GTX690's a rip-off. Might as well get two GTX680's instead.

You're right, it's such a rip off, and that's why it's sold out everywhere. thumb.gif

Goodness...people are still beating up NewEgg and Nvidia on pricing of the 690? Sure I may think it's nuts, but that is my opinion. (said that already) However, people are going to see the worth of it and want it, obviously as NO ONE can seem to keep the damn thing in stock. Go to EVGA, sign up for the notify me if you don't want to pay the extra from NewEgg. Problem solved. Someone throw some scores up with they get it.

It's just like when I bought my CLS, the MB dealer wanted about 12K more than a non-franchise high-end dealer did, and the non-franchised dealer had more options on the car for less money. It was a no-brainier, rather than complain about the MB dealer gouging, I went elsewhere.

So, a $999.99 GTX 690 makes perfect sense to me. Because, it is only 1,256 NZD. A 291 NZD difference compared to just one EVGA GTX 680 (NZ bought). Luckily, my partner is visiting her mother in the states, and she will be bringing home a GTX 690. biggrin.gif Hope they have stock in two months' time.
PS. Anyone knows a good place to buy the DataVac? Thanks.

Try $2000 USD... http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=16702

This costs $500 more than two 680s here... Its ridiculous.

I'm happy with my 7970. biggrin.gif

yeah. total rip-off. that one cent difference between a 690 and 2x680 could buy you a car and a new house. seriously, there is one cent difference between the 690 and sli 680, 690 being the more expensive (!).

OMG!!! Have they lost their minds? haha...

Now, I only need to grab two or more GTX 690s and bring them back. And, undercut the crap out of them. lol.

Herd Instinct. It doesn't matter what Price/Performance value it offers if Human beings are like Cattle following the Herder/Flock. The fact that it's sold out doesn't signify anything else. It's the nature of how the human psychology works. I wouldn't also be surprised if Peer Pressure through various forms had an influence in the purchase of the GTX 690 or the so called 'e-peen value'.

Coupled with a low stock and quantities on hand and the marketing penetration and exposure for the GTX 690 it's not hard to see why it's out of stock. There are those trying to make it seem as if the GTX 690 is a revolutionary advancement when infact it is merely an evolutionary step forward.

I dunno about all ^^^ that (45nm's post).

It think it may have more to do w/the fact that they haven't made all that many of them thumb.gif

And then there's also the fact that it's by far the coolest-looking dual-gpu card ever (Silver and Black FTW), it's full of all kinds of upgraded parts ... and it's the first one that really rivals two of the top cards in SLI in perf, noise, and temps ... and at $999 it's the same price as two of the top cards, so it's not a bad deal from that perspective.

With as much novelty value as this card has going for it, all told, at $999 this card is pretty much made of Win. At $1199, it's not so sensible, but ... it's still cool as hell.

i don't work hard to make money lol.

anyways. the question is would you notice the difference in gaming by putting in a 690 compared to 590 if say i am already hitting 60fps? if it can make world and objects appear more circular on triangulations yeah i would buy it. it's only 1000 bucks. this is the thing i don't get.

i like dell because it's got warranty and pretty reliable. i don't mind the AG coating it's fine. maybe i'll pick up that shimian monitor for my mom since she put all documents on desktop and she's running out of space.

oh did you guys hear the 670 can beat 680? read that somewhere. only 400 bucks get 4 of those cost same as the 690 right now.

Pretty good sum-up, part is performance gains, but mostly it's the psychology part as you said. It's a long proven fact, the more expensive something is the majority of people equate it to being worth more or better. Most don't question anything about it, it's new, shiny, and some improved specs so the price hike must be worth it and justified. This method works with just about any industry/product, not even a debate numbers speak for themselves.

Seriously, when looking at the specs and performance gains between the 680 and 690 is the $500 increase REALLY worth it? Some will justify it in their minds so they won't feel bad paying the $1000+ for the card, for some well behind the 600 series the step will be justified in varied instances. I know about all the reviews, specs, the 690 is a dual GPU, etc. but that does not justify double the price of a 680 to me. That is just my thoughts on it, everyone will vary on their thoughts and opinions. I try to keep emotion out of the equation and look at things objectively and the facts.
