It depends on the cards. MSI 780 Lightning @ MicroCenter $529.99 @ Newegg $549.99
Of the seven 780's stocked at both vendors, one is cheaper at Micro Center ? Well, that's certainly indicative !

MSI N780 TF....$520 at Micro Center..........Newegg $490
EVGA SC ACX..$530 at Micro Center..........Newegg $490
EVGA Class.......$550 at Micro Center..........Newegg $540
Gigabyte OC....$520 at Micro Center..........Newegg $510
PNY.....................$520 at Micro Center..........Newegg $500
EVGA SC...........$530 at Micro Center...........Newegg $500

Notice a trend?

As any purchaser I would hope one doesn't restrict themselves to 2 retailers. rather then looking for the one that can provide the best deal.

Soon we'll know the prices.

Its suppose to replace a $139-159 card at $179-$199 its going up against far superior performance cards and unless your huge on power savings that's not such a good deal.

Seems apropos considering the owner of the card said that his i3 / 750 Ti system is pulling less than 120 watts when gaming
THAT is a simply amazing number!
