Frys has the ASUS 7970 listed on their site, photos

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I am pissed, gouging us for $599. Will you pay more than the $550 these should cost or wait?

EDIT, for those who will some advice on Frys. Even if it is out of stock I understand they ship from the internet first, then ship to store inventory. If these are hard to get online orders will ship first. At least this was true with the 5970 back in the day when it was hard to get. YMMV

Since the 7970 has similar performance to a 6990 then it's also similar to 6950s only it has an advantage bc no xfire issues and more VRAM

There are a lot of people past that consideration and want one. My question is to those people, how much over MSRP are you willing to pay?

600 is what I figure they'd go for at first due to stock, but some how I don't think there will be a stock problem like with the 6970/50s and the delay due to vrms.

I saw a ASUS AMD 7970 on sale on Newegg two days ago for $600 and then looked back today and it was removed. May have been premature to release so it was pulled. I think that price is going to be the rate we can expect from the other vendors as well for the reference cards. I have a feeling the MSI Lightning AMD 7970 version may end up going for about $680.

For whatever it's worth, my buddy owns an internet e-tailer and drop ships all their videocard sales from Ingram Micro. Their cost is $590 for the Asus. Maybe Asus's MSRP isn't $550?
