We already mentioned the Radeon HD 7000-series price cuts in last week's deal post, but prices seem to have dropped even more since then. Take HIS's Radeon HD 7950, which is now available for just $369.99 with free shipping. That's way below the $449.99 launch price, of course, but it's also 30 bucks less than what the card cost last week ($399.99), right after the AMD price cuts hit.
AMD didn't officially announce cuts to the 7800 series, but those cards have gotten cheaper anyway. Newegg now offers a PowerColor Radeon HD 7870 for $329.99 shipped and an HIS Radeon HD 7850 for just $239.99. For reference, the 7870 and 7850 cost $349 and $249 at launch, respectively, and their prices didn't seem to have budged last week. Both cards now come with a free copy of DiRT 3, too.
Otherwise, folks not interested in graphics cards may find that speedy solid-state storage tickles their fancy. Samsung's 128GB 830 Series drive is on sale for $135.99 shipped, provided you enter the promo code "HARDOCPX425A" on the checkout page. The code is only good until May 1, so don't wait too long. The 256GB version of this drive earned our Editor's Choice award back in February, so it's nice to see the 128GB model priced so reasonably.
Finally, as always, we have a little something for our Canadian readers. NCIX has a PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 on sale for just $349.99 CAD (cheaper than in the States), and the e-tailer's 16th anniversary sale includes a wealth of other bargains, like Western Digital's 2TB Caviar Green hard drive for $109.99 CAD.
