I think it's messed up how NewEgg is screwing people on 7900 Series returns.

If you're not exhanging it, and just returning it (to buy antoehr brand 7900 at the same price for example).

They will Deduct $169 from your Credit for the price of the "Promo Codes"

the promo games should not be deducted, they are promo codes from AMD, not newegg.

if you pay $409 for the card, you should get $409 worth of credit, They should not be taking away the value of each game.

the coupons arent in the GPU Box this time around either (least mine werent, they were stapled to the invoice).

So when they ship you a different brand, the warehouse guy should have a note to NOT include a Promo Card with the invoice.

but yeah, the AMD Promo Games, are a GIFT for buying an AMD Card, AMD foots the Bill for those, not NewEgg.

So they Cannot Take off the $169 for the promo. you paid $409 for the CARD. the Promo was deducted from the invoice and given to you as a GIFT.

They arent in the Box, they are stapled to the Invoice when they are packed... They should be able to look up your original invoice, issue a return credit for $409.
Scan out the other brand model for $399, and then delete the Promo Code line from the invoice before they send it to be packed.


I've been seeing too many friends trying to return DEFECTIVE 7900 cards to exchange brands (at the same price point), but New Egg insists on taking the $169 off their credit for the used code card. So a $399 Card gets you $240 worth of credit when returned? and if you buy another one, you're gonna get the same damn Promo Code Cards again anyway.

so do a charge back through PayPal or credit card company then.

It's even worse if you already have / pre-ordered some of the games, lol. That's the reason I shop with Amazon, they just don't care or they'd rather eat the code and have your continued business in the future tongue.gif.

Yeah newegg tried to screw me also I accidentally ordered the wrong card, tried to rma it and they tried to take the 169 off. So I said screw that and then ordered the original card I wanted and crossfired them. Sure it cost more money but I don't like when companies try to screw someone like that.

Okay so I've decided that I'm going to pull the trigger on the Gigabyte Windforce 7970, however the only thing I'm questioning is the power draw. My PSU right now is a Corsair GS600 (600w) and on newegg the Gigabyte Windforce 7970 requires 550w and the Gigabyte Windforce 7970 ghz edition requires a minimum of 600. Am I alright in getting the ghz edition?

it's fine, i ran a GTX 580 off a 550w. Mind you, a QUALITY 550w. Fatal1ty OCZ 550w to be exact.

Im running mine off a Antec 620w HCG, you're fine. They tend to overinflate PSU requirements so people with crap PSUs (aka, the 750w that's really a 600w) won't sue AMD or Nvidia cause their "GPU" did it but it's their crap PSU that did it.

You're fine mate, your PSU is enough as HD7970 GHZ pulls ~ 210W , not more.

Non GHz HD7970 pulls ~ 165W..

CHEERS..

It can run Crysis..
