Deal of the Day – ASUS GeForce GTX 690

/ 4 years ago

Today’s deal of the day is a bit over the top I know, most of us will never see this card in our life time, in what seems to be the graphics card equivalent of a Buggati Veyron, with more power in this GPU that you’ll ever need for likely insider of the next two years, but either way the card looks fantastic, we all want one and I bet some of you will see this deal and think your dream have come true, but at under £900 I think this is actually quite a good deal for such a rare graphics card.
