops that are marked down, including a Lenovo 17″ RTX 3070 (130W TDP) laptop for only $1299 or a 16″ RTX 3080 (165W TDP) laptop for only $1799. In other deal news, Amazon is the only place to pick up the new LEGO Horizon Forbidden West Tallneck figure now that it has sold out at the LEGO Shop, Pikmin 3 Deluxe is down to $29.99 for the first time ever, and the Terraforming Mars board game is available at an unbeatable price.
XPG 15″ Intel i7 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1499
Adata manufactures this XPG “Xenia” laptop, and it’s actually well rated for its build quality and performance, especially for its price point. This particular model boasts an RTX 3070 with a TDP rating of 145W. That is the highest TDP one can achieve with a mobile RTX 3070 GPU, which means that performance-wise this laptop should be at or near the top of the pack. It’s paired with a 15″ 2560×1440 display, Intel Core i7 CPU, 32GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD.
Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 6 17″ RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop
You’ll be hard pressed to find a less expensive gaming laptop that’s equipped with an RTX 3070 mobile GPU, let alone one that also boasts a 17″ display. Even more impressive is that the RTX 3070 has a rated TDP of 130W, which means it’s more powerful than most RTX 3070 equipped laptops out there. As a bonus, 3 months of Xbox Game Pass is also included.
Lenovo Legion 7 16″ RTX 3080 Gaming Laptop
This particular Lenovo Legion 7 laptop sports an RTX 3080 GPU with a TDP rating of 165W with dynamic boost. That’s the best mobile GPU you can find, anywhere, and thus the Legion 7 is one of the most powerful gaming laptops on the market. It’s paired with an equally powerful AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor and a 16″ 2560×1600 display.
LEGO Horizon Forbidden West: Tallneck 76989 Building Kit Only Available on Amazon
Currently this very popular newly released LEGO set is only available on Amazon; it’s currently sold out at the LEGO Store. The delivery estimate says 1-2 months, but you’ll very likely receive the item well before that. This is a very fun build; the 1,222 brick count means that it will last you a decent amount of time and the final design is definitely worth displaying amongst your LEGO collection. We built this model ourselves and loved it.
Terraforming Mars Board Game for $37.88
This is the lowest price ever for an excellent board game with tons of replayability. This is a pretty complex board game that involves up to 5 players cooperating AND competing amongst each other to make Mars a a habitable planet by raising the temperature, the oxygen level, and the ocean coverage. Average playtime session is about 2 hours long. This is one of the best economic strategy games around and well worth the price, especially with this nearly 50% price drop.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe (Switch) for $29.99
For the first time ever, Pikmin 3 Deluxe has dropped to only $29.99. We’ve seen it once before for $39.99, but otherwise this charming little game almost never gets discounted. Pikmin 3 Deluxe is a remake of the 2013 Wii original, and it’s a quality remake at that. We gave this game a 9/10 at IGN, remarking that “small but fun content additions and a boatload of quality-of-life tweaks make an excellent game even better.”
Alienware AW2521H 25″ 1080p 1ms 360Hz IPS Gaming Monitor for $379.99
The Alienware AW2521H is normally a very expensive monitor; it currently sells for $679.99 from Dell direct. This is the ultimate FPS gamer monitor. It boasts a 25″ display with 1080p resolution, a blazing fast 360Hz refresh rate over DisplayPort, 1ms gtg response time, and G-SYNC certification. The IPS panel features a 99% sRGB color space and wide viewing angles. There’s even a 4-port USB 3.2 Gen 1 hub for your peripherals.

This Vizio 5.1.2 sound system sells for $499.99 everywhere else. This is a well built home theater that includes a soundbar speaker, two satellites, and a 6″ subwoofer. There are a total of eleven built-in high performance spaekers, with two dedicated upfiring speakers for the true Dolby Atmos experience.
GeForce RTX 3080 GPU From $879.99 (and ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3080 GPU for $999.99)
Update: The ASUS ROG STRIX model is pricier than the other two offerings at $999.99, but that’s because the STRIX is considered the best of the best of the RTX 30 series cards. It offers a significally OC’ed 1935MHz boost clock and, thanks to an extremely beefy heatsink, one of the lowest noise profiles of any RTX 3080.
These are easily the best prices we’ve seen for an RTX 3080 video card since launch. At this price point, the RTX 3080 is a better value than the 3080 Ti, which costs at least $250 more at reputable vendors. The performance gap between the 3080 and 3080 Ti is about 3%, hardly noticeable. The 3080 is significantly more powerful than the previous generation’s flagship RTX 2080 SUPER. This is the card you want to get if you plan to game at 4K.
GeForce RTX 3070 GPU for $649.99
RTX 3070 Ti for $699.99
The RTX 3070 is another card that outpaces the RTX 2080 SUPER. It’s a great card for 1440p gaming, even at up to 144Hz refresh rates, and has the chops to take on 4K gaming as well (although obviously not as proficiently as the RTX 3080). It can easily handle VR gaming. The RTX 3070 Ti offers about a 5%-10% boost in performance, not a huge amount but the price isn’t that much different either. The RTX 3070 Ti offers about a 5%-10% boost in performance, not a huge amount but the price isn’t that much different either.
HP Pavilion RTX 3060 Gaming PC for $849
You won’t find an RTX 3060 equipped gaming PC for cheaper at the moment. This HP Pavilion gaming PC comes pre-installed with a 10th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. The RTX 3060 is about 20% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER and is on par with the RTX 2070. That means it handles 1080p gaming beautifully and has the chops to take on 1440p and VR gaming as well.
HP Victus RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for $925
This is far and away the lowest price we have ever seen for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3060 Ti GPU. Once you hit the product page, you’ll have to select “RTX 3060” for $250 and a “500W Power Supply) for $50. You can buy the system as is, or you can choose to add a few more choice upgrades. You certainly have leeway with this super cheap price.
HP OMEN 45L Intel Core i7 Alder Lake RTX 3080 Gaming PC for $2249.99
The new for 2022 HP OMEN 45L features a much larger chassis and three intake fans for better airflow compared to its predecessor. It also features a beefy 240mm liquid cooling system externally above the case dubbed the “Cryo Chamber”. That allows for cooling that rivals enthusiast DIY systems. You’ll be able to do just about anything with the amount of power this PC offers, thanks to the best-in-class Intel Core i7-12700K Alder Lake processor and an RTX 3080 GPU.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3060 PC for $1199.99
The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to the RTX 2060 SUPER and almost matches the RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. It will easily handle all of your games at up to 1440p. If that’s all you need, you’ll still save almost $200 compared to the price of the RTX 3070 config. It’s paired with a AMD Ryzen 7 5800 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3080 PC for $1799.99
The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5900 CPU, which is still one of the best processors out there, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It’s been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.
Dell G15 15″ RTX 3050 Ti Gaming Laptop
This is the lowest price we’ve seen so far for an RTX 3050 Ti equipped gaming laptop. At under $700 you can’t really find a mobile GPU with more power than the RTX 3050 Ti; it’s a little bit more powerful than the previous generation’s GTX 1660 Ti, plus it offers DLSS support. It should handle 1080p gaming at high settings on most games without a hitch.
PS5-Compatible 1TB SSD Storage Under $130
If you want to upgrade your PS5’s internal storage without compromising on speed, any old SSD just won’t cut it. You’ll want to pick up an PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 solid state drive with a rated 5,500MB/s read speed. All of these SSDs fill all the requirements for the PS5 and have a price tag under $130. Some of the drives may not include a built-in heatsink. A heatsink is recommended, so make sure you get a cheap $10 PS5-compatible heatsink on Amazon.
Samsung EVO Select 256GB Micro SDXC Card
Nintendo Switch compatible
This is a great card for your Nintendo Switch storage. The console only comes with 32GB of built-in storage. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for example, already takes up 14GB of storage by itself. The Samsung EVO Select is faster than your average Micro SDXC card (including the Nintendo branded ones) so it’s also a great choice for devices that can take advantage of its faster speed, like a phone or camera.
Arcade1Up Street Fighter II Big Blue Cabinet
The Arcade1Up Street Figher II cabinet is a 3:4 replica of the arcade original, making it approximately 4 feet tall. That said, a matching riser is included which raises the height by another 1 foot, giving you the option of both sitting and standing play. Also included is a light-up marquee, light-up deck protector, and matching stool. If you don’t have a buddy around to play with, you can hop onto the live WiFi (no subscription required) to play with other remote Arcade1Up players. A total of 12 games are pre-loaded.

If you’ve been looking for a game to keep you busy for dozens of hours on end, Elden Ring is your answer. Elden Ring has been critically acclaimed just about everywhere and we also gave the game a 10/10 score here at IGN. Elden Ring is a very difficult game to master and it will test your patience and resolve, just like From Software’s Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls titles.

The first QD-OLED panel on the market
After much anticipation, Dell is now offering the Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED gaming monitor for $1299.99 on its website. Although by no means inexpensive, this is the first ever QD-OLED monitor we’ve seen and thus the price point is surprisingly reasonable for the new tech. Undoubtedly due to the hype, it has been going in and out of stock throughout the day, so don’t hesitate if you’ve been waiting for this release. If you don’t put your order in now, you’ll have to wait a very, very long time to receive it; estimated ship date has already been pushed back to July.
Acer Predator 32″ Gaming Monitor
The Acer Predator XB323U is a 32″ 2560×1440 IPS gaming monitor with a 1ms response time, 170Hz refresh rate (through DisplayPort), NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility, and VESA certified HDR600. It normally retails at $800, but Amazon is offering it for $300 off.

It’s paired with an Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. It even has a Thunderbolt 4 port.
