Price is high because of no competition.

There's also the benefit of getting reference cards before they revise the design for a cheaper C
PCB.

I just ordered one! AAAHHHHH FUUUU~UU YEAH!!! (<-- is that ok to write? wanted to express my feeling then smile.gif)

When I first saw it actually had arrived here, I went to my favorite webstore (which was the only one that has it now).

They had then 79 in stock, right now its 18 left.

I gonna build a new pc, but I want this card now. I still have to wait for the waterblock to be released, so why not get it now for this computer in the meanwhile?

But I wonder, can I just stick this one into the computer even though my 5870 is still in there?

Since I can't just remove the 5870 easily, its part of the waterloop here.

BF3 in eyefinity with a 5870 can't run 5760x1200 decently at all.

7970 looked very good from all the reviews, especially with all that crazy overclocking potential. I was on a fence, should I come to the red side since no 28nm from nvidia on horizon, should I wait for kepler...

Newegg stock was depleted pretty quickly, and so I thought the choice was made for me... And then my page monitor plugin beeps that "hd 7970" search page has changed... Damn... Now I'm out of $589, and one Asus 7970 is coming my way... biggrin.gif

Well, today is my BDay anyway, so happy b-day me I guess :-) (and missis didn't say a word) biggrin.gif

Those XFX Double D versions are selling for £560 over here in the UK eek.gif : £560 minus 20% VAT [tax] roughly works out to ~ $720 sozo.gif

I had 2 ASUS's in my basket first thing this morning but my credit card company flagged it as unusual activity and vetoed it sozo.gif By the time I'd got off the phone with them, they'd sold out...

However, I still bought 2 Sapphires though biggrin.gif

Arriving tomorrow, put me down!
