I fell for it as well. I kept refreshing the front page only to find out the review wasn't up yet. I'm so excited for it.

The r9-290x card has to be something really nice for a good price-performance ratio, cause NCIX has a ZOTAC GTX780 for $590 after MIR in tonight's sale! It's a sign!
Want a tease? Let's play Carrot And The Stick.

Here's the carrot: After tonight, you'll look at the price and say it's ludicrously expensive.

Here's the stick: There is no stick.

Damn, i bet you its going to beat the shit out of any card out there right now. I just sold my 670 for 180, i know they will be much cheaper after tonight. I also sold my 680 that i just bought for 200. I do have one card left which i cant sell, need it for troubleshooting purposes. To all the card holders, sell your shit now, you got two hours, otherwise, you will be screwed.
