I am kind of bummed about this card, first the custom pcb, great it may be, wont fit my case right, and second, seeing how newegg priced anywhere from 50.00-80.00 more than any of the reviews I think that just sucks.

But thats just IMO

I was just disappointed at the price...but it has no competition so not sure why I expected the price to be lower then what it is.

450.00 maybe, but 500.00 thats all newegg. Just like the vapor-x at 479.00, you can get on ewiz for 50.00 less.

Yeah, decided to go with a custom watercooling loop instead for $200 less. My ole 4890 Toxic is doing a fine job...maybe I can find another to CF with and then I'll be golden until the 6xxx series.

Tell me about it, been looking for one on [H] & Anandtech for 2-3 months now saw one on OCN's FS forums but was too late was already sold. Few more rep to go before I can post a wanted thread on it but if I can't find one might just pick up two MSI 5770 Hawks and using that until 6xxx.

Cooling performance seems rather disappointing. I was hoping for better temps and quieter fan. Would prefer the former, but it seems neither is the case. I guess all it has going for it is it has better components which results in having your card last longer when OC'd.
