Got a gtx 570 for 299.99 :( Goodbye my beloved ATI/AMD

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
After much thought and research, and knowing I would never utilize eyefinity and wanting to try out physX and cuda. . . been a radeon user since the 9700 pro, time to get a taste of green! =)

Found a GTX 570 on newegg today for 299.99 after 30 dollar mail in rebate and -$20 promo code (the zotac gtx 570 for anyone interested) has lifetime warranty as well! I took the plunge and bought it! It was either that or a 6950. . . but it seems the 570 at the same price was a no brainer for me.

So I hope I made a good choice and upgrade from my 4870X2.

Good times. Excited.

Good to see you are trying new things...I think my next card will be on the green side. Ive switched every time ive bought my cards. Ive been happy with both companies so i guess ill just keep going back and forth.
post #5 of 37
congrats , it'll be a nice upgrade

i would have waited for an open box asus 570 though, they just had them for $270 shipped no rebate

let us know if that zotac rebate ever comes in lol

open box with ASUS is 90 day warranty only. I think $30 more for a new card with lifetime warranty is worth it

May I be the first to say... why in the ATI forum? I am not hating, I am doing the same (selling 5970 for GTX 580 and then will get another GTX 580) but why post it in the ATI forum. I am supried no one has said **** or something yet....

I am just saying maybe you should've posted this in the NVidia Forum?

asus (and MSI) warranty goes by serial #, so it doesnt matter how long newegg warranties it
