"Hey mom, can I get a new graphics card?," Johnny asked. "What's wrong with integrated graphics?," mom joked back. "I'm kidding honey -- you're due for an upgrade, let's set your budget at $160." Johnny took the money and even feigned happiness with a forced smile, though in the back of his mind, he knew that wasn't enough loot to get a burly graphics card. Or so he thought. A few minutes on the web is all it took to turn his forced smile into a giddy grin. What did he see? He checked out today's top deal for the MSI N660 GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Card for $160 with free shipping (normally $200 - use coupon code: [EMCPEWA44]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate).
