Best PC Gaming Deals Of The Week

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.

UK Deals

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.

US Deals

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.

    Funny, this made me realized that RPS is part of a bigger network: link to gamer-network.net (As is jelly deals, that’s the reason).

    I mean I had in mind an advertisement agreement with Eurogamer, but I didn’t pay attention of the bigger network.

    Not that this is inherently bad, of course, they don’t seem to do too much advertorials in the concerned websites.

    Recommending to buy a 980 now is really strange. I mean really strange. Get a 1060 or AMD Duty, but no 980…

      Fury not Duty. Damn you SwiftKey!

    • Sakkura says:

      Nothing wrong with it per se, but I’m not impressed by the price. It’s 50% more than the RX 480, and the 980 isn’t that much faster. Plus it’s with a plastic blower cooler, so forget about big overclocks.

    • SaintAn says:

      980 is still better than the overpriced 1060 iirc. Though the price should be falling soon, so it would be better to wait.

  3. PenguinJim says:

    The 980 has near-identical performance to the 1060, but the 1060 has lower wattage and is a new shiny (stop me if I get too technical). The 1060 also costs £230-250 already, making a £276 980 a very odd recommendation indeed, today.

    • PenguinJim says:

      Yikes, had glanced at the SSHD and assumed it was the 2TB model! $70 for the 1TB version when the 2TB variant is frequently ~$90? ($90 at Amazon at the time of posting, for example.)

      Note that these are the 3.5″ desktop versions, so not suitable for laptops.

  4. MiniMatt says:

    Has the exchange rate started affecting UK component prices much yet or are most stockists still hedged? I think Dell & Lenovo have made adjustments, but wondering if we’re about to see another 10-15% put on components it might be worth bringing some purchases forward.

  5. Mi-24 says:

    I’d also like to point out that rainbow six siege is currently £12.79 on green man gaming if you have an account (which is free)

  6. Badfinger says:

    It looks like jellydeals links to games being sold on cdkeys.com. CDKeys is a gray market reseller at best. I know RPS is about being fair to the consumer and also fair to the developer. I assume RPS has at least a small amount of concern for people not getting games purchased on their stolen credit card. For that reason it really concerns me that this is a direct link to that site. I’d prefer if you didn’t associate with sites that advertise gray market purchasing, or if they are part of the same network as RPS, cut right to the heart of it and have Jellydeals stop posting those sites.

      Pretty certain by the wording around that link that the author of this article works for jellydeals. Whether RPS have links to them or sponsored articles by them, is really entirely up to them and doesn’t have much bearing on whether you would prefer them to be associated with them or not.

      • Badfinger says:

        It absolutely does if they’re interested in my continued readership, which is why I wrote a comment voicing my concern about that topic.

    • fish99 says:

      I assume you have some proof that cdkeys use stolen credit cards?

  7. Sakkura says:

    Both sides of the pond, eh? But no recommendations for Danish hardware deals. :(

  8. laiwm says:

    Keep having to slap my hand away from ordering an RX 480 until all the 3rd party cards get released.

  9. geldonyetich says:

    My previous plan was to upgrade my current Raid10 to four Seagate Hybrids, so that $69 deal would have been great… but having bought an NVMe laptop in the interim, I now see the errors of my ways. The next big upgrade for the computer will definitely be to a Motherboard that can push NVMe in Raid0 like my laptop can, as this pretty much annihilates HD access time.

    • Scandalon says:

      NVMe in RAID0?!?

      You realize that’s ridiculously overkill and expensive, not to mention the increased risk of total failure. (Plus, in some instances due to controller/driver/OS weirdness, performance for some workloads may actually decrease…) Like, I’m dubious you’d even be able to tell the difference in speed in actual usage – RAID0 of two of those is something you’d only do in a small subset of server situations. (Alliteration unintentional, but appreciated. ;)

      I mean, I guess if you have the extra money to burn, knock yourself out, but there’s a ton of other things you can do with it. (Or send it my way. :)

  10. Donkeyfumbler says:

    What’s the point in listing a 480 card that won’t be in stock until at least the 31st July (and that’s if you believe Ebuyer’s date)? The way prices are moving about at the moment who knows what prices the 480 and 1060 will be going for by then.

  11. Bull0 says:

    This makes me miss the RPS bargain bucket.

  12. Derpkovsky says:

    This list of deals would be fantastic if only it also included Europe or if I lived in the UK

  13. tonicer says:

    Why would anyone buy a gamepad? Except console gamers.

    • C0llic says:

      I’ve had a 360 wired pad for a number of years. It gets a fair bit of use with titles which were clearly designed with a pad in mind. If you play a lot of games, its a good investment.

    • fish99 says:

      For the games that play better on a gamepad. Same reason you play racing sims on a wheel and pedals, or fighting games on a fight stick, and FPS on mouse/keyboard. It’s about using the right controls for the game, which is one of the best things about owning a PC.

    • Scandalon says:

      Everyone, I know you want to reply to this, so do I, but please, don’t feed the trolls.
