This week for our deal post, we've got a trio of hardware deals and a trifecta of game bargains. Let's start with the hardware:
- XFX's Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Double D is available for only $187.49 at Newegg. The regular price is $249.99, but Newegg lets you shave 15% off with a promo code (EMCXRTW26), and you can lop off another $25 via a mail-in rebate. Keep in mind this card also ships with free copies of BioShock Infinite, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, and Tomb Raider—and free shipping is available, to boot.
- Corsair's CX500 500W power supply is down for $29.99 at Newegg after a $10-off promo code (EMCXRTW22) and a $20-off mail-in rebate. (Shipping is also free.) This PSU has 80 Plus Bronze certification, a beefy 12V rail rated for 456W of output, and a three-year warranty. That definitely sounds good for 30 bucks.
- Samsung's 840 Series 120GB solid-state drive can be nabbed for $89.99 shipped at Newegg, if you enter the $10-off promo code EMCXRTW23 at checkout. The 840 Series may not be the fastest SSD around, but it's still leagues better than a mechanical hard drive, and it's an excellent choice for an inexpensive system drive.
On the gaming front, Amazon has a few oldies on sale:
- The Alan Wake Collector's Bundle for $3.50.
- The "Complete Edition" of Grand Theft Auto IV for $7.50.
- A bundle made up of Max Payne 3 and L.A. Noire for $9.99.
- ...and L.A. Noire by itself for $7.50.
These are all downloadable Steam games, by the way, so there are no optical discs or annoying content distribution platforms to deal with.
Our friends north of the border can't partake in the deals above, but they can enjoy NCIX's Part II Super Sale. As part of the sale, NCIX is offering free shipping on orders over $50 and up to 100 lbs until tonight at midnight, Pacific Time. There are too many discounted items to list here, but I'm seeing some particularly tempting offers, like a 3TB 'cuda for $119.99 CAD and a SandForce-powered Mushkin Chronos 120GB SSD for $89.99 CAD.
