Same. I opened up the forums and saw this thread and immediately opened the HWC homepage....then opened this thread to see it was a false alarm.

Clock-speed tease.

SKY,

We're waiting!
You're such a tease!
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! :biggrin:

Also, they have a notice on their banner..SOMETHING BIG IS COMING AT MIDNIGHT!!!!
