Somewhat of a risky purchase because of what AMD is suppose to release in the coming weeks, but it's an amazing price for an amazing card (currently).

Edit: Seems like a price error after all. Sorry everyone, move along. :(

This is still a good deal if you want an nvidia card which can run almost everything at 1080p on ultra.

Even my 960 runs everything pretty well and it's an entry level card

I think it's best to wait till benchmarks for the AMD RX 480, which should be the end of the month.

For now this is a great deal. Most people estimates R480 to be below a 980, but price wise this is still fairly competitive. Definitely risky if you are future looking. Considering it is only a week or so to go for R480 real release.

Finally more realistic price. Much better than buying used on Kijiji. :)

The newer card will be faster and uses less energy right?

I wonder if we could PM these at NCIX. The price is going way up once you add it to your cart.

This looks like a great price even considering that Polaris will be out very soon.

The RX480 will destroy the 980. Vendors like Sapphire has already confirmed their cards to hit the 1.5GHZ.

Preliminary benchmarks show that the cards are faster than 980's already.

It will be interesting to see if they have enough supply on launch. The hype around this card is starting to get unreal.

Might still be price matchable if they don't bother adding it to cart. It shows the stock on the item page so they might not

I'm hoping they will because I am desperately waiting for this card. My system needs an update.
