Deal of the week: A hot-clocked GeForce GTX 770 for $235, and more
Welcome to another edition of our weekly deals post. The arrival of the GeForce GTX 970 and 980 has spurred massive discounts on their predecessors, so let's start with those:
- Newegg has a bunch of GTX 770 and 780 Ti graphics cards on sale for 15% off with promo code EMCWPPG33. Among them, MSI's GTX 770 OC looks like the best deal. With the promo code and a $20 mail-in rebate, the card can be had for just $234.99. And it comes with a free copy of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, too.
- Need a monster display for your new graphics card? Directron has HP's 30" ZR30w IPS monitor on sale for $699.99. That's not exactly cheap, but it's a good deal on this class of display. The ZR30r boasts 10-bit color reproduction (likely via an 8-bit panel + FRC), a 2560x1600 display resolution, dual digital inputs, and an integrated USB hub. (Thanks HardForum.)
- As usual, a bunch of SSDs are on sale today. Newegg has a whole collection of 'em for 10% off with promo code EMCWPPG22. There are some particularly nice options, like Crucial's M550 1TB for $422.99 and Samsung's 850 Pro 256GB for $179.99. PNY's Optima 480GB is down to $159.99 after a $20 rebate, too, but its user review are fairly negative. Folks seem to be happier with the 240GB version, which can be nabbed for only $79.99 after a $20 rebate.
- A stack of Mini-ITX mobos is 10% off at Newegg via promo code EMCWPPG38. For me, the standouts in that group are a couple of quad-core Bay Trail offerings. ASRock's A1900-ITX is down to $68.39, while its Q1900DC-ITX sibling (which is designed to be powered by an external DC power brick) is available for $89.09. Both have Celeron J1900 chips that scale up to 2.4GHz, and either one should make a nice foundation for a low-power desktop or home-theater PC.
