Let's start this week's deal post with some gaming goodness. The fall release season is in full swing, and a quick look at Amazon's digital download sales will tell you as much. The e-tailer has a wealth of titles available at discounted prices:
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (or, as we like to call it, AssBro) has been out for a while, but it's a fine game, and I'd say it's definitely worth picking up for 12 bucks.
We've also tracked down a handful of hardware deals this week. Kingston's 8GB HyperX DDR3-1333 kit is available for $43.99 shipped at Amazon, and you can get it down to $28.99 with a mail-in rebate. Corsair's Carbide 400R enclosure—a recent winner of our TR Recommended award—is a steal for $99.99, and Newegg is letting you grab Intel's Core i5-2500K for only $204.99 if you enter the coupon code "EMCJKJG34" (minus the quotes) on the checkout page. The i5-2500K outruns AMD's $245 FX-8150 slightly overall, so it's not a bad buy for $205 with free shipping.
North of the border, NCIX is running its Colossal Sale Event until October 19. Plenty of items are on offer at reduced prices, including Corsair's Force 3 120GB solid-state drive, which can be nabbed for $129.99 CAD, and BenQ's BL2400PU 24" display, which apparently has an A-MVA panel and is on sale for $199.99 CAD. NCIX quotes regular prices of $179.99 and $399.99, respectively, for those two items.
