Just cant believe the power consumption,people moaning about price...look at it this way,you gonna save that in electric pretty quickly,in fact by the time you get rid of it it will probably have saved you your initial outlay.thumb.gif

Power consumption from PCs isn't as much as you may think.

My brother once ran a quad GPU GTX 295 setup and a power chugging AMD Crosshair 2 mobo in an Antec 1200 case full of fans.

My dad hooked up a device to calculate the cost of running it and it came out to be a few dollars a month.

I know it sounds really low, so maybe you should all flame the **** out of me thumb.gif

On topic: If the 7870 was priced better, like $250, I would have serious considerations. Looks like my 5850 will keep me going.

Would definitely be epic. I can't wait to see what the 7990 can do.

Go and read some 7970 crossfire reviews...

Its true that it doesn't cost much, but lower power consumption still helps justify the high price. Living in California a cooler computer means running the AC less thus saving quite a bit of money. Also you can be more comfortable gaming in your room when its 100F outside.

The HD 7870 looks like the smarter choice of the two, but then again at $350, it really doesn't fit into the "mid level" price range.

If the GK104 is really going to debut @ $300 while offering ~GTX 580 performance, that's going to be the card to get without a doubt.

The 7870 is slightly faster than the GTX 570... it's also slightly more expensive.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%20600030348%20600094002%20600095515&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=100

AMD is shooting themselves in the foot right now. They are pricing themselves to be virtually identical to the previous generation of cards in terms of performance, even though the 7xxx series of cards are clearly cheaper to produce. If they want to be greedy, so be it. Just make sure you guys speak with your wallets on this one. Eventually, they will budge on pricing if the cards aren't selling.

Looks like a great card, but I'm kinda sad about all the pricing on this current gen. Maybe i'm using the pricing level of 2 years ago too much since these are basically the same range as the 5770/5750. When you look at the 7770, those are basically the same range as the 5670, which was much cheaper as well. Not to mention the high end jumped a lot. I'm guessing AMD is just taking advantage of the market since even the 7970s are still somewhat hard to get

There's always one aint there rolleyes.gif

The prices are inflated because the cards are new, in demand and have no competition..

How much was the GTX 570 at launch? rolleyes.gif
