Buy a MSi GTX780 TF OC for $389?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Too late, I already picked one up from Micro Center for $389. Its a Twin Frozr OC Edition 3GB. Came with AC: Black Flag plus Splinter Cell. Your thoughts? Should I keep it or wait a bit more longer?

I would keep it for that price.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you get it for that price?

Open box.

They had a bunch of different 780's hovering around $390-450, due to people buying them at $600+ only to find out nvidia just lowered the prices. Mine wasn't even opened or taken out of the case. I also saw an EVGA 670 for $139, and other great deals. Best store ever. The thing is, I just sold my EVGA 780 a month ago for $620, which I also bought at Microcenter for $550 (open box). biggrin.gif

Here is a pic.

Lol thats awesome. I just checked a few stores in my area but unfortunately no luck with open box items. Well one does have a 780 open box but its priced higher than the new equivalent tongue.gif

You have to have a MC store nearby. I don't think they ship, and quantity is limited, obviously.
