is this a good deal? Wasn't the 280x going for $210 the other day?

Would a 430 psu be strong enough to run this with an i7 sandy bridge?

Um, no, only those who ordered quite late got back-ordered. Mine is arriving this weekend.

I was about to order this the other day. I'm glad to see it dropped a bit. Now I just need the fx-8350 to go on sale, and I'll complete my build.

aren't the new cards going to be out sometime soon?

Yes, but even newer cards are supposed to be out within the next month or 2. If I had the option to wait. I probably would, but unfortunately my old card is on its last leg.

If Anyone wants to buy a barely used 280X or 270x. PM me.

280x for $190 including tax and shipping. No rebate needed.
270x for $150 including tax and shipping.

Good deal-just be aware of the limitations of your case. One of the few that has trouble in a Corsair 250D itx.
Check the mounting brackets. The card extends beyond that and then again with a heat pipe.

Also make sure to tighten the screws and maybe support it on the motherboard. Have had dual slot cards weight the motherboard down and give me random monitor disconnects.

Now like to hang my cards vertically in case as a result.
