Wow did i grossly overpay for it, had to get the black edition was the only one i could be sure to get the computer before my vacation for xmas, this is the most i ever paid for a GPU by far.

As a matter a fact its so bad part of me wants to cancel the order...its so bad i don't think i can bring myself to actually typing the number for fear you will all point at me and laugh =x

This and all the doom and gloom reports about the card overheating and throttling down have me a little down.

I need someone to make me feel better about my purchase. I should be psyched its finally going to get here not feeling conflicted.

Good for epeen, though.
Yeah if you can manage to find one, i overpaid because i have 2 weeks off for xmas. I desperately need a PC gaming fix!!!

I sold my old rig 6 months ago because i had saved up for a new one... was a good plan until all my stuff decided to start breaking, had to buy a new bed, stove, fridge and TV the last 6 months instead of a computer.

Part of me wants to get a GTS 250 and wait for prices to return to normal with fermi but that means waiting 3-5 months? Not exactly my first choice.

Honestly, you're going to be bottlenecked by your VRAM. You still only have 1 GB of VRAM. It's not a lot for 2560x1600.

A 2GB 5850 or 5870 would have been much better.

Please tell me that you didn't buy the one on ebay for $950. There's seriously no advantage over the black edition other than the cool logo on the card and the cooler name.

LOL!!! That is too awesome.

Seriously, that baby is sweeeeeeeeeeet! I can only dream of such things. Although, I AM going to be nabbing a 5870 in a couple months here.

Be excited. You made a purchase other people can only imagine.
