Default Us 275 for 6970 xfx v1.1

Is this a good deal? And a good upgrade from a 6870? I would get the lifetime warranty

MSI 6970 lightnings are selling for $300 so that is a little high, even with warranty.

The one you are referring to sold. So is the xfx one a good deal or are there others?

I'd keep looking, that MSI was a premium version, plus had warranty for not much more.

I wouldnt go for it. It's not really a good deal. It's not that much more powerful than a 6870 plus new cards are just around the corner.
