[Amazon] Graphics Card Deals - GTX 560 $168 shipped, GTX 480 $250 shipped, GTX 570 $280 shipped

Zotac GTX 560 $168 Shipped

http://www.amazon.com/Zotac-GeForce-DisplayPort-Graphics-ZT-50708-10M/dp/B005KTM7BQ

I noticed there hasn't been a lot of great video card deals around the $150-175 mark so for those of you on a budget, this is a decent deal. I just ordered one that I am going to use for my DIY eGPU set-up.

It's not a TERRIBLY great deal, considering it's basically a GTX 460 in terms of performance, however:
It uses a LOT less power than the GTX 460 and dissipates a lot less heat as a result.
Most of the GTX 460's left at the sub $150 range are 192-bit and hence not as great of a deal.
If you can get a GTX 560 for only a few bucks more than a GTX 460 256-bit, then why not?

EVGA GTX 480 $250 Shipped

http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-GTX480-Graphics-015-P3-1480-KR/dp/B004EHWMP6/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1333308939&sr=1-2

This is a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, it's a very competitive card, essentially a GTX 570 in performance. However, it's a generation 1 Fermi which means it runs incredibly hot and takes a lot of power.

But if you want the best performance you can get for under $250, this is a hard deal to pass on. However, if you have $30 to spend upgrading, might as well get:

Gigabyte GTX 570 $280 shipped

http://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-GeForce-mini-HDMI-Graphics-GV-N570OC-13I/dp/B0056GJLA8/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1333309217&sr=1-1

For $280 shipped, you can get the performance of a 6950 or a 480 GTX with a lot less power consumption. It's also worth noting that the only reason Tom's Hardware doesn't recommend this card in its "Best Graphics Cards for the Money" review is because the price range was too high. However at $280 I consider it the best solution under $300.

I know these aren't HOT deals, but they're decent deals for people who need a card ASAP which is the situation I was in and why I ordered the GTX 560.

That 570 had a $20 rebate at the same price up until yesterday making it $260 AR. Now that would've been hot if anybody would've noticed it.
