Adding RAM to your PC is like giving your system an energy drink, at least in some cases. Where it was once sluggish -- like content creation or even just booting into Windows if you skimped at the outset -- RAM can liven your PC right up. How much you should run with depends on your setup and what you use your PC for -- if you're a power user or perform RAM heavy tasks, then take a gander at today's top deal for a 16GB kit (2x8GB) of G.Skill Sniper Series DDR3-1866 Memory for $149 with free shipping (normally $165 - use coupon code: [EMCPAHD33]). It's fast, sports relatively tight timings, and offers lot of capacity for RAM hungry applications.

Have you ever thought about all the wonderful things can do with a discrete graphics card? The possibilities are near-endless. Use one as a paperweight, play catch, send notes to coworkers (just shove a note between the fan blades and toss the card to the appropriate cubicle), defend yourself from thieves by using a card as a blunt object, and so much more! If any of these appeal to you, or if you simply want play high-end games with the eye candy cranked up, then check out today's top deal for an Asus GeForce GTX 780 Ti Graphics Card for $456 with free shipping (normally $480 - use coupon code: [EMCPAHD82]; $30 mail-in-rebate available). Custom cooled and overclocked, this card is cooler, quieter, and faster than Nvidia's reference design. To sweeten the deal, Nvidia is throwing in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for free.

Whoa there, playa, before you add a 5K monitor to your holiday wish list, consider if you have the hardware to game on such a high resolution. If you do, carry on with your bad self. And if not?

That said, check out today's top deal for an Asus VS Series 23.6-inch LED Widescreen Monitor for $120 with free shipping (normally $140 - use coupon code: [EMCPAHE39]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate).

If you take a knife to a gun fight, you're setting yourself up for pain, agony, and disappointment. Incidentally, the same is true if you bring integrated graphics to the virtual battlefield.

Little Johnny's in the corner crying his poor heart out because you missed his recital when you promised you'd be there. And the reason you missed his recital is because you got stuck behind a train on the way home from work. And the reason you got stuck behind a train is because you had to work late. Had you upgraded to a solid state drive when your hard drive started making those clicking noises a month ago, you wouldn't have been stuck at work waiting extra long for programs to load and dealing with corrupt files. Here's the good news. Little Johnny is, well, little and will have plenty more events for you to attend. Prepare now by getting rid of that dying hard drive and checking out today's top deal for a Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 480GB SSD for $165 with free shipping (normally ($190 - use coupon code: [EMCPAHG24]).

The MHz/GHz race is pretty much over, hence why none of us own 10GHz processors at this point. In lieu of faster clockspeeds, chip makers have taken to architectural tweaks and piling on more cores. Enter Haswell-E, the latest and greatest consumer-side CPU series Intel has to offer. Looking to make the jump? Then check out today's top deal for an Intel Core i7 5820K Haswell-E CPU for $375 with free shipping (normally $390 - use coupon code: [EMCPAHG33]). This is a 6-core (12 threads) chip clocked at 3.3GHz with 15MB of L3 cache. Bear in mind it's the only Haswell-E chip (so far) to have 28 PCIe 3.0 lanes instead of 40, though that's still a heck of a lot more than Haswell, which has 16. For more on Intel's newest architecture, see our Haswell-E review.

It's be nice if we could animate our PCs by singing "Higher and Higher" -- hey, it worked for the Statue of Liberty in Ghostbusters II. Unfortunately, we're still bound by the laws of physics of science, and therefore a power supply is the go-to solution. Need a new one? Have a look at today's top deal for a Corsair HX Series 750W PSU for $90 with free shipping (normally $130 - use coupon code: [EMCPAWB42]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate).

Billy went and spent all his savings on a 4K monitor. He then had to work overtime to pay for a pair of graphics cards that could game at the resolution, only to discover he'd need a beefier power supply too. Before he knew, poor Billy was in debt, his girlfriend left him, and even his dog Rover rebelled by refusing to bring him his slippers in the morning. But he got a 4K monitor! Which was cool, except that Dell came out with a 5K panel, so there went his bragging rights. All that said, if you can comfortably afford a 4K monitor and understand the pros and cons, then have it. If not, why not treat yourself to an affordable 1080p panel? We happen to know of one -- check out today's top deal for an Asus VE247H 23.6-inch LED Monitor for $120 with free shipping (normally $160 - use coupon code: [EMCPAWD56]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate).
