Everything I've read makes it look like a steal. Too bad BFG isn't making one.

I was thinking about picking two up. SLI for $500 thats a deal. Especially since ive seen everyone getting like 1.1ns ram.

IT is a steal... Ugh, I want one! haha<br><br>
Too bad I'm saving for my Conroe build right now :-\\<br><br>
Would this even be worth buying for a build I'll be doing next spring? Or will better tech be available for a reasonable price at that time?

Price keeps rising. Greedy bastards at Newegg. It was $245 yesterday, $250 about an hour ago and now $260.

</div>This rumor is not true. A Evga rep was over @ XS saying they are not refurbs. They also if you notice have AR at the end of the part number. The AR suffix was given to the second wave if 7900 series cards. Plus its illegal to sell something refurbished as new. Its called false advertisement, they would have to sell it as a refurb.

Its a badarse card and a month after they came out I seriously contemplated getting one, but mine plays almost every game on the market on either max or close to max settings....so ill just wait for DX10<br><br><br>
NICE FIND THOUGH! I have the money to throw at it, its just....well....other things are cooler then that card....like think of how many movies I could buy with 254 dollars!!!!
