Help please! I'm looking to buy this video card and so far the best price\reliable supplier I can see is at Paradigm PCs for $564.00. (still not cheap)
If you know of a better price please feel free to recommend it as I have already gone over my budget :(

That's pretty much the cheapest you'll get a "new" GTX 670 (unless you go second hand). However, why do you want a GTX 670 specifically? The recent release of the GTX 780, and the upcoming release of the GTX770 will push prices down, but I'm not sure by how much more. Just to give you a bit of an idea, the AMD HD 7950 goes for about $495 and they have great performance comparable to the GTX670 (and they overclock insanely good)

Thank you for the reply.
It's not so much the 670 card that's got me locked in but more or less the value for money within my price range.
I've considered the 7950 and it is in par with the 670 in terms of price and performance. The 780 you mentioned is a beast but that's a whole new level.
Pb has the evga 670 for $516 at the moment which is quite tempting

Thank you for the replies.

I've decided to dig a little deeper, I found out that EVGA have released a new more powerful version of this card called ' EVGA GeForce GTX670 FTW Signature2 2GB and they are about to implement an international warranty scheme.
If this is true i can pick up one of these bad boys for around $350USD+ shipping which still workouts a better deal than anywhere else here.

I'd be a bit careful - say US$20 for shipping = US$370.  At the current exchange rate that's NZ$465.  Add NZ$106 for GST and the IETF fees and you're looking at NZ$561 total.

EVGA already offer international warranty, I bought a GTX 660Ti from the US and had it RMA'd in NZ. Just beware with the international warranty, if they don't count it as DOA issue then you would have to pay shipping to Taiwan.

I always buy the cheapest of the GPU range (from a good manufacturer) that I'm looking at, then overclock them myself. Generally speaking, the amount of extra performance that you get from a "special edition" card in the same GPU range, is not enough to justify spending all the extra money. But that's just my opinion Smile

Either way, let us know what you end up going for, and your experiences with the product
