[G3D] ASUS ARES II Review - Page 6

post #51 of 112
I think this is a great looking card. This is what you would get if you crossbread a Video card with a Borg. Way too expensive for my taste though.

They have got to be kidding, $1500? I've never had a stock 7970 that wasn't able to do 1200 MHz and they can be had for $380. So this is double the cost and six months late right before the new GPU series hit. Brilliant. rolleyes.gif

If they find buyers for 1,000 of these I would be amazed.

Its a more of a collectors item than a performer now isn't it? :3

Only 999 are made.

Collectors item GPU? lol

Is that a fancy way of consoling ones self why they overpaid for tech that is about to be obsolete with a new series launch? This "collectors" item will be worth about $50 on Ebay two years from now after two GPU series launches.

Getting laughed at by two guys whose systems are far inferior to mine. Hurts to the core. Talking big but playing small. I admit I was wrong. The 690 had no problem with the 7990 and for the price it was a much better comparision outside the 690 being built much better. This new card is a beast but would I drop 1500 on it. Hell no. I'll avoid Amd's drivers like the plague. Like Vega said Amd is far too late with this monstrosity.

Doesn't EVGA only make like a few hundred hydro copper cards?
