Yeah it's odd. The cards do appear to be otherwise identical - odd about that sticker though; I wonder why they would cover it up.
Thanks NickLe btw for the link. It looks like this is the only retailer right now that sells them. Newegg, NCIX, Canada Computers and the others do not seem to have these any more. There's only 1 left it would seem as you have noted.
I'm going to be moving soon, so I'd best not order anything right now. Plus right now I'm leaning towards a 7970.Edited by CrazyElf - 4/20/13 at 1:09am
