That's a hell of a steal. Will definitely be hitting up this deal, thanks! Perfect timing considering my OCZ Vertex 2 just took a crap the other day.

Shame it's not a UK deal as i'm sure i would of taken advantage of this as i still haven't worked out where i will be buying Far Cry 3.

Also, does this mean FC3 benefits from being installed on an SSD, sound like that from their comments.

I feel you man. Prices there are outrageous. My friend is in the UK and I am going to send him a couple of stuff I get on Black Friday for him.

Small box flat rate shipping is about $16, so I'm getting him some SSDs I get on sale.

What's the difference with the 840 vs 840 Pro? Will there be any noticeable affect while gaming?
