Hopefully the 470's will be available in mass quantities unlike the 480's.
Rumors are quoting Mid-July. Probably for United States. Probably August for Canada. Considering the difficulty increase I changed my mind, I'll probably get the 480 instead. I'll save money on card but lose Ether.
For your riser issues I noticed you mentioned Canada Post and eBay. I don't recommend eBay for buying risers unless you know the exact ones to get and guaranteed shipping times. Too many times risers are sent from China never to show up. Not worth waiting to save $5.00 when you could be mining instead.
I had positive experience from eBay. One time the order I had(not a riser) never arrived, sent a message and they refunded the cost. They are very slow at arriving, though I've found a seller that claims 2-3 day shipping time.
Thanks, I'll consider it next time.
I am worried about Ethereum prices as well. As of right now Profitability even with 4GB version is extending to over 6 months. I've calculated that I NEED Decred dual mining to make the power costs negligible otherwise profitability drops like a rock(due to low Ether prices)
It would be nice if someone with 4GB can take a picture of their memory chip.
Oh well, I still have no choice whether I have a riser now or not. At cart Newegg says it won't start delivery until Monday anyways. NCIX isn't available until July 8th!
