EVGA's GeForce GTX 1060 is back down to $250 just in time for the Steam Summer Sale

Let the games begin

It’s almost July and the summer gaming fun is starting with gear and games hitting some awesome prices—or at least awesome for our current GPU-impoverished gaming world. Right now, at Amazon you can get an EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 for $250.

Savvy shoppers will know that $250 is the original MSRP of the GeForce GTX 1060. We’re just at the tail end of the great graphics card crisis, which means that when graphics cards hit their original MSRP, it’s considered a sale. Most GTX 1060’s are selling around $280 or $290 right now.

This graphics card is an awesome choice for “no compromises 1080p gaming performance,” as we said in our GTX 1060 review. It’s also good for 1440p gaming, but you will need to step up to a more powerful graphics card if you want to play at 4K resolution. 

The basic specs for this card include 6GB of GDDR5 memory, a base clock of 1506 MHz and a boost of 1708 MHz. It’s also got EVGA’s ACX 3.0 cooling technology, which you’ll need since this is the single-fan version.

Once you’ve got your graphics card order wrapped up grab some new games to go with it. Steam’s annual Summer Sale just started, and the Humble Store will give you Shadowrun Returns for free until Saturday.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
