I don't think Eric's point is about accessibility at all, but I believe that he was responding to the performance claims versus the 780Ti, and other GK110, etc.
It's convenient to pivot the argument to p/p, efficiency, and not completely unjustifiable, but his was point was strictly based on performance. For people who already have 780Tis, etc, the lower price of the new cards is irrelevant, as they already have sunk cost, and they will see no benefit by eating a loss in selling their cards to buy the 980, irrespective of the p/p of the new cards, it's efficiency or peripheral new features. This is just my opinion, as I would never make this trade....lol

Its worth getting hyped though surely?  These things are cheap as chips!

For $330 they are amazing.

Well, now I have to start saving up for a 970. I got my new Maximus VII hero and 4670k today so I'm all set for a GPU upgrade.

I'd be rather surprised myself if proper unlocked BIOS'es don't result in big gains just like they have for, well, every other card I can think of ever that has had them made tongue.gif.

Not sure if anyone has posted as I'm not going through this entire thread, but you can get $30 off $300 ordering through NeweggBusiness with code B2BC30V7 (new accounts only I think and one time use). The code might work for any cards available actually. Just picked up the MSI Gaming for $320 + shipping. http://www.neweggbusiness.com/product/product.aspx?item=9b-14-127-832

The other I haven't checked but if you spent more than $550 (980 territory) you get $50 off with B2BMLR55.

Just picked up my Asus STRIX GTX 970 tonight... Dunno when it'll be in stock on amazon but I hope it'll be soon... WOT Would probably increase in 1fps maybe..lol

Can't believe I haven't got a new card since college...
