Newegg is currently in the midst of a 48-hour sale, providing plenty of interesting fodder for this week's deal post. The star of the show might just be Antec's Nine Hundred mid-tower enclosure, which normally sells for $140 but is discounted to just $100 right now. Enter the promo code EMCYWYS39 to knock another 15 bucks off the price, taking it down to $84.99. There's a $20 mail-in rebate, too, which could drop the net price to 65 bucks. Not bad for an enthusiast-oriented tower with loads of drive bays, a window, and four massive fans.
Speaking of rebates, there's also one attached to Corsair's Force F120 solid-state disk. This 120GB SandForce-based SSD is usually listed at $349, but it's currently discounted to $294. Factor in a $50 mail-in rebate, and the drive could end up costing you only $244—the best price we've seen on a SandForce-powered SSD.
If you'd rather not count on a rebate check arriving in the mail, $20 worth of instant savings brings Gigabyte's GA-785GM-US2H Socket AM3 motherboard down to $65. This 785G-based microATX board has everything you need for a budget home-theater PC, including decent integrated graphics, an HDMI output, and a Realtek audio codec that can encode Dolby Digital Live bitstreams on the fly.
Finally, a game. And quite a good one, too, if our podcast editor, Metacritic, and just about everyone else I've heard discussing the title is to be believed. GoGamer has the PC version of Mass Effect 2 on sale for just $16.90, a savings of 66%. That's a pretty good deal for a critically acclaimed game that's barely six months old.
