Was able to nab an Asus reference after the e-mail notification *DING'D* on my iPhone. I ran upstairs and ordered one lickity split within the 10-20 minute window it was in stock haha.

I didn't really like paying the tax however. I was watching Amazon forever after their price adjustment to $559.99, despite remaining out of stock. Oh well, I guess I'll just write the tax off as overnight shipping. Paid normal shipping but I live nearby and should get tomorrow. I like Tiger Direct. I got my Corsair GT's from them and got it fast. Just that they only have 2 brands I didn't care to order at this moment.

Aye, that tax is a killer. I had 4 on order from Newegg and the tax and shipping totaled almost half the cost of a single card ahaha. I was like screw that, I can wait for that sort of cash. C'mon Amazon!

Ya I ordered 2 MSI 7970's last Friday as soon as they posted them. Time will tell but it appears that the package me be heading to a wrong address.... rolleyes.gif. Also UPS screwed up with my guaranteed 3 Day.... Its going to be 4 Days... Talked with Newegg and I can get a shipping credit. I have ordered so much stuff offline being in the motocross scene, never would have guessed this would be happening. I will remain strong for my 2 babies to show up smile.gif ! My antec 1200 is ready for them thumb.gif .

Yeah these cards are epic, kind of reminds me of the 5870. Overclocked above 1.2ghz these things are blazing fast. Most will do 1.2ghz
post #1007 of 38704
Will they do that on the stock cooling? I downloaded asus gpu tweak, are you guys using this? and increasing the gpu clock and leaving the memory clock alone? I have never OC'd a video card before.

I also had another question that maybe someone can chime in on.
I just bought my 7970 from microcenter. I debated between the XFX and Diamond flavors. I went with the XFX flavor because the sales clerk stated that it came with the lifetime warranty. Well, now after reading through alot of this thread It clearly does not have the lifetime warranty. Also, the card model number is radeonR7970 Core edition. Now is this different the say the HD 7970 reference cards? I cannot even find the Core on any retailers websites, nor can I find mention of a core edition. No win gpu-id it lists it as an HD7970. The core edition did not come with DP adapter, just a hdmi to dvi.
I am thinking I should return the XFX and the dp adapter I bought and get the diamond, for the 5 year warranty and the included adapters, for the same price. Any thoughts?

The Core edition is just the standard 7970. It only has a 2 yr warranty. You should find that sales rep and kick his arse, hehe jk. I canceled my XFX Core cards from Newegg for the same reason, well that and the massive tax when you get more than a few cards.
