Hey guys,
I just bought one of these... admittedly on impulse.
I saw it on newegg for much cheaper than I had ever seen it before. Right now it is $369 after mail in rebate and I've never seen this card below $470.
I am just wondering if I made the right choice here with the 6000 series being released soon and labor day right around the corner :-S. I was originally planning to wait a couple months to see if the prices would drop, but when I saw this deal I couldn't hold back!

Also, does this card fit in an antec 300...? What are your general thoughts about my purchase? Any owners of this card care to share some insight :) ?

That's a great card.
Well, that about the rest of your specs?
Previous card? Monitor?

I think it will fit on your Antec 300. Make sure you have enough power on your PSU... :)

There's plenty of them under $400.

Still a good deal though. Should fit in the 300.

Yeh.. looks like they are dropping the prices of all the cards in anticipation of the 6000 series.. msi is a very high quality non-reference card though. I was very surprised to find it under 400.
