I sang the praises of Eidos Montreal's Deus Ex: Human Revolution this morning, and as luck would have it, the game came up in my deal hunt this afternoon. Three days after the title's release, Amazon already has it on sale for a tantalizing $34.99. That's for a digital download, by the way—so no shipping costs to worry about.
Next up, we've got a handful of memory and storage bargains for you this week. Newegg is letting folks grab an 8GB dual-channel kit of Kingston DDR3-1333 memory for $41.99 shipped, provided you enter the coupon code "EMCKBHD29" on the checkout page. Don't wait too long, though; the code expires on September 1.
On the storage side of things, Kingston's 96GB SSDNow V+100 solid-state drive is on sale for $104.99 after a $30 mail-in rebate. If you're feeling adventurous, OCZ's 60GB Vertex Plus can be had for $49.99 after a $10 mail-in rebate—but user reviews of it are less encouraging.
North of the border, NCIX is running a back-to-school sale with plenty of fine deals to go around. The 120GB version of the Vertex Plus is available for $119.99 CAD after a $20 MIR, for example, and there's an 8GB kit of Corsair XMS DDR3-1333 RAM to be had for just $39.99 CAD.
