I would love to have one of those, but I just can't imagine a scenario other than winning the lottery where I could justify spending that much for that card.

Almost pulled the trigger on one last night. But, thought I would sleep on it. Still havent purchased one. I like my Devil 13 very much and I know the Ares is the king of the hill. Cant bring myself to dish out $1,500. One thing that irritates me is every 7900 series product includes the free crysis3 bioshock game download at Newegg except the Ares II. Come on, they are not adding the free games for a $1500 card :rolleyes

Went on Newegg business. They are showing 20+ in stock. Not leaving the shelves very fast.

Well when you can buy 4 reference 7970's or 3 ASUS ROG Matrix 7970's for the price of one Ares 2 they aren't gonna sell that fast. It should be $300 cheaper and just ditch the fancy metal case.
