    Looking for advice: Zotac 3070 and EVGA 3070 Ti are the same price - which do I get?

    If your PSU can handle the extra load of the Ti then I would definite go with the EVGA.

    Best Buy in-store FE restock, August 26th.

    The 3090s were the 2nd to last to sell out in my queue. The 3080ti's were dead last. The last 9-10 people before the cutoff only had one choice but they all took it. Probably because there was another 150 or so people behind them.

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    If Ebay will force a shipping refund then why does ebay ask the seller specifically how much they want to charge for handling when they list the item?

    The high shipping amount isn't a scam. They are trying to save the buyer's some sales tax. Ebay collects sales tax for the item amount and not shipping charges, at least in California.

    For $200 can I do any better than dual 660ti s?

    Nope. gtx 760 has a 1152 cores and 256bit bus vs 1344 cores and 192bit for the gtx 660ti.

    Fry's: Intel Haswell-E Core i7 5820K for $329 w/FS

    Except he was linked to a board that would cost under $200 with visa checkout. :rolleyes: BTW if a 6 core unlocked Haswell-E at $329 is overpriced garbage what does that make the i7-4770K and i7-4790K?

    Vid card under $75

    There was a guy selling a HD 7870 for $65. But looks like it was snapped up. I would look around that range. 7850-7870 or a GTX 650ti Boost/ GTX 660 if you are lucky. Post a wanted ad.

    [Tweaktown] R9 290/x price cuts begin

    Anyone actually running a $15 processor with a $200 video card is either stupid or doing it for kicks.

    Warm? Newegg Shell Shocker: XFX 290X $419.99-$30 MIR = $389.99

    This isn't even the best deal for this card today. Its currently $370 AR at Tigerdirect. Plus I think there's a $10 off for Tigerdirect floating around so it should be $360 AR.

    EVGA 780 GTX Classified $339.99 AR TODAY ONLY @ Newegg

    If the rumored GTX 960 comes out next month at $250 and offers similar performance it wouldn't surprise me to see 780s go sub $220.

    GTX980 for over 700USD?

    Last I checked MSI, Asus, Gigabyte and XFX (if you don't register) all have warranties by serial number.

    Should I sell my 6990 + 6970 to buy an nVidia card, and capitalize on the coin craze?

    Some people hardly pay anything for electricity. And a 6970 or unlocked 6950 are hardly slouches. They can pull close to 500k/hash with a mild overclock.

    You will get the best prices on ebay. But you have to factor in 10% fees and an increased risk of dealing with someone shady. You could also try selling on the F/S forum here. But expect a lot of lowball offers or they might try to get you to ship first if you don't have any heat. Just...
