With the announced price drops on GTX 970/980/980 Ti it seems some cards are dropping in price like crazy:

ASUS TURBO-GTX970-OC-4GD5 Video Card

$249.99 - $30 MIR = $219.99/shipped

TURBO-GTX970-OC-4GD5 - Newegg.com

Just throwing this out there, I know nothing about the good/bad/ugly on this model.

. . . and with that my 970's went off Craigslist and into my HTPC. If I was only getting offered ~150 before, they're worth even less now (not to mention the AMD cards coming).

I totally agree. I pulled the cards off Craigslist and put them in my HTPC instead.

Going from a GTX 760 to GTX 970 SLI in that computer actually made me want to use it again!

(Sorry for going way off topic!)

I understand you but man people aren't going to get $200 for a used 970 anymore... The R9 480's price surprised a lot of us..

Also for anyone considering this card should look away. I had one and the fan never stops spinning, on top of that it wasn't very quiet either.

and this is the price that the base 970 should've been...about 250...

just like the base 1070, shouldn't be more than 270-300...

I might be right behind you. A check of my area on CL today shows the 970 listing at $250-$265. It was $275-$310 a few days ago.

I'll aim for $250ish for mine until the 480 comes out, and if no dice, I'll keep it until Vega, sell it for cheap then, and go with the bigger upgrade.

if the 1070 was in that price i would pick up two the used market would fall more and amd would struggle to contend with their rx series.

PSA: I had the GTX 960 4gb version of this. I had to edit the bios to get the fan to spin 100%. The stock bios would allow up to around 70% max, probably due to noise.
