that is pretty expensive
in the us that card sells for like $175
so you end up paying about 80 bucks more

I am looking at that card, and it's around $215 US on newegg. Know anywhere I can get it for $175. That would be great, as right now I can only pay for it, I can't really "afford" it

399 for a BFG that's overclocked 20mhz is a terrible deal

You can just as easy do the OC yourself

that's around $204US


we can get it here for around 185, so plus shipping, 204 seems fair
