A quick froogle is showing the card at a $300 price tag. Couldnt you just get a 1900 for cheaper and more horsepower? Granted this will use less power on the 80nm but...<br />

It will have digital VRM's and the ability to overclock better. It also is being made for the AGP format i believe

Heck yes it is! <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> Hopefully the AGP version is decent and can fold. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

It is? :***:<br />
Isn't it going to saturate the bandwith to an extent on AGP?

</div>Nope. AGP still has enough bandwidth to handle it.

Thats a bunch of bull crap.. i hate when companies are like OMG we have created this uber card and its only 199$ and then when its about to come out there like lets pump the price up to 299$..... I was looking foward to this card for my agp system until they jacked the price up to ~300$ from the rumored ~199

</div>They sell them here already for 182euros, way cheaper then any 1900 card. You can get 2 and stay under 400euros. Crossfired they wil be kicking for the cash!<br />
<br />
Im thinking about getting one but also tempted to wait for DX10.. Dont know what to do <img src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" /> my x800xt is doing fine for now. Im waiting to see some really good reviews so that I compare the performance of the 2 and decide if I want to wait. 2nd gen DX10 cards will take a long time to be available.

By the time these things hit DX10 we'll have to start getting new cases called extra LONG cases. Man these cards are loooooooong. I thought my 1800 was bad compared to my 800 whew.

Everyone quit flipping out. Different companies will price the card to their likings. The Sapphire version on Newegg is still $199, and it's clocked higher than the rest!!!

Its not clocked higher. Its clocked higher then Ati's reference clocks. The version with the uber cooler from Gecube is clocked the highest.
