The Steam Summer Sale has been running all week, slowly impoverishing PC gamers everywhere. There are still some great deals to be found among today's picks, including:
Not one to be one-upped, Amazon also has a number of games on sale on its digital distribution platform. Those include several titles that either cost more on Steam or aren't available on Valve's service at all:
Of course, the flood of game bargains doesn't mean there are no hardware deals to be found. Newegg, for one, is letting folks shave 10% off desktop memory modules using the promo code EMCNCHN45. You can grab an 8GB Corsair ValueSelect DDR3-1333 dual-channel kit for $37.79 with free shipping instead of $41.99. Just enter "EMCNCHN45" (without the quotes) on the checkout page.
Similarly, Newegg has a promo code that takes $50 off select laptops. Eligible systems include Sony's Vaio SVT13114GXS ultrabook, which you can grab for $799.99 with free shipping instead of $849.99. The system has a 13.3" display, a 1.7GHz Ivy Bridge processor, 4GB of RAM, a 32GB solid-state drive, and a 500GB mechanical hard drive. The laptop is 0.71" thick and weighs in at 3.54 lbs.
North of the border, NCIX has a sale of its own underway: the Christmas in July Sale. Notable bargains there include an 8GB kit of Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600 memory, which is available for $39.99 CAD, and OCZ's 120GB Agility 3 solid-state drive, which you can grab for $89.99 CAD after a $10 mail-in rebate.
