Moreover, you can get GTX 550 Ti for $115 after rebates
Also, you can get GTX 460 768MB for 130 after rebates, and it is faster than HD6790
Unless AMD drops the price of HD6790 then there is no reason to buy it.
Cut the card some slack man, it just came out. Remember how expensive the 6850's were when they first came out? Now they can be had for much cheaper.
And this card needs some better drivers, obviously there is something wrong with the numbers that i've seen. But other than that, it is priced the same as the 550 and beats it, so that is a win in my book.
