Deal of the week: Radeons, memory, and Devil's Canyon
This is actually our second deals post of the week. Our first covered discounts on Crucial's new MX100 SSD, most of which have since expired. However, Newegg has the 256GB version for $104.99, which is $5 off the suggested retail price. If you don't mind waiting 2-4 weeks for the drive to ship, Amazon is selling the 256GB for $99.99 and the 512GB for $199.99. Amazon doesn't seem to have either in stock, so you'll have to browse the alternate listing to get those prices. Right now, the main Amazon page has pricier TigerDirect listings that are available to ship immediately.
Now, here are some fresh deals:
- Newegg has hooked us up with a couple of coupon codes that knock 10% off select Asus Radeon R9 270X graphics cards. This 2GB version normally sells for $209.99, but discount code TR6WK1 cuts the price to $188.99 before a $10 mail-in rebate. The 4GB variant starts at $239.99, coupon code TR6WK13 reduces the price to $215.99, and there's another $10 MIR on top of that. Both cards have dual-fan DirectCU II coolers and higher-than-stock GPU frequencies. They come with two games from AMD's Silver rewards tier, plus free shipping.
- System memory prices remain higher than they've been in the past, but Newegg has a nice deal on Adata XPG DDR3-1600 4GB memory sticks. The modules are marked down to $39.99, and there's a mail-in rebate good for another $10 off, bringing the effective price down to only $29.99. The rebate is limited to two per household, so you should be able to grab a couple of modules for a dual-channel config. These puppies have tight 9-9-9-24 timings, run on 1.5V, and come with short heat spreaders that won't interfere with larger CPU coolers.
- If you missed out on Borderlands 2, now's a good time to catch up. Newegg has the "Game of the Year Edition" on sale for $19.99. This version includes the standard game plus four DLC packs: Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, and Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. So, more Borderlands, then.
- This next one isn't available online, but if you live near a Micro Center location, you can pre-order the Devil's Canyon-based Core i7-4790K CPU for $279.99—$60 off the official asking price. Micro Center doesn't say when the chip will be ready for pick-up, but I'd expect it to be available fairly soon. Devil's Canyon official launch window is June.
That's all for this week. If you've spotted any deals we've missed, feel free to add them in the comments below.
