Yea because it has such horrible bottlenecks and scaling

With my GX2 hitting 760/2150 stable on air, I see no need to switch.

Just my $.35
Or, there are those that are smart enough to beat the system. I paid $350 for my GTS 512 and did the step-up to the GX2. Paid $270 taxed and shipped. The idea is I took advantage of the fact that eVGA doesn't go by the depreciated value but by the price you paid. Since I had the spare cash, I had no problem stepping up to this awesome card, so it's not like I felt the impact of $600. It was $350 and then $270, separated by 3 months. Sure, the total it is high, but in reality when you go to sell anything you are LUCKY to get what it is worth, especially on eBay or Craigslist. I was able to get exactly what I paid for it when I stepped-up. Sure, technically I paid roughly $600 for it, but not at once so I didn't feel the impact on my wallet.

There's always a difference between paying over time and paying all at once. Try buying a new car all at once. Good luck.

Think 8800GTX vs. 8800Ultra people.
why not?
maybe cant max it out with stock speed and very high RES but after CPU and GX2 OC you can run on very high setting with AA in 1600X1050.
