More like $125 AR?

Value and a prudent expenditure are not always the same. That's why governments are in debt...

Yes, ultras are clocked higher out of the box. If you believe the "better" silicon story, fine, I'd like to see proof, (electron dispersive x-ray analysis, elemental analysis, or anything they can provide).

But why would anyone regardless of their financial situation spend alot of money on something when previous history shows that it's successor will be available in a few months. Bragging rights for a few months doesn't cut it for me.

I wouldn't be that crass to brag about my salary
In many subtle indirect ways, you already have.

EDIT: I'm not going to argue for or against Ultras....I can't be bothered.
