$213 isn't bad esp. if it was reference..(I see reference go for $160-$180) but $126 for a 7870 is a much better deal.

If they gave you a 390 then they should have no issue replacing his with a rebrand as well

I thought it was bad, I just simply said for that money it would be hard to replace it with something else and asked if I could just get a different model. I would have taken the money if they had nothing else and looked for a good deal on something else, but I thought they low-balled me by a bit.

Yeah I'd take the money. You spent $107 on a 7870 when a they go for $70~$80 shipped on ebay. The MSI offer gives you a free ticket out of your original deal and come out ahead with $19 profit.

EVGA offers some nice refurb cards with 1 warranty occasionally. Check their b-stock page. There was even a 780 kingpin for $150 yesterday.

I mean I would have taken the money if offered $213 and wouldn't have said anything else. Good non-reference 290's seem to go for $200-$210 this past week so I would have been fine with that.

but.. IF I were given the option to take a 390 then yeah that is a no brainer lol.

I mean, the guy said he'd pay for the card being shipped to RMA, so taking the cash would net me some extra I guess to cover the headache. Also noticed I typo'd 290x in a previous post, meant to type 270x lol, yeah, that'd be greedy. Kinda starting to lean to take the cash instead...sigh. It's the better deal I guess in my scenario, I just hate having to take another chance on a used card.

You can barely get $80 shipped for a 7870 these days. Even if you spent $14 shipping them the card, you are still getting the better deal by taking the money.

You could take the money and buy a 7970. You guys in this thread clearly don't know the used market very well.
You don't get the point. He asked for support but looks like MSI has no stock of old 7870's so can't replace it. That's not his fault,he shouldn't accept any money less than what in this case,the original buyer spent or a free upgrade to an equal performing card,in this case the 270X. It work's like that almost everywhere. That's how once i got a free upgrade from a 7870 to a 7950,Amazon was out of stock for that particular ítem,and they just offered a full refund for the original cost.

It's not like trying will do him any bad.

Maybe getting the 126 would be good if you can buy from OCN,Hardforum marketplace or reddit hw swap, a hd 7970

Or you could get the r9 270/x and then sell it for 120-140 and get a 7970
Wanted: [WTB] GPU upgrade

Then you sir, would not have gotten a 'free' upgrade in both clock speed and VRAM capacity and (maybe?) and extended warranty [390s are newer, so their serial #s should be newer, which hopefully means longer warranty!]!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Sometimes you just gotta ask for more, literally the worst that happens is they say they can't do it and then you accept their original offer. Sure, you may lose some time waiting for responses, but it seems pretty worth to me.

Yeah. Right..

270X won't sell for more than $80 shipped either. He should take the $126 and buy a 7970, but if they offer him a 270X then that would be less hassle.

But honestly, my rig is in my signature. I'm not sure what good a 7970 would do me, unless I upgrade in the future. Hell, I didn't see any changes in FPS in csgo, other than being able to max out the graphic settings, fps stayed still around 100-120 (which seems a bit low even for a q6600, but that's just me) However in BF3, went from 30fps to 60+, so that was nice. Feel the card being messed up screwed with the FPS some too tho

You could take the $126 and put it towards upgrading CPU/mobo/RAM to like a 2500K setup for probably around ~$180 (cpu/mobo/ram)
