Default GTX 570 $269 : Good deal/Would you buy?

So my 8800GTS 512 crapped out on Saturday and I need a replacement card. Vuugo has the Zotac GTX 570 on sale for $269 this week, which seems pretty solid, especially considering it has a lifetime warranty. I have searched kijiji/rfd/here for used cards and came up with nothing.

So the question, would you buy this?!

Edit: Forgot link:

Buy ZOTAC GeForce GTX 570 GDDR5 at Vuugo. Speak to one of our Customer Service Representatives for more information!

Looks like a pricing error to me, it should have a $30 MIR. But if it's not an error it's definitely worth a buy, regardless of the inferior power delivery on the 570's.

No MIR shenanigans, no pricing error lol. And yea, the power issue is essentially the only issue at the moment. I'm tempted to maybe buy a temp card until the next gen stuff comes out but who likes to wait?

If I was already looking at getting a 570 and wasn't planning to overclock it would be a no-brainer...however if I wasn't in the market for a GPU arround this price range then it wouldn't be enough to steer me into getting one, if u know what i mean?

For a temp card you could get a cheap 460 and oc the snot out of it or spend a little more and get a 560Ti and oc the crap out of it... but I would prolly just go for the 570. I own two and oc them both to 900mhz with 1.1v FWIW.

seems a good buy, and since you could not work with 2 GTX 460 in SLI due to power supply limitations, seems the best compromise.

starting to see 570 at sub $300
560ti being low to mid $200, I wonder if it's worth to get cheap 570 instead of 560ti....
