Nimrod, not off of me, I'll let the fool pay the difference.

I sincerely hope they get the multitude of crossfire issues ironed out though. I had nothing but trouble with every Crossfire array I owned after paired 5870's and ended up going Nvidia. I wouldn't mind going back but AMD will have to put out a driver that doesn't make me want to punch my $600 monitor occasionally.
When I see a price cut, that usually means the competing company knows competition is near. I wouldn't be surprised if Nvidia has a big announcement soon on at least their mid range part.Edited by WorldExclusive - 1/4/12 at 8:52pm
