Newegg already bought these cards and now they have to sell them. They don't want to lose anymore money. That's why the price is after the rebate. Once a retailer runs out of stock and gets a new batch they will pay less for them and be able to sell them cheaper.

Gotcha

it does fine with the gpu usage going nuts, but performance is noticeably bad when clock speeds jump from stock to 450hz. it doesn't happen if the card is overclocked.

Hmm, I haven't noticed any performance hits with mine. Maybe they'll fix it in the next set of drivers. 12.6 isn't that bad for the time being.

Would you guys recommend me setting up an Eyefinity or just using one monitor? 50C idle seems really high to leave it going 24/7. Maybe my 6870 was that high and I never noticed though.

It was probably even higher than that. My temps are WAY lower than my old 6870's. What case do you use and what's your airflow setup like? You could just disable one of the monitors when you aren't using it. Then when you want to use it again right click your desktop go to "Screen Resolution" switch it back to "Extend these displays". When you want to disable one then select "Show desktop only on 1" or "Show desktop only on 2". That will disable one of the monitors for when you're idle or not using one of the screens.

If your cards temps are fine under load then those idle temps shouldn't be a problem.

I was playing Borderlands 2 earlier and it peaked at 70c. But I turn off my 2nd monitor whne I game.






As for case, I have a NZXT Gamma witha couple additional fans.

Confused.. I'm running a monitor (DVI) and TV (HDMI) as an extended desktop from a single MSI 6870. Playing video and browsing Firefox atm.

Seems to be downclocking....? Should it not be doing that? Drivers I think are Catalyst 12.8...

I have had nothing but trouble getting it to crossfire with a second identical card if that information helps at all.....
