Those cards look like pretty good bang-for-buck cards if they'd drop the price slightly. You can get GTX460s for cheaper. :/

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

If they dropped the price by 20-30 percent these would be even better bang-for-buck in SLI

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:
