    It's OK, I was just being facetious, commenting on how even bad (value) cards now sell out in a jiffy...:p

    OcUK do not appear to have launched their cards yet. £300 should get you a basic model with some being more. I know the 6600 is historically overpriced, but I justified ordering one by considering the potential cost to change from my current card. Historically a card would sell for much less after 4+ years of use than it would at present.

    Additonally, the 6600 will be more power efficient at (multi monitor) desktop and under load than my RX 480.

    why oh why dont ocuk just put the fing prices on the first page you see the product. instantly makes me go off the sales page and go elsewhere. never used to be like this and many customers will do the same. people just want to see the product price. not go clicking through link then another link . bad design.

    and they still sell, OC is a business, most business is about making profits and lots of them, so why folk so surprised?, plus gpu's have been at silly prices for ages now, not as if its stopped those from buying, i bought a series s instead and happy with that,till it all dies down in a few yrs,lol. businesses laughing all the way to the bank, because folk keep buying doesnt matter how high the price goes, there still be buyers. and if if you think for one minute businesses give a toss about its customers, think again.
    if no one buys prices fall, simple economics how much can we shaft customers until they say enough:cry:
