Over to the team at Jelly Deals...

Every day, we at Jelly Deals are out there searching through the deepest, darkest corners of the internet to find the best deals, pre-order prices and offers in the world of gaming and tech. Everything from a cheap pre-order, to good deals on PC tech stuff, or just a heads up on any other bargain that's worth knowing about.

We'll be here each week to post a round-up of the best deals we've found. We check for UK and US deals, so we've got both sides of the pond covered as best we can. If something catches your eye, give it a click and save yourself a bit of money.

We'll start with some US Deals, but if you're reading from the UK, feel free to skip down a bit.

US Deals


Over at Amazon in the US, you can pick up this DBPOWER mechanical keyboard for under $70. This one features all the fancy lighting you could possibly hope for, along with blue mechanical switches. That makes it one of the loud keyboards, but also one of the very precise and satisfying ones. When mechanical keyboards typically cost much more, this one is a bit of a steal.

- DBPOWER RGB Mechanical Keyboard with Blue switches for $69.99 at Amazon


If you're thinking about building a new PC or upgrading your existing setup, this Cooler Master Hyper 212 CPU cooler is worth a look. NewEgg currently has this priced up at $29.99, but with a $10 rebate available the cost is just $19.99. Not bad value for a Cooler Master CPU fan at all.

- Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Cooler for $19.99 (after rebate) at NewEgg


If you haven't gotten around to getting a controller for your PC, or you just like the idea of having a spare, then the Xbox 360 controller is a great option. This wireless version is available on eBay right now for $23.99. To use it wirelessly, you'll need the Microsoft connection dongle, which you can pick up fairly cheaply these days.

- Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for $23.99 at eBay


Over at Amazon, you can pick up the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum 'FPS Mouse'. Logitech do enjoy giving their gaming products rather weird names, but this is a decent mouse from a company that specialises in these peripherals. This mouse features all of the weighty bits and bobs you need to get the feel just right, and also has eleven programmable buttons for extra control. It's down to $59.99 currently.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for storage, you can pick up this 1TB hybrid SSHD for $69.99. That's down from an original price of $109.99. Hybrid drives won't quite give you the speed boost of a full SSD but they're a nice in-between, bridging the balancing act between size and speed. For 70 bucks, you'll get a drive with a lot of space that performs much better than an old-style HDD. Plus, you'll save $40.

- Seagate Hybrid Drive 1TB for $69.99 at NewEgg


There comes a time in all of our lives when we wonder what life would be like if we had a monitor that was so wide, it could be considered eccentric. That time is now. You can pick up this ridiculously wide LG IPS monitor for $269.99. This monitor is usually priced at $400 - and quantities are limited - so if you feel the need for a 29 inch UltraWide monitor in your life, this is a good opportunity to get one and save some money.

- LG 29 Inch UltraWide Monitor for $269.99 at eBay

UK Deals


Kicking things off for the UK, we've got this AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB Graphics Card available at Ebuyer as a pre-order for £173.99. This is probably the cheapest way to grab a VR-capable card you're likely to find anytime soon. This particular model is the 4GB version (GDDR5 RAM, if you were wondering), with a GPU clock of 1266MHz. If you're looking to try your hand at VR with a new or upgraded PC build, this one is well worth a look.

- XFX AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB Graphics Card for £173.99 at Ebuyer


Over on the GeForce side of things, there's this GTX 980 available for £275.99 over at Overclockers. It's true the 1080, 1070 and now the 1060 are available, but if you're looking to build something on a budget the 980 is still a solid card that will keep your performance high for a while longer. This is especially true if you're only looking to run games at 1080p / 60FPS. This particular OC model features a core clock of 1152MHz which can be boosted up to 1252MHz. It works very nicely in SLI as well. And over £40 off ain't bad.

- GeForce GTX 980 OC "Reference Fan" 4GB for £275.99 at Overclockers


In the world of mechanical keyboards, Razer does a pretty good line for the gaming crowd. Currently, their Blackwidow Tournament Edition keyboard is down to just £58.06 on Amazon, which is a bit of a bargain for any peripheral of this kind. This one features Razer's own proprietary switches as well.

- Razer Blackwidow Tournament Edition Mechanical Keyboard for £58.06 at Amazon


If you're looking to step into a world new world of PC gaming, this Acer Predator monitor should do the trick. It's a freakishly wide, 34 inch monitor that is completely GSYNC enabled, which ensures games run as smoothly as possible (if you're running a GeForce card, that is). This thing is pretty pricey though and well set you back a cool grand. At present, Overclockers are taking £50 off that price for a limited time only. It's not much, but money is money and £50 off still helps.

- Acer Predator X34 Monitor With GSYNC for £949.99 at Overclockers


Gaming headsets have a tendency to be expensive. If you're looking for a headset that gives you a distinct style while also letting you chat while you play, GameStop have lowered the price of these Skull Candy PLYR 2 headsets. They're now just under £30, which isn't too bad at all.

- Skull Candy PLYR 2 Headset for £29.97 at GameStop UK
