We're talking about the king of the hill here, the world's fastest single gpu card.
Of course it commands a price premiun.
Ehhh, there is another card with the same specs, minus the memory (which doesnt matter ONE bit), for $250 less.
I could see this coming in at $550 or $600 at the most, but $700 is off the chain for something that can be accomplished with a reference card. I mean hell, you can get a card WITH a waterblock on it for less and it would has a decent chance at out overclocking it due to the cooler. Even arguably the best 7970's for overclocking, the MSI Lightning and Asus DCUII are $180 or more less.
