Sapphire Pulse 6700XT for $850, or Sapphire Nitro 6700XT for $925, which would you get? I'm buying one or the other in about 2 hours and trying to decide on which one to get.

I'd get on some sort of in stock alert service (discord, twitter, etc.) and get one closer to retail. I wouldn't even consider that card at those prices.

If you're soliciting opinions....:).

Mine is to be patient a while longer. From my perspective...prices for graphics cards are at the tail edge of their peak. Ensuing demand(even from stimulus checks) in the supply chain will drop off very quickly and "semi-normal" pricing as well as retail availability will return quicker than anticipated.

Best Regards,

Liquid Cool

I'm going to be off setting the price by selling my 2070. I have multiple offers for $600 for it. So the 6700XT should only cost me $250-325 out of pocket, plus the 2070 I paid less than $350 for a year ago. $550-625 actual cost isn't bad for a 6700XT. And that's what I'm looking at. So which one of the two should I get? Is the Nitro worth the extra $75?

purchase made, got the Nitro, and already have a buyer for the 2070 set to come buy it tomorrow (settled for $500 price tag on the 2070 just to get the quick sell)
