Ah, if you go into the post office to ship they give you a form to fill out. If you do it online, I believe the print off is just a bit different. IIRC you still declare values and what not though. It's been awhile since I've shipped international.

Yeah, it's been something like 5 years since I've shipped overseas. Mostly not worth it for me due to shipping costs nowadays. I remember when I shipped my old Xigmatek Elysium for $15. devil.gif

If you can wait then get either RX480 or 1070 depending on your budget.
If you need a card RIGHT NOW then get a 390 8gb.Nothing else makes sense.

Mind you 1440p is 72% more pixels, and if you are only at 60 hz on 1080p well, you only need a 4th of the power. An RX480 would kill 1080p for many years to come.


Iv been wondering the same thing.
I sit on 90fps everything maxed 1440p on devision,
Doom everything maxed 1440p 140fps
3dmark 11 performance 28.8K gfx score. on 1300mhz 980ti.
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/11280328

Then there reviewers stock and 1450mhz 980ti does.
60 / 70fps devision
60 / 90fps doom
19K / 24K 3dmark11

--

RX480 will be the card to pick up, Ill be getting one or the RX480x to upgrade the wife's 7970 ghz rig, And maybe zen to upgrade 1090t.

I think you are mistaken on the 3d mark. Most 3d mark tests 19k/24k are 3d mark firestrike. Not 11.

So are they discontinuing a ton of their products? That makes the 380, 380x, 390, and 390x all significantly worse than it while being the same or much higher price. There are some cheap 380s that are under 200 I guess, but they are still making 3 products that are a year old or less completely pointless and might as well withdraw them from their line if the RX480 is really that good. Well really I guess they are all like 3 or 4 years old, but we won't get in to that here.

Wait for the RX 480. AMD R9 xxx cards has aged far better than the NVIDIA 900/700 series. NVIDIA's like the Apple in the GPU industry. They release new drivers that are tend to focus on optimizing the latest series and **** the rest. My advice: Buy a used R9 390 now if you can't wait or a brand new RX 480 next month for only $199. Either card should last you a couple of years if gaming at 1080p60 with the Ultra preset.

OP is severely limited on options. A highend GPU like that will cost way more than his/her budget. 9xx dropped in resale value immensely with the Pascal hype.

I got 3x GTX 970 on SLI, that's almost 5000 CUDA Cores, it is just a notch under 2x 1080's and far less expensive I believe, NVM those posts claiming days of GTX 970 are gone, i personally thought of swapping my cards with the 1080's, but after finding almost NO difference in terms of cores, and ridiculous amount ill have to pay on new cards and selling my cards, i decided to ditch this STUPID thought and just go ahead OC them once i get the waterblocks ordered...

really i see many of you jump into new products as soon as they arrive (even pre-order them) without rational thinking or good judgment, guess Nvidia is happy with many consumers being this way !... redface.gif

as for the performance part, they are top notch really, only game can't handle Ultra + (AA) is Crysis 3 (and ya that's 4k !!) while I still play it Ultra Settings PERIOD with FXAA instead of AA and on 4K monitor, can't complain !!.. other games will be eaten alive on 4k pushing their limits to absolute MAX settings without a hiccup thumb.gif

can't really imagine how thing will turn after water cooling and OC them thumb.gif

And what about most of the newest titles barely supporting SLI these days?
