Deal of the week: SSDs at 55 cents a gigabyte

If you haven't already blown all your money on a new iPhone 5 (then immediately regretted it because of the broken Maps app), then good news! There are some lovely solid-state storage deals available at Newegg today.

The e-tailer is letting you nab OCZ's Vertex 3 240GB for only $132.99 after a $20 mail-in rebate and a 10%-off coupon code (HARDOCPX919A). That price includes free shipping. You're looking at a final cost per gigabyte of just 55 cents, which is pretty darn cheap for a state-of-the-art SandForce SF-2281 drive with Serial ATA 6Gbps connectivity and peak transfer rates north of 500MB/s. (Thanks to Slickdeals for the heads-up on this one.)

Those who still haven't succumbed to Gearbox's Borderlands 2 will be happy to know that the game is still on sale at Amazon for $53.99, or 10% off the regular price. (Steam charges $59.99 right now.) The game already has a strong following, with an 89% Metacritic score and a user score of 7.9/10.

North of the border, NCIX is prepping for the cold(er) weather with its Fall into Savings Event. Aside from the usual cornucopia of deals, the Canadian e-tailer offers $4.99 ground shipping on orders over $50 and weighing in at under 100 lbs. NCIX lets you grab the 120GB Agility 3 for $69.99 CAD after a $15 mail-in rebate, which actually beats Newegg in the States by five bucks. WD's 2TB Caviar Green is available for only $99.99 CAD, too.
