After the post-holiday lull, hardware deals seem to be increasing in frequency again. We've gathered a nice number of them this week.
For starters, Newegg has Sapphire's Radeon HD 6850 (with a bundled copy of DiRT 3) on sale for $119.99 after a mail-in rebate. The card is actually listed for $149.99, but you can slice $15 off with the promo code SAP127, and that mail-in rebate will take care of another $15. Shipping is free.
Also in the almost-too-good-to-be-true category, Corsair's CX430 V2 power supply can be nabbed for $16.99 after a mail-in rebate. That's $44.99 minus $8 if you enter the coupon code "EMCNJHD22" on the checkout page, and minus another $20 once you eventually get that rebate check in the mail. Newegg is also shipping this item free of charge. Considering the CX430 is an 80 Plus-certified unit with a relatively meaty 12V rail and a three-year warranty, $17 is a downright steal.
Now that hard drive prices are on the decline, pulling the trigger on a mass-storage drive seems like a reasonable proposition again. Newegg is offering both Western Digital's 2TB Caviar Green and Seagate's 2TB Barracuda Green for $129.99 before shipping—still a ways from pre-flood prices, but reasonable for sure.
If games are more up your alley, you'll be happy to know that Amazon is still letting folks pre-order upcoming PC blockbusters at a discount. The retailer offers Mass Effect 3 for $53.99, Syndicate for $53.99, and The Darkness II for $42.49.
Meanwhile, north of the border, NCIX is celebrating the Chinese New Year with a special sale. Hot deals include a 1.5TB Western Digital Caviar Green drive selling for $89.99, a 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 solid-state drive available for $149.99 after a mail-in rebate, and an 8GB kit of Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1333 memory (complete with funky heatsinks) retailing for $44.99.
