PCG is way overpriced at the moment and they will be not dropping in price for a very long time going by the email i got from them when asking them about it. if your in no hurry just hold out and check ebay till something good comes along theres a few listed everyday.
There is a galaxy
listed from the place i got my evga for 600$ delived. after u pay for your 7970 to get delived which im guessing you will it will only be like 20$ difference.
It would still be a $50 difference. Not sure where you got a 680 for $550 here, but I've been checking the bay and have never seen a reliable
seller selling a decently priced 680.
Btw Pccasegear aren't OP, look at gamedude if you want dodgy pricing haha. Everyone complains yeah, but everyone complained about the 6970 as well. I never experienced a single hiccup, hell I've never had to uninstall drivers or anything. I really don't understand the fuss tbqh.
Also, i'm not buying a 2nd hand card, whats the point buying 2nd hand when I have no idea if the previous owner has probably nearly killed it and is getting rid of it because it's screwed. Nty
Thankyou all for the input.
edit: they're $750 on ebay. Not sure how you can slam PCCG when they're $50 cheaper.
