Geoff already covered Amazon's and Steam's PC game sales earlier today, so let's get right on to hardware bargains, shall we?
Asus' GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II is down to $170 at Newegg. The card is actually listed for $209.99, but you can take $21 off with a promo code (EMCXNXL23) and another $20 off via a mail-in rebate. The $170 final price makes this card wonderfully affordable—especially since this is a nice Asus model with dual fans, higher-than-reference clock speeds, and a free copy of Splinter Cell Blacklist thrown in.
Also, WD's Green 2TB hard drive is down to $84.99 at Newegg after a $15-off promo code (EMCXNWV22). You probably shouldn't use this thing as your primary system drive, but it's a fine mass-storage workhorse. At just over four cents a gig, it's definitely a bargain. And free shipping is available.
Up in the not-so-frozen north, NCIX is running its Christmas in July sale. As usual, there are many deals of note, like a 120GB Kingston SSDNow V300 solid-state drive for $95.99 CAD and a 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive from Corsair for $9.98 CAD. Check out the sale page for all the items.
(Thanks to SlickDeals for the heads-up on some of these.)
