Intel Pentium G4560

The Pentium is back, baby.

The Kaby Lake Pentium G4560 is the new king of budget gaming CPUs. The G4560, and big brothers G4600 and G4620, offer gaming performance similar to CPUs costing hundreds more. I put together a maximum performance for value $500 build, pairing the G4560 with the powerful RX 480. This build will handle even demanding modern games at 1440p.

amazon-us-black-friday-2016

Happy Thanksgiving! Amazon has some great Black Friday deals this year. We searched through all the PC hardware deals to find the best, and they’re all listed in this post.

Expect many more deals every day between now and Cyber Monday. Of course, if you see anything here that you really like, we suggest grabbing it while you can. We do not expect the deals on these particular products to get any lower than this.

Have at it!
