Farcry and Watch Dogs without AA, no problem. Can't say the same for AC or GTA.

Ended up buying the eVGA version from TD, got 30 off using Masterpass
Now hopefully someone will want my 760

It really sucks how NewEgg and TD don't offer Free shipping anymore on a lot of items unless you sign up for their premier account...
I would've gone to Amazon however I get charged tax now...

I might want it. Depends on price and how much/when I get paid.

EVGA 02G-P4-3765-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Dual Superclocked w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card - Newegg.com

That's the one I have.
I've barely gamed on the pc and it's weird saying that because I just got the 970...
So you can get it new for $190 AR so umm $150? shipped?\
I have all the original packaging
