Thread: $ Steal-Deals $

  1. #1

    $ Steal-Deals $

    Here I will post items ridiculously below value. I encourage others to as well.

    General Guidelines:
    • Should be 50% or more below MSRP INCLUDING SHIPPING - items should be steals, not just deals
    • Items should be something a fair number of people would find useful (bad ideas: voice recognition software, PCB boards, automatic awnings, etc.)
    • Please use a clean format
    • Please strike-through the text or otherwise show a deal as done when it's no longer valid.


    One item per post, nothing off-topic, please.

    EVGA GeForce 210 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

    $5.99 after MIR (free shipping)(good until 12/26/10)

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

    Would it be better to get a nice mobo that can handle xfire and hookup two of these guys to it and get some of the other benefits of a nice mobo, or would it be better to go no xfire and get a single 1 gb video card that end up costing around $60+?

    Crossfire is ATI-specific. Nvidia uses very-similar SLI technology.

    Many people believe 2 bridged gfx cards will have 2x the performance. This simply isn't true, and because memory isn't shared in SLI/xfire, you'll be more likely to be limited to low-res textures & faced with game crashes in more demanding games. There are also many games which experience extraordinary graphics bugs if you are using SLI/xfire. Aside from that, in xfire/SLI you're going to get ~20% less performance as you would if you purchased one card with the specs of the other two combined. That said, there are still some instances in which SLI/xfire is more cost-efficient than purchasing a single card, especially if you're pairing up two midrange cards and need the performance of a high-end card. If I'm not mistaken, though, power consumption of two bridged cards will consume significantly more electricity than one card of double the specs.

    And with that said - the killer -- 210's aren't SLI-capable, anyway.

    I generally don't like paying more than bargain-bin prices for motherboards, anyway, though, since the additional features usually have no practical impact on what I want to do with the hardware. I think I've only ever had two motherboards fail on me - the first because it was in a very moist and hot environment, the second because I spilled liquid on it and it wasn't in a case.

    That depends on what you plan to use the PC for, your budget, and what you're comfortable with or more inclined towards.

    When running more than one graphics card, depending on the card of course, it could cost more wattage in the electric bill -- TDP figures are one thing to look at, which is basically the max wattage it is designed to use under full load (idle wattage is much lower, particularly on newer model cards). My personal opinion is that having a single card looks more graceful, depending on model could use less power, and is better for overall airflow and temperatures in the case. Two cards, especially if too close, get hotter than one card.

    There's a ATI Radeon HD 5750 1 GB 128-bit GDDR5 at newegg for $90 with free shipping. Not quite a steal, but it's a very decent mid-range card, and you'll only need one.

    There are some awesome deals on Steam right now. Most are through January 2nd, but there are some Christmas day only deals. They have game packs for 80% off, and it includes a lot of good games. They have a pack of all 2k games (except Civ 5, of course) for $80, off from $425. They also have a pack of all THQ games for $50, off from $400. Tons of other deals that you might want to take advantage of if you play games at all.

    This is a bit late for Christmas, but http://www.humblebundle.com/ was offering a bundle of video games and letting you set whatever price you wanted to pay. They will be offering new bundles with a similar deal periodically. Bookmark the site or sign up for email alerts if video games are your thing (or would make a good gift for someone else).

    You can designate a portion of your purchase to charity such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) which is pretty cool.

    Those familiar with AMD won't be surprised by this....

    Own a Radeon 6950? It was recently discovered you actually own a Radeon 6970. Unlocking the shaders (through a BIOS flash of the card) is safe and works on all makes.

    GALAXY GTX 460 768mb

    $89.99 after MIR, expires 1/6/11 (typically $150-250)
    http://www.frys.com/product/6434002?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

    A quick note: This video card is oversized. Many cases will be unable to house higher-end modern video cards -- it's very unlikely to fit in a PC built for non-gaming purposes by a name-brand manufacturer. (Lucky for me -- I don't believe in PC cases!)

    P.S. If you're relatively tech-savvy but don't keep up on the difference between a 7800 and 460, or know what the hell a "GTX" is, http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php? offers very detailed & helpful specs in a format which allows you to compare it to one of the many other cards they have in their database. Specs are not always accurate to every make of a video card model, but usually quite close.

    Assuming the Mrs has a bank account, you could get her to open an ING account, then add your name to it.

    As as to not derail your thread: AMazon has a Hasbro Toys deal - spend $20, get a free toy worth $10. http://amzn.to/gmoBNH - I am loving those Littlest Pet Shop things, but two teen boys apparently have no interest in those, - we own the big Nerf machine gun though - it's stayed popular for a couple of years now.

    DeLonghi EW7707CB Oil-Filled Portable Radiator with ComforTemp Technology, Black - $49 with free shipping, plus a $10 rebate brings it down to $39? Seems reasonable to me. The reviews are positive....

    That's a very interesting website. This deal in particular caught my eye: http://www.fiverr.com/users/lapo/gig...ref=glst-g-ttl

    It's a kid willing to distribute flyers all over his college campus for only $5.

    Also a surprising amount of whoring going on for $5 :x

    For owners of Android, iPhones, or Blackberries, you can receive $10 iTunes credit for installing an application on your phone & desktop, then uploading 1gb of data to Apple's backup service from your desktop. Uploading up to 5gb is free and I don't believe there is any type of monthly fee (I don't have a smartphone, so I can't verify).
