We've got a couple of hardware bargains for you all this week—and, of course, some links to the latest Steam sale.
Need a new graphics card? EVGA's GeForce GTX 660 is down to just $169.99 at Newegg. The list price is $199.99, but you can take 5% off by entering a promo code (EMCXNWP49) on the checkout page, and there's a $20 mail-in rebate in the mix. Newegg offers free shipping, and you get a free copy of Splinter Cell Blacklist, as well.
Newegg also has some Corsair power supplies on sale. One of the best deals is Corsair's TX650M, which is available for $78.49 after a 15%-off promo code (EMCXNWL32) and a $15 mail-in rebate. This bad boy has modular cabling, 80 Plus Bronze certification, full Haswell support, a 140-mm double-ball-bearing fan, and a single 12V rail that can pump out as much as 648W.
Meanwhile, Steam's Summer Getaway Sale is still in full swing. Current deals include:
It looks like those are going to stick around for the next 19 hours or so. Of course, new games are always popping up in flash sales and the like, so you'll want to keep an eye on the Steam store page.
Our friends in Canada can partake in the Steam sale. They can also scour NCIX's Beat the Heat Sale Event, which includes plenty of tantalizing hardware deals. For example, WD's Caviar Green 3TB hard drive is down to just $127.99 CAD—or just over 4 cents per gigabyte.
