August RUSH

Rush, rush! The August RUSH sale is now on at Essential IT Solutions.

The bargains are available while stocks last so the quickest way to grab one is to point your browser to the Essential IT Solutions SPECIALS page.

On sale are graphics cards, memory, gaming gear, powerbanks, inverters, computers and laptops.

These are some of the bargains –

Gigabyte RX 460 graphics card

The new Gigabyte RX 460 2048Mb 128bit GDDR5 WindForce OC graphics card, featuring AMD’s fourth-gen GCN architecture, based on the Baffin graphics processor, built in the 14nm FinFET node, packing 3 billion transistors into 123 square millimeters on the die space, and available right now for only R2 599.

The reviews are really good. As Tom’s Hardware reports, “AMD is setting its 460 up to be a killer deal,” and “across AotS, Hitman, and Doom, the RX 460 is either as fast as the R9 270X/370X and GTX 760/950 or faster.”

The Gigabyte RX 460 is available now in the AMD Radeon Graphics Cards category.

Kingston Fury HyperX RAM

Adding RAM is the quickest and cheapest way to increase the speed of your computer.

The popular Kingston 4GB Fury HyperX RAM is back on special at only R499 each.

These are the 240-Pin PC3-12800 CL10 DDR3 1600MHz modules and they can be overclocked. What’s more, they come in different colours, which looks especially awesome in cases with windows.

You’ll find these good-looking RAM modules in the DDR3 Memory category.


Refurbished computers

If you’ve visited our online Refurbished category a few times you may have noticed the fluctuations in available products and stock levels with each visit. In short, refurbished computers, laptops and servers fly off the shelf. The  reason is simple: these are real bargains. For a much reduced price compared to new, you get a famous make computer, laptop or server with top components, already loaded with an operating – keep in mind that an OS on it’s own now costs around R2 000 – and with a warranty, starting from a little over R2 000 (yes, with OS included). To top it, they really do look good as well.
