We've got a trio of sub-$100 deals for you this week. The first one is part of Newegg's month-end blowout sale: an 8GB kit of Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 memory with fancy heatspreaders for only $74.99 shipped. This kit normally retails for $99.99, but you can reduce the price by 25% by entering the coupon code "EMCKFHB23" on the checkout page. $75 isn't just dirt-cheap for fancy enthusiast memory; it's dirt-cheap, period. Newegg charges at least $79 for 8GB kits that aren't on sale right now, and those are from smaller manufacturers and rated to run at lower speeds.
Next up: Amazon has hard copies of Shift 2: Unleashed on sale for just $29.95 with free shipping. Keep in mind that game hit stores less than a month ago and still costs 50 bucks on Steam. Our own Geoff Gasior is a fan, too.
Finally, we've got something for our Canadian readers. NCIX has a 15th anniversary sale going on, and discounted items include Western Digital's 2TB Caviar Green hard drive, which you can snag for $69.99 CAD. We're talking about 3.5 cents per gigabyte here, which is definitely a bargain, especially for a drive that tends to rack up good user reviews.
