We have a couple of deals for you today. As part of its Mardi Gras sale, Newegg is currently offering a Radeon HD 4830 512MB graphics card from Sapphire for just $89.99 with free shipping. The e-tailer even throws a $10 mail-in rebate into the mix, so you could walk away with this card for just 80 bucks (assuming you eventually get that rebate check, of course).
As we've said a number of times before, the Radeon HD 4830 is a surprisingly potent offering that should happily run recent games at 1680x1050 with most of the eye candy enabled. That makes it a great upgrade if you're feeling that recession pinch but still want to catch up on the holiday season's new releases.
Speaking of low-cost hardware, we've also noticed that Dell is also running a sale on its Inspiron Mini 9 netbooks, offering the Linux-powered variant for just $199. That system isn't particularly well-endowed—you get a 4GB solid-state drive, 512MB of RAM, 802.11g Wi-Fi, and a four-cell battery—but $200 is still ridiculously cheap for a 9" netbook from a major manufacturer. The upgrade to 1GB of RAM is only an extra $25, too.
