So, it looks like memory prices are still on a steep downward trend. How much so? Our July 1 deal post featured an 8GB Kingston DDR3 memory kit priced at $66.99, yet right now, Newegg offers the exact same kit for $52.99 with free shipping—no mail-in rebates involved. This is a time-limited Shell Shocker deal, though, so I wouldn't wait too long.
Other tantalizing deals this week include OCZ's 120GB Agility 3 solid-state drive, which is on sale for $199.99 shipped or $169.99 after a mail-in rebate. That's shockingly affordable for a drive whose sequential read and write speeds are supposed to top out at 525MB/s and 500MB/s, respectively. OCZ covers this bad boy with a three-year warranty.
Next up, we have Corsair's Obsidian Series 650D case, which is down from $199.99 to $169.99 with free shipping if you enter the promo code "EMCKCJH34" on the checkout page. You can bring the price down to just $149.99 via a mail-in rebate. In case you didn't get the memo, the 650D is the more rectangular, better-looking sibling of the TR Editor's Choice award-winning Graphite Series 600T. At that price, we'd recommend the 650D for sure.
Up in Canada, NCIX offers comparable deals on the 120GB Agility 3, which is down to $199.99 CAD (or $169.99 CAD after rebate), and the Obsidian Series 650D, which you can nab for $149.99 CAD (though that's before shipping). Those longing for a low-cost enclosure should be happy to discover that the Antec Three Hundred is on sale for $39.99 CAD, too.
