AMD made some cuts to Radeon HD 7000-series prices earlier this week. The cuts have since propagated to e-tail listings, and the pickings are plentiful.
The Radeon HD 7950 is now down from $450 to $400, and you can nab a stock-clocked XFX model with bundled copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Dirt 3 for $399.99 before shipping. At the lower end of the spectrum, the Radeon HD 7770 is even available below its new $139 price tag. We see an HIS model selling for $129.99 with a free copy of Dirt 3. At that price, the 7770 is really starting to look like a bargain.
On the SSD front, Corsair's SandForce SF-2200-based Force Series 3 120GB is selling for $119.99 shipped after a mail-in rebate. If you're looking for something a little cheaper to use as a system drive, Crucial's 64GB m4 can be had for just $89.99 shipped. Both are fast drives, with controllers tuned for 6Gbps SATA, and both feature three-year warranties.
North of the border, NCIX also offers XFX's vanilla Radeon HD 7950 for $399.99, and it has a PowerColor Radeon HD 7770 selling for $129.99. You can find more deals among the e-tailer's Time-to-Upgrade sale listings.
