GTX 580 DCII dropped from $510 to $430 on Newegg today

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This is a super quiet card I've been keeping my eye on as 680 has been causing the market to reprice. I was hoping for $399 or less but may pull the the trigger on this as I need a new GPU.

580 DCii and Powercolor PCS+ 7950 are tied for highest performing very quiet air-cooled-out-of-the-box GPU's right now. And the GTX 580 is now winning on price for anyone willing to give up 3 slots of space.

Obviously both cards can be had for a bit cheaper at the cost of higher dBa. Anyone think waiting another week will or two will see another substantial drop in price?

edit- 7950, not 7970.

Good deal, even has a $20 rebate and a FREE MUG AND SPOON! I've been needing a new Asus mug 'n' spoon. biggrin.gif

Probably should've been posted in the online deals section though.

Oh also worth mentioning is that for a while a week or two ago newegg had the Glaxy 580 with the arctic cooling AXP cooler (which is probably a little better than the DCII even) on sale for $370, that is probably the best deal for a quiet 580 recently. There was also that Gigabyte 580 with the triple fan cooler for $330 AR, but I don't know if I like that cooler as much as the DCII or AXP.

Galaxay 580 is a bit louder, but still very good option- thanks for pointing out. I hate that repricing is such a slow process.
