Question

Posted

Hi all, I realize it may be a bit silly to make a thread just for this, but there's more to it than there will initially seem to be.

Just in general, no additional info, does this seem like a good price?

410.00 USD

for

(NEW) MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 N680GTX Lightning Graphics card

Graphics Engine
GeForce GTX 680
Interface
PCI Express x16 3.0
Memory Type GDDR5
Memory Size(MB) 2048
Memory Interface 256 bits
Core Clock Speed(MHz) 1110 (Boost Clock: 1176)
Memory Clock Speed(MHz) 6008 (3004x2)

considering it's twice that here in NZ yes I'd have to say that's a good price for nVidia but have you thought about going AMD Radeon HD7970 3GB

I don't know, what do one of those retail for (and performance-wise in comparison to the 680 2gb)?

That's the interesting part... a manufacturer in China. I'm wheeling and dealing and may get it even lower. Never tried this before, but if it works out I'm looking to resell, keep and inform others if I am able so they can get in on it.

Once things are somewhat confirmed and I am ready to proceed I can always use a little extra help verifying the integrity of the source. Here's hoping.

Not sure how the US deals with duties, but buying and getting something shipped to me in the UK from China will have a tone of import tax slapped on.

Video cards (duty-free)

And specifically this single item order would be shipped as a "gift" and therefore incur no duty fees.

GTX 690 for 710.00 USD Good price?
