Newegg Black Friday 2017 Early Deals For PC Hardware Are Now Live

The Black Friday pregame.

5 Comments

Newegg, one of the most popular PC hardware vendors for all things tech, is having a pre-Black Friday sale going on right now. They're well-known for deals on all things tech and they're rolling out plenty of them in advance of the consumerist holiday. Everything on Newegg ships out since there is no brick-and-mortar store, so shopping is made easy. Here, we've rounded up some standout deals for hard drives, solid-state drives, motherboards, monitors, memory, and peripherals. [Update: Many of these deals have now expired, but luckily, even more have replaced them. You can get the full rundown in our roundup on Newegg's Black Friday 2017 sale.]

To kick things off, we looked at memory prices. A stick of 8GB Patriot Viper Elite DDR4-2133 RAM is $73, 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-2666 RAM is currently $80, while 16GB (2x8GB) Team Elite Plus DDR4-2400 RAM is going for $130. If you're on an older platform and still use DDR3 memory, you can snag 16GB (2x8GB) Team Dark DDR3-1600 RAM for $100 or 16GB (2x8GB) G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR-1333 for $120. For you fancy folk out there, the 16GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB DDR4-3200 RAM kit is on sale for $175. Corsair RAM is 18% off with the promo code CORSAIR8 as well.

Those looking at AMD's Ryzen platform (or building a compact PC) should consider the Gigabyte GA-AB350M Micro ATX for $70 or the Biostar X370GTN Mini ITX for $85, since they'll support overclocking for all Ryzen CPUs.
