Why is the GTX 770 Lightning so hard to find?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Now, before anyone starts screaming it's available on newegg, I live in Europe (Belgium) so the fact that newegg has it in stock helps me just as much as some random Australian shop having it in stock.

Anyway, so my 560 Ti is balancing on the edge of death and I am going to replace it. I had my eye on the MSI GTX 770 Lightning, however it is pretty much impossible to find a shop that actually has them. The ones that do engage in massive price-gauging (think €550 for a €430 card) so that isn't really an option either. Any European OCN'ers experienced the same? Or am I alone in this and completely out of my mind?

edit: just noticed Caseking.de has them in stock.

It's essentially the same card as 680 Lightning. You could just buy that.

They also sell it here : https://www.4launch.nl/shop/#p-4-productid-140578
Delivery time would be around 10 days though.
