Didn't see any other topics about this, but a killer deal for anyone who was planning on getting both!

"Killer deal"=$20 off a game (that'll be the same price on GMG before launch anyway)

The killer deal part is the performance you get from a $549 card :P

Also:

579.99-549.99 (cost of the card alone) = $30. Since BF4 is retailing for $60, that would make it $30 of savings. I'm sure you could get it cheaper if you wait, but atleast for me, this is one of the few games I'll purchase on day one.

That's not a deal when that's the price.

Wow, that's awesome.

It's a really good deal for what you pay for, I was honestly expecting somewhere around $600 with the BF4 game.

Tempting to upgrade to get those extra frames, but I'll hold off for a good while.

I've heard that AMD's new cards are hot and have artifacting and stuttering issues.

I'm going to wait until Mantle, DirectX 11.2, and benchmarks of the cards start popping up before I consider getting one of these cards.
