Right now we have got a deal on the RX 6800 non-XT, with an MSI mannequin going for slightly below $400 at Newegg. That is a $70 discount from its regular worth and $20 cheaper than the most affordable RX 6800 mannequin on Amazon. That is an superior deal for a robust 1440p graphics card that comes with a replica of Starfield Premium Version (which incorporates the Shattered House story enlargement, a digital artwork e-book, the sport’s OST and some weapon/go well with skins on high of the bottom sport).
