    If you are looking for a bit of new storage for our box, Amazon has a smoking deal on the Samsung 860 EVO 1TB drive that brings it in at 29 cents a GB. While that is a great deal for a great drive, Samsung is throwing in a free copy of Far Cry 5 for the next couple of days as well. You can check out our Far Cry 5 Video Card Performance Review as well. You likely will not even need a new GPU to run it with high IQ settings.


    Free Far Cry 5 PC Game code with eligible Samsung SSD Purchase (Buy select 1TB, 2TB, or 4TB Samsung drives). Valid 3/4/2018 - 4/28/2018, while supplies last.

    Amazon will send you the code if you buy from them. I bought a 1tb 960 EVO last week and got my code once the drive arrived. No worries.

    With an asterisk next to in today's market. I bought a 1TB EVO for $250 a year or so ago. But the prices on these drives haven't been going down.

    It's actually $28 cents a GB right now, as the price is currently $279.99

    Is the Far Cry 5 code redeemable on Steam?

    Wouldn't mind an un needed FC5 code... but it's no big because I haven't really played the previous ones. Game didn't strike me but I have been digging origins and want to give it a shot based on that alone.

    Thanks Kyle for the heads up. Can't afford it right now but still a good deal for a Samsung 1tb or 2tb($429 from their site).

    I'm so tired, I was thinking "29 bucks sounds like a pretty good deal!" lol.

    By tired, I mean dumb.

    FYI - in the UK, it seems the 500gb version of the 860 evo is included - and can be had for £125 off amazon (linked direct off samsungs offer page)...

    http://www.samsung.com/uk/farcry5/
    Would have pulled the trigger on it, if it wasnt for the fact that on Amazon sale days the 500gb 860evo dropped down to £100ish anyway

    No, you get a code and you put it into Samsung's redemption website and then it will activate in your uPlay account. No steam.

    44$ for import fees into Canada? That's a big nope. It's even worse that they are charging 5$ more than the typical conversion from USD to CAD on Amazon.ca.
