Yes, and I can't believe they only released 2 cards. A bunch of variations on those 2 cards but still only 2. I got my 5870 at the end of November. It's still hard to get a 5970 but they already have a whole page of variations on New Egg.
The idle power and the temps can't be beat on the ATI cards. Sure the Cuda core may be better for scientific uses but isn't that what the $1500+ quadro cards are for? I say work on the gaming and visual performance first, then add in what else you want. This is why they petered out, they were focusing on the wrong things. My computer build is the exception now days, it's just too expensive for most people, look around this entire website and see what most people have, ATI and AMD.

Like I said I'm more likely to get a second 5870 and a $100- card for physx and keep the rest of my money. Maybe a core i-9 is in the works, after everyone figures out how to O/C them.

One more thing is these guys that want to fold using these cards are just nuts, you look at most of thier rigs and they are aging core duos and the original quad core machines. They need the GPU points because thier CPU's can't cut it. I'm going to have to give it up during the summer because of the heat it creates, which drives up the A/C costs & add that to the folding costs. It may be heating the house now but I don't want it for the summer.

BTW, General E, I voted a while ago.

Yep your as fortunate as your dog is cute, little sweetie!, but what you say is true. There is always gonna be the latest and greatest crowd (I know your story and you're definitely not one of those) who have to have the cutting edge tech no matter the price. I wish I had half their budget to fulfill my meager aspirations for what I think would be a kickass computer. Then there are the rest of us who know the value of what we're spending and that's why it's kind of insulting to me that new tech is so damn expensive. A gpu that requires you to have a substation connected directly to your house, can cook your dinner just place pan on topof the 'ole computer case and then charge Ferrari prices for Corvette performance. It's insane! I used to be an Intel and nVidia guy, but they got to expensive to afford anything but the low end stuff. That's why I switched to AMD and Ati. Their bleeding teeth top of the line stuff is priced the same as the other guys middle of the road stuff, 58 and 5970 excluded(damn supply shortage). Phenom II x2 555 Callisto=$100. Core2 Duo E8400=$167. Now I understand Intel and nVidia may OC a little better, but is it worth extra dough to have to shell out? No frakkin' way!

^^^THIS!

the only reason im willing to spend as much as i am on my planed rig is because i have been saving for a few months AND im trying to build a rig that will last at least a few years.

but im NOT spending 550 bucks on a some what of a disappointment of a card

You're very welcomely!

While we're on the topic, I think I'm swapping out the H50 for air, guys. It's a great cooler but maybe it's cos I've never dabbled in liquid cooling before but I just get sketched out leaving the computer running 24/7 knowing water is getting swirled around in there. I know there's been only 1 documented incident so far and even then Corsair was good enough to pay for the loss (as far as I've heard), I think I'd be more comfortable with air.

I'm looking at the Noctua NH-U12P, Venomous-X, Ultra-120, Megahalems, the True Spirit and also the Titan Fenrir which has been showing impressive cooling for the price point.
