Deal of the week: A GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB for $140, and a 256GB SSD for $150
We have a trifecta of deals to share with you this week, two of which we snagged from Newegg's ongoing Columbus 4-day sale.
- EVGA's GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB is down to $139.99, or $129.99 after a $10 mail-in rebate. The card's price got cut from $169.99 to $149.99 on Monday, and it's already come down even further. Our latest value charts show this is the best deal in that price range by a long shot—even better than AMD's newly released R7 260X.
- Toshiba's Q Series 256GB solid-state drive is on sale for $149.99. We haven't tested this drive ourselves, but what we see on Newegg's product page is encouraging. The Q Series has a 6Gbps SATA interface, rated transfer rates of over 500MB/s for both read and writes, a three-year warranty, and a five-star average out of 51 reviews.
- For your external backup needs, Seagate's Expansion 3TB hard drive is available for just $99.99, provided you enter the promo code "EMCWXWW53" on the checkout page. This is an external USB 3.0 model that fits inside a slick black casing. The one-year warranty is a little short, but $99.99 is cheaper than the typical asking price for internal 3TB drives, so we'll take it.
That's all for our U.S. deals. Our readers in the Great White North can peruse NCIX's Thanksgiving Sale Event for Canadian deals. (Yes, Canadian Thanksgiving is on Monday.) Bargains there include a 4TB Seagate Desktop HDD.15 for $169.99 and a 120GB Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB solid-state drive for $88.99.
