eBay

Just search for PCI riser and you'll find all the risers you need.

Some are listed with free worldwide shipping:)

Be careful with the cheap stuff, some people get their cards/mobos ruined because of low quality risers

Seriously, go to cablesaurus, or I think there might even be a guy that makes them here on the forums.

Probably get one with the molex power as 7970's suck a lot of power. You might end up with a burnt MB if the power isn't enough.

Hence why you buy more expensive ones. Cheaper doesn't mean better.

Doubt it, but you can ask. When dealing with $100s in high end computer hardware, I think that $8 for an extender isn't a problem if it is a higher quality.
