[DirectCanada] NE: MSI 7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC - $284.99 (AR)

More offers from DirectCanada

Newegg is currently selling the MSI 7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC for $304.99:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.as ... 6814127667

Use this $20 rebate to bring the cost down to $284.99.


You could try PMing this at NCIX to take advantage of their $30 MIR, but they'll DENY you, claiming "below cost."
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=70088 ... FMicroStar

Things to consider:
- Directcanada, NCIX's sister site, was selling this for $309.99 the other week. So for NCIX to counteroffer $329.99 against Newegg's price is pretty ridiculous.
-Shipping not included.

That cards speed is: 880MHZ 3GB 1250MHZ

Others in the same range are: 1000MHZ 3GB 5000MHZ

3GB is nice, just seems slower?
It's 880mhz/5000mhz. The stock 7950 is clocked at 800mhz, and most pre-overclocked options remain at or under ~900mhz. Many 7950s have no trouble hitting 1000mhz with adequate cooling, so this point is kinda moot; MSI's Twin Frozr cooler is one of the best custom cooling options out there.

This is faster than anything else out there in the sub-$300 price range.

Based on my previous PM experience with NCIX, chances of them approving the PM is very slim. IMO best to buy it outright from Newegg since the MIR is not retailer specific.

I've only been denied a PM once for a motherboard that wasn't in stock ;P I've spent over $10 000 in NCIX.

My friend did get denied an insane PM for a 1TB SATA3 for $54 though :D

NCIX has no stock anywhere for PM. I bought an MSI 7950 OC for $272 AR from ME last week, so this price is not surprising.

Still in stock at Newegg.ca, and back in stock at NCIX. Both the $30 NCIX specific rebate and the $20 all-retailer rebate are good through the end of August.

To be fair, that card has the stock 7950 cooler. I think the extra $3 for a good custom cooling solution is quite worth it.

It's really a YMMV with PM at NCIX/CC. Unlike ME, they dont honor their PM policy with their BS "below cost" excuse.

Not sure if you meant to imply that prices were going down but actually the prices on the 79xx/78xx/77xx have gone up (slightly) in the past few weeks. I'm not sure if it is AMD catching the wind of 660Ti performance/price or what .. we're talking about the 660Ti here; http://forums.redflagdeals.com/geforce- ... n-1214786/

I don't think you'll have trouble with this particular PM at NCIX. Their sister company Directcanada had the same card for sale @ $309.99 the other week, with free shipping. If they're willing to sell for $309.99, then I'd think they'd be willing to do $304.99 as well. But yeah, YMMV.

If I get two of these can I crossfire them? And would that run three monitors? Thanks.

Assuming your mobo and especially your power supply can properly handle them, yes you can crossfire, but FYI you can run three monitors off of a single card.

7950 > 560ti, not to mention 3GB of memory vs 1GB.
