This week's deal post is all about three-letter acronyms and initialisms. Let's start with SSDs: Newegg is running one of its Shell Shocker promotions on Corsair's Force Series GT 120GB solid-state drive, bringing it down to $149.99 shipped, or a tantalizing $119.99 after a mail-in rebate.
The Force GT 120GB earned our TR Editor's Choice award for its excellent performance and attractive price. The drive was second only to OCZ's Vertex 3 120GB in our tests, and the difference between the two amounted to almost nothing overall. (Those two SSDs are based on the same SandForce controller and synchronous NAND.) The Vertex 3 sells for $10 more (or $20 more after rebate) right now.
If DRAM is more up your alley, Mushkin's Enhanced Silverline 16GB DDR3-1333 dual-channel kit is available for $89.99 shipped if you enter the promo code "MUSH413" on the checkout page. That's for two 8GB modules, mind you, not four 4GB ones. Also, Newegg is letting shoppers lop 15% off the price of all Corsair PSUs using the promo code "EMCNFJG23."
Amazon often offers nice discounts on downloadable PC games, and it didn't disappoint us today. As part of the e-tailer's Game Downloads Spring Sale, you can nab Crysis 2 for $7.49, both Dragon Age games for $9.99, L.A. Noire for $4.99, The Darkness II for $12.49, Serious Sam 3 for $12, and Shift 2 Unleashed for $4.99.
Last, but not least, our Canadian friends will want to check out NCIX's Rock Solid sale event. It includes deals like Crucial's M4 128GB solid-state drive, which is on sale for $139.99 CAD, and Corsair's Force 3 120GB, which you can get for $119.98 CAD after a $30 mail-in rebate.
