The phenomenal 32-inch 4K 240Hz Alienware QD-OLED is down to £850 at Dell UK
The phenomenal 32-inch 4K 240Hz Alienware QD-OLED is down to £850 at Dell UK For the past few months, I've been testing the Dell Alienware AW3225QF QD-OLED. This is pretty much the best gaming monitor you can get, with an expansive 32-inch 4K panel running at 240Hz. The third-generation curved QD-OLED panel at the heart of this monitor provides perfect contrast, near-instant pixel response times and excellent HDR performance, but you're often paying upwards of £1000 to get a monitor that uses it. Thankfully, Dell's pricing in the UK is a bit more reasonable, and today you can pick up this model for under £850 thanks to the discount code BFiJ5 . Read more Deals FeedJul 24
My boss' favourite massive PC case has received a price cut from Tech Next Day
My boss' favourite massive PC case has received a price cut from Tech Next Day If the deal posted yesterday on the popular Corsair 4000D Airflow case isn't for you, and you'd prefer a bigger PC case, boy do I have the dealio for you. The full tower 7000D is much the same as the 4000D and 5000D, only larger and with even better aesthetics, plus it's also the case of choice for the man who tells me what to do - Will Judd. From Tech Next Day, it's £220 in black, which provides a handy £50 saving on its price elsewhere. The first thing you'll notice about the 7000D is its sheer size. As opposed to being a mid-tower case like most conventional PC cases, this is a full tower choice that's two feet tall and comes with an internal volume of 80 litres. With this in mind, you'll be able to fit even an oversized E-ATX motherboard in here, as well as having plenty of room for especially long GPUs up to 450mm in length, and CPU air coolers with lofty ambitions with heights of up to 190mm. You can also fit up to 12 fans in the 7000D on three sides, while there is also ample support for radiators. To be precise, you can get room for three 360mm radiators simultaneously, or a pair of 420mm radiators at the same time. For helping to cool your system out of the box, Corsair bundles three 140mm PWM case fans inside the 7000D, while with this being the Airflow model, it means the glass panels are swapped out with mesh to allow for more air to be pulled through your case where it's needed. In addition, this case also has some excellent cable management solutions with lots of points for tying them down, as well as with 30mm of space behind the motherboard on a hinged door. You also get the benefit of a solid selection of I/O that beats a lot of other premium PC cases. The big thing here is the number of USB-A ports. The 7000D has four of them, while a lot of other cases have only two. Combined with this, you also get a USB-C port and a headphone jack- neat. Read more Deals FeedJul 23

Save £75 on the 4TB Crucial P3 Plus SSD from Scan Computers
Save £75 on the 4TB Crucial P3 Plus SSD from Scan Computers Crucial's P3 Plus has oftentimes been a drive I've recommended simply due to its excellent price to performance ratio. It's a great mid-range PCIe 4.0 option with good speeds, and in this 4TB size, a larger capacity. From Scan Computers, it's received a handy price cut to bring it down to the best price we've seen it at for months - £175 - down from £250. The read and write speeds on offer of of 5000MB/s and 4200MB/s respectively means it's going to be a handy upgrade to any older solid state drives you have in your system, as well as a game-changing upgrade over any older mechanical hard drives that you may happen to still be using in your PC. What's more, the P3 Plus' random read and writes of 680K and 850K IOPS means that it offers especially quick load times in games, too, if you wanted to run your Steam library from it, for instance. That's certainly possible, and those speeds help the P3 Plus to be one of the speedier options out there, even if they are a little bit below the absolute quickest and best gaming SSDs we've tested. Four terabytes of capacity gives you oodles of space for using the P3 Plus as a boot drive, as well as a storage drive for all sorts of important local files, such as media, documents and a burgeoning Steam library, especially with some AAA games pushing triple figures in terms of their install size. When putting this into a PC, you'll just have to be sure you've got a motherboard that supports PCIe 4.0 - to save you the hassle, that's anything from the last four or five years now - and you should be golden.

Logitech's MX Anywhere 2S has plummeted to its lowest price ever at Amazon
Logitech's MX Anywhere 2S has plummeted to its lowest price ever at Amazon Logitech's MX line of mice have been around for an awful long time now, and it makes sense therefore that their reputation for being reliable and functional choices virtually precedes them. The smaller MX Anywhere series are fantastic travel mice that pack a punch with their features and performance, While the MX Anywhere 2S may be a couple of generations old at this point, it remains a solid all-rounder for most people with a comfortable frame, nippy sensor and decent battery life. From Amazon today, it's down to the lowest price we've ever seen it at, being just £30 at the big online retailer. This may well be a bit of an older model, having been superseded by both the -3 and -3S models in recent years, but it remains a comfortable and functional choice for use in offices. That goes for its smaller stature and patterned sides for added flair and comfort. In addition, the fact that this Anywhere 2S is smaller than the bigger MX Master series makes it a better mouse for taking on your travels, as it's easy to chuck into a bag. Much like the bigger MX Master 2S, this Anywhere 2S features a 4000 DPI sensor, making it a nippy choice for office duties. With the sensor's Darkfield tracking, it's also able to work on surfaces including glass, which even now is a rarity for optical sensors. Connectivity is taken care of wither either Logitech's bundled 2.4GHz USB receiver or over Bluetooth, and it can also work on up to three devices at once. Pairing and switching between them should be easy too, with the dedicated switch on the underside of the chassis. Read more Deals FeedJul 23
This 27-inch Fast IPS 1440p Asus ROG XG27ACS is a steal for $199 at Amazon USA
This 27-inch Fast IPS 1440p Asus ROG XG27ACS is a steal for $199 at Amazon USA The Asus ROG Strix XG27ACS is one of the brand's most recent releases, offering a fantastic blend of specs with a 27-inch Fast IPS panel with a 1440p resolution and 180Hz refresh rate, as well as a solid port selection including USB-C and a useful stand. For whatever reason though, Amazon has slashed the price of it by $101 in the USA to bring it down to $199 - that's an absolute steal. If you click the link above, and it shows the price as $300, then you'll have to do a little bit of digging to find it at $199. Simply scroll down to where it says 'Other Sellers on Amazon', and click the box. Part of the way down that list will be an option for $199, where the monitor is shipped and sold by - that's the one we want. From there, you can add it to your basket. The XG27ACS offers an ideal blend of screen size and resolution, pushing a 1440p resolution across a 27-inch panel. We've recommended this in the past because you're getting a mid-range screen size that works well for both competitive and cinematic titles, as well as a resolution that's a lot easier to drive than 4K without sacrificing a lot of detail. You're also getting the benefit of a Fast IPS panel too, which combines the benefits of fantastic colours and viewing angles with excellent pixel-response times for an overall nippy experience.

This AsRock Challenger Intel Arc A770 can be yours for $270 from Newegg
This AsRock Challenger Intel Arc A770 can be yours for $270 from Newegg Intel's Arc GPUs were a pleasant surprise when they first launched a couple of years ago, taking it to Nvidia and AMD with some more than competent results in a more affordable price category. The 16GB Arc A770 was perhaps the pick of the bunch with more than reasonable results in both 1080p and 1440p workloads, especially thanks to its 16GB of VRAM. Currently, Newegg has this AsRock Challenger variant from Newegg for $270, which is a pretty solid reduction, and you also get the benefit of a free game, too. With regards to the free game, Intel is offering a choice of four games for you to get your hands on, although naturally you can only choose one. Your options are as follows - Assassin's Creed Mirage, Death Stranding Director's Cut, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Ecto Edition, The Riftbreaker - that's quite a strong selection. Newegg reckons it's worth around $45 for your chosen title, and that isn't to be sniffed at. The A770 16GB proved to be a fantastic performer for 1080p gaming, with our original review noting performance between the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti, meaning Intel's budget oriented GPU is certainly in good company. What's more, it also pulled out a significant lead in RT titles over AMD's own affordable choice, the RX 6600 XT. If we're talking about raw numbers, the A770 in the likes of Doom Eternal was able to pull ahead of the 3060 with a result of 204fps against the 3060's 168fps, while it tied in Shadow of The Tomb Raider with a result of 128fps. Intel's drivers have improved significantly since release too - we've even seen a new driver release in a selection of DirectX 11 titles by an average of 19 percent - so you may find even better results in your own testing.

Corsair's popular 4000D Airflow PC case can be yours for £74 from Amazon
Corsair's popular 4000D Airflow PC case can be yours for £74 from Amazon Okay, it may not be as good as the price we saw when putting together a series of deals for the Prime Day PC last week, but the fact remains that getting Corsair's 4000D Airflow mid-tower PC case for £74 in either white or black from the big online retailer is worth shouting about. It's been around for the last few years as one of the most popular PC cases around being easy to build in while also offering lots of airflow and potential for adding a wide range of components of shapes and sizes. The 4000D Airflow offers a lot of potential for fan placement, with room for up to six 120mm fans, well as room for radiators, with a 360mm AIO in the front and a 280mm AIO in the top. That's a lot of potential for cooling. What's also quite interesting here is that Corsair bundles a pair of fans inside the case which are designed to move airflow into channels towards key components such as your processor and graphics card, improving temperatures and therefore potentially performance. In addition, cable management should be a doddle with lots of tie points and velcro included inside the case, and Corsair also offers a reasonable amount of front I/O with the 4000D Airflow for quick connectivity. You get a headphone jack, USB-C and USB-A port, as well as that all-important power button for, well, turning your PC on. The 4000D Airflow can also fit a pair of SSDs and a pair of HDDs inside for more storage, while a tempered glass side panel allows you to show off your build with ease. Read more Deals FeedJul 22
AMD's excellent value Ryzen 5 5600X has dropped to £110 from Ebuyer
AMD's excellent value Ryzen 5 5600X has dropped to £110 from Ebuyer AMD'S Ryzen 5 5600X is the slightly older and faster brother to our pick of the best budget AMD gaming CPU , the 5600, coming with a slightly higher clock speed and generally excellent performance for a modest outlay in 2024. From Ebuyer, you can grab a 5600X in more basic 'tray' packaging with a handy discount, with the chip coming down in price to £110 - a handy saving of £22 on its previous list price. Much like a deal I covered on AMD's newer 7800X3D a few weeks ago, this 5600X isn't technically a retail chip. This is instead a tray CPU, which essentially means you're just getting the chip itself in basic packaging, foregoing the stock cooler that usually comes in the box. For reference, a 5600X in full retail packaging is between £125 and £135 elsewhere, so you are saving a little bit by going for this option. It is otherwise a brand new processor with no other funny business. With the 5600X, you're getting a capable 6 core and 12 thread processor that should be more than up to the task of both general computing, as well as more intensive workloads such as gaming and content creation. It's got a boost clock of up to 4.7GHz, and can perform well even with slightly slower DDR4 RAM than the performance/price sweet spot of 3200MT/s without much of a performance penalty.

Grab the solid Crucial MX500 2TB SATA SSD for £100 from Currys
Grab the solid Crucial MX500 2TB SATA SSD for £100 from Currys It's a well-established fact that SATA SSDs regularly offer some of the best bang for the buck performance if you're looking to upgrade from an older hard drive to a much more reliable and speedier storage solution, especially if you're changing around storage in a PC that lacks NVMe support. From Currys at the moment, one of the better SATA drives out there, the ever-reliable Crucial MX500 in 2TB form, is down to £100, which is a decent price. The big thing about the MX500 against a lot of other SSDs at this price point, including Crucial's own remarkably similar BX500, is that it features a DRAM cache. In short, this means the drive offers better random performance and is generally more reliable, making it suitable for an OS install as much as just for general storage. This means the MX500 is a better bet if you're going to be using it as a boot drive in an older system that may only have a mechanical hard drive inside. In terms of speeds, Crucial rates the MX500 as offering sequential read and writes of up to 560MB/s and 510MB/s, respectively. They may not be up there with some of the best NVMe drives we've seen, but it actually maxes out the SATA III interface the MX500 runs on. The real comparison here is to made with more typical mechanical hard drives, which are around six or so times slower than SATA III-capable drives like this MX500, meaning this is going to be a lot snappier when fetching files, booting your OS, or loading up games, for instance. I've replaced the hard drives of aging systems with SATA SSDs like the MX500 before, and it certainly makes a big difference in boot times. Read more Deals FeedJul 19
