Deal of the week: Storage, enclosures, and Zotac discounts


— 10:42 AM on August 19, 2011

Storage devices are a staple of our weekly deals posts, and today is no exception. Newegg has a couple of intriguing discounts on mechanical hard drives, including Samsung's EcoGreen Spinpoint F4 1.5TB. The drive usually costs $65, but you can knock it down to an even $50 by applying promo code EMCKBJD32. Want to double up on the EcoGreen's storage capacity? Western Digital's Caviar Green 3TB can be had for only $119 with promo code EMCKBJB28.

Perhaps the best way to complement a low-power hard drive is with an SSD to store one's OS and applications. OCZ's latest solid-state drives are on the receiving end of hefty discounts this week, with the Agility 3 120GB slashed to $160 after a $60 discount and a $30 mail-in rebate. The higher-end Vertex 3 120GB can be had for just $200 thanks to $80 in instant savings and a $20 rebate. Even without the rebates, those are some pretty attractive prices.

Lest you think this week's post is all storage, we've also found a nice little deal on a hot-clocked GeForce GTX 560 from Zotac. The card is down to $200 on Newegg, making it cheaper than anything with comparable clock speeds. There's also a $20 mail-in rebate if you're into that sort of thing. NCIX has some love for Zotac this week, too. The H67 ITX motherboard has dropped to $120, and there's a $30 mail-in rebate on top of that.

Need a case for all your new hardware purchases? NCIX has you covered with a couple of good options at opposite ends of the spectrum. Corsair's excellent Obsidian Series 650D enclosure has been cut to $150, and ground shipping is free for Canadian customers. If you're looking for a real bargain, though, it's tough to beat the Antec Three Hundred case, which is nearly half price at just $40. There's no need to mess around with rebates for either of those cases.
