6gb 7970 DISCONTINUED!!??

I was planning on getting a new GFX card in the next few moths and really had my eye on the "Sapphite Toxix Vapor-X 6gb 7970". I was going on newegg every week or so to see if the price fell at all and when I looked today they are suddenly DISCONTINUED :cry:  :cry:  :cry: 

What gives? Does anyone know if the ywere planning on releasing a different version? Or were these some type of special limited edition cards? My second choices are either a 4GB GTX 670/680. But man ireally wanted that 7970.

Ya I know that card was a power hungry volt sucking beast but I could see myself now. using my current GTX 570 for PhysX(OVERKILL) and running that beast with a hefty overclock throwing every Skyrim Mod known to man at it until my 27" 1080p monitor simply exploded from the life like GFX it was being asked to display :bounce: 

Anyone know if the will bring them back??

If you can afford it go for a hd 7990 devil 13 card from powercolor. Either way why do you want 6GB of memory that is way too much for any game.

6 gb ??? its way too much unnecessary !!!!!you won't find any additions in the game you mentioned at highest detail over a standard hd 7970 or even a hd 7850.
It should be a wastage of money.Even if you were like in a idea of futureproof you will be like pulling out your hairs out in 1-2 years when new technologies come out , my friend.The vram does not really matters.all matters is the GPU clock /amount of pipelines / CUDAcores / stream processer which differentiate a gpu's price . Otherwise every 2 gb or 1 gb DirectX 11 card would be equally priced - from 5450 to 7850 !!!1 :D

by that time the nex gen cards might be released already or shortly there after... might be worth the wait.

i think you would need 3-4 of these cards to get gpu power able to utilize so many
but then the question is how many monitors with how many MPix you want to feed from these beasts

You only have a 1080p monitor and you want a 6gb card? You would be lucky to use 2gb of that card... Don't waste your money... Vram =\= performance.
