I agree with if you, What I meant to say was that hd5850 at $259.00 is way way way ahead on performance/price ratio from Nvidia's cards.... That just is it....
I really don't think nvidia can drop that must their cards prices....
I like AMD, it's true, but I use Intel, and owned nvidia cards all my life, since Gforce2 GTS up to now that I'm with a hd3870...... I really hope the green team does well too, it's better for everybody.

I got you inferKNOX. I like these different bundles, but it would be sweet to offer the Dirt 2 Game as a freebie with the cable. 63lbs for a cable is ridiculous. Why does it weigh so much?
