Lots of PC parts are discounted today

Including a modest price cut on graphics cards.

Those of you daring enough to build your own gaming PC have stumbled onto a moderate amount of luck this week, as there's a range of different PC parts and accessories up for grabs with decent discounts, which is extra nice considering the absurd prices that graphics cards have reached over the past year.

Starting things off with one of the pricier pieces here, you can currently pick up a Geforce GTX 1080 8GB Windforce graphics card for £454.99. While that's still costing you a pretty penny, this is the lowest price this card has been available for since release and, terrifyingly, this exact card was being sold for £600 back in March and over £960 a year before that.

If you'd like something a little less intense, you can head to Overclockers and pick up a Geforce GTX 1060 6GB card for £259.99, a discount from its original £329.99. The Zotac version of that card is available for £249.98 to Amazon Prime members, too.

Alongside the graphics card offers, you can also pick up a NZXT Kraken all-in-one water cooler for £109.99 (down from £130) today only. Amazon is also offering an EVGA 650W power supply for £73.09.

Meanwhile, over at Box, you'll find a HP Omen 24.5-inch 144Hz free-sync monitor for £188.99, down from £249.99. The site is also offering a £20 Costa gift card when you buy selected motherboards, for some reason.

Worth noting also, you can pick up 16GB of Corsair Vengeance 3000MHz RAM for £164.99, a discount of £105 from its RRP.

Over at Jelly Deals, you can take a look at today's best deals, which include two 4K Blu-rays for £30, the Oculus Go for £184, an Amazon Echo Dot for £29.99, and more. You can also check out the brand new guide to the best Resident Evil merchandise, ready for next year's Resident Evil 2 remake.
