End of story.
I posted a price list from multiple stores with prices from late 2009. You still want to claim you bought it for below US RRP when our dollar was weaker than US at the time, that's fine, but don't have a whinge when 7970 turns up for sale for over $600.

I only mentioned it in this thread because I have some idea what the price is going to be by looking at: US RRP, dollar conversion, historical local prices for similar products (price gouging, tax and markup). If people like you go posting fuzzy figures from some time they don't know as a reference for how much a future card could cost I can't see it helping anyone. Might as well say you bought a FX 5200 for something like ...$5 back in...uh... 1993 and um... a 8990 should cost the same in 2015.
