  1. S - Zotac GTX 980ti 546.57 +FS after Code + waived return shipping

    I used that promo code and got a fury X for 540 after the 50 off and 9 from using a debit card. The debit thing isn't sketchy as retailers pay less in fees when a consumer uses a debit card. Although depending on the CC you may get purchase protections so YMMV on that.

    Half Of All Software In Brazil Is Pirated

    I've been there and this is very very true. I my old company had an office down there which I visited on several occasions. They have a huge import taxes to try and promote in-country manufacturing and development so everything imported has massive taxes sometimes approaching 100%.

    From Sapphire 7950 Vapor-X 3gb to 780 Ti or R9 290x?
