Hey guys price of the new ATI 7970 is as $748 to $770 for pre order in Australia, thats insane!
Have a look herehttp://www.auspcmarket.com.au/products/1943/
I'm shocked how much more we have to pay here , you guys in the US are getting it for approximately $500!
it does pretty much suck, how much we pay over here for some of our gear, even with the dollar at parity (or BETTER) !
Here is the 7970 at $695 - slightly better ( again, pre-order), but yeah, still a lot dearer than the US.
Might be worth buying online from there and shipping with insurance....
