I would accept that. Even at under just below $300 is still a very good deal. Would be the best "bang for the buck card of the year".

I also bought two MSI HD7950 Twin Frozr Boost cards for a total of $500 after selling game coupons for $25 each and two rebates $10 each.

As you can see, GTX660 should cost around $165 and HD7950 Boost around $250. Since video cards get a so called free bundle we are obliged to fork out a lot more money upfront.

Some here insist the garbage nvidia bundle with cards is good.

I wish they would just give me the price from the bundle off the card and keep that junk.

I would buy a new GPU so quick.

But then no huge $$$$$$$ for nVidia.

They still seem high to me! Hopefully in the run up to Black Friday and Xmas with the new generation of cards potentially coming out from both sides customers will be able to score some good prices on current gen stuff towards the end of the year.

Wonder how long before these price cuts make it across the pond here to the States!

The cheapest GTX680 that I see on Newegg is $440 + 4 shipping from ECS (lol, like people are going to buy from this brand) and the cheapest HD7970 is $400 ($370 AR) and it's from XFX which is way better than ECS. The GTX680 is still too high in price. And you also get Bioshock and Crysis 3 for free with the HD7970. thumb.gif

I can't speak for ECS but XFX is bottom of the barrel as far as quality goes...so it doesn't get much worse IMO.

Ha, hardly, but they can't compete if their prices are higher and yet not as good performance.
