Microcenter has the Galaxy GTX 670 with the 680 PCB on sale for $349 + tax, Should I buy now or wait for even lower prices?

That's a superb deal on a really strong card. If I had a desktop, I'd jump on that in a quarter of a heartbeat. wink.gif

That is a great deal. I just picked up the EVGA 670 FTW a week ago for $429.99 but that deal is even better. I have a Galaxy GTX 480 kicking around somewhere and that card was great. I say go for it.

I'm coming from the evga gtx 260 in sli. First I bought a zotac 670 reference, it didn't overclock for poop so I returned it. Then I bought the gigabyte 670 windforce, but it increased temps in my case to much with that fan design, so I'm hoping this will be the card!

I upgraded from 480 SLi and this card is almost as fast at that setup.

The biggest thing about this card is that it is quiet and cool. Mine rarely tops 60C and is able to keep the fan speed down. But even at 80% fan speed I can barely hear the fan. It is MUCH quieter then the 480.

I bought that card on monday for the 349.99. Amazing card, it clocks to 1260mhz core 6500mhz mem. I sold the borderlands 2 code that comes with it for 40 bucks as well. I posted this deal in the online deals section and another member was awesome enough to post links to a rebate on that card so it is only 329.99. Here is the link to the rebate, and it does not matter where the card was purchased. http://images10.newegg.com/uploadfilesfornewegg/rebate/SH/Galaxy47MIRsOct1Nov1112ey39us.pdf

I picked one up a couple days ago from Microcenter for $349.99. Im coming from two amd 6970s in crossfire. I was finally fed up enough with AMD. This card is such a killer deal. At this price I was able to afford a nice waterblock for my water cooling loop. The OC on this card is insanity. Im in love.

Pretty decent.

7970's are cheaper though
http://slickdeals.net/newsearch.php?firstonly=1&q=7970

670s are to be had at this price NORMALLY (for us slickdealers!)
http://slickdeals.net/newsearch.php?firstonly=1&q=670

If you can find an e-tailor (spelled wrong?) without tax, wait for them to go on sale (like amazon, us CA people now have tax) on slickdeals with a deal alert.
