ASUS GTX660 TI-DC2O-2GD5 - Overclocked GTX 660 TI 2GB DDR5 + Borderlands 2 & Assassins Creed III Downloads - $239.99 AR with in-store pick up @ Frys
Starting 2/1/13, Fry's will have the ASUS GeForce GTX660 TI-DC2O-2GD5 for $239.99 after $50 instant savings and $20 mail in rebate. The ad shows you also get Borderlands 2 and Assassins Creed III downloads with it.
The fixed the price online to be back at $259.99 before rebate. Still not a bad deal for $239.99 after rebate with 2 games.
I'm not sure if you would get the game downloads if you order in on their site. They did a similar deal with a PNY 660 ti a couple weeks ago and you had to ask them for the download codes at the register.
higher msrp? i thought these cards start at around $300 o.o
Not "higher than" MSRP, but the ASUS cards have a slightly higher MSRP than the reference or most other models.
If you want to know why you'd pick ASUS over another brand, there are several reasons. They make a compelling argument about selecting higher grade components, and their warranty is pretty good. On top of that, i've bought several recent ASUS cards alongside similar ones from other companies and the ASUS ones seem to be cooler. The cooling assemblies are generally constructed better (MUCH better than some PNY, MSI, even EVGA and other cards) and work better. IMHO, for a similar price, it makes no sense to get anything else.
Showing in store only, no problems here have a Fry's 5 minutes away. I paid $300 at launch for my Gigabyte 660TI and it has been a great card.
$239 AR is a good deal by itself, but it also comes with download vouchers for Borderlands 2 (awesome!) and Assassin's Creed 3 (meh). Those could sell for $20 each on fleabay if you're not interested in them. Borderlands 2 is totally worth it though, I have had a blast with it and it runs like a dream on these cards.
3 year warranty. And I would totally buy an Asus card over the usually discounted brands like Galaxy and Zotac (meh and double meh).
edit - additional thought.... the rebate is good for 2 cards, but Fry's says 1 per household. So if you want SLI either take a friend with you to get 2 at once, or take a chance on dropping the card off at your car and going back in for a second one. That could vary from store to store... if they are on the shelf, probably no big deal. But if they are behind a counter and you have to engage a sales rep, it kind of depends on their mood.
