Prime Day RAM deals
Over the last few months, RAM prices have been dropping precipitously. Just a year ago, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to spend around $200 for 16GB of DDR4 at a decent speed. Luckily, that isn’t the case anymore.
On Amazon Prime Day, there were some pretty juicy RAM deals. Most of them are gone, but you can still save a decent chunk of change on a 32GB kit of Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB.

Prime Day SSD deals
Now that the prices of the best SSDs keep dropping every day, there's no real reason to not go for an SSD. They're faster, more reliable and you don't have to worry about vibrations ruining them.
But, even if they are cheaper than they were two to three years ago, waiting until Amazon Prime Day to pick up your new solid state storage is a no brainer. Every single year, Amazon puts a ton of great SSDs on sale, and this year should be no different.
Still, even though Amazon Prime Day is over, there are still plenty of Amazon Prime Day SSD deals active, but you'll have to act fast.

$299 $224 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
