Nearly half of all touchscreen monitors shipped last year donned an Acer label
Time and again, we see examples of where lower priced gadgets rule the day. We saw it when Amazon stormed the Android tablet market with its smaller size, lower cost Kindle Fire (compared to what was available at the time), and we're seeing it again in the monitor market.

It can be argued that two of the most overlooked components in a PC build are the power supply and monitor. They're not as glamorous as a gnarly graphics card or unlocked processor, but both are critical to the computing experience -- a cheap PSU is asking for disaster, and why skimp on a monitor when you'll be staring at it every time you use your PC? If you're in need of one or the other, you've come to the right place, as today's deals are nothing but PSUs and panels. It starts with today's top deal for a Corsair 1000W RM Series Modular Power Supply for $160 with free shipping (normally $180 - use coupon code: [EMCPCHH42]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate).
