Deal of the week: SSDs, PSUs, and motherboards

Valentine’s Day approaches. As you lavish your significant other with flowers, chocolates, and hand-written coupons for various, ahem, favors, be sure not to forget your PC. Computers needs love, too, and there’s no better way to show it than with a hardware upgrade. Newegg is running a big Valentine’s Day sale that’s brimming with tempting options.

Let’s start with the SSDs because, well, that’s what I’ve been immersed in for the past couple of weeks. My favorite deal is on Samsung’s 830 Series 128GB, which can be had for as little as $185 after entering the promo code EMCNHJN24. That includes a copy of Batman: Arkham City, so you’re getting a lot more than one of the fastest SSDs on the market. If you’re partial to Indilinx, the OCZ Octane 128GB SSD has been discounted to $180. The drive comes with a $15 gift card, and a mail-in rebate cuts an additional $20 off the price. Another sweet SSD deal is available at Buy.com, which has the Crucial m4 128GB on sale for $158.

Newegg is showing some love for motherboards and PSUs this week. Corsair’s TX650 PSU has been cut to $90 before a $15 mail-in rebate. An additional $10 can be slashed from the price using coupon code EMCNHJN23. Enter coupon code GAMB210216, and you’ll get 10% off select Gigabyte motherboards. The best deal on that front is probably the GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3, which has already been dropped from $170 to $150.

Not to be outdone, NCIX has a Sweetheart Sale Event with discounts on a wide range of PC components. Cheap SSDs remain popular, and the Kingston SSDNow V200 128GB can be had for only $120—no rebates or coupon codes required. The same goes for Benq’s 120Hz XL2410T 23.6″ LCD, which serves up 3D Vision-ready pixels at 1080p for only $270, $100 off the usual asking price.

Of course, there’s really only one way to show you’re truly committed to your PC. Newegg sells this lovely tungsten carbide ring for only $20, a discount of $230. Just be up front about the fact that you might want to see other systems in the future.

      Stop whining. We pay 20% TAX on everything except fuel duty which is like +150%.

    Can’t resize tungsten rings, so make sure you get the size correct :p

    I have a tungsten ring with a gold inlay, but it’s actually full tungsten instead of “black metal” around it. It has a mirror finish, and it doesn’t scratch. I’ve had it for almost 8 years now, still looks nearly new(gold has minor scratches, but is mostly hidden by the “brushed metal” look).

      I recent got cheated on, first valentines without my fiancee for 3 years. I plan on drinking enough alcohol to make Charlie Sheen have serious concerns about my health.

      Still, i got a bad apple and until about 2 weeks ago i would have joined you in the “life is sweet!” posting.

        That’s a tough one … I feel for you.

        But, you should thank your lucky stars that you didn’t end up going the whole way and get married before you found out you got a bad apple.

          That’s the only way to get past it
