Default Price rise for Australia.

Confirmed with a reseller in Australia, price rise coming soon in line with the drop in value of our dollar.

To give an example $650 for a card will now cost $820 - 880 from the reseller.

In other words, Get in quick and buy one now before all current stock is gone. Once it's gone, prices are coming up.

In case you're wondering, it was confirmed with both MSY and PC Case Gear.

It's quite possible. They didn't specify which brands would be affected, but they did give me a hint that it's more of a price rise for all hardware.

Nah, the Aussie dollar dropped, that would only work if the US dollar rose while the Aussie dollar and other world curriencies remained stable. Anyhow if our dollar doesn't recover I'll probably never buy high end again. Was nice to buy the best of the best for once.
