If your PC or Nintendo Switch is ready for an upgrade, Amazon’s Gold Box deals on Monday bring deep discounts on two pieces of essential hardware: graphics cards and microSD cards.
The GPUs discounted in Monday’s sale are refurbished GTX 1070 Ti and GTX 1080 Ti models. They come from the last generation of Nvidia graphics cards that was replaced last year by the RTX series. Nvidia now supports real-time ray tracing on these models, making them a solid choice for PC gaming.
These refurbished models do include a 90-day warranty, and since Nvidia isn’t manufacturing these models anymore, this is probably the last chance to pick up a protected GTX card at a deep discount.
On the storage side of things, a 200 GB microSD card is on sale for $24. Amazon discounts microSD cards fairly frequently, and they keep getting cheaper every time. The last time we saw a price drop on this card it went down to $25; when I bought mine last year, it was $85.
Amazon is offering a few more PC discounts in its deal of the day, including 20 percent off an Alienware M15 laptop and 30 percent off a 3 TB external hard drive for the Xbox One. The Gold Box deals end at 3 a.m. ET on Tuesday, June 25. Check them all out at Amazon’s daily deals page.
