Welcome to another edition of our weekly deals post. The arrival of the GeForce GTX 970 and 980 has spurred massive discounts on their predecessors, so let's start with those:
- Newegg has a bunch of GTX 770 and 780 Ti graphics cards on sale for 15% off with promo code EMCWPPG33. Among them, MSI's GTX 770 OC looks like the best deal. With the promo code and a $20 mail-in rebate, the card can be had for just $234.99. And it comes with a free copy of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, too.
- Need a monster display for your new graphics card? Directron has HP's 30" ZR30w IPS monitor on sale for $699.99. That's not exactly cheap, but it's a good deal on this class of display. The ZR30r boasts 10-bit color reproduction (likely via an 8-bit panel + FRC), a 2560x1600 display resolution, dual digital inputs, and an integrated USB hub. (Thanks HardForum.)
- As usual, a bunch of SSDs are on sale today. Newegg has a whole collection of 'em for 10% off with promo code EMCWPPG22. There are some particularly nice options, like Crucial's M550 1TB for $422.99 and Samsung's 850 Pro 256GB for $179.99. PNY's Optima 480GB is down to $159.99 after a $20 rebate, too, but its user review are fairly negative. Folks seem to be happier with the 240GB version, which can be nabbed for only $79.99 after a $20 rebate.
- A stack of Mini-ITX mobos is 10% off at Newegg via promo code EMCWPPG38. For me, the standouts in that group are a couple of quad-core Bay Trail offerings. ASRock's A1900-ITX is down to $68.39, while its Q1900DC-ITX sibling (which is designed to be powered by an external DC power brick) is available for $89.09. Both have Celeron J1900 chips that scale up to 2.4GHz, and either one should make a nice foundation for a low-power desktop or home-theater PC.
