Deal of the week: Graphics, RAM, PSUs, and games

Let’s kick off this deal post with Nvidia’s new GeForce GTX 660 Ti, which we reviewed yesterday and featured in our latest system guide.

A TR’s Editor’s Choice winner, the MSI Power Edition version of the card, is currently on sale for $299.99 after a $10 mail-in rebate at Newegg. Assuming you get the rebate check in the mail, that means you’ll wind up paying the same for a reference-clocked model—but the Power Edition runs at 1019MHz, up over 100MHz from the reference 915MHz. It also features a great dual-fan cooler, which we found to be pretty quiet in our testing, and it ships with a coupon for a free copy of Borderlands 2. (The game is due out on September 18 and will likely sell for $59.99.)

Corsair’s CX430 power supply is also on sale. Normally listed at $44.99, the unit can be had for $5 below list price using the promo code EMCNBJF33, and Newegg offers a $20 mail-in rebate on top of that. Final price: $19.99 with free shipping. Not bad for an 80 Plus-rated 430W power supply. Not bad at all.

Speaking of Corsair, Newegg offers the company’s 16GB DDR3-1333 ValueSelect dual-channel kit for just $79.99 shipped, so long as you enter the promo code CORS817 on the checkout page. This kit is made up of two 8GB modules rated for operation at 1333MHz with 9-9-9-24 timings and a 1.5V signal voltage.

Finally, we see Newegg has a physical copy (remember those?) of Batman: Arkham City on sale for just $9.99 shipped. The same title costs $29.99 on Steam right now, so if you don’t mind dealing with physical media, that’s a steal.

North of the border, NCIX’s Back 2 School sale is in full swing. You can nab WD’s 3TB Caviar Green hard drive for $139.99 CAD and OCZ’s 128GB Vertex 4 solid-state drive for $99.99 CAD after a $10 mail-in rebate, among other bargains. NCIX has MSI’s GTX 660 Ti Power Edition on sale for $294.99 CAD after a $15 mail-in rebate, as well, which is slightly cheaper than at Newegg.

    Thanks for the Arkham City tip. In for one, definitely worth it, even if I don’t get to play it until a rainy day.

    [quote<]so if you don't mind dealing with physical media[/quote<]I'll deal with anything as long as I don't have to give it loads of attention, let it know where I am and what I'm doing at all times, or ask it permission to spend the money that I earn.

      [quote<]I'll deal with anything as long as I don't have to give it loads of attention, let it know where I am and what I'm doing at all times, or ask it permission to spend the money that I earn.[/quote<] That's exactly the problem I ran into with Arkham City a couple of weeks ago, when GFWL refused to log me in. No helpline listed on the Windows Live website, no human who could fix it for me, and an online account reactivation page that locked me out after the third try. Even though I finally got my account reactivated, the entire experience soured me enough to never buy a GFWL game again. Fortunately, retro and indie games came to my rescue, (re)played Ultima V, Star Control II, and currently playing Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery (yes, I know I'm late to that party).

        GFWL or an overbearing spouse……I believe I’d choose the latter

      Huh…when did you meet my wife?

        Haha! You kill me.

        I really don’t like women either! I mean, they always act so stereotypically like women! What’s up with that?

          For you classic movie buffs, this matches Jeff’s sentiments exactly:

      I like my physical media. I own it no more than I do the Indie games I buy on Steam (which, I don’t own jack squat). But I do like to proudly display my dvd’s and video game cases on the shelves. It somehow helps me feel justified in the amount of cash I’ve spent on them…

      You still own your software if you download it, aside from the chumps who believe anything you tell them in a EULA.

      Oh, and two middle fingers up to your arrogant throwaway insult to people arguing against “renting” your software. You are the reason we have stuff like:
      [quote<]Games purchased direct from Ubisoft or via Uplay only have 30 days to be downloaded and installed, if you want to re-download after that date you have to purchase an extended download insurance.[/quote<] Download "insurance". How much more mafioso can we get?
