Nvidia began bundling Metro: Last Light with higher-end GeForce graphics cards earlier this week. As luck would have it, Newegg has one of those cards on sale today: Galaxy's GeForce GTX 660 Ti GC, which is down from $279.99 to just $254.99 after a $25 mail-in rebate (and shipping is free). The card features a dual-fan cooler, and its base and Boost speeds are quite a ways above Nvidia's reference—1006MHz and 1084MHz, respectively, up from 915/980MHz.
Next up, Crucial's M500 480GB solid-state drive, which we reviewed yesterday, is currently available for $331.49 shipped at Newegg. The list price is $389.99, but you can take 15% off by entering the promo code "EMCYTZT3329" on the checkout page. That works out to 69 cents per gigabyte, which is extremely affordable for a drive in that capacity range. The 480GB M500 is a pretty solid performer, too, as we saw in our review.
Oh, and Portal 2 is on sale for $4.99 on Steam. Any self-respecting gamer ought to own this game already, but if you've skipped it for some unfathomable reason, now's the time to make things right.
Let's wrap things up with a link to NCIX's latest sale: the NCIX's Phenomenal Signature Sale Event. I don't know where they get those names, but the deals definitely aren't bad. They include a Corsair H60 liquid cooler for $59.99 CAD, a 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7,200-RPM hard drive for $59.99 CAD, and many others.
