    Who did the research for this? lol

    Just from a quick look I've found almost every gpu on that list for cheaper

    Example:

    Or is this a case of advertising for these etailers?

    Yeah Im not sure thats exactly the "bang-for-buck" article you want it to be. Couple of those are slightly overpriced and a few shouldnt even be on the list...no point paying roughly the same price for something 2-3 generations behind.

    EDIT: dammit [MENTION=21]The Joker[/MENTION] beat me to it

    Not quite sure why something like this would be posted...I get that they want traffic to the site to increase but throwing together random gpu's from different generations at not great pricing then giving it a headline like "Best value graphics cards you can buy in South Africa " is not the way to go about it.

    Would you guys like me to put a list together for you? (I'm not being a dick btw, I'm offering).

    Ironically a colleague and I were just looking at GPU pricing and then I saw this article, I agree these prices are way off, I mean you can get the Galax GTX 960 for R3,699.00, I thought it was a sponsored article and nope doesn't appear that way just badly put together

    Yes please I'm sorry i Love MyG but when they put articles up like this( [MENTION=23304]Jamie McKane[/MENTION]) and the "best gaming deals" where 0 research is actually done makes me Sad. I really need a new Gcard but i'm waiting for the new Gen to be released in order to hopefully drop old gen prices
