Yes Its good news for buyers. Unless you were one of the guys who bought 3 weeks ago... How'd you feel if you bought one at release and its worth 300 less 3 weeks later.

This is why I painfully waited an extra month to make sure I wasn't buying a GPU till the red camp released their weapon of choice.

That price of $428 won't last long. It is a special promo to get them moving. I'd expect that to be back up over $500 once the dust clears. Still a great price if you have the $$$ and need a card now.

Very impressive price, almost tempting, however IMO it isn't needed with games (except Crysis) yet.

Couldn't resist.

$444 w/ free shipping less $20 a few months laster = n7 pulls the trigger.

Should get the card sometime next week i imagine.

Haven't been this excited over an upgrade for a long time.

Sweet. And now that BFG has their 100-day tradeup program going... So what's BFG's policy on aftermarket heatsinks/waterblocks?
