Falcon Northwest has built a cult-like following behind its high-end desktops, and it’s easy to see why the brand is so beloved by gamers and creators. Performance-packed specs, like AMD’s 12-core Ryzen 3900X CPU, coupled with the company’s immaculate attention to detail, unrivaled construction, and sleek design give the venerable Talon the chops to go toe-to-toe with Apple’s Mac Pro.

Custom-built from the ground up, Falcon Northwest had re-envisioned its famed desktop with modern amenities. For the first time in its history, the Talon 20th Anniversary Edition finally embraces LED backlighting, and the result is nothing short of stunning. Suicide-style doors and subtle glowing accents help give this understated, all-black metal-clad bad boy an edge without making it appear too aggressive. This is a desktop that’s designed to last — and outlast — you, thanks to its highly upgradeable design and unbreakable build quality.

It’s not all looks, though, and thankfully the Talon 20th Anniversary has the brawn and brains to take on the best workstations. With plenty of internal space to support dual graphics cards, custom cooling solutions, and upgrades for storage and memory, the Talon has been an instrumental tool for NASA researchers and virtual reality developers at Facebook’s Oculus alike. With great powers comes great responsibility, so the question is what will you do with this unstoppable desktop if you win?

Full specs:

  • AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core CPU
  • Asetek 280mm Gen6 liquid cooling
  • ASUS ROG X570 chipset motherboard

The best gaming laptops in 2024: tested and reviewed
Cyberpunk 2077 on the Lenovo Legion Pro 5.

Finding the best gaming laptop is no easy task. You want something as portable as it is powerful, all while balancing battery life, heat, and fan noise. A lot of gaming laptops get this balance wrong, but a select few rise above and get it right.

While there are some 2024 gaming laptops already coming out, there aren't new mobile GPUs out, meaning they'll have to battle against the best from last year, which are increasingly discounted. So, whether you're looking for something cheaper to match a specific budget or an all-in, no-compromise machine, you're bound to find something below that suits your fancy.

Samsung’s 57-inch 4K monitor is $800 off for Memorial Day
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57-inch mini-LED gaming monitor placed on a desk.

There are a lot of excellent uses for widescreen monitors, and one of the best is using them for better immersion when playing video games. Of course, some of the best widescreen monitors really need to run on high-end gaming PCs with powerful GPUs, like the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9. If you do have something like an RTX 4090, then you're in luck because not only is the Odyssey Neo G9 one of the best monitors on the market, but Samsung has also discounted it heavily down to$1,700 from the original $2,500.

Why you should buy the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9
This massive 57-inch widescreen monitor runs a 7,680 x 2,160 resolution, so you can really crank the visual quality if you want to get the best graphics you want. Alternatively, you could take advantage of the very impressive 240Hz refresh rate at max resolution, which is a difficult thing to achieve, so it's only really found in more expensive monitors. You'll also be happy to know that you get a 1ms GtG response time that's perfect for competitive gamers and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro to help avoid screen tears or ghosting when running it at higher refresh rates. The 1000R curved screen will also help quite a bit with immersion when gaming.

My unique wireless keyboard-with-trackpad is now just $22
The Logitech K400 Plus on top of pillow.

Lately, I've been sporting a delightful laptop and projector combo for my nighttime YouTube viewing. It's a weird technicality that lets me get "less screen time" and promotes just watching the video over browsing the same eight sites in rotation. The unfortunate problem I encountered, however, was that I had to keep my laptop close by and even use it to control what content I watch. An unlikely answer to my woes came in the form of the Logitech K400 Plus, pictured above. It's a unique keyboard and trackpad combo that's total wireless, has some unique features, and is on a massive sale. While I recall paying the full price of $40 for it, you can get yours for just $22 (a savings of $18) now by tapping the button below. Or, keep reading to see the sneaky features that make this so great.

Why you should buy the Logitech K400 Plus
Despite initially hesitating to buy the Logitech K400 Plus, it has turned into something I use nightly, with its USB-A connector taking a near-permanent spot in my laptop. The trackpad is easy to navigate with and, much like I can be accused of having two left feet, it has two left mouse buttons. If you see the bright yellow button in the top left, that's a secondary left mouse button you can use if you want to dual-hand the keyboard like a controller.
