Deal of the week: A Radeon HD 7950 for $190, and other bargains
We've got a nice mix of hardware and game deals for your this week, including a steeply discounted Radeon graphics card:
- Newegg sells HIS's Radeon HD 7950 HIS IceQ Boost for $189.99 after a $65 instant discount and a $15 mail-in rebate. The card has three gigs of RAM and a beefy, blower-style cooler that exhausts air directly outside the case. It's also eligible for the Gold Reward tier of AMD's Never Settle Forever promotion, so you can pick three games out of a selection of nine titles. Even excluding the mail-in rebate, this is a steal.
- Newegg also has discounts on Core i5-4670K and Z87 motherboard combos. For instance, you can nab the processor with a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H for $369.99 instead of $429.99. The i5-4670K is a quad-core, quad-thread Haswell chip with an unlocked upper multiplier. Check out our Haswell review for more details.
- Still not played BioShock? Amazon offers Steam codes for all three BioShock games in a $19.99 triple pack. You can also buy a dual pack with just the first two titles (BioShock and BioShock 2) for $4.99. Not bad, especially since ordering BioShock Infinite directly from Steam will set you back $39.99 right now.
Our Canadian readers can't partake in these deals—well, unless they have a guy across the border who can smuggle things across for them. Luckily, NCIX has plenty of Canuck-friendly deals up for grabs in its Fall Clearance Super Sale. Among them: a 4TB Seagate Desktop HDD.15 drive for $169.99 CAD and a 120GB Kingston SSDNow V300 solid-state drive for $93.99 CAD.
