We've got two pairs of noteworthy items for you this week: a power supply and a game, plus two promotions currently taking place in the U.S. and Canada.
Let's kick things off with the power supply. Corsair's Builder Series CX430 V2 PSU is now available for a tantalizing $49.99 shipped, and Newegg offers a mail-in rebate that can take the price down to just $29.99. That's not bad at all for a Corsair power supply with 80 Plus certification, a purportedly quiet 120-mm fan, and a three-year warranty. If you think 430W might be a little on the light side for your PC, keep in mind that most gaming setups don't draw anything close to that much power.
Next up is a Steam sale for Crysis and Crysis Warhead, which are currently available as a two-game bundle for $9.99. You can get them separately for a respective $7.49 and $4.99, as well.
Meanwhile, Newegg is running a "bargains for your next build" promotion that shaves a few bucks off a number of components, including Intel's Core i5-2400, Western Digital's Caviar Black 640GB, and Intel's 320 Series 120GB solid-state drive. If you're planning to upgrade soon, those are all worth a look.
NCIX is running a similar sale up in Canada, although this particular promotion commemorates Mother's Day. Still, there are plenty of bargains to be had, from cheap RAM to this surprisingly affordable BenQ display.
