Just went to PC store to pick up some networking gear and they were bragging about the 980 they just received. It was tagged $999AUD.

I laughed and left with my $30 modem.

EDIT:

Looked up some other stores. PCCG and MWave with same prices.

You do know the 980 is just another 780 ti right... check out the benchmarks...

Yes FPS performance is similar. Though arguably the new tech features and lower wattage make 980 a better choice.

But whats that have to do with Aussies getting ripped on the price?

Those cards are going to e rare and invidia pulled a fast one and will be sending out limited supplies out so they can make more money therefore bringing the value higher than they really are.
