What was the official EURO release cost of the 7990? Here it was $1000-1100.

How many people are going to even think about a 780 at 649 when the 290X is 549 or even less. I really hope i'm wrong with the 549 price and it ends up being 499
I think you might have some wishful thinking going on. Is it possible, sure. But have you seen AMD's pricing lately? Especially with "big release" items?
