Asus GTX 970 Available and at $379.99!

Hello Guys & Girls,

Did you wait for long to purchase Asus Geforce GTX 970 OC edition and found very few sellers with stock? Did you try multiple times a day with Bots like nowinstock.net like me and felt disappointed or found the price hiked up by the ruffians? I was like you. Today, I walked into Tigerdirect at Woodbine & HW 7 (in Toronto) for buying something else and casually asked a sales rep Chris if he had one in stock (their Online search system does not even show Asus GTX 970!) and this friendly guy went into their storage area and brought one for me - I was shocked! I was even more shocked that it was listed for $379.00, not for $449 like NCIX.ca or $399 by CanadaComputers). Immediately I bought one and asked him how many more he has. He said at least 10! So if you are fast and desperate, rush there and grab one (and thank me!). So don't be fooled by the Websites. Perhaps you may find some in your own locations! Enjoy the card!

What deal are you talking about? I did ask for the anniversary discount and they said it is for select items only. I will wait to open the Graphics Card after seeing your reply!

Pretty good deal considering the limited stock at this time, I'm waiting for the G1 with just a little lower price point, I'll give it to like end of the year, not in a hurry.

By year end, you are bound to have more options and better prices for sure. But if you need it urgently, my suggestion is a good option.
Talking of options, did you see the latest Mini-ITX from Gigabyte? See
