Graphics card prices have stayed largely stationary for the past few months, but the tide might just be turning. Right now, Newegg sells one of XFX's Radeon HD 6870 1GB models for $169.99 with free shipping, or a scant $149.99 after a mail-in rebate. That's with a free copy of DiRT 3, which would normally set you back another 50 bucks or so.
SSD deals are still cropping up with regularity. Corsair's Force GT 120GB drive, which has a SandForce SF-2200 controller and a 6Gbps interface, is currently on sale for $179.99 with free shipping or $149.99 after a mail-in rebate. If that's too rich for your blood, NCIX offers OCZ's slower Vertex Plus 120GB drive for $99.99 after a mail-in rebate in both the United States and Canada.
Last, but not least, Amazon is parting with digital copies of Bulletstorm for $6.99 a pop. Considering that game is less than a year old and a ton of fun to play, I'd say it's about time to grab a copy if you haven't done so already.
