Hey Guys,

I am planning to upgrade my video card. It is an old ASUS EAH5850 TOP DirectCu.

I am looking at MSI R7970 Lightning Boost Edition but I cannot find it online on Newegg or Tigerdirect. I only see the Power Edition or reference cards 7970 MSI.

Are these discontinued?

I ordered a 7970 Lightning from Newegg late December, although it didn't state it on the website, I received the BE. Doesn't seem to be in stock anymore at newegg though. I'm not the only one. Another member here on the forums got one too as did some on the hardforum.

Are you ordering from the US Newegg site? I saw posts as well where this was happening, but never stated which newegg site they were purchased from. I contacted MSI and they stated:

Not possible, at least not sourced from the US.

Here is all of the US supplied R7970 models no BE version was brought to the US market for sale.
