Looking for a sweet deal on a high-wattage PSU? Newegg has PC Power & Cooling's 910W power supply on sale for $150. That's a $50 discount from the usual asking price, and you can knock it down even more. Promo code OCZPSUMarch is good for an additional 10% off, and a mail-in rebate promises to put $20 back in your pocket... eventually. Final price: $115.
If you're in the mood for copious amounts of mechanical storage, Newegg has further slashed the price of Hitachi's Deskstar 7K3000 3TB hard drive. When we reviewed the drive earlier this week, it had just been discounted from $200 to $180. Today, it's down to $170. That's easily the lowest price we've seen on a 3TB hard drive.
Neither of those deals is available through Newegg's Canadian site. However, folks on both sides of the border have plenty of options in NCIX's St. Patrick's Deals. The best of the lot might be Corsair's A70 CPU cooler, which usually runs about $50 online. NCIX has it for half that price. With dual 120-mm fans and performance comparable to much more expensive coolers, the A70 is a steal at $25.
To balance out the excess of the 910W PSU at the beginning of this post, we have something a little more reasonable: a 500W Builder Series unit from Corsair. This PSU typically sells for $70, but its price has been slashed to just $45. Both NCIX items are priced nearly identically whether you're buying from Canada or the US.
