When new product stock is so barren that a company has to dig through its archives to go back and play the hits, you know things are dire. But when that same product can be purchased as part of another product for the same price as the first product on its own, it starts to raise some serious questions. Concerns around Nvidia’s ongoing GPU scarcity freakout is, at least to some extent, legitimate. Building chip hardware on new process tech is expensive, and cryptocoin mining has breathed new life into the company’s consumer market, driving up the cost of the latest RTX 3070 to anywhere between $1,000 and $1,400 on eBay.

That said, for the chronically impatient, you could always buy a pre-build. After years spent toiling away on upgrades and RMAs, all while working 10- to 12-hour days, I had to cut out either work or PC building to afford the time to actually play games. So I chose the one that didn’t pay my bills. While my own pre-built PC is getting a bit long in the tooth now, the HP Omen 25L packs an Intel Core i5 processor, 16GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, 512GB of NVMe SSD storage, and a Wi-Fi 6 card into one 6.5″ x 15.5″ x 17″ box for less than the aforementioned RTX 2070 graphics card-only price ceiling you’ll find from resellers online. If you were planning to build from scratch anyway, here’s an alternative that will save you money while sparing you some extra work as well.

All you have to do is configure the desktop on this page like so, and enter the promo code 10GAMER2021 for the discount to appear:

  • Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64 (default)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 (default)
  • Memory: HyperX 16GB DDR4-2666 XMP SDRAM (2 x 8 GB)
  • Storage: WD Black 512GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6
  • Networking: Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX 201 (2×2) and Bluetooth 5 combo (default)

Note that you can always upgrade individual components later, either by yourself or with the help of a friend you should most definitely pay or buy beer for their services.

There’s a huge Microsoft sale happening at Best Buy this weekend, so you’re going to see a lot of deals on Xbox games and accessories today. Hold on to your butts. Let’s kick things off right: you can get up to 50% off on Microsoft’s biggest first-party Xbox hits right now.

If you need a tablet that does it all, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 is a stellar option. This versatile device delivers a huge 12.3” touchscreen for use as a tablet, plus you can flip out the kickstand and snap on the included Type Cover with a full keyboard to turn it into a laptop (and add a mouse if you please). Add a Surface Pen and you can also sketch and annotate at will.

As part of a huge three-day Microsoft sale, Best Buy is currently offering as much as $460 off various Surface Pro 7 configurations bundled with the Type Cover. The base model with an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD is just $579 right now. Need more? Grab one with a Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD for $900.

Thanks to quarantine, lots of us have picked up new hobbies. For me, it’s been leaning into my doodling, catching up on my game queue, and honing my green thumb. For others, it’s been photography. A decent smartphone will do the trick, but when you’re ready to step things up, you’ll want a good mirrorless camera.

The Sony a7 III, ranked tops overall in our roundup of the best digital cameras, is $300 off today at Amazon. At $1,698 even with that discount, you’re paying a hefty price, but for your money you’re getting a 24.2MP sensor, impressive autofocus, reliable battery life, and a wide array of attachable lenses to suit whatever your needs may be.

If you own a home, it’s inevitable that you’ll encounter messes that can’t be easily picked up with a broom, common household vacuum, or even a mass of towels. That’s where a wet-dry shop vac comes in handy, providing one large-capacity, rolling tool that can contend with things like basement flooding, light construction work, garage cleaning, and more.

Right now, Tacklife’s 6-gallon wet dry shop vac is just $61 at Amazon when you clip the coupon on the page and enter promo code 20DQV25P at checkout. With a big bin, 17-foot cord, and 5-foot hose range, you won’t have to stop and start a bunch when tackling big messes. It’s 32% off the list price right now and this deal is only slated to last through the end of today!

Whether real or faux, a luscious lash can enhance an already stunning look. Take the time today to give your lashes a little extra TLC and an extra flutter. Save up to 50% off select products to honor National Lash Day. These deals expire on February 21.

Traditional glue-on lashes are a bit of a hassle to get on at first. There’s a learning curve, and it needs to be combined with a bit of patience. But once you get it down, you’ll be glad you mastered this skill. Lilly Lashes are one of my favorite brands, and the pair I have in my collection is the Lite Faux Mink False Lashes Miami. They’re 30% off in this sale, and there’s a reason they are the company’s #1 seller. Any lash glue can work with these and I prefer the Kiss brand.

If you think you need a little help getting a flirty pair of lashes on magnetic ones might be an avenue to explore. Glamnetic’s Vixen Magnetic Lashes are my favorites of their line and made life in the application so much easier. These are elegant and create a bit of a cat-eye shape, so if you’re into a vintage vibe, you’ll love them too. They’re lightweight, soft, and made for hours of wear. You will also need to purchase the liner to get these baddies on. But they’re durable and will last a very long time if you clean and store them properly.

I received a discovery bundle from Pacifica and was pleasantly surprised by their makeup’s longevity and quality. Specifically the Stellar Gaze Mascara, which has earned a place in my travel bag. The volume one stroke added was pretty amazing and got a little extra curl at the ends. And because Pacifica is all about vegan and clean beauty, the ingredients are good for you too. This particular formula has coconut oil and vitamin B, so your lashes don’t do that clumpy dried-out thing that happens with lesser mascara.

Free shipping on orders over $35. This sale will run until Sunday.

Things are getting betting, and you’re doing a great job living through a global pandemic. But if we take precautions for just a little longer, things could really turn around. By now, we’ve all amassed an arsenal of PPE, but a refresher on all the essentials is not a bad idea. This Personal Protective Equipment Bundle is a great pack to revamp what you already have or replace what you’ve been relying on the last few months.

Everything we were scouring for last spring is now bundled in this convenient pack. Ten KN95 5-layer face masks are the number one item still absolutely needed; everything else is a bonus. If you’re still doing your best not to touch any surfaces, there are two steliron hygiene keys to keep your hands away from icky surfaces. If you don’t have a touchless soap dispenser, this is a nice addition to any home, even without the panic and abundance of current germs. To make sure you’re keeping it clean on the go, there are also two Heidi & Oak hand sanitizer pouches to clip on purses or bags. The Mundi purifier wristlet is a nice inclusion as it sterilizes any contents within with UVC light. Whatever you can get in there, 99.9% of germs and bacteria will be zapped away. My favorite in the bundle is the Mophie mini 3000mAh power bank, of which I have a few and never leave my house without. All this together would run around $100, so this, by all accounts, is a bit of a steal.

If you’ve read a few of our pieces on Meh before and you like what you’ve seen, they offer a $5 monthly fee to get free shipping on all of your orders, no matter how many. Otherwise, it’s a flat rate of $8.

With snow once again blanketing large parts of the country it’s important to remember our fur pals need protection. Kong’s insulated dog parkas are all 60% off today and help your pooch keep cozy and dry.

We wear coats in the rain, snow, and chilly temperatures, so why shouldn’t they? Kong is known for quality and durable toys; they’ve taken those standards and designed doggy coats to protect our pups in all elements. The thermal lining provides extra warmth, and the water-resistant nylon keeps them from getting soaked. We can all agree nothing is worse than a wet dog. It only comes in this red hue, but this deal is so good you might have to be ok with that. But hey, at least it’s a power color. There’s easy D-ring access, so connecting your leash won’t be a problem. The hood is packable so if your doggo isn’t fond of ear coverings you can hide it away. It’s available in all sizes, from itty bitty to chonky. No matter which size, each fits snuggly and is comfortable.

Free shipping on all orders over $49.

Wireless charging hasn’t been limited to pricey add-ons for a few years now, and there’s no shortage of options. I’m been testing chargers from Anker and Belkin, both of which are pretty solid, but there’s other options, too. ESR’s chargers may not have the name recognition that Anker and Belkin do, but if you’re in need of a good discount, you can get a couple of their MagSafe chargers for up to 40% off.

The company’s HaloLock wireless charger, which you can plop on your desk for quick charging, is down from $25 to $15 when you use an on-page coupon, plus the code 20OFFWIRE at checkout. If you need a charger for the car, you can get the company’s dashboard charger (regularly $40) for $27 using an on-page coupon and the code 20OFFWIRE at checkout.
