Micro Center Sale Price = $275.99
After 5% INSTANT SAVINGS upon approval and use of Micro Center Credit Card = $262.19
After $20 mail-in rebate (form available on Micro Center website) = $242.19 before your state sales tax
NOTE: Sales Tax actually charged on pre-rebate amount of $262.19 (unless you live in a state that has no sales tax)

Be sure to verify your available slots and that your PSU is sufficient (recommended PSU of 500 watts). This is a very thick card that takes up 3 PCIe slots. Newegg has a free Power Supply Calculator so you can input your components and see if you need to upgrade your PSU. Also, requires 64-bit Windows 7 or 10. Must purchase by 04/26 and submit rebate within 30 days of purchase.

My question is that only essential personnel are allowed on the road. Who can legally drive to microcenter and not be fined? I thought the police are knocking on businesses to shut nonessential operations. If gamestop arent allowed why can microcenter do it? Do some states not care?

In Colorado, businesses that supply "work from home technology" can remain open. Source: https://kdvr.com/news/local/list-...ome-order/

Don't Amdie Bros already know the answer? Or is this the obligatory trolling in Nvidia threads? Smilie

You are better off buying a dual fan 1660 super from EVGA direct for less than this.

According to the Micro Center website:

'As an essential business, identified by the Federal Government, our associates are working hard to serve you. We are implementing several new practices to keep our associates and customers healthy." Specifically, Information Technology has been identified as Essential Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 by the Federal Government.

As for GameStop:
"Despite a state-wide lockdown, one GameStop store in Boston had still been serving customers. The store was then found out, and ordered to close by force.

Staff members were caught selling games to customers via the store's front door, which was slightly open to allow products out, and payments in. Any employees service customers were wearing gloves, or GameStop bags that were taped around their hands. These practices were advised by those higher up within GameStop in an internal email. All non-essential stores were ordered to close by the State of Massachusetts on the 24th of March. This is one of the necessary steps being taken to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

GameStop attempted to argue that they were essential retail, since their products provide something to keep people occupied during their self-isolation. However, the company officially failed to meet the standards of essential retail, and so wasn't eligible for curbside pickup."

According to https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Com...4062vs4037, the 5600 XT has a "speed rank" of 33 and performs better in nearly all of their benchmark testing than the GTX 1660 Ti, which has a speed rank of 41.

However, in Real World use, they note the following about the 5600 XT:

"At $280 USD the higher performing SKUs could make sense for users that are happy to tinker with or return faulty hardware. During our GTAV testing reflection MSAA resulted in very poor, almost matt, reflection fidelity (the same bug appears on several Navi and Vega cards). Whilst playing Project Cars 2 our 5600 XT PC crashed several times. Given the vast number of software (and hardware) problems since day one of the 5000 series launch..."

They list the reference price as $280 for each card.

This was the deal yesterday: https://slickdeals.net/f/13967648-b-stock-evga-gtx-1660-ti-sc-ultra-gaming-06g-p4-1667-rx-dual-fan?v=1 Although it was down voted for B-stock. I couldn't find anything as power in the $210 range and I couldn't wait any longer. The next jump was the MSI 5700 for $300 before $30 rebate which I debated, but after having a bad experience with MSI's video card warranty, I just couldn't pull that trigger.
