Let's begin this week's deal 'o the week with some juicy gaming bargains, as we often do. Amazon is running a pretty tantalizing sale on Ubisoft games, where you can grab two titles for the price of one. The games are purportedly DRM-free, and they include bygone blockbusters like Assassin's Creed, Far Cry 2, Call of Juarez 2, and Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. Here's the fine print, in Amazon's words:
Buy any of the DRM-free games from Ubisoft below, and once your purchase is complete you will receive an email notifying you that your promotional credit is ready to use. Then return to this page, purchase another game, and the discount will be automatically applied. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time. Credit must be used by April 14, 2012.
If oldies but goodies aren't up your alley, Amazon is also taking 20% or more off certain monitors. I like the look of Viewsonic's VP2365-LED, a 23-incher with an LED-backlit e-IPS panel that's selling for $315.99 with free shipping.
On the graphics side of things, Newegg is offering a Galaxy GeForce GTX 570 with a beefy-looking custom cooler for $249.99 after rebate. That's cheaper than a good number of GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 cards, and the stock-clocked GTX 570 is faster than most of them.
North of the border, NCIX is running yet another one of its promotions, this time to commemorate St. Patrick's day. Among the items on sale are Crucial's 64GB m4 solid-state drive, which you can nab for $89.99 CAD—that's actually cheaper than at Newegg in the U.S., by the way.
