    The UK prices are insane!

    I can get a XFX HD7970 with a lifetime warranty that allows you to remove the HSF for £350 in the states.

    The same card was around £416 at the beginning of the day according to Hexus.

    20% if you really feel the need to declare

    Even then it's only £420 with a lifetime modders warranty.

    Newegg had seven models in stock until they sold out. FIVE of them were around £420 to £430.

    Re: News - AMD Radeon HD 7970: Launch-day pricing and availability

    A good mate in Canada tells me he can get XFX 7970's for $529 Canadian locally. So for the same price as a single water cooled version from OCUK I could get a pair of water cooled 7970's with lifetime warranty

    I'm running out of excuses to spend my brass in the UK.

    Re: News - AMD Radeon HD 7970: Launch-day pricing and availability

    We thought AMD had priced them a little high.. clearly they should have sold them even higher to partners if retailers are able to up the prices so continuously.

    (just market demand/supply unfortunately - competition doesn't work if a retailer knows they can sell out their allocation anyway so there's no incentive to lower prices)

    Every single time, I could just copy and past everything I wrote from the 4xxx 5xxx 6xxx release and it would be as equally valid on this occasion.

    WHINGE WHINGE WHINGE WHINGE WHINGE WHINGE WHINGE WHINGE WHINGE!

    I want shiny new card and I have decided what is a reasonable price for it. I want it NOW!

    Anyone ever heard the phrase "good things come to those who wait"

    If economies of scale allow the cards to be sold for sold for close to american prices in the UK with a reasonable profit margin, once supply is better, the prices will drop.
    There is nothing wrong with making a better margin on an item you are guaranteed to sell out of even at a higher price.
