We've got some solid-state drive, memory, and PC game deals for you all this week, starting with a sale on Crucial products at Amazon. The sale lets you grab Crucial's m4 64GB and 128GB SSDs for $99.99 and $184.99 (down from the usual $126.99 and $222.99), respectively, plus a 4GB kit of Ballistix Sport DDR3-1333 RAM for just $25.99—among other things.
Those are great prices for the most part, although the 64GB Crucial m4 is five bucks cheaper at Newegg. Oh, and Newegg also has Corsair's Force Series 3 120GB SSD on sale for $165.99 shipped, or $135.99 after a mail-in rebate. The m4 drives have considerably more positive user reviews, so they might be a better choice for less adventurous users. But, you know... whatever floats your boat.
On the gaming side of things, Amazon still has digitally downloadable versions of both Dead Island and Deus Ex: Human Revolution on sale for $39.99 each. That's down $10 from the regular price. I strongly recommend the latter.
Our Canadian friends can venture over to NCIX, which is running its Fantastic Fall Sale Event until September 28. That sale covers plenty of gear, like Corsair's Carbide Series 400R enclosure (on sale for $89.99 CAD), Mushkin's 8GB Stiletto DDR3-1333 memory kit ($39.99 CAD before a $5 mail-in rebate), and many more.
