19 free games on Twitch Prime over the next couple weeks. Lots of previous bundle fodder, but some good stuff. 

Spoiler

Twitch should give Steam keys.

I'm doing what you guys suggested and scouring my local Craigslist for a used EVGA gtx 1060, hopefully with 6GB.  I've been seeing some listings for ~ $200.  That should last a year or two.   Hopefully I don't encounter a shitbag seller that gives me a broken card.  Then I can start buying and playing new games again.  8-)

You can probably get a new one for $40 more in a month or so.

I have some stuff on my wish list that I won't buy at 75% off because it's just there to remind me that I was interested in it should it get bundled.

This.  75% of my wishlist is: 'keep an eye out for this in a bundle.'

Okay, bored, so I searched the Steamdb lists for discounts over 70%.

 

Some notable stuff for new-ish people and/or old-ish people who might have bypassed these games the last dozen sales:  Most Valve developed titles (HL series, L4D, etc) are dirt cheap, Trine, Orc Must Die series, Postal series, Derpus Ex the original, Vampire Bloodlines, the older Hitman titles, Long Dark is under $8, older Squeenix titles (Thief, etc.), Derp Space, Beyond Good and Evil, Serious Sam games, Gothic series, King's Bounty series, Divine Divinity, Legacy of Kain series, Rebel Galaxy, Arx Fatalis, Zeno Clash series, and FEAR series.

True story: I got Starbound for $6ish in a Russian 4-pack before they put the kibosh on that.  Wasn't worth $6, certainly not worth more.

On second thought I don't want to be a Mooby.

You're not in Mooby country until you literally buy nothing from a sale.  My last Steam purchase was November 2017, I bought Borderlands 2 Mercenary Day DLC for $0.89.  Don't think I even played it.  Before that I bought Dead Rising 1 in August 2017 for $8 (it eventually ended up in a Humble Bundle).  Before that I bought some crappy $1.50ish indie game package (I am Weapon/Zombie something) in December 2016.  And before that, DLC for Hand of Fate 1 for $1ish in October 2016.

 

In two years I have bought four things from the Steam store for a grand total of $12ish.  The deals are mediocre to terrible.  Last time I made multiple purchases during a major Steam sale was Summer 2014.

This looks like the Intel version of the AMD Lenovo I originally posted.  Slower Ghz but I'm guessing that doesn't mean much on an Intel vs. an AMD.  Have also read that UHD 620 integrated graphics slightly beats out the R7 Radeon.  Plus I've heard latest Windows 10 updates runs poorly on AMD hardware.

Even if you don't  think you'll be needing too much ram, consider getting at least 8 GB, the OS and the web browser will appreciate it.

You know, I had a revelation last night.  I should only buy games I intend to play.  Weird notion, right?

 

I think there's something wrong with me.

Welcome to the club.  Although, the truly elite VIP section is for: games you intend to play but probably won't end up in a Humble Bundle.

The fact that you have to buy 'insurance' to make sure the key you get works should be enough to stay away.

Not to be a Debbie Downer or a Petey Pooper but I believe Van Helsing the Final Cut (included all three games) was in the $1 tier of some Humble.
