Newegg has the Core I5-2500k for 224.99 marked down to 209.99 with a $15 off code
They also have one of my favorite backup drives for sale at a pretty damn good price. These usually run for about $225 with sales and all of that, but with a $20 off code "EMCNHHB26" and a $50 mail-in-rebate from the manufacturer, it brings this sweet 2gb, fireproof/water proof backup drive to $179.99. That's a pretty good price if you consider the fire proof/water proof, the 1 year data recovery service.. "DRS: Data and hardware recovery for any loss, any reason - no questions asked. Also provides up to $1000 for forensic data recovery efforts"
You'd be hard pressed to find a 2tb HDD that's 7200rpm and an enclosure that comes anywhere near this quality or functionality for this price. The only "downside" to this is that it is USB 2.0, which is more than likely why they are selling them to make room for their USB 3.0 drives. They also have eSata drives which I elect not to use because of hot-swappability (like the word swapertunity
) not being very uniformed across all systems with eSata. But if you just want to make sure that you have all of your important data like Tax information, family pictures/videos and the like, this would suit you very well and give you piece of mind.
They have lots of videos up, but here is one of the more impressive with their newer SSD based ones. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIwogx1H6Mw
Freaking awesome. The other videos don't cut anything, and they show you them getting to the data that they put on the drive right before submerging it in a pool for a few hours after burning it in a fire above their heat rating. I've hooked up about 10 of these for different clients, more than half of those have been in place for over 2 years and they run flawless.
My third item is just something you'll find on newegg. All Asus motherboards are 10% off, any of them and I have confirmed that you can use discount codes on top of the 10% off
