    I bought a gently used gigabyte 7970 oc 3 fan (GIGABYTE GV-R797OC-3GD) for $285 shipped. Did I overpay? I always have a buyers remorse thing going on. :laugh:

    I bought a reference MSI 7970 for $310 shipped on Anandtech in Feb. 2013, so yes, that's a great price.

    I got mine for $290 no MIR 7 months ago. Used you can find them much closer to $200 these days especially with all the people abandoning mining.

    The Powercolor 7850 and I'll be selling the two 6850s. Still haven't gotten the Powercolor working right, but thats the another story. My dad is getting the XFX 7850. The XFX is a pretty good chip, I can get 1100 core easily with stock voltage from what I remember.
