This weekend sees the arrival of several Columbus-day-discounted items from most online retailers. Given the current deals on computer hardware, we were able to find a PSU, motherboard, 650 Ti Boost video card, 128GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD, and Corsair Carbide case on sale.

EVGA 500B 500W PSU 80+ Bronze ($30): After a $15 MIR, this 500W power supply drops down to $30 total. An 80+ Bronze certification means that the PSU is -- given the price -- relatively power-efficient and supplies enough for most budget gaming PC builds.

Corsair Carbide 300R Mid-Tower ($65): Corsair has become known for their intentional avoidance of big, plastic pieces of flair and heavier focus on a cleaner, more business-class look. This also means more of the unit's cost goes to higher-quality materials, improving overall quality of the enclosure. The 300R is currently on sale for $65 and includes 1x120mm exhaust and 1x140mm intake fans.

ASUS M5A97 AM3+ Motherboard ($90): If you're looking to build an AMD system (like our recent $558 one we posted over here), this mid-range motherboard gets you started with a 970 chipset and basic CrossFireX support. It's nothing too flashy, but at $90, it's a great choice for budget system builds.

Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD ($130): Samsung's 840 Pro SSD has proven to be one of the top-performers on the market right now, ranking right up there with OCZ's high-end Vector drive. The drive is discounted to $130 after using the coupon code TWX102748 at checkout.

Interion High-Back Mesh Chair ($115): This is a bit different. A chair is (hopefully) not something you put in your system, but it's still an important part of any gamer's setup. This high-back office chair uses a web mesh to better conform to the user's back; use coupon code UIW103150 at checkout.

Pick of the Week

Galaxy GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB ($150): After recent price-drops by nVidia to compete with AMD's new GPU platform, the 650 Ti Boost is now easily found at $150 clean for the 2GB model. The card SLIs incredibly well (outperforming 1x760) and offers a serious punch in the budget range, with good upgrade options should you decide to SLI in the future. Ships with $25 of game credit for F2P games.

That's all for this weekend - check back next time for more sales.
