A TR's Editor's Choice winner, the MSI Power Edition version of the card, is currently on sale for $299.99 after a $10 mail-in rebate at Newegg. Assuming you get the rebate check in the mail, that means you'll wind up paying the same for a reference-clocked model—but the Power Edition runs at 1019MHz, up over 100MHz from the reference 915MHz. It also features a great dual-fan cooler, which we found to be pretty quiet in our testing, and it ships with a coupon for a free copy of Borderlands 2. (The game is due out on September 18 and will likely sell for $59.99.)
Corsair's CX430 power supply is also on sale. Normally listed at $44.99, the unit can be had for $5 below list price using the promo code EMCNBJF33, and Newegg offers a $20 mail-in rebate on top of that. Final price: $19.99 with free shipping. Not bad for an 80 Plus-rated 430W power supply. Not bad at all.
Speaking of Corsair, Newegg offers the company's 16GB DDR3-1333 ValueSelect dual-channel kit for just $79.99 shipped, so long as you enter the promo code CORS817 on the checkout page. This kit is made up of two 8GB modules rated for operation at 1333MHz with 9-9-9-24 timings and a 1.5V signal voltage.
Finally, we see Newegg has a physical copy (remember those?) of Batman: Arkham City on sale for just $9.99 shipped. The same title costs $29.99 on Steam right now, so if you don't mind dealing with physical media, that's a steal.
North of the border, NCIX's Back 2 School sale is in full swing. You can nab WD's 3TB Caviar Green hard drive for $139.99 CAD and OCZ's 128GB Vertex 4 solid-state drive for $99.99 CAD after a $10 mail-in rebate, among other bargains. NCIX has MSI's GTX 660 Ti Power Edition on sale for $294.99 CAD after a $15 mail-in rebate, as well, which is slightly cheaper than at Newegg.
