55" Hisense U8H 4K Quantum ULED Mini LED Google TV for $649.99, 65" for $949.99
HDMI 2.1 for 4K @ 120Hz
Thie Hisense U8H is a 2022 TV that replaces the U8G. This is a fantastic TV at a budget price. It's one of the higher end TVs that Hisense sells and its picture quality competes with the top-end LED LCD TV models from Samsung, LG, and Sony. The biggest upgrade from last year's model is the Mini-LED QLED panel, which allows for better control of black levels and thus a higher contrast ratio. It has two HDMI 2.1 ports and a native 120Hz panel so it can push 4K @ 120Hz with PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles, as well as VRR and ALLM. It does a great job at displaying HDR content thanks to its high peak brightness and excellent black levels.

$300 Off the New 48" LG UltraGear 48GP900-B 4K HDR OLED Gaming Monitor, Now $1197.49
For those of you who love LG OLED TVs (for good reason) but don't like the idea of using a TV for a computer monitor, there's now an answer. LG has released its first UltraGear OLED gaming monitor. At first glance, the 48GP900 with its 48" LG WOLED 10-bit color HDR display seems very similar to the 48" LG C1 OLED TV. The panel is very similar, but there are some key differences. Instead of the semi glossy coating found on the OLED TV, the 48GP900 features an anti-glare low reflective coating that is undoubtedly a better fit for close up monitor usage. It also has DisplayPort connectivity and lacks the built-in Smart TV interface. It does carry over the HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K @ 120Hz compatiblity for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners, as well as VRR and G-SYNC support, but the 120Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to 138Hz when used as a PC monitor.

Dell has the best deal on the Arcade1Up The Simpsons arcade cabinet; save $300 of the bundle that includes the riser, light up marquee, and matching themed stool.

HP is offering an HP OMEN RTX 3070 gaming PC for only $1286.99 after a 10% off code "10GAMER2022". This is currently the best price we can find for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an Intel Core i7 Alder Lake CPU and GeForce RTX 3070 GPU. The Alder Lake CPU is Intel's newest gen processor, and it is significantly more powerful than any of Intel's previous chips. It's also more powerful than AMD's latest Ryzen 7 6000 series CPUs.
HP Pavilion RTX 3060 Gaming PC for $649
You won't find an RTX 3060 equipped gaming PC for cheaper at the moment. This HP Pavilion gaming PC comes pre-installed with a 10th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. The RTX 3060 is about 20% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER and is on par with the RTX 2070. That means it handles 1080p gaming beautifully and has the chops to take on 1440p and VR gaming as well.
ASUS TUF Dash 15" Intel Core i7 Alder Lake RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop for $999.99
This was one of the most popular gaming laptop deals during Amazon Prime Day, and it's back for a cheaper price!

It features an RTX 3060 GPU with 105W max TGP and the newest generation Intel Core i7-12650H Alder Lake processor.

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 GPU for $739.99
The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 GPU is the least expensive RTX 3080 variant on Amazon right now at a solid price of $739.99. The RTX 3080 really doesn't need any introduction. This is the de facto card to get if you plan to run current generation games at 4K, since it's up to 50% faster than the previous generation RTX 2080 SUPER and doesn't command the exorbitant price of the RTX 3080 Ti or RTX 3090 (both of which are a mere 3%-5% faster in real world performance). It has an HDMI 2.1 port for passing through 4K @ 120Hz, which it has the power to drive even with resource hungry games like Elden Ring.
Apple iPad 10.2" 64GB for $279
This is the lowest price we've seen for the newest Apple iPad (it was $299 on Amazon Prime Day). Apple's latest 10.2" iPad is a great option for school, work, or simply relaxing with your favorite movie, book, or streaming service. It features the new Apple A13 Bionic chip for fast CPU and GPU performance to tackle just about anything, and the large 10.2-inch Retina display ensures everything is bright and crisp during use. iPad also features both a front-facing camera for voice chat, and rear camera for taking photos and videos.

Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 GPU for $999.99
Woot has the Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 GPU for only $999.99. This is an outstanding price for one of the most powerful video cards available. On Amazon, the least expensive RTX 3090 GPU is over $1300. Although the RTX 3090 is indeed a best-in-class gaming card (it's as much as 20% more powerful than the RTX 3080 at 4K resolution), it's actually not really intended for gamers. The RTX 3090 is the workstation GPU of choice not because of its processing power (which it has in spades), but because of the massive 24GB of GDDR6X RAM.

40% Off HBO Max When You Prepay For a Year
Game of Thrones' House of the Dragon Premieres August 21
Pay for 12 months of HBO Max and get 40% off your order total. HBO Max is normally $9.99/month ($119.88/yr) for the ad-supported plan and $14.99/month ($179.88/yr) for the ad-free plan. Instead you'd be paying $69.99 for 1 year of the ad-supported plan or $104.99 for 1 year of the ad-free plan. That's technically a savings of 41.6%.
This is the perfect time to sign up for HBO Max. The highly anticipated Game of Thrones' House of the Dragon premiered exclusively on HBO Max starting August 21. Set 200 years before the events of the original Game of Thrones TV series, House of the Dragon covers the fall of House Targaryen. In addition to Game of Thrones, HBO Max is host to the entire collection of DC movies (including The Batman), Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings and movies like Dune, King Richard, Free Guy, and much, much more.
Wingspan Board Game for $39.99
Wingspan is an incredibly good board game. So good in fact that we deemed it the best board game of 2019. Improbably enough, the year's hottest game is one about keeping birds in a nature reserve. But the wide appeal of the theme, lovely art and simple rules meant lots of players got to enjoy the fiendish engine-building game beneath. A choice of a mere four actions blossoms into an excruciating balance between adding birds, feeding them and scoring points. Yet tricky as it is, the pace of play leaves you itching for another try to evolve your strategies, while 170 bird cards ensure every game is different. The board game is worth it even at the $65 retail price, but today it's nearly 40% off.
Newest Apple TV 4K 32GB and 64GB Both on Sale
