The weekend’s almost here. Game time! We’ve found a bunch of awesome deals to put together a sweet little upgrade to your gaming rig, with a great game to put your new hardware through its paces.

First up, the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC Gaming Black Edition is on sale for $650 at B&H Photo Video. This card is sitting at $720 right now on Amazon, so you’re saving about $70.

The GTX 1080 Ti is the most powerful consumer graphics card you can buy (at least for this month), and you can expect fantastic performance. It’s the only card that can approach 60 frames per second with high graphics settings at 4K resolution in many games. At lower resolutions, the card offers screaming fast performance even with the graphics settings turned up to 11. 

To show off all that glorious performance, how about a 29-inch 2560-by-1080 ultrawide monitor? The LG 29UM59A-P is back down to $184 at BuyDig with the checkout code SAVE65, saving you big-time compared to its $400 list price. This 75Hz monitor doesn’t have Nvidia’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology (nor AMD’s FreeSync for that matter), but if you wind up upgrading to the GTX 1080 Ti we wouldn’t worry about it at this resolution. You could get by running this screen with a more modestly priced GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 580, too.

Battlefield 1 Battlefield 1

Finally, every upgraded gaming rig needs a gorgeous new game to go with it. Right now, Origin has the standard edition of Battlefield 1 on sale for $5. It was our favorite game of 2016, and still has a healthy multiplayer community, though that may dwindle when Battlefield V releases later this year. Still, for $5 it’s a steal, even if only to play it’s brilliant “War Stories” singleplay campaign.

Those are our top picks, but if you’re looking to upgrade your entire rig check out our guide to the best processors for gaming to pick out a new CPU. Speaking of, the Ryzen 7 1700 isn’t on the list but it’s selling for $180 on Newegg right now with checkout code EMCPXEV34—one of the best deals we’ve seen yet for this processor, and one heck of a deal for an 8-core, 16-thread CPU.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

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.
