It's finally happened. I've succumbed to the scourge of bulleted lists. They kinda make sense for our weekly deals post, where there's little potential for a meaningful narrative. So, let's get started.
- System memory prices are rising, but Newegg has a sweet deal on 8GB sticks of Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3-1600 memory. The DIMMs are priced at $80 each, and coupon code NVEXCLS60 knocks 'em down to $60—a nice deal for low-profile modules from a trusted name. These puppies have reasonably low latency, too.
- Also at Newegg, Corsair's Obsidian Series 350D is on sale for $80. This microATX enclosure earned a TR Recommended award, and it normally rings in at $100. The windowed version of this case is on sale, too. It's normally priced at $110 but is $10 off right now.
- Need an affordable graphics upgrade? There's a hot-clocked MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB selling for $130, a $20 discount. And there's a $20 mail-in rebate on top of that. This card also comes with two free games from AMD's Never Settle Forever bundle.
- Yeah, yeah, another cheap SSD. But how can you not like Kingston's HyperX 3K 240GB, which is just $175? The drive offers good all-around performance, and its MLC NAND is more robust than the TLC flash found in some other drives in this price range. The HyperX has that snazzy bushed aluminum shell, too. Mmmmm. Brushed aluminum.
