My System Specs

lets see how it sells though. I'm thinking alot of people might consider it overkill since 92% game @ 1080p or less (according to Steam's latest numbers).

its to coincide with Computex in Taiwan, which starts Monday morning (Sunday evening EST). Maybe they want to steal a little thunder from AMD's imminent Polaris announcement?
You're looking at the wrong card for comparison.... the most recent comparison would be the 970 which had an MSRP of $329. This is $120 more which is a fairly hefty price creep even without factoring in the current exchange rate.

Bad enough enthusiast grade cards are north of $500, now the second/third tier (this is really a third tier card based on 970/980/980ti) cards are well north of it.
