Occasionally a very good online deal on an NVIDIA GPU comes up… instead of posting new threads each time, maybe this thread can be a convenient place to share.
This would also be a good place to post availability of Fermi boards (which at the time of this post are still hard to find at any price.)
I’ll start first with a very good deal: Currently you can get a new GTX260 for $160.
And follow up with a source of GTX470 at Tiger Direct. They’re overpriced at $410, but at least they’re available today, April 17. These are the “superclocked” eVGA versions which are 3% faster than the stock GTX470.
If you’re desperate for a Fermi, check eBay, but be very careful to buy from sellers who have the card in hand… more than half the current sellers are just saying they’ll ship “when cards arrive.”
