If it is huge difference from what you can find locally, then its a good deal. I think this is from Amazon right? In this case, if they do not indicate local stock, then you may have to RMA direct with Asus.

locally from sls shops I've never seen any brand new 1660 super cards go below $320 (even pre covid), so it is an amazing deal. when I first saw the listing a few days ago my first thought was to buy and flip on carouhell it does say it ships from amazon sg though and would arrive within like 3-4 days, so I would believe it is local stock, but I'm not sure.

The stock may be in their store in Singapore, but unless they clearly specify it, you should assume that there is no local distro warranty. RMA is generally direct to the manufacturer.

Anyway, if its Amazon SG seller, you should get it next day. The delivery is generally very quick.

don't think so. the box has no stickers on it nor are there any warranty card whatsoever inside.

works fine and registered product on the ASUS website. just hoping i don't need to test the system.

1440p 144hz you need 2070 super

1660 super only can barely manage 1080p 144hz (low settings)
or 1080p 60hz (ultra settings)

Anything from Amazon (even Amazon SG), I think you need to assume there is no local distro warranty (though that does not mean no warranty), unless they stated clearly that it is local distro stock.

You probably have to RMA direct with Asus in this case.

This card is more suited for 1080p, even though you can still get games to run at 1440p.
