Well, better than most of the deals I've seen of late. And it is not sold out yet which means, that maybe I will be able to find a Turing card (read, last gen) at MSRP within the next few months.

In for one to replace my R9 380. The market is crazy enough right now that I may be able to eBay my old card and get more for it than I paid for this.

God $300 for a 1660 Super? What a joke this gpu market is. Freaking ethereum screwing gamers every couple of years now. Annoying they make it so it can't be mined on ASICs.

Does 380 actually sell for much? I thought about selling my 1660 Super but after ebay and paypal fees I'd need to sell for right at $300 + shipping to break even on what I paid, and that seemed on the higher end of what used 1660S were actually selling for there. I'd probably do it if I could actually find a PS5 in stock I guess though.

Sorry, I was being a bit facetious and that doesn't come through well in text. They aren't worth that much on eBay, but they are worth a heck of a lot more than they were 6 months ago. Give this GPU situation a few more weeks, and who knows?

Yeah, really about a year ago they really weren't worth much at all. Now you might get a decent amount for it - let's say $50 after fees and shipping for sake of argument - and putting that against the ~$300 for this card it's $250 for a 1660? Not great but not as freaking silly as some of the other prices out there. You could pay that for an RX 580 and way less performance.

Blech, I read the SC as Super when scanning the title. Ouch.
I know. EVGA has "SuperClocked" and "SuperClocked Ultra" brandings, and they have NOTHING directly-related to NVidia's "Super" and "Ultra" brandings for GPUs. It IS confusing, especially at first glance. Probably intentionally so.

Wouldn't call it intentional. My GTX 970 was an EVGA SuperClocked model so I know that name has been around for a while.

But Super != SuperClocked lately at all. Super models have GDDR6 vs GDDR5 and more cores, and are possibly clocked higher. They should have come up with a better name for these, like Gold (Au) or Platinum (Pt) maybe (Ti is already taken). Not a huge difference, but it allows the refresh of a line to match the performance of the previous generation higher end models (i.e. 1650 Super is roughly equivalent to older 1660, 2060 Super is roughly like older 2070, etc.).

Speaking of Ti, MSI had a GTX 1070 Ti Titanium. No, not a typo. "Ti" = NVidia branding of that GPU, "Titanium" == MSI branding of card.
