evga seems to be a bit lower on the cards (at stack speeds) than most. XFX & PNY always seem to be very high in price. I spent 339 per card so I am looking at about $300 cost per card. Then I swear to God, this will be my last upgrade for a while. The kids are starting to complain about the ziti & butter supers

Bound to perform better? C'mon, leave the fanboyism in the bag. With the right overclocking and CPU, the 3870x2 is the best on the market right now.

It might perform a little better, I don't know, but unless it kicks the 3870x2 to the curb in every single possible way, there's no way any...intelligent consumer is going to sink 600 or more bucks to get something when they can get something that's almost as good for 150 less.

Then again, if you have nothing else to do with your money...

I just think this is financially stupid for Nvidia. If they priced it, say, at 500, that might be worth it, especially if it does slightly outperform the 3870x2.

Looks to me like the 3870x2 still has life, although it depends on the performance whether that is the life of the ultimate card on the market or not.

I can't imagine it weighing much more than an 8800 Ultra, unless maybe they used a gold/platinum HS. They are better conductors. Of course, the card could cost in the tens of thousands of dollars at that point. Some jack-ass would pay it, I guarantee it. Like the $1000 gold plated RAZR phone.....what is wrong with people?

That was me going off on like 3 tangents
