Should i wait till Black Friday for a HD 7970?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got the budget to buy two of them, must be reference design to watercool 6 months from now. (i want to make sure they are okay before i break the warranty). Right now the cheapest viable option is 267$ on newegg. Do i wait for black friday or jump on this?

DECISIONS.

and yes, the only option i would consider is the 7970. According to TomsHardware the 7970 is on par with the GTX680, cheapest one being $360. please don't make this a AMD vs NVIDIA thread.
