Might want to add that its B-Stock and only has a 1 year warranty.

Good price on a 970 though. TU

Just a suggestion, but I think you should put in the title that this listing is for "B stock items" or basically used items.

I got one of these last year for like 240 shipped and it was a great deal then. Repped, too bad I don't want a third card.

Meh. Is this really a deal at this point? Doesn't the rx 470 match this in performance?

Depends on the benchmark. For many, it runs toe to toe with 480's, its a mature product with solid drivers, and its generally running cheaper than a 480.

Its closer to a 480 and nvidia cards tend to run about 10% more expensive for similar performance due to supply and demand (G-Sync, Shield, etc).

The 470 was just released, but these are B stock as others pointed out so they don't seem too intimidated about benchmarks to qualify a solid sale on new cards.

what a time to be alive a 970 for $175

Also, as developers inevitably transition to DX12 and async compute, the 970 become less competitive relative to the RX 470/480. I'd rather have a brand new 470 than a B stock 970 but to each their own.
