Decent price without any rebate hassles.
Would have picked this up if I didn't just buy the gigabyte gaming model.

FYI the LE is downclocked from the non LE. I don't know if it overclocks just as well.

I think this is a good deal, but just so everyone knows, AMD will be releasing their new cards in a few weeks and that may lead to some price slashes, especially around the 970 level.

Nvidia and AMD react to moves by each other, though. If AMD slashes prices on a similar card to the 970, Nvidia typically follows suit in order to remain competitive.

You're seeing a lot of slight sales on the 970s right now in likelihood because they know a price drop is coming and they want to push people over the edge into buying the cards before they have to price drop them. If you're buying a card now, it should be because you want Batman and Witcher as otherwise it's better to wait.

From one of the reviews: "If you didn't know, the LE ships from MSI with lower clock speeds than the original. It was also intended to sell at a slightly lower price, but still provide the advantages of a custom PCB and cooler."

"LE" cards have historically been lower-end cards with comparable lower prices to boot, however there've been plenty of other "regular" clocked cards for not much more money recently, I'd avoid this one, it's really not enough savings to justify a downclocked card. If this were $250, maybe.

I believe the point he was trying to make was when AMD's new cards hit (soon), they'll likely force an NVidia price drop. Also, from what I've heard NVidia's 980Ti is hitting before AMD's new cards are too (which is supposed to be in the next couple of weeks). This may also bring current 9** card prices down.

It should drive all competitive products down as well.

You think the price will drop more than $60? ie the selling price of the 2 games

much better deal than that crap 960 with 2gb ram they had on slickdeals the other day for 165.00 even if the card only lets you take advantage of 3.5 gb its still good for the next few years.

i own 2x MSI GTX 980s and they are a beast for any game at 2560x1440

This card should overclock to a a stock 980

to the people who follow such things, is a real price drop a realistic expectation with the influx of new cards happening in the near future? Thank you.
