Yeah the premium that people in the UK pay on games and components is ridiculous. Also SgtNick there are many cheaper 640mb 8800GTSs than $410. No need to spend the extra for a BFG. Just get one of the other good brands that are much cheaper.

Don't know why. The UK is soooo expensive right now. Gas is $10 a gallon, cigarettes are $10 a pack and pc parts are outrageous

I already placed the order. I tried to resist but t was sooo pretty... :drools:

I spent more than I should've, probably around $40, but I don't regret it. I was paying for the warranty and the customer support more than anything else.

Newegg doesn't ask brits to pay a premium to compensate for the difference, do they?

Why buy that monster? I takes up 270watts! Thats rediculous! It costs something around 600$ to buy and it costs almost the same on the electricity bill.

You can turn the heater of at home and let the heat your house with the thing..

Anyone know/think/heard rumors of an r600 card coming with a preinstalled waterblock like the 8800gtx from bfg? I don't know if DD has an exclusive with Nvidia or BFG, seems like a good idea though. It'd save someone like me, who's going to get a block for the card anyway, some cash.

I am so tempted to get an 8800 GTX right now. But I know the moment I get my hands on one, the R600 will be released within a week and the 8800 GTX would have about a $150 price drop. Or at least something along those lines.

Ok, weren't the demo units supposed to be in people's hands on Valentine's Day, over a week ago? I was really hoping for some real benchmarks by now, what gives? Or did I misinterpret the information?

BTW, my PSU bit the dust last week, so I upgraded to 700W to prepare for R600. I'm one step closer...
