its 265 with 13% and -20 = 245$
thats an 'okay deal' price tag for a 660 Ti but this outperforms a 660 Ti.

Plus shipping 10 plus express rma 7 or half insurance 3, plus tax. So for me it was 280 shipped to me. Ill wait as prices shouldcontinue to drop before next gen in a few mobths ( i guess).

Outperforms 660TI on stock and it can overclock like a beast just the 79xx and beat GTX670 and near 7970 performance. :cheesygri
I never got the apples to oranges comparison of overclocked cards vs stock cards.

decent little card for the price.

My gtx 670's at 1300mhz murders every stock card money can buy....but thats unimportant.
Screw Canada Computers and their BS pricematch LIES!

Hi all,

Not sure if this is considered "HOT" deal, but never saw mention/discussion of this card.

This is TAHITI LE which is based on a 7970/7950. It's performance is right between a 7870 and 7950 but its price at 7870!

Outperforms 660TI on stock and it can overclock like a beast just the 79xx and beat GTX670 and near 7970 performance. :cheesygri

Reviews (same card, different brand:
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Club ... LE/31.html (Overclocking results)
http://www.kitguru.net/components/graph ... tahiti-le/

uses a 3 heatpipe direct touch heatsink. (cool & quiet)
Also, it can be crossfired with 79xx series cards!

$235 - $20MIR = $215
Dunno if this has been mentioned in the thread yet but it doesn't actually outperform the 660TI stock. Did you even look at the benchmarks you linked?

Also look at the difference here: http://community.futuremark.com/hardware/gpu

It might be worth it for the money still, but that claim is just wrong.

Link to one review (preferably more) that proves your claim?

Would this be a worthwhile upgrade over a 560TI 2GB? or should i wait.

MIR is still on but I'd wait for a better name brand. Even if it's the reference design, PowerColor has a very bad track record QA and part-quality-wise.

(in fact, when you consider that many of the good name brands *don't* use the reference design, that in itself should say something...)

Not really, 560Ti is still quite recent.

With the next-gen GPUs releasing soon,the price of this card crossing $265 (ON) and the lacklustre brand as well as the fact that this card isn't that much better than the 660Ti, this deal is rendered (pun intended) moot ... for me.

Still a decent card tho.

EDIT: This card is a lot better than the 560Ti but it's still better to just wait.

Depends how long you've had the 560Ti.
If you just got it, stick with it, if its a year or older, get it, its quite a big jump

Did you look over the first link. like always it depends on the game and the resolution. The 660 ti and the 7870 Tahiti, not the 7870 in your link, are closely matched and at $215 after mir you can't find the 660ti at that price range. And if you oc you get similar frame rates to a 7970 for a lot less.

The free game offer is still on but not the 20% discount, right?

"Free game offers expire March 31, 2013 or when supply of Game Keys is exhausted, whichever occurs first. Medal of Honor Warfighter Digital Deluxe 20% discount will expire on December 31, 2012."
