Deal of the week: Graphics cards, hard drives, and keyboards


— 3:39 PM on August 9, 2013

We have some pretty sweet hardware deals this week: two heavily discounted graphics cards, a 4TB hard drive, and a sub-$100 mechanical keyboard.

We'll start with the graphics cards—since, apparently, PC gaming hardware is still in high demand.

  • Newegg has a Radeon HD 7950 on sale for just $179.99 after a $30 mail-in rebate. The card is an MSI model with an 830MHz clock speed (or 840MHz in Boost mode), four display outputs, and a beefy-looking single-fan cooler. It's the lowest-clocked model in Newegg's listings, but it's also the most affordable by a long shot. And, you know, you can always rectify the conservative clock speeds by doing a little overclocking of your own.
  • The e-tailer also offers a Radeon HD 7850 1GB from PowerColor for just $100.49 after a 13%-off promo code (AFFW85VGA) and a $30 mail-in rebate. I'm actually surprised by how deep that discount is. 7850 1GB cards used to sell for $160 or more just a few months ago. (Thanks to SlickDeals for this one.)

Meanwhile, in the ever-bountiful world of storage, Seagate's 4TB Desktop HDD.15 hard drive has gone on sale once again. Newegg will let you nab it for just $159.99 after a $20-off promo code (EMCXMXL22), which works out to just under four cents per gigabyte. The same drive is also on sale at Amazon, but it costs a little more there: $171.67. You can read our review of the Desktop HDD.15 4TB right here.

Finally, fans of mechanical keyboards should be glad to know that Rosewill's RK-9000RE is on sale for $74.99. That's the version of the keyboard with Cherry MX red switches, which have a linear response and no click upon actuation. Be sure to check out our review of the RK-9000RE and its siblings for more details.

North of the border, NCIX's Back To Summer sale in full swing. Among the items on sale are Kingston's 120GB SSDNow V300 solid-state drive, which is down to $94.99 CAD, and Metadot's Das Keyboard Professional Model S keyboard (with Cherry MX brown switches) for $109.99 CAD.
