$750 AUD???? Are you kidding me?
I'm not sure, maybe 1 or 2 months. If you can't wait I'm really not recommending anything yet for a 7970 really from pccasegear... By the way if you are not bothering to get reference cooler, you can get this instead of that $750 business...http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1309&products_id=19122
HIS cards are fine, they should at least overclock to 1Ghz at decent temperatures.
That's a cheap price here in Australia.
You should see the GTX 590's
They aren't as bad as they were a few months ago, but they're still pricey.
It's ridiculous considering the aussie dollar is worth more than the greenback.
Probably going to go with the Gigabyte, just for the awesome cooling it has. I can then further overclock it.
