For our deal post this week, we've singled out two delightfully affordable graphics cards from AMD.
The first is PowerColor's Radeon HD 7950 Boost, which is on sale for just $249.99 after a $20 mail-in rebate at Newegg. The card comes with free copies of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, BioShock Infinite, Crysis 3, and Tomb Raider. If you don't think that's cheap, remember the 7950 Boost typically sells for $300 or more. $250 is a steal, especially when you consider the game bundle.
If that's still too rich for your blood, Newegg has Sapphire's Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition on sale for $214.99 after a $20 MIR. That card also ships with free copies of all the aforementioned games, and it's actually clocked a little higher than AMD's reference—1050MHz, up from 1000MHz. The thing has a beefy-looking dual-slot cooler, too. Not bad at all—but less remarkable than the 7950.
Hardware not up your alley? Well, Amazon has boatload of indie games on sale, if you're into those. There are too many to list here, but a few caught my eye in particular:
Amazon offers a number of indie game bundles, as well. I haven't heard of most of the titles in those, but I guess that's part of the point. Oh, and Amazon says 100% of sales go to the developers—classy move.
Let's wrap things up with some Canadian deals for our friends in the north. NCIX's latest promotion is called the DIY Sale Event, and it includes items like a 4TB Seagate hard drive for $159.99 and a superclocked EVGA GeForce GTX 660 for $199.99 CAD, among many others.
