We've all been extraordinarily busy today, so our deal search was a little shorter than usual. Still, we found a very juicy graphics deal at Newegg.
The e-tailer is selling the XFX Double D version of AMD's Radeon HD 7850 1GB for only $132.49 after a 10%-off promo code (EMCXRVS26) and a $25 mail-in rebate. The card also comes with free copies of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, BioShock Infinite, and the new Tomb Raider. At that price, it's almost like you're getting the card free with the games.
Our benchmarks show the Radeon HD 7850 1GB is quicker than its successor, the new Radeon HD 7790, overall. The 7850 1GB is being discontinued, though, so deals like this one probably won't be popping up for much longer.
Also on sale at Newegg today is the 2TB, 7,200-RPM 'cuda from Seagate, which is down to $84.99 after the promo code EMCXRVS38. WD's Green 2TB hard drive was down to the same price last week; now, it looks like it's Seagate's turn.
