Cheap memory is a staple of our deal posts—and with good reason. More is almost always better, and thanks to factors ranging from oversupply to shrinking production costs, prices have been on a downward slope for quite a while now.
Today, we've singled out two such deals from Newegg, including one from the e-tailer's 72-hour weekend sale. The first deal is a 4GB dual-channel kit of Kingston's HyperX DDR3-1333 memory. Newegg quotes a regular price of $47.99, but it's slicing $5 off via an instant rebate and an additional $15 with a mail-in rebate. That brings your total down to $27.99 with free shipping. Those with bigger appetites may prefer Crucial's 8GB Ballistix Sport DDR3-1333 kit, which is on sale for only $76.99 with free shipping.
To mix things up, Newegg is also knocking a substantial amount off the price of Corsair's TX850W power supply. That unit normally sells for $159.99, but you can grab it for $119.99 by entering the coupon code "EMCKDJC26" on the checkout page, and there's a $15 mail-in rebate to be had on top of that. $104.99 with free shipping for an 850W PSU with 80 Plus Bronze certification and a five-year warranty isn't anything to scoff at.
Up in Canada, NCIX is running another one of its wide-ranging sales, this time to celebrate Father's Day. There are plenty of nice bargains there, including WD's Caviar Green 2.5TB hard drive on sale for only $99.99 CAD. I believe this is the first time I've seen a drive larger than 2TB hit the 4 cents/gigabyte sweet spot.
