MSRP on the 780 is 259, but most places are listing it at around 269 and i think newegg had it for 290.

thats not smart, a lot of gamers are sticking with xp...
they should have a survey on who would get tri sli if it was available on xp.

Well after my 2nd email to Evga they confirmed its time for an RMA. Rather than be out a computer for a week while rma'ing the board then another week while i step up to the 780i, i just went for the 780i upgrade option and picked up a cheap board from microcenter. Should keep me going until my 780i upgrade comes through. Then i'll just ebay the other board if i cant return it to microcenter.

if you can finda noob then go ahead.
This is what i do on ebay.
check completed items for pcs.
and compare to what you see that has been sold, and then you get a better idea of what ppl wnat and how much they will pay for it.

You prolly already know this though since your an ebayer too.
