Not a $390 difference. Probably over $400 with shipping and tax.
If I gave you an F-350 with all the bells and whistles, but it was a couple years old, yet in mint condition- how long would it take you to purchase a new truck? Especially if the F-350 I gave you did everything you needed with ease? Would you be willing to shell out over $40k in a couple years for a new truck just because it got better gas mileage while producing more horse power and having greater torque?
I've a lot of better things to put that $400 towards right now. I'll get a new card soon enough. When I can get a card along the lines of the GTX670 for right around $200 I'll start considering it.
