$267.48 @ Amazon
That's not even a good deal for a 290, especially open box.
Especially for one that runs hot.
That's just expensive...
Newegg has Sapphire on sale for $278 with a $20 mail in rebate so $258. I just pick one up (triple x oc) - It does not run hot.
Not bad, I hate rebates though.
They are now @ $230.33
Follow the jumping prices. Now it's at $234.15
I don't know that much about this card but I know amazon stands behind their warehouse deals.
Mail in rebates do suck but ya do what you have too. The 290 is a good card (powercolor and sapphire have the best versions, in my opinion)
