Unfortunately, the prices there weren't any better there for the 770 with mwave at the top for the lowest price, leaving little extra incentive to opt for that.

However, I was very lucky to have found that PCCASEGEAR was offering an EVGA GTX 670 FTW for $30 less than the ugly gigabyte card I was forced to go with earlier. This is pretty much the Evga version of the Galaxy GTX 670 GC 2GB, which went out of stock 1.5 months ago

Fair enough, there isnt a lot of difference between most of the stores realy, but looking into the cost of there postage can be the deal breaker. Also customer service and warranty claims is another. :)

If stonebridge computing was still going today id still be shopping with them, spent about 15grand at that store over the years. Best price and service they had.

Just registered to tell you this.

NVIDIA GTX670OC 2GB ASUS - $299
http://www.computeralliance.com.au/...ree-diablo-iii-mouse-pad-pn--gtx670-dc2og-2gd

Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX 670 WF2 - $299
http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/n670wf2-gigabyte-nvidia-geforce-n670wf2-p-60376.html?sort=2a

Edit: The Asus seems to have gone up to $349.
Wow, that is awesome. Thanks. I might not get the gigabyte just due to the fact that I'd rather have something which
a) Looks good
b) Has a better cooler
c) Comes pre-OC'd

I'd have to consider the asus and maybe the gigabyte.

Why would $50 scare you off? I still recommend you get it, or the evga if you haven't purchased anything yet.
