Now that AMD has gotten around to releasing a unified driver with Battlefield 3 and Rage support, there's no shame in snapping up a Radeon for the fall game release season. That's a good thing, because Amazon has quite a deal on a Radeon HD 6870 right now.
Sapphire's stock-clocked Radeon HD 6870 is on sale for $159.99 with free shipping, and you can get the price down to just $139.99 via a mail-in rebate. Not bad for a card that usually sells closer to $180—and can keep up with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 560, which is even pricier.
North of the border, NCIX's Thanksgiving sale event is in full swing. (Yes, Canadian Thanksgiving is next Monday.) Among the many discounted items are WD's 2TB Caviar Green, which is available for $69.99 CAD, and LG's IPS231P 23-inch IPS display, which you can nab for only $199.99 CAD—even cheaper than at Amazon and Newegg.
