This. That guys an entrepreneur. He knew they would be a hot item so power to him for spending $7,000+ and deciding to turn them for profit. It happens all the time all over the world.

Take gas for example. We all bought it when it was over $4 a gallon, right? That's all thanks to the speculators.

We get shafted daily on things that are bought in bulk like this and set upon us consumers, so why get mad at the guy that's doing it with only a $7,000 investment and not a few billion like the oil industry?

And if the government kept its greedy little paws out of oil it would be cheaper too. But back on topic: markets work like that, supply and demand, and for all we know he could be a system builder, or building a gigantic BOINC farm.

Same thing with the 5970 before it. The price (5970) started at $599, then $650, then $699 and they kept selling out. People want the fastest card.

The GTX 580 which sells $500 approx right now, from Fry's Electronics for $479.99 and after mail in rebate for $449.99 nips at the heals of the AMD 5970 in performance. Better than 5970 price/performance and play games maxed settings easily. Tested by Maximum PC benchmarks and review. But I'm off topic now so I'll digress.

Defintely not dual GPU performance of 6990 or 590 however.

Holy heck...are you filthy rich or do you spend all your money on computer parts? I am just curious is all - I got too many other interests to be able to invest that kind of money on rigs.

This. Just goes to show how AMD has the GPU market right now. You could try using an auto notify system on Newegg. It will email you if anything comes in, most websites have them.
