    i just read the review on this card and it beats the gtx 295 in some games and the 4870 x2 and uses far less power to do it omg i want this card so bad :D

    I am reading to have some HEMLOCK!!!

    5870x2 THAT is going to be the Big Daddy for 2010!

    ATI is making a fanboy out of me, I only buy the best and my last card was a 4870x2 and it owned all comers!

    Yours in Hemlock Plasma,

    I'm waiting for the price to drop below $300, probably won't take long. Probably will be a better value than nVidia's cards which will be more powerful probably.

    yeah but with them only getting a yield of 2% on those boards the prices will be really high on gtx 300 series and the performance probably wont be as high as everyone thinks.
