Save 25% on the Samsung 860 Evo SSD range at Amazon, right now

If you haven’t got an SSD for your PC build yet, now’s your chance (and honestly, why not? They’re fantastic). Amazon are knocking around 25 percent off our favorite, the Samsung 860 Evo range, in the US. Meanwhile, you can get them on Amazon.co.uk for up to 57 percent less. In practical terms, that’s a saving of at least $50/£100. Which isn’t bad for a component we say is the best SSD for gaming. While the list price on Amazon is maybe a little higher than average, the saving is still good if you’re looking for a reliable new SSD for your build.

Normally, the most you can expect to receive after completing a game of Hearthstone is 10 gold and the satisfaction that only comes from making a stranger on the internet unhappy. But from today, you may also be lucky enough to acquire an infectious curse called… [ominous trumpet sounds] ...THE MARK OF HAKKAR. The form the mark takes is the sweet card back, which you'll earn if you complete a match against another player who has already acquired the mark.
