In other deal news, the GeForce RTX 3080 video card has dropped to $799.99 for the first time since launch.

It's here! The long awaited LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime building kit is finally available. Right now you can buy it exclusively from the LEGO Shop. At an MSRP of $169.99 and a total brick count of 1,508 pieces, it's slightly over the $0.10/brick threshold that we'd like to qualify as a good deal, but we're willing to forgive this due to the sheer awesomeness of this set. Optimus Prime measures a respectable 14" high, 11" deep, and 8" wide. Of course, the best feature of all is the ability to transform from robot to truck. The robot also features 19 points of articulation and includes accessories like the ion blaster, Autobot Matrix of Leadership, an Energon axe, Energon cube and jetpack.

BD-1 is the newest droid added to the LEGO Star Wars lineup. This is a relatively complex build with over 1,000 pieces and a recommended age rating of 14+. Despite the fact that this is a newly released Star War branded set, the price is reasonable at just under $0.10 per brick. If you're not familiar with BD-1, this is the overwhelmingly cute droid that assists you in the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game. The droid features posable joints and a head that can be tilted back, forward, and sideways, plus a compartment for stim canister elements.

These are easily the best prices we've seen for an RTX 3080 video card since launch. At this price point, the RTX 3080 is a better value than the 3080 Ti, which costs at least $250 more at reputable vendors. The performance gap between the 3080 and 3080 Ti is about 3%, hardly noticeable. The 3080 is significantly more powerful than the previous generation's flagship RTX 2080 SUPER. This is the card you want to get if you plan to game at 4K.

This is the best PS5 video game deal to come out of this year's Sony Days of Play event so far. Ratchet and Clank is easily one of the best games on the PS5 still; it runs at a buttery smooth 60fps, even when you're taking on swarms of enemies and jumping through portals to completely different worlds without any loading times. Combined with some gorgeous 4K visuals, excellent voice acting, a wacky array of weaponry, and lots of replayability, the game is most definitely worth the $39.99 price point.

Apple AirPods (3nd Gen)Lighting Charging CaseApple AirPods (3nd Gen) $169.00

Pick up a pair of Apple AirPods 2 wireless earbuds for the lowest price we've ever seen. These AirPods include a charging case that you plug in via USB Type-C, not the "wireless" charger that supports Qi charging. You can get the AirPods 3 for $50 more, but it's not really worth it unless you intend to use the wireless MagSafe feature on the charging case.

New Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds

If you regret not picking the Airpods Pro up on Black Friday, here's your chance to get it today at the same price. This is the newest generation model with the MagSafe compatible wireless charger. The AirPods Pro is considered one of the best noise-cancelling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. The noise cancellation is considered to be even better than the Bose Quietcomfort because of the natural noise isolating design of the in-ear earbuds. If isolation and sound quality are of utmost important to you, then it's easily worth the upgrade over the AirPods 3.

2021 Hisense U8G 55" 4K Android TV

Hisense 55U8G 55" 4K QLED TVHisense 55U8G 55" 4K QLED TV 14% off $699.99$599.96

Thie Hisense U8G is a fantastic TV at a budget price. It's one of the highest end TVs that Hisense sells and its picture quality competes with the top-end LED LCD TV models from Samsung, LG, and Sony. The U8G is the 2021 model that replaces the 2020 U9G. It does a great job at displaying HDR content thanks to its high peak brightness and excellent black levels. It also makes a good gaming TV since it has a fast response time. Don't be fooled into thinking this is a bad TV because of the brand; it's probably the best 55" TV you'll find in this price range.

New 42" LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV

LG Evo C2 48" 4K OLED Gaming TVLG Evo C2 48" 4K OLED Gaming TV 40% off $1,299.99$779.00

For many of you who have been patiently waiting for the LG Evo C2 42" 4K OLED TV, now you can rejoice. The majority of the 2022 Evo C2 lineup had been released earlier in the year, but for whatever reason LG had decided to hold off on its new 42" size until now. This highly anticipated TV is finally orderable on Amazon and ships immediately. The 42" replaces LG's 48" as its smallest 4K OLED TV on the market. It performs just as well as its larger sized siblings as a gaming TV, but where it really shines is as a gaming monitor for your PC.

If money isn't an object, OLED TVs are considered the best TVs you can buy right now. Compared to traditional LED LCD TVs, they offer better image quality, deeper blacks, better contrast ratio, wider color gamut, and super fast response times. Our LG C1 review shows a perfect matchup for 4K gaming on the PS5, Xbox Series X, or your RTX 30 series equipped gaming PC since it supports 4K @ 120Hz over HDMI 2.1. The C1 is no longer the newest model, but it's hundreds of dollars cheaper than an equivalent sized C2 and image quality is similar between the two.

Just because the RTX 30 series cards are out doesn't mean one of the the fastest RTX 20 series GPUs has lost its way. The RTX 2080 SUPER might be a generation old, but it's still a very competent video card. It compares roughly to the RTX 3060 Ti and supports both DLSS and ray tracing. At this Memorial Day Sale price of $1299.99, it will be difficult to find an RTX 30 series gaming PC that can compete in the same price range. The GPU is matched with a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and a generous 1000W power supply.

The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation's best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5900 CPU, which is still one of the best processors out there, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It's been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don't worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.

This might be the lowest price we've ever seen for an Alienware x15 with an RTX 3070 GPU. The Alienware x15 is a newer, thinner redesign of the m15. In fact, it's the thinnest Alienware laptop ever.
