[TPU] Radeon HD 7970 Price Cut to $475, From $525 - Page 4

post #31 of 88
I just got my GTX560 which is more than enough for me, still I'm going for one of these bad boys! Just to juicy!

I would purchase 2 when my IB build takes place if the price was $475. At $550-600 as they will sell for, I probably won't even purchase one.

Agreed. These cards will quickly sell at $550.

I already sold my GTX580, will update sig when I see what cards come out and for what $. I hope I can wait a few months for things to shake out. Bough an open box GTX460 for $92 to pass the time.

Nimrod, not off of me, I'll let the fool pay the difference.

I sincerely hope they get the multitude of crossfire issues ironed out though. I had nothing but trouble with every Crossfire array I owned after paired 5870's and ended up going Nvidia. I wouldn't mind going back but AMD will have to put out a driver that doesn't make me want to punch my $600 monitor occasionally.
When I see a price cut, that usually means the competing company knows competition is near. I wouldn't be surprised if Nvidia has a big announcement soon on at least their mid range part.

Yes!! by dropping price they will not only make more money but also pressure the competition (Nvidia) to lower prices!



What's ultimately in it for me that I am on a budget but I'd like to play BF3 on Ultra with AA and I'd use the savings for rent and books for college.

*sigh* further research has led to

You know, you should apply for a job at AMD, since you clearly understand how their business model works.

No? Not at 2560x1440/1600 or 3d vision/eyefinity resolutions.

Cards are getting so powerful they need to remake that curved wide view monitor they made when Crysis first came out. That was like triple 30in eyefinity but with no bezel's.thumb.gif
