Corsair's Obsidian Series 650D is an excellent case, pairing the roomy, easy-to-use internals of the 600T with the good looks of the pricier 800D. While I faulted the 650D for not being quite as cheap as it could be, the tables seem to have turned thanks to a combination of promotions.
Newegg currently sells the Obsidian Series 650D for $199.99, as it should. However, you can slice off $20 by entering the promo code "EMCKEGJ42" on the checkout page, and Newegg offers a $20 mail-in rebate on top of that. Add the free shipping offered by the e-tailer, and you're down to a final price of $159.99.
That actually makes the 650D more affordable than its little sister. The more rounded, jovial-looking Graphite Series 600T currently sells for $159.99, but shipping will set you back another $19.99, and the mail-in rebate offered only saves you 10 bucks.
Up in Canada, NCIX is running a juicy sale on OCZ's 60GB Vertex 2 solid-state drive. Normally priced at $132.33 CAD, the drive is now selling for $104.99 CAD, and you can snag it for just $89.99 CAD after a mail-in rebate. 60GB ought to be enough for a system drive without too many games installed, and 90 bucks is just a steal for a quick, SandForce-based SSD like this one.
