Deal of the week: Graphics, power, and mice

We have a triple whammy of deals for you this week. To start off, while Radeon HD 5850 graphics cards remain marked up over the original suggested retail price, we’ve come across one that’s a little easier on the wallet. Our deal search has also yielded a 750W power supply and a Logitech mouse both going for considerably below their list prices.

Normally sold for $309.99 at Newegg, the PowerColor Radeon HD 5850 is now the subject of a $10 instant discount and a $20-off coupon code ("VGA462" without the quotes). Final price: $279.99 with free shipping. Not bad, especially considering how the 5850 holds up against Nvidia’s latest onslaught.

On the PSU side of things, Newegg quotes a $159.99 list price for Antec’s TruePower New TP-750 power supply, but the unit now comes with a $50 instant discount, and it’s eligible for another $10 off via the promo code "add10" (again, enter without the quotes). We’re already down to $99.95 shipped, and a mail-in rebate can take the price down to $79.95… if you fill in the form just right and sacrifice a goat to the rebate gods. Keep in mind we’re talking about a 750W modular PSU with an 80 Plus Bronze efficiency rating.

Last, but not least, the folks at LogicBuy have a code that lets you grab Logitech’s MX 1100 wireless laser mouse for $38.99 with free shipping instead of $79.99. Aside from the obvious, this mouse has buttons to adjust the precision of the tracking engine and switch from clicky to non-clicky scrolling. Logitech also includes a "stealth thumb button" that pops up an Exposé-style window manager by default.

    §[<<]§ I think the 5850 pcs+ is the better deal even at $20 higher... free shipping too... the cooler is fancy enough for the added cost and it's slightly oced too...

    In Canada, has the Samsung F2 EcoGreen 1.5 TB for $92.49 + $3.99 shipping. It’s a good deal.

    Antec just sent me a TP 750 RMA for sending in a Phantom 500. I’m pretty pissed they sent me this since I wanted a fanless PS and spent almost $200 on it.

    At any rate, rant aside, this isn’t a bad PS. Plenty of connectors, only real complaint is the cables are short.

    Wow the MX1100 is a very nice mouse for $39.

      Definitely buy. Best mouse I’ve ever used.

    Meh – Nothing here to get excited about.

    Wake me when the 5850 retails below $249 and buries Nvidia’s underwhelming cards in red ink.

      Sounds like we’ll have to move you to the coma ward.

        I predict we’ll be there within a month. It will be a short spell in the coma ward!

          We have a coma ward?

            I just came back, kind of cozy.

            That being said, I doubt we’ll see it below AMD’s current MSRP for a while at least, but I could see dropping back down to $260 easily.
