Of course a lot of people stand behind AMD. They make great cards.

The problem, though (and you can't deny it), is that the vast majority of the uneducated masses are taught to think that AMD is inferior, and they vehemently believe it. I used to work at an electronics store, and it was shocking how many people simply thought "Nvidia is better."

I was going to pick up 2 MSI gaming GTX760s but the prices never dropped so I went with the MSI R9-270Xs with the same exact cooler. Saved 120.00 doing it. Nvidia should have dropped the prices over the entire line to better compete with the pricing that AMD has from the start. thumb.gif

He does not have to wait 3 days to get his GPU from newegg, that's why tongue.gif. Buying from newegg will still take time to ship.

Because they charge tax for California, Tigerdirect is better choice since they dont charge tax. Usually tax kills the deals for me on newegg.

Nope they dont have a price beat thingy, just exactly matched it from newegg, 539.99 with free shipping smile.gif

And also if it drops when the 780Ti is out they have price protection for a month I believe.

Actually I am like 10-15min away from the newegg pickup center lol. I could have done will-call, but I dont wanna pay 40 something dollars of tax so I'll just wait till it comes from TIgerdirect thumb.gif

You have to give a call to the customer service, they will easily match newegg. The thing in the US if the retailer has warehouses in your state they have to charge you tax, because Newegg has one in California they charge me tax. But since TigerDirect doesnt have on in California I dont get tax charged.
