No matter where you’re from or what you’re into, it’s always nice to pick up something resembling a bargain every now and then. That’s where I come in. Over at Jelly Deals, I’ve been rounding up the best prices, deals and offers on games and hardware as they arrive each day. I check for UK and US deals, so I’ve got both sides of the pond covered as best I can. I also write a lot of puns, as the name of the site may have already suggested. The worse the pun, the better, really.
So, with any luck, I’ll be here each week to give you a round-up of what’s available out there on the big wild west of the internet. Whether it’s a cheap game deal, a discount on some PC hardware or something that’s just really worth knowing about. Let’s take a look at what’s been available this week.
Kicking things off, we’ve got this AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB Graphics Card available at Ebuyer as a pre-order for £182.99. This is probably the cheapest way you can pick up a VR-capable card anytime soon. This model in particular is the 4GB version (GDDR5 RAM, if you were wondering), with a GPU clock of 1266MHz. If you’re looking to try your hand at VR with a new or upgraded PC build, this one is worth a look.
Over on the GeForce side of things, there is this GTX 980 available for £275.99 over at Overclockers. I know, I know, the 1080, 1070 and now the 1060 are available. But if you’re looking to build something on a budget, the 980 is still a solid card that will keep your performance high for a while still. Especially if you’re only looking to run games at 1080p / 60FPS. This particular OC model features a core clock of 1152MHz which can be boosted up to 1252MHz. It works very nicely in SLI as well. And over £40 off ain’t bad.
If you’ve been holding off on picking up a copy of Fallout 4, this fancy steelbook version of the game is available on PC for £19.99 over at GAME. Considering the game itself is currently £39.99 on Steam, this boxed version is a much cheaper way to pick up a copy. Plus you’ll get some postcards and the aforementioned fancy steelbook case as well. Which is nice, I suppose, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Over to the US deals now, for those of you who spend money as dollars.
If you’re thinking about building a new PC or upgrading your existing setup, this Cooler Master Hyper 212 CPU cooler is worth a look. NewEgg currently has this priced up at $29.99, but with a $10 rebate available, making the overall cost just $19.99. Not bad for a Cooler Master CPU fan at all.
XBox One controllers are available for PC now, but the 360 pad is still a solid, trustworthy and importantly cheaper option. This wireless version is available on eBay right now for $24.99. To use it wirelessly, you’ll need the Microsoft dongle thingy, which you can pick up fairly cheap these days.
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for storage, you can pick up this 1TB hybrid SSHD for $69.99. That’s down from an original price of $109.99. Hybrid drives won’t quite give you the speed of a full SSD but they’re a nice in-between – bridging the gap between size and speed. For 70 bucks, you’ll get a drive with a lot of space that performs much better than an old-style HDD. Plus you’ll save $40.
Okay! That’s it for both UK and US deals this week. Maybe one of the above caught your eye, maybe not. Either way, I’m constantly checking for the best prices and deals over at www.jelly.deals if you fancy seeing what we’ve found out there. We’re also on Facebook and Twitter.
