This deal, for the 12nm refresh of Ryzen 5 1600, should really be up there. While it's occasionally run out of stock, for the most part, it's been available readily since December.

Again, note that it's the 12nm refresh of the Ryzen 5 1600, thus comes with the Wraith Stealth instead of the Wraith Spire, and the part number is YD1600BBAFBOX, rather than YD1600BBAEBOX.

"You can expect a 2K resolution (2560 x 1600) with this IPS display."

"The Acer Nitro VG240Y display has a 2K resolution of 1920 x 1080"

If we have to deal with "2k" resolution being a thing, can we at least do it with some consistency in what resolution it refers to?
I honestly thought it was another way of saying QHD/1440p, but neither of these are that. Why do I think that?
Because that was the definition Tom's Hardware posted literally last week

A suggestion for this page in general, since things just get added to it - perhaps it's best next to each item listed to put the date (or date and time) that it was added, so we know which ones were the reason for the last update, which are recent and might still be valid, and which are older and might no longer be available.

As of today (January 29, 2020) there's a nice deal on a Ryzen 3600 at Micro Center for $160. It's an in-store only price. And you can save an additional $20 when bundled with a compatible eligible motherboard.

MicroCenter is just insane on the price reductions, I got a 2600x for $80 (but really it was $60 after the combo). My friend is currently buying a computer to render things in Blender and the pricing on the Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3600MHz CL18 32GB(2x16GB) is about half off at MicroCenter compared to any other online retailer. MicroCenter never ceases to surprise me with their crackhead deals.
