Pretty good deal to tide until Pascal and Arctic Islands are released next year. Just got this deal in my email.
Why would anyone want to buy the Asus swift monitor?.. it has a lot of issues and there is already a new model out. That monitor isn't even worth $600..
What issues does it have? I know it's non-IPS, but otherwise I've heard it's pretty great.
https://rog.asus.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?175-ROG-Swift-(PG)-ASUS-Gaming-(VG)-LCD-Discussion/page2 Plenty in that link alone. Its not just the swifts. All G -Sync monitors have several issues with them. The module sux and Nvidia just doesn't want to support freesync.
You save maybe $10-$30 max, I wouldn't call buying any of the $500+ cards tiding you till Pascal, and the 750ti is cheaper at Umart.
mm, you are right. It's probably not worth posting this deal then. Though you could probably still sell cards for a fair chunk of change in order to upgrade when next year's cards roll out.
what month do next year cards roll out?
It's only been speculated that they will arrive mid 2016.
750 is a ripoff now anyway, 950 smashes it and its 20bucks more at MSY
Even the Newegg seems to offer cheaper prices for anything less than $1000.
Newegg is good. I bought my Asrock 990FX Extreme6 motherboard from there and it arrived only about a week afterwards.
So these Pascal and Arctic Island models you speak of. Are we expecting large differences in speed? I'm idly considering upgrading my desktop soon and after a few years out of the PC parts market game I'm trying to find my feet.
Rather significant, but they're a long ways off in tech terms.
Yeah, rumors are it will be substantially more powerful and cards are rumoured to hit sooner rather than later (Q2 2016).
Sweet! Last I heard was H2. I need to keep up with the news..
Regret not doing their $400 8GB R9-390 last week.. arrghh!!
I'm looking at LG ultrawide 25" gaming monitor. Is it good anyone?
I went to msy to check one out but they are really narrow it doesn't look right you would be better of getting a 29inch and remember its not a very used ratio
How is this a bargain its still a thousand dollars for a monitor and another thousand dollars for a 980ti and extra for shipping. With boxing day just around the corner I expect it to drop considerably. I want the GTX 980 to drop to the same price as the R9 390, but that wont happen yet.
Nvidia products dont drop price that easy, its really just up to the retailer.
