With the release of the Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, the dethroned GTX 1080 dropped in price to around $500 from $650. Prices vary when it comes to graphics cards depending on the manufacturer and model, but swooping up a GTX 1080 for $450 is a tough deal to pass up if you’re in the market for a high-end card.

The Sennheiser HD 598 headphones are regarded as some of the best at the consumer level. You can have the same audio quality with the Sennheiser HD 558 and for much cheaper. The HD 558 uses the same audio drivers as the HD 598–the main difference is the build quality. Keep in mind that the HD 558 is open-back, so sound will leak out from the headphones, but the benefits are better soundstage and positional audio.
The HD 558 has a 6.5mm jack natively, but it comes with a 3.5mm converter. This makes the input end fairly bulky, but it’s a minor complaint.
